The Question Club
Anakin Skywalker seemed to have built C-3PO. He also knocked up Padme, who shot Luke and Leia out of her Amadala parts. In some twisted way, are C-3PO and Luke something like stepbrothers, since he made them both?
C-3PO and R2D2 probably have their memories wiped, otherwise they'd recognize people like Obi Wan and Vader in subsequent sequels. However, Anakin, who built 3PO and worked extensively with R2, never once made one comment in any sequel about their presence not only on the rebel front, but as robot friends to his only begotten son. Never once did he utter, "damn, what are the odds?" or "I can understand my long-lost son being against me, but my childhood toys, too?" Why do you think Anakin never mentioned anything about the droids?
Vader smoked a lot of medicinal pot to alleviate the pain of losing 3 limbs. Bad memory and lots of munchies. Did you notice how much fatter he got?
It was all part of the master plan set into motion all those years ago that Luke get the helpful droids, that aid him in destroying the Death Star. Anakin implemented these events on purpose back when he was good, foreseeing his downfall
George Lucas is a friggin' idiot. That's why
Anakin was a keen tinkerer, but seriously, what makes you think he was smart? Betraying all the jedis because he had a scary dream. WTF?
All the emo "why don't my droids love me anymore?" scenes were edited out
Anakin, before he went down the path of the sith, was a whiny, impulsive, impatient, punkass, pouty bitch. Darth Vader, on the other hand, is a calculating, patient, precise, stoic, emotionless villain. What happened to change him so much?
Losing the love of your life cuts out your heart, so he no longer felt anything. As for the impulsive, impatient, whiny thing...losing a bunch of limbs seriously cuts down on your brashness
Anakin was an impulsive, overemotional liability. Lord Sidious just said, fuck it, one day and fed him to starving Ewoks and hired an older, more competent replacement who also has a thing for black
Scientology. Dianetics definitely helped expose those deficient traits, and he went in for an auditing
Vader smoked a lot of medicinal pot. Really took the edge off and mellowed him out
Lucas doesn't know shit for character continuity
Chewbacca was like the #2 VIP on his wookie home planet. He was of counsel to Yoda. That's how notable and esteemed a diplomatic hairball he was. Then, in Episode 4, he's second banana to a lowly smuggler, tooling around in a beater POS spaceship, in debt to local crime bosses. That's the equivalent to once being a vice president in Peru and then, 20 years later, driving illegal aliens across the border into America. What happened that made Chewbacca fall from grace?
Drugs. Only serious drug addiction can ruin a man (or a monkey man) like so
Alcoholism. Booze has fucked up many a life
Blackmail. Scandalous pictures of him and the intern threesome blackballed him from politics
Chewbacca wasn't just Han Solo's partner. He was his 'partner'. Love makes many people take big risks and undergo major life changes.
Lucas is an idiot and forgot to address that point
Yoda was the jedi master. Every wrinkle and twist of the force, he was aware of. He must have known about the Emperor's sithlike powers, since, well, it's the dark side of the fucking force and Yoda can always tell when "the force is strong with this one". He must have foreseen the Emperor's rise to total evil. Why didn't Yoda ever do anything about it?
Yoda served the force. He did whatever was destined, whatever was dictated by the force. If Sidious was meant to rise, he was meant to rise. Yoda won't fight destiny
Secret fondness for Anakin. He knew he was going to be great, despite his anger. Yoda didn't want to tamper with a perfect individual
Because he's a muppet. Having a hand up your ass seriously limits your ability to save the universe
He's an old man. He's earned his place as counsel elder. Let the younger whippersnappers do all the watching and doing
Yoda wasn't really all powerful. He was a character of much deceit. He walked with a cane, even though he fought like a tree frog on crack. Nothing about him can be trusted now.
"Oh noez! In my dream, my true love is ded! So sad!", says Anakin. "What, the only way to ensure that my bad dream doesn't come true is to betray everybody I know and kill the innocent? Well, I guess that makes sense. Bad dreams are pretty upsetting" . Q: Why do you think Anakin really turned evil?
For love. He did it all for love. Darth Vader was a big emo softie, ya know
He was an asshole. Yoda & co. didn't grant him the title 'master' so he went out and got a job working for their enemies
Anakin refused to work for Frank Oz's puppetry and that guy from Pulp Fiction any longer
Siths get full health insurance, Including dental
Obi Wan was always making crude sexual remarks towards him. Yoda refused to do anything about the sexual harassment, and Anakin finally went postal against the whole order
