YMMV / Star Wars: Tarkin

Go To

  • Complete Monster: Wilhuff Tarkin, after being promoted to Moff following Palpatine's conversion of the Republic to The Empire, would craft the Tarkin Doctrine, which laid out the new Empire's principles. He would then repeatedly demonstrate his cruelties as a high-ranking officer: boiling Q'anah and her crew of Space Pirates to death from the heat of a star and ordering the destruction of any ships that tried to rescue them; punishing the populace of Antar-4 with no regard to which members of the populace had been loyal to the Republic, causing many innocent deaths; and, upon his promotion to Grand Moff, taxing the subjects of the Outer Rim to starvation and engineering the torture of Jedi Knight Kanan Jarrus, even though Kanan may not know anything.

  • Heartwarming in Hindsight: The fact that Anakin treated Tarkin coldly due to his abuse of Ahsoka Tano with the bullshit trial implies that even after he fell to the dark side he still cared for her.
