    As we know Vader Destroyed Leia's home world using the Death Star Of Course, My Question is if The Emporer Ordered Darth Vader to destroy Tatooine or Naboo would Darth go through with Destroyed his home planet and or His Beloved Wife's?

    Yes, without any hesitation. He really had no sense of remorse nor did he really care about anything at that point. I don't think Anakin ever felt any love for Tatoonie anyway, Naboo probably meant nothing to him either now Padme was long gone.

    I'd say he would do it in an instant.

    Yeah, I don't see him hesitating to blow up Tatooine unless the Force told him not to, nothing but bad memories of that place.

    Naboo.......eh, the pain of even thinking of Padme might send him into a dark side rage, which means buh-bye to Naboo. Maybe he wouldn't destroy Naboo at random, but if Palpatine told him to I doubt he'd refuse. I'm sure he wouldn't react well, regardless. Either thinking of Padme pisses him off, or having to destroy the last resting place of Padme on Palpatine's orders would piss him off. Palpatine was connected to Padme's death in a way, having to destroy Padme's home planet where they first hooked up would just be one more poke.

    It's hard to think of a planet Vader wouldn't destroy, as it seems Tatooine and Naboo are the only places he has a personal connection to.

    I think he'd blow up Coruscant if he could manage it while Palpatine was there.

    Tarkin blew up Alderaan not Vader

    But Vader might have blown Tatooine and Naboo if he really wanted to.

    The death star blew up Alderaan to make an example for planets sympathetic to the rebellion. For the emperor to blow up the loyal citizens of Naboo that got him into power wouldn't look good, and I'm not sure what message it would send- other than that the Sith don't like nice flowery planets.

    He may even be more relentless about it than if he were ordered to destroy another planet. This is because I think Vader hated his former history as Anakin. This is evident because he tells Luke that his former name no longer has any meaning to him when Luke tries to get him to find his lighter side in ROTJ. So I think he'd be more than happy to destroy the very place that haunted his mind.

    Would the fact that Naboo helped him get to power really matter? I'm sure that if Naboo became rebellious to the Empire, then most people would understand the Emperor's desire to destroy it. In fact, it'd probably show that he is very loyal to his Empire rather than harbouring on some sentimental feelings for his former home. It'd essentially show that he values the greater cause (the empire) more than any fond feeligns he may have for past memories and homes.

    I think Vader would have blown up Tatooine for ****s and giggles and without the Emperor or Tarkin's permission if he had been alone in a room with Death Star controls.

    He would have been like a rural North Carolina resident on the Fourth of July. 'Hey watch this! BOOM!'

    Naboo? ...also yes.
