Darth Vader hops into his own ship at the end of Star Wars IV: A New Hope of the Original Trilogy. That saves Vader's life. But why didn't Darth Sidious hop into a fighter, too? Was Sidious too busy taking a bubble bath during that battle of Yavin? Did Sidious ever fight? In the six films, we see Sidious zap Mace Windu, fight Yoda, & then we see Sidious zap Luke Skywalker. But that is it? Is that all Sidious ever did? I know Sidious had to pretend to be a good guy in the first three films (the Prequel Trilogy), but did Sidious get fat after that? Is Sidious incapable of flying air-planes? Is Sidious too lazy or too old or does he fight at times or what?
