Order 66 is one of the weakest scenes in an already weak film. The Jedi are way too easily dispatched, and don’t fade when they die. Vader can’t “hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights” if all of them are dispatched this easily.

I mean, they had an explanation for why they don’t fade. Qui-Gon was the first Jedi to learn how to become a ghost, and he passed that information down to Yoda and Obi-Wan.

Agree with almost everything you said. The thing where they don’t fade when they die, though? Doesn’t bother me.

And here’s why.

*dramatic pause*

Jedi fading away when they die is a stupid concept and has been since Day 1.

I gotta agree with that. The idea feels way too cheesy for me, and was clearly just done to make the movies more kid-friendly.
