    Horrifying displays of power and turning people into puppets would be some skin off a Jedi's spiritual back. And no, I don't agree training Anakin in the Force in all cool fighty ways but not all the lame Jedi ways was an option. Palpatine didn't plan for the Naboo survivors to land on...

    Yeah, disillusionment to the point of deciding to just using the Force to subjugate the will of others long term will lead you down a dark path, regardless of good initial intentions. So it might seem in retrospect, but Palpatine still risks everything to replace his apprentice, every time. If...

    This kinda thinking is how we get Darth Tyranuses. Everything after Darth Maul got defeated on Naboo was a contingency to Plan A. The second Death Star itself was a back-up plan. Don't mean the greater battle against Emperor Palpatine was ever over in Episode 4 or 5. First Order seems to be...

    How did Cloud know President Shinra at Reactor 5?

    Cloud based his persona on a story his friend Zack told him, if Zack at some point told him a opportunity he had to meet the President, Cloud would incorporate it.

    As we now know, he was neither overthrown nor defeated. the destruction of Operation Cinder was to create massive bodycounts that might or might not account for every missing person as a cover to take his loyal troops and disappear into the Unknown Region. Keep in mind that a Star Destroyer has...

    It's the Rebel Alliance to Restore the Republic. The Republic's rules prevented that Jedi from intervening, not the other way around. You can't have almost the whole galaxy live in a democracy, act as peacekeepers within said galaxy and not be adherent to it's laws. And having the Jedi as...

    Anakin didn't even want to save Obi-Wan in Clones, due to his jealousy, Padme had to bring him around to the idea, he'd rather be out there killing some more Tusken Raider children. Siding with Palpatine against the Jedi had been in the cards for a long time before Revenge.

    Hey, as long as we're agreed that these are just pretty platitudes and not even the beginnings of the plan that gets them from a dozen people on a crappy freighter in a galaxy where no one is willing to even respond to Leia's calls for help to decline to this then we're good as far as I'm...

    Can you go back to the Great Glacier?

    https://finalfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Unrevisitable_locations#Final_Fantasy_VII After leaving Gaea's Cliff, Mr. Holzoff does not let the party back into the mountains, therefore not allowing the player to return to the Whirlwind Maze where the Neo Bahamut Materia is located (although the...

    We know a Sith Lord was secretly the Chancellor of the Republic during those 10 years and had corrupted the Senate for quite some time before then. The Jedi's inability to go to war with the worlds the Hutts control I would suspect stems from this fact. At least in Qui-Gon's days anyway.

    Still, their ample resources are a result of their Republic support. Being completely outside of the Republic's rules and laws, or anyone's laws but also retain the infrastructure neccesary to provide care and relief to the slaves on Huttese worlds, or even orchestrate a mass exodus of it's...

    It was those leashed attacks dogs that were dispatched to represent the Republic in peacetalks for the Naboo conflict. Now Sidious saw them coming, and so the Trade Federation's decisionmakers never put themselves in the same room with these people that can influence them mentally. But there was...
