** We'll have to wait for StarWarsRebels to find out.out. * If Vader has quite literally known Starkiller since he was a child, and he appears to be a man in his early to mid 20s meaning that they have spent probably about 15 or so years together, how is it that it is so easy for him to dispose of him? I mean Vader only knew Luke for about 4 years and in the movies it is portrayed as if to kill Luke would be the hardest decision in the world for him to make like it would be soul-crushing. Realistically I would think that Vader should have a greater emotional attachment to Starkiller since he raised him from when he was a boy. Is it because Luke biologically being related to Vader more clearly represents what kind of family he could have had with Padme and thus wants the last remnant of his love's genes to carry on, or is Luke simply THAT special that only he could reawaken the good in his father? ** Vader probably kept Starkiller at arm's length on an emotional level. Right from the very start, he planned to use him as a tool, nothing more. The rips and cuts on Starkiller's first outfit certainly implies some abuse was involved in his training. It's also possible that when he learned his son was still alive, he actively ''wanted'' a good relationship with him, simply because he was all that was left of Padmé. It's also possible that they may have had some connection through the Force due to their relation.

!!Recently, I know they said the game's canon for the formation of the rebellion is no longer canon..... * Does that mean that everything in game is no longer canon, such as Shaak Tii's death and Galen himself?

* As far as StarWars powerhouses go, [[DarkForcesSaga Kyle Katarn]] was pretty much invincible once he got [[GameBreaker Force Protection]], and both [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Revan and The Exile]] were beasts in [[MagicKnight the use of the force AND skill with a lightsaber]]. The Apprentice pales in comparisson to the aforementioned Jedi Knights, and they were not branded {{God Mode Sue}}s

** Leia in ''A New Hope" did remark to Vader about her arrest that "the Imperial Senate will not sit still for this". Presumably the Emperor knew that executing Garm Bel Iblis, Mon Mothma and Bail Organa, three Senators from three very influential worlds was a huge political gambit, even for him. IIRC my Star Wars canon correctly, Bel Iblis and Mon Mothma had resigned from the Senate at around the time the Rebellion was founded anyway, so they probably immediately resigned and went into hiding running the Rebellion. Bail Organa probably stood by his status as the sovereign monarch of Alderaan, much like how Leia hid behind Diplomatic status as her fathers replacement in the Senate. For the Emperor to completely ignore this and arrest the monarch of a core world, he'd need to be virtually immune to criticism. Abolishing the Senate because with the Death Star he didn't need it would let him do that. Anyway, in ANH, Vader seemed pretty aware of who the Rebel leaders were and was more happy that he would finally be able to dispense with them after the subterfuge the rebels had been hiding behind.

** He was picked up as random salvage and eventually ended up in Jabba's trash pit. These kind of coincidences happen all the time in the Star Wars universe.

** Versatility. Lightsabers are virtually unstoppable in melee, and like you said, not all enemies can be beaten with the Force. Using a lightsaber doesn't make him less powerful, gives him options when people get in his face, makes it a lot easier to block blaster bolts, and means he doesn't get chopped into pieces by the first Jedi who resists his Force powers. After all, the point of Starkiller is Vader uses him to hunt down Jedi. In the novelization, Starkiller very nearly gets killed by Shaak Ti's superior swordsmanship. Not using a lightsaber would be CripplingOverspecialization.

** Back to the original question, maybe he picked it up from PROXY or something, who mimicked somebody who used it, went up against Starkiller, used his mimicked Force Lighting against him, and after or possibly during the fight Starkiller emulated it, in much the same manner he emulated the Soren lightsaber form from PROXY, despite the fact that the droid is incapable of perfectly simulating either.

Added DiffLines:
** It's because most people have only seen the movies, which thanks to budget and special effects limitations never go anywhere near this level of power, (which they probably would have otherwise) so people think Starkiller is OPed. Those who have gone into the EU deeply enough will recognize that what Starkiller does is pretty much par for the course from what Force Users often do, even tame in some ways, and even if this wasn't the case all other Force Users in TFU series are pretty much the same. So it isn't so much that Starkiller is overpowered, it's that the EU and TFU series in particular in general is overpowered.

Added DiffLines:
** Maybe Starkiller isn't completely evil is BECAUSE he was raised that way by Vader. Ask yourself this, if your parents abused you constantly your whole life, wouldn't you hate them? And if they did, then taught you that being a completely psychotic mass murdering machine was okay, wouldn't you NOT be, at least not completely, just to spite them? You're also forgetting PROXY, who despite his constant attempts to kill Starkiller is an otherwise kind and loyal friend of his through most of his life that may have given Starkiller a grounding influence. Then Juno and eventually Kota enters the picture and gives Starkiller even more reason to go against what Vader taught him and there you have it, good guy Starkiller. Ol SK was never completely a good guy anyway, he was still influenced by the way Vader raised him throughout both games, as Kota put it "filled with dark thoughts" the whole time.
