But still, I think people that are vehemently against Emperor clones maybe misunderstand that this fictional universe includes both Cloning and Dark Magic.  You can argue with the execution, but it seems odd to argue that it should be impossible in the universe.


I myself don't mind bringing the Emperor back through cloning. Fact is I think Veitch did a great job with Palpatine's characterization; he really built upon the Palpatine from ROTJ.

Dark Empire fails for me, though, in it's depiction of Luke's fall to the dark side. Veitch tells us that Luke went through Palpatine's dark side tomes and experimented with dark powers, but he never shows us this happening; it's just glossed over. And I never really got the feeling that Luke even fell to the dark side in the story. It's more like Luke because a sissy and went along with Palpatine out of sheer cowardice.

General Star Wars <strong>Random Thoughts</strong> Thread
Time

Without Ford’s iconic performance as Han Solo, Star Wars is just the hokey story of a whining farm boy who catches the eye of a weird old wizard and then flies around space accompanied by a pair of gay robots and an overgrown dog man.


I hate it when people say this, utterly hate this! Why do people keep reusing this canard - why?! It's positively untrue! It's pure libel!

Only Threepio is gay.

The novel had a feeling of everything must be viewed from a Prequel point of view.


This pretty much sums up the current state of the EU.

And the capital crime is the perpetual resurrection of the Emperor! Whose clever idea was it to actually have him come back again and again and again?


It was Lucas, believe it or not. Veitch originally planned to bring Vader back in the form of an imposter for Dark Empire, but Lucas thought that Vader as the antagonist had already been throughly explored and that it would be better to bring Palpatine back instead.

Space Boobs!!

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say the "space boobs" he's talking about refer to that image of the TIE fighter in the bottom right corner.

Is it wrong that Laserdisc has become my favorite home video format?
Time

Having never even seen a laserdisc or laserdisc player outside of a faded old copy of Rolling Stone magazine, all I can say is you're not crazy, not at all. I for one love books printed on paper - Ebooks may be more compact and versatile, but I love the feeling of flipping through physical pages and admiring the smells of the actual book.

Of course, I am something of a modern day Luddite, so ...
