    I just realized that had Vader not decided to go for the dramatics, he could've ended the OT right then and there by just Force-choking everyone, including the people behind the door, then secured the Death Star plans. The hallway wasn't that big, and he could clearly see the door (remember, his mask would have night-vision, so darkness wouldn't be an issue) and everyone banging on it.

    Really, Vader, you had one job.

    I don't recall Vader ever choking multiple people at one time.

    Maybe the Emperor could, but not Vader. Besides, he can only focus on those he can see or sense. If he tries to take out a whole group at once, there's always the chance of missing that one guy who's just outside of his view. Better to get them one at a time to make sure they're got.
    Besides, he's Darth Vader. Of course he'll show off. He's been doing that since he was a kid.

    Palpatine has choked two people at once, with his back to them, and without even moving his hands.
