Here is Emperor Sheev Palpatine talking about Darth Plagueis. Btw Plagueis doesn't follow the "in" rule so we need a new rule.

and this is a nice contrast when you start introducing the clones who all wore simple uniform full body armor and have simple uniform vehicles and spacecraft

Again Lucas is fantastic at some things and just bafflingly stupid in others. His scenery and lighting tends to be spot-on. If there is one thing the man was good at, it was that. Hell, a lot of his character and alien designs are amazing too.

He is the most confusing man to me. I don't understand how someone is incredibly talented in one area and terrible in others. Like not just "normal" terrible, I mean like the kind of guy that writes dialogue like the Padme/Anakin scenes.

The prequels needed Harrison Ford to stroll in and remind him that you can type this shit, George, but you sure as hell can’t say it.

Oh my christ I just saw this. He literally just disintegrates like "poof" and then you fight his fucking ghost. This is real. Someone made this.
Yes, and I played it. :lol:

I honestly really liked the first Force Unleashed. I never touched the DLC, though. :pinkieshrug:

Force Unleashed was great, dumb, fun and even though Galen was stupidly overpowered (that star destroyer shit was dumb as hell) he was still an interesting character concept in that he was someone Vader used as a way to replace his family.

He's no Kyle Katarn or Kreia though. God, I miss those two. Though I think Rogue One means Katarn really can't exist and Rebels means Starkiller can't exist.

At least give me Kreia, Disney. She doesn't contradict literally any of the new canon.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if some of Luke's speeches about the Jedi being bullshit in TLJ were at least a little inspired by Kreia's force neutrality, tbh.

I was thinking about this and I think one of the big reasons TLJ's version of Luke alienated people is that he had to fit in the kind of themes KOTOR 2 had while only having limited movie screentime to do so while KOTOR 2 is a 20+ hour videogame which gave Kreia a lot of time to explain the exact follies of the Jedi while fleshing out her character and her past.

TLJ had to rush a bunch of shit regarding Luke, Rey, and Kylo because it had like 3 plot threads it was trying to follow and it was still a long ass movie.

A lot of hard sci-fi writers are like this. They can come up with the most amazing technical concepts, but their characters are boring one-dimensional cardboard people and their dialogue doesn’t sound like anything most people would say.

George goes above and beyond even just "normal" terrible though. I watched the making of TPM and realized this when he called the Gungas (the original name he made) the Goongas and then now they're Gungans.

Also Star Wars is not Hard Sci Fi in the slightest. The main thrust of the setting is Space Magic Wielding Ninja Monks with Laser Swords, and all of the explicitly non-magical tech in the setting is abstract and unexplained without even any bullshit technobabble outside of supplementary materials.
