Why Wasn't Count Dooku in Episode I? This seems like a huge mistake to me. I know that there could only have been 2 dark jedis in the movie, but according to EP2, he would have been a good jedi at the time of EP1. Additionally, I believe EP2 said that he was on the council, but then where was he in EP1? According to the starwars.com databank, this is what it says about him: A strong-minded man, Dooku's ideas were often out of step with those of the Jedi Council, despite the fact that his former mentor, Yoda, held a lofty position in that governing body. His challenging views were often echoed by his former Padawan, Qui-Gon Jinn, another Jedi who would on occasion defy the Council. I don't understand why we never see/hear any of this if it happens at the time of EP1? I mean at the very least, shouldn't we have at least seen him sitting on the council?
