In ROTJ, I sensed in Emperor Palpatine an internal conflict. I felt that there was still good in him, and with the help of maybe Luke, he could be turned from the dark side. Evidence: 1) He had a warm laugh. His first scene closes with his laughter resonating throughout the hangar of the Death Star. 2) When he said to Luke, "There is no escape, my young apprentice," he had such a sad look on his face. Such a look of pity. His good side was coming through in that scene. Thoughts?
