Wow.  I hated this movie.  It was so stupid, so weak and just so overdone.  

1. Why does Mace Windu go from wanting to arrest Palpatine to trying to kill him?  Just becuase that made it seem easier for Anakin to choose to attack him?  Makes no sense, none.

2. What the is up with Padme "losing her will to live"?  That is just the stupidest reason on Earth!  Just having her die in child birth was fine, it worked, it was believable, it was neat.  The whole will to live thing was just cheesy.

3. How come with "Order 66" Yoda can feel them dying but no other Jedi can?  Oh, right he is the best, coolest....or he just needed some cheap way to explain him living.

4. Do we really think Captain Antilies would keep C3-PO and R2 for roughly 15-18 years?!  And still be flying the same ship?  Oh sorry it was the same style....but the style of every other ship changed....just not that one.

And most annoying.

5. If you love Anakin like a brother - don't let him fucking burn to death!  Just kill him mercifully![b/]  Seriously, I was just sitting there thinking - if that is what he does to his brother...well crap.  And come on!  If the goal was to kill Anakin why leave when he was still alive?  



Oh sorry one last one....when did R2 learn to squirt oil out of himself?


Thankfully I already saw this movie or I would have been pissed that you didnt put any spoiler warnings anywhere.

Anyway, to answer #1 Mace Windu was going to arrest Palpatine the entire time.  Even when Windu had Palpatine pinned down with his lightsaber he kept saying "You are under arrest!"  He didnt fight him from then on until Palpatine was shooting the lightening at him.  The lightening caused Windu to try and protect him self by deflecting the lightening back.  The other stuff is just nitpicks in my opinion.  If that is going to ruin a movie for you so be it.  Really, I could care less if R2D2 used Jedi mind tricks in this movie, I still loved it.



1 Because the emperor is EVIL, and controls the senate and courts

2 Her will to live was TAKEN from her by Darth Vader, you still do not understand the power of the dark side!!

3 yoda does have 800 years of force training to help him out

4 its not like the rebellion has a ton of money, why wouldnt he still have the same ship / droids?

5 Yes get closer to Darth Vader so that you could be sliced / burned as well, he loved him, that didnt blind him to what anakin has become.

I dont really expect this to help much, but its the best explanation i can give

A couple of disappointments were the lack of explanation of why R2 doesn't fly in the OT, when we clearly see him flying in the PT. I thought Bail Organa said to wipe both their memories but someone I was with said he only mentioned the protocol droid.


I believe he said to wipe out both their memories.  I could be wrong.

Which still doesn't explain why R2-D2 can't fly in the OT, nor had a flexible arm which he can freaking catch with!

Yoda and Obi-wan can come back in spirit form because Yoda found out the secret(from Qui-gon) and told Obi-wan- okay that's good. But why can Anakin come back? He wasn't told the secret. If he was taught it AFTER death, why weren't the other Jedi, who were honorable their WHOLE lives, and why didn't they come back? Jedi like Mace.


Maybe the councellor knew that power as well.

It still is stupid.  Why?  Because it tried to answer a question no one had!  No one sat around going how come Qui-gon, Obi-Wan, Yoda and Anakin can communicate from the beyond.  It wasn't an issue until Lucas tried to explain it!



R2 may have had the flying equipment removed and something different installed, but where would have been a good place for R2 to fly in the OT?

Maybe Anakin found his way like Qui Gon did, and it still isnt really an issue.

So, I'm midly interested in Episode III.  I want to see the transformation of Anakin into Darth Vader etc....



The problem is that there will not be an explanation.  If ep. 2 is any indication then there won't be any really good scene which shows why Anakin turned.  He will just turn becuase he is a prick.


If you've seen episode one you know why he turns.  It is the prophecy, Anakin will bring balance to the force.  Right now it is 1000's of jedi vs 2 sith, the chosen one will make it 2 on 2, what scene could tell us more  :wink:

It has sort of been the main theme of everything sw lately.  the new jedi order books are about discovering the force as a whole, light and dark, same with kotor 2.  Ep 3 is about how anakin goes dark for the "light" reasons.
I sort of wish they would try another avenue for a story.

i am still playing, spending most of my time in space.  Mostly because I am addicted to looking at my monitor, and that is the newest game i have.  I do love the game though.  And for all the bashing it gets, there are still a lot of people on the servers.

My PC is a HP 762C

2.26GHz
512 MB pc2100 DDR SDRAM
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX420
120 GB HD

I am thinking of going to 1G of memory, and a graphics card update?

Do I have to buy 1 G of memory, or 515M?
Can I use a "new" graphics card in this old machine?
Are these upgrades worth it?


You can use any AGP graphics card, and the hottest ones on the market (like the X800) have AGP versions.

Is your 512M memory consuming one or two slots? How many slots do you have? If you have an open slot, just buy a 512M stick of RAM.



Thanx, but what is AGP 4X? 8X? Are these still compatible with this machine?

I am enjoying JtL, But it doesn't really change the ground game.  If you didn't like SWG before, there isn't anything here to change that, unless you plan on flying in space for hours on end., in which case, yes JtL makes SWG worth playing.
