Not only do I feel Yoda on Coruscant is appropriate given the PT, I think it would make a lot of sense even in terms of the OT as well. I know that staement is unclear, but it will be more obvious what i mean as the post goes on, so bare with me. Now then, people say Yoda was good on Dagobah because he was in touch with lots of living creatures, which he supposedly is not on Coruscant. However, lets pause for a moment and think this statement over. Consider the hundreds of billions of humans that live on Coruscant, the Imperial Senate, and how many more traffic through there daily. Now consider the millions of parasites and virii these humans play host to. Now consider all the "pests" like insects, rats, etc, that could live on such a world, especially since Corsucant doesn't seem to have any natural predators around. Now all the organic material brought in as food from other planets to feed all those masses. And without trees, Coruscant must get its oxygen from fairly large stores of photosynthesizing bacteria, which as a more ecologically successful species would be more populous than large, old trees like those seen on Dagobah. What I am trying to say is that there is a very considerable amount of "life" on Coruscant, it just isn't as obvious as the life on Dagobah. Along the same lines, people keep talking about a change in Yoda's (and the Jedi as a whole's) philosophy. First off, the Jedi aren't very reliant on technology at all in the PT. Besides the lightsaber, what exactly do they use? What they seem to be reliant on is the ability to see into the future, which they can't do because of the "shroud of the Dark Side." And still don't seem to be able to do effectively in the OT, despite still trying. I don't see how there's any change in philosophy at all as dictated by these facts. Finally, I think this thread is really talking around the larger issue of fan desire for a "more mystical Jedi Order." However, it doesn't make sense for a centralized government to have as its primary peace-keeping force a highly de-centralized organization. After all, how effective would it be if, when an emergency arose, they had to send someone halfway across the Galaxy, trekking by foot across a dozen desolate and very dangerous planets, all in search of one Jedi Master that could help them out? Let alone needing to assemble something like, say, 200 of them for the battle of Geonosis. Further, the fact that the Jedi participated in the Clone Wars pretty much rules out mystical de-centralization. The reason is that military depends on order, and that armies try to pick important battles to fight. Meaning the territory being fought over is strategically important. How would the Jedi ever get involved if they were widely dispersed hermits on remote, strategically unimportant roles? That's about all from me.
