Something That's Been Kinda Bugging Me


Recommended Posts

He was no longer strong enough in the Force to beat him... GL says after the suit he is only 80% as strong as the Emperor. Yes, he was that specific.


Also, he probably lost any other meaning in life without Padme...

I agree Wheeljack. Vader wanted his son to help him. Palpy feared Luke because he knew Luke would be able to kill him. All Luke needed was the knowledge to block the lightning and Vader would have taught him that because for some reason Yoda and Obi Wan failed to mention that little detail. That's the one thing that bothers me now that the prequels are finished. Both Yoda and Obi Wan knew about the lightning and how to block it, yet they didn't think it was important to warn Luke? Maybe Yoda just didn't get around to training Luke because he left early in ESB, but he did tell Luke he needed no more training in ROTJ. Lucas goofed with this IMO.

Actually,Luke was able to deflect the Force Lightning with his lightsaber in the ROTJ novel. Wasn't able to keep it up for too long,for whatever reason. Anyways,I've thought about it even more and am now willing to say that maybe there was more good in Vader than he was letting on and just could not bring himself to kill Palpatine.
