Yoda and Palpatine NEVER should have been given lightsabers. — Page 4

Palps should have just lightninged. He doesn’t need any weapons apart from the Force.

Also, apparently “lightninged” is a word according to Firefox spellcheck.

Isn’t the only reason people didn’t want a lightsaber was because he called it a Jedi weapon in Rotj. Sith Sword would have taken care of that.

I think other than Maul, Dooku and Vader the sith should have just used swords after Bane came to power.

Nope.

Another reason we don’t like Palpatine with a lightsaber is because he should be beyond the need for a melee weapon.

No, because everyone is fine with Vader having one. As everyone said a lightsaber should be seen as a child’s weapon for the Dark Side of The Force would be a far more potent weapon to a Force Sensitive of his caliber.

Exactly. The only reason Vader even has a lightsaber is because he once was a Jedi. Not true with Palpatine.

Yes, Vader was a Jedi, so his having a lightsaber makes sense. Palpatine practically spits out the word when taunting Luke, so it makes it clear to me that he has disdain for the weapon.

Yeah, if he could shoot lightning from his fingers, I can’t see why he’d even bother with a lightsaber.

If I had to guess, I’d say the original intent was for the Emperor to be beyond the need for any such weapon, but along the way Lucas decided it would be cooler if every force user was a gymnast and had something colorful to twirl around.

I wonder what Bingo would have to say about this.

It’s weird that you think that just because we took your reference in different directions.

This is one of the things that trouble me most in prequels. Are there any edits that remove lightsabers from Yoda and Palpatine or cuts those parts?

Assimilate THIS!

I don’t know of any, but it should be possible. There are no essential plot points that happen during their lightsaber scenes. Yoda’s scene in AOTC could be cut so that Dooku and Yoda only use other powers, and Windu arresting Palpatine could cut after ‘it’s treason then’. Cut to Anakin’s arrival at the office, and he enters to find Palpatine already at Windu’s mercy. The final Yoda vs Palpatine fight could be cut entirely.

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

@NeverarGreat My thoughts exactly! I`m sure someone will eventually do that edit(something beyond my skill and time).
