** Anakin mentions to Padme before the big duel with Obi Wan that he plans to overthrow Sidious and rule the galaxy for himself. Even in Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack, Vader tells Luke that together they can overthrow the Emperor and end this "destructive conflict". It's apparent that the "friendship" of Vader and Sidious is simply for each other's convenience.

** In the novel it was explained, that at that exact moment the Emperor was approaching, and Obi didn't have time to go down the slope and stab Ani. Sure, he could've Force Pushed the bastard into lava or hurled the sword at him, but he also fancies that yes, he cannot bring himself up to killing a defenseless enemy.

** The game hints at this -- there's an alternative ending, where you play as Anakin during the final duel instead of Obi Wan, and after he wins, Anakin immediately kills Palpatine.

** Why assume that the rest of the fight would've gone the same way? Palpatine probably would've instead targeted Obi Wan first, knowing that with his own power advantage, he'd force Yoda into protecting Obi Wan instead of engaging him. Yoda going in alone means Yoda only has himself to worry about.

** I think that what Obi Wan is doing is deliberately taunting Anakin by speaking as though he somehow wouldn't have a chance from the low ground. (Damn is the typing slow when the page is this long!) It's like if you and I were in a martial arts fight, and you were already on the verge of a blind rage, and all I had to do is say, "Come on, now, you know there's no way you're going to win this fight now, attacking from that stance!" for you to go over the edge and lose control of your technique, allowing me to take you down.

** Might be a combination of factors. Mace was right in Palpatine's face while Dooku was a fair ways back from Obi Wan. Mace is supposedly more powerful than Obi Wan. Obi Wan didn't roll high enough on that one particular Use the Force check (TabletopGame/StarWarsSagaEdition joke, to reflect a power, you need to beat the check by a certain amount). Obi Wan might not have wanted to as Obi Wan's combat style is supposedly much less aggressive than Mace Windu's style. Dooku was Obi Wan's master's master so he might have hoped to talk him down which is hard to do when you just zapped him in the face with Force Lightning while Palpatine was pretty much evil incarnate so Mace spared him no such mercy.
** It is a matter of style--Obi Wan's fighting style is primarily defensive, so naturally when he stops Force Lightning, he's just going to stop it. Mace's style, however, is aggressive, and in part, as I understand it, edges toward the Dark Side in that he fights better because he lets himself enjoy the fight--ergo, even when he is defending, he's doing so aggressively.

** As I recall, Obi Wan is the only one surprised at the mention of bab''ies''. I don't recall Padme ever specifying that she's having only ''one'' baby, just that she's pregnant.
** Well except for the fact that whenever the subject of her pregnancy comes up, the dialog only refers to one baby. This line for example: Ani, I want to have our baby back home on Naboo. We could go to the lake country where no one would know . . . where we would be safe. I could go early-and fix up the baby's room. I know the perfect spot, right by the gardens. Or this: Anakin: You die in childbirth . . . Padme: And the baby? Anakin: I don't know. This gives the distinct impression that until the birth no one, not even Padme, knew she was carrying twins. And if Padme did know why didn't she ever mention it? She had no reason to hide that fact and even if she did you'd think she'd have told Anakin, seeing as he's the father. Yet she has to be told by Obi wan that she had twins and years later Darth Vader, who made such a big deal about Luke being his son and searched the whole galaxy to find him and try to get him to join him, doesn't seem to know that Leia is his daughter, or even that he had another child besides Luke, until he plucks that fact from Luke's mind. It doesn't really make sense does it?

*** Honestly, a big flaw in the exchange is Anakin saying, "From my point of view..." Calling it your point of view implies you do recognize that it's only a point of view; further, people just don't argue that way. By all rights, he should have just said, "The Jedi are evil!" at which point Obi Wan's line, "Then you are lost!" would make more sense, as Anakin would have treated it as an absolute. Sure, it's a Call Forward to the "From a certain point of view" thing, but that line just breaks the whole scene for me.

** Yoda is on Dagobah because he can hide there -- he's the strongest light-side Force user around, so either Palpatine or Vader could easily sense him. So if he joins the Rebellion, it just makes them that much easier to find. Same for the second suggestion -- Vader senses Obi Wan the second he's on the same space station that's the size of a moon. He or Palpatine could sense Obi Wan and Yoda coming long before and either avoid them or just blow up the ship they're on.

* Near the end of the movie, after Order 66, Bail goes to his ship and tells the Captain they need to intercept Jedi walking into the trap; and does manage to get to Yoda and Obi Wan, but how? How was he planning on identifying returning Jedi, and for that matter how does he get in contact with Obi Wan and Yoda personally?

*** Out-of-Universe: Originally Dooku was supposed to either beg for amnesty, or try and blurt out exactly what you described. Christopher Lee (the actor) felt it was too undignified fo someone like Dooku to resort to begging and suggested this route instead.

** Possible. WMG here, its possible that he was allowing the Dark Side to speak through him. I mean, this is their big win, after all.


* During Darth Vader baptism, Palpatine's voice unexplained sounds very deep and demonic. After puttin on his hood it returns to normal. No reason is given. Is VoiceChangeling among Palpatine's powers by any chance ?

Is VoiceChangeling among Palpatine's powers by any chance ever given for this. Was he talking through the Dark Force to make himself sound more intimidating ? Or maybe he can simple modified his own voice at his own will thanks to some Sith power ?

** It could be that he was looking around for Jedi in general and they happened to be the ones he found.

Added DiffLines:

** That's a good question. I was about to say he had intel on where Obi-Wan and Yoda were going (being close to them and all) and was going toward their last known locations.

Added DiffLines:

** There may also be a bit of the sunk cost fallacy at play; Palpatine spent more than a decade slowly coaxing Anakin to the Dark Side, he may have been reluctant to throw away his pet project so soon after it had finally culminated.


* The Jedi Starfighters in Episode III. What are those retractable wings for? At first I thought they were like the X-Wing's S-foils. Open to fire lasers, closed for extra speed, yet in the film, the Jedi Starfighters are shown to be capable of firing with the wings closed, and they have the wings open even when Obi-Wan and Anakin are cruising down to Utapau and Mustafar respectivly.

* Most of the events in the second half of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith have to take place all within about half an hour, during which time Obi-Wan Kenobi travels halfway across the galaxy twice. On the other hand, in the same period of time Padme goes from barely showing her pregnancy to eight months gone. Either way, something's up. What?

** Alternatively, it was something of a [{{Xanatos Gambit}}/{{Indy Ploy}} depending on just how good a plotter Palpatine actually was. He may have intended to fight and kill Mace himself but on sensing Anakin nearby retooled the plan to accelerate the fall instead by forcing Anakin to take action instead of just hanging around angsting - this way Anakin has tied himself to Palpatine much more firmly. And if all HAD gone wrong and Mace killed Palpatine, presumably there would have been ways to release that footage to, as they did with the initial arrest (albeit craftily edited.) However it shakes out, the Jedi are screwed.

** YMMV, HUGELY. A large section of the fanbase believe Windu's use of techniques including Vapaad (a dueling form which allows him to relish in the fight and feed off of his opponent's Dark Side energies) and Shatterpoint (the ability to find the weak point in structures, events and people and capitalize on them) allowed him to best Palpatine, despite his weaker overall strength in the Force. I am one of those fans, and I think if not for Anakin's intervention, Palpatine may well have been done for.
** Seconded, YMMV. Windu's Vapaad style seems to have a really good compatibility with sith lords, as it simply feeds off the dark side opponents' aggression. In other words, it is a style which seemed designed to win against Sidious. However, moments before Sidious seemingly relents, he admits that Vapaad is not enough, they are essentially deadlocked, that it takes everything he has not to be overwhelmed by Sidious vicious attacks, and that he needs to find his shatterpoint to win. Except Palpatine's shatterpoint is Anakin. I, for one, do not see how Windu could have made use of Anakin to win. In other words, I can't find any way for their duel to escape the deadlock, one way or another, without Anakin's arrival. The more Sidious gets hurt and has his lightnings reflected, the more his hate and rage amplifies and the more he can launch his lightnings. Windu simply reflects the attacks.

** At this point, though his trust in the jedi's moral high ground is waning, Anakin is still convinced that the jedi are the cornerstone of the republic, usually selfless (or they ought to be), and they are the wall between peace, happiness and the war and horrors that the siths want to unleash on the republic. Anakin enjoys the status for sure, but it is also clear (and made clearer in the novelization) that it would only be a nice-to-have bonus, nothing more. Even the reason he wants the mastership postition is because only masters are allowed access to restricted information he believes he needs to save Padme; the moment he realizes his meditations (or Palpatine's help) might suffice, he loses interest in the position. Anakin Skywalker was at its most peaceful, driven and happy when he was saving people. He considers saving people to be the reason he was born. Whenever he is not fighting to save lives, he is plagued by nightmares, anxious about his marriage, terrified of the fact that someday Obi-Wan, or even Padme might die and leave him the way his mother did, burdened by his status as the chosen one and the expectations everyone has of him as a results (expectations that only go up to eleven when he defeats and kills Dooku in single combat), etc. Anakin NEEDS to be in a position where he can actively save people, and Padme knows it. Leaving the order in disgrace, leaving everyone else and everything behind him to be with Padme on Naboo, while initially appearing very tempting, would only cripple him and leave him wallowing in guilt and restlessness. Hence why Padme refuses to let her relationship with him impede his progression and future within the order, because he needs it to be the man she fell in love with in the first place and be happy. Being the republic hero, the dashing and audacious to Kenobi's subtle and steadfast, the reknown sith-slayer jedi/chosen one, simply IS what Anakin Skywalker is, and needs to be. It's telling that Palpatine's efforts are, justly, aimed to destroy this part of Skywalker, and the moment he indeed loses that, is the very moment Vader is born.

* Why does Annakin even want to remain in an order that forbids his marriage to Padme? Just leave and get a job doing, oh, anything else whatsoever. Why is it so important to him to remain in a group that he increasingly views as hypocritical and corrupt, and which prevents him from doing the very ordinary things he craves? The story just seems to take it as a given that being part of a suffocating order without pay is something absolutely vital.

** There's also the fact that Anakin was never very close to most of the other Jedi aside from Obi-Wan and Ahsoka, the latter of whom has left the order by this point. As such, Obi-Wan is probably the only one in the Order who knows Anakin well enough to realize what's happening, anyway.
