** Emperor Palpatine clearly desires to turn Luke to the Dark Side of the Force because he basically has all of his father's potential, but not the crippling injuries that make him a DarkLordOnLifeSupport. To achieve this, he emotionally antagonizes Luke and then gets him and Vader to start dueling to the death.\\

'''You'd Think:''' Palpatine would just enjoy watching Luke give in to hate and anger and kill Vader, taking his place.\\
'''Instead:''' Nope. The Emperor has to open his big fat yap and gleefully tell Luke he's doing ''exactly what the Emperor wants'', forcing Luke to [[HeelRealization remember that hate leads to the Dark Side]]. This leads to Luke refusing to kill his father and remain on the side of angels. Then...\\

'''You'd Expect:''' Qui-Gon to immediately find an alternate means of transport, considering they are on a schedule of sorts. Tatooine has no shortage of starships that would take a few passengers and could no doubt spend the credits he has, much as Obi-Wan and Luke did with Han Solo and Chewbacca in ''Film/ANewHope. '' Heck, since Qui-Gon tried to ''cheat'' Watto by using the Force, why not go to a different vendor and Force Persuade them to exchange credits for a currency Watto likes? And if you're going to be a sneaky bastard, why not '''steal''' it from Watto? You're trying to cheat him ''anyway''. \\

'''You'd Expect:''' Captain Dofine to order an evacuation of all ship personnel, and the crew to ''immediately'' get out the control room, since they won't have enough time to stick around until the explosion reaches the room. He should know full well that any problem with the main reactor should be taken seriously.\\
'''Instead:''' The captain dismisses the report, believing that a starfighter could never have penetrated the ship's deflector shields, ignoring that Anakin had spiraled into the station while the shields were down unloading lander crafts.\\
'''The Result:''' Dofine lets himself and his entire crew perish in the explosion.

'''You'd think''': 3PO would urge R2 to do his best on the Falcon as R2 is a highly skilled ''Astromech'' droid, born and bred to ''fix starships'' and that a broken leg makes no difference if the ship you're traveling onto blows up in space.

Even more so, R2 even ''explains'' to him that he found out the drive had been ''tampered'' with in the first place - and [=3PO=] for whatever reason disbelieves him!
