Yoda and Palpatine NEVER should have been given lightsabers. — Page 3

Author

I think Palpatine considers the lightsaber an inferior weapon. But it is also a good weapon to defend against other light sabers and to keep the extent of your powers hidden. Palpatine gets Anakin to act and then he has no need to hide because Anakin is his servant from that point on.

There is less an excuse for Yoda. Other than him being a teacher and former active Jedi. He probably used to use one on a regular basis. It made sense in ATOC, but his tactics, while cool to see from an action point of view, don’t exactly match his personality. I think they did that because he is supposed to be the best with a lightsaber and the character was CG. I think they could have done something that looked more effortless. The way they have Darth Vader fight in Rebels is more what I think they should have done. But, on the other hand, I can see where that tactic would have been appropriate when he was a young Jedi. We have seen that a Jedi’s tactics can change over time.

If they hadn’t of had Palpy using a lightsaber I would have just assumed he let Maul use a Sith holocron for his lightsaber training. I don’t know what I would make of Yoda since like Frank said he (nor Obi-Wan) did not teach Luke anything about lightsaber forms outside of blast deflection.

Just a minor nitpick: you should have written “hadn’t have had”.

That way you also get cool alliteration.

He still shouldn’t carry one of his own design.

To carry on with the sacrilege theme he could hold it by the blade and hit people with the metal handle 😃

Rebels made it so that the reasoning behind Yoda having a lightsaber is because he and ALL JEDI WHO FOUGHT IN THE CLONE WARS FELL TO THE DARK SIDE. Palpatine has a lightsaber because… I guess he’s just a dick from the dark side.

Now that I think about it, that was an insane retcon that could not be better. If only… a PT reboot. sigh

Then how does that explain Yoda having a lightsaber before the Clone Wars even begin?

Who cares that there hasn’t been a high quality official release of the unaltered versions of the Star Wars movies.

I don’t know who you are or where you came from, so you’re probably better off going back to where you came from.

I feel a majority of this would have been solved if Sidious had a Sith Sword.

A lightsaber is the sword of the Star Wars universe. So, a Sith Sword is basically just a Sith lightsaber.

Ah. That’s all EU stuff. I don’t think I’ve ever read an EU novel, so that explains my answer.

The way I see it, everything that’s in the Expanded Universe and happens before the prequels is true until proven untrue, since I doubt they’re ever going to explore that time period again in the new canon.

The way I see it, the EU doesn’t matter to me, therefore it doesn’t matter.
