*** Slavery on certain species, most famously Wookies, Geonosians, Gungans and Mon Calimari was widely practiced by the Empire, and Vader was often called to act as its enforcer. And saying that it acts quickly doesn't answer the question of what the Dark Side actually does to someone.

** Bail was a senator whereas Obi-Wan was a soldier, so technically Obi-Wan's service was in part to him.

* "[[TheEmpireStrikesBack That boy is our last hope]]." "No. ThereIsAnother." Umm, Obi-Wan? You ''know'' there is another. You were ''there'' when Padme pushed the kid out of her hooha. 20 years later, that kid sent you a transmission during ''ANewHope'', addressed to you by name, so you know she's alive. And, if I recall correctly, you let Senator Organa keep her because his wife was barren, which creates high odds that Leia is their only child. So: what's up with the Plot-Induced Amnesia? Why is Yoda telling ''you'' this?

** The Revanite Sith, who are pretty much the Dark Side's equivalent of the Gray Jedi, can indeed be "good"; they will use the Dark Side and draw strength from anger and/or hate, but they can still be good people at heart. To make things simple, let's say that Revan!Sith can be a prime example of GoodIsNotNice/GoodIsNotSoft.

[[Does The Sith Code Let You Be Good?]]

* Related to an above entry, but focused more on the Sith philosophy than the will of the Dark Side. The Sith Code, as written, just talks about how through passion, a Sith can overcome their limitations, but all the Sith we see are driven by hatred, powered by wrath, and obsessed with taking over the galaxy and instituting endless tyranny. Are there any Sith who are driven by neutral or good passions? Any Sith who read "Through victory, my chains are broken" as an incentive to overcome oppression, or "The Force will free me" as an incentive to break free of unhealthy patterns of thought and behaviour? Any Sith who draw power from righteous anger against bigotry and exploitation? Or is there something about feeling intense emotion that makes Force-sensitives automatically turn evil, no matter what emotion they feel or how they channel it?

it? Does the Force really require its users to deny the very existence of passion in themselves (which even Vulcans don't go so far as to do) if they want to be good?

[[folder: Corellian or human?]]

* According to Lucas Arts' Star Wars Screen Entertainment Han, Lando and Wedge's race is Corellian while Luke and Leia are humans, but I also read later that Han is a human from Corellia, so? Is Corellian actually a race different to humans or they're simply humans whose Corellian origins make them being distinguished from the rest for no reason?

** The lightsaber Anakin had in Attack of the Clones ended up getting cut in half while he was fighting through the Geonosian Droid Factory. He used a borrowed lightsaber during the battle against Dooku at the end, and then built a new one for Revenge of the Sith. This new lightsaber would end up in Luke's hands years later, but would be lost in the battle against Darth Vader on Bespin, which required Luke to build a new lightsaber of his own, which is a totally different design (it's based on Obi-Wan's). So that explains why Anakin's lightsaber is not exactly the same in Episode III as it is in II but it is nevertheless very similar. There are also some small differences between Luke's lightsaber in Episode IV and V, such as screws being added to the black grips on the lower part of the hilt. Maybe Luke tinkered with it a bit and "made a few special modifications of [his] own". Obi-Wan's lightsaber also looks slightly different so perhaps it's common for Jedi to periodically upgrade or replace parts on their weapons the same way you might replace components in a car or computer. They are technological weapons after all.

** Jedi don't just kill helpless opponents they don't like because they feel like it. That's consistent throughout the movies, that it's a Dark Side act and it's evil and it will make you evil. Luke almost does it and almost becomes evil. Anakin does it, and becomes evil. Mace was extremely conflicted, because he had a serious dilemma: go against all of his training and his morals and maybe end up falling to the Dark Side himself (wouldn't that be ironic?), or try to arrest a highly dangerous prisoner who might escape or walk free anyway and continue doing evil Sith things. He decided it was worth the risk to kill the last known Sith Lord in the galaxy, but it's understandable he hesitated. This also explains why Obi-Wan would not just kill Grievous, because the Jedi strongly believe (and there is good evidence supporting them) that the Force works like IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim.




to:

*** To the above two points: Even if nobody knows that Vader is Anakin, Luke would still have to reconcile that his father the nobody spice-freighter navigator had the same name as galactic war hero Jedi general Anakin Skywalker. That is, unless Palpatine and the Empire suppressed all knowledge of Anakin and the Jedi in general (explaining how Luke knows nothing about them or even what the Force is). The Empire's propaganda could have easily taken the line of "the Jedi were evil, they betrayed the Republic, they're dead now, so stop talking about them" and written them out of all the history books (or history holograms or whatever) and banned all mention of them like the Roman practice of ''damnatio memoriae'.
