    They always have the best costumes, Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Boba Fett, Revan, Grievous...(do droids count?), Ventress and the list goes on... why do they have the best costumes its totally unfair for everyone thats not Imperial Sided, unless your a clone trooper

    wellll....

    traditionally it's so the audience doesn't identify too closely with the villain and therefore sides with the 'wrong' character, meaning the paying viewer feels betrayed when the villain is killed/loses/dies/goes to prison(See Star Trek Nemesis for a modern example -as the protagonist and the nemesis are supposed to be the technically the same person, yet the nemesis wears a ridiculous purply coloured vinyl thing and the hero in recognised 'normal' attire). The heroes are usually dressed closer to 'normal' or what the audience recognises as normal (knights in shining armour, or Jedi robes) meaning they identify more with the correct character.

    But yes you're absolutely right the baddie costumes usually rock.

    An Revan I like your threads.
    (I don't mean your clothes, although I'm sure they're outstanding ;) )

    I dunno about you, but I dont remember really ever wandering around in layers and layers of hermit robes on a daily basis :p

    But its still a good point. Could dressing as a Stormy relate to being a tailender batsman and wearing as much padding as possible? [face_laugh]

    Villains usually have better costumes to make them look more stronger and cooler than the hero in the beginning.The hero looks weak at first, but when he/she fights and ends up beating the more popular villain. The fans,veiwers,readers then realize the hero is not weak, but strong.Then the hero starts to get popular.That's my opinion.

    really, just watch me, this is an age old argument ;)

    1. Good guys save worlds/bad guys blow them up
    2.Armour that doesn't even protect you from scrapes let alone blaster bolts & ships that have no shields...what the..??
    3.Opposition-winners, the bad guys appear to look cool, but in actual fact are *coughs*...lame :-B
    4.Noble/regal/respected- not bath robes ;)

    1. Good guys let things die, not right to change the "order of things"... Palpy would've whooped the Vong..
    2. Armour - looks cool - thats enough in itself. If you don't understand it now, you never will... ;)
    3. 501st popularity vs Rebel Legion - nuff said. ;)
    4. - Brown robes ***** BROWN *****
    Never was a cool colour - never will be. [face_laugh]
    Vader suit vs Jedi robes - Game over baby.



    Game, set, match.....

    evil-incarnate. =D=

    Did you just call yourself cheap? [face_mischief] lol j/k


    but anywho, that turned into a new Light Vs. Dark thread for a sec there, thought we were gonna have to call in the big guns :p

    SW Bad guys look cool because it's aimed at nerds, and nerds are afraid of cool people.:p
    Yes, that was the worst arguement ever produced on these boards but i couldnt think and its the first thing that popped into my head :)

    So essentially, after weighing all the pros and cons delivered via this thread we can now narrow it down to...
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Villains have the best costumes so they can get chicks.
