####! Some people here are sooooo confoundedly wrapped up in nitpicking and obsessed with every little stupid detail in debating what the #### canon is and what they insist is bull####. I will not point fingers and I will not hold any grudges I just want to help these people get out of this senseless rut theyre destroying them selves in. FACT: Canon is what comes from George and Lucasfilm. Ah! Ah! No thats what canon is. No dont debate! Ah what did I say. No stop! Whatever they make and aproove IS canon. FACT: Expanded Universe is not canon. BUT most of it is kickass and doesnt conflict with the movies. I personally like all of EU that does not conflict. Luke changes a few rules and traditions in the Jedi order that I think are cool. (Go Jade!;))
I will not look at this thread again because I dont wish to see any flamers who think they know everything have a field day on this.:burn1: :flamethro :devburn: Ya Im sure theyll twist and fart out some reason to call me a :newbie:. Whatever. :nut: Well most of us know the truth pretty much unless George completely changes something whick he likely wont. So Ill finish with one final shine on to the flamers. JAR JAR BINKS IS COOL AND HES CANON!!!!:D :D :D

By the definition of canon you are correct. Whatever Lucasfilm makes and puts in the films is canon.

Whether EU conflicts with the movies is a moot point. EU should never be compared to the movies. No one is saying EU is bad, but you cannot use EU to make an argument against the films. That is what some people have tried to do, and they have no argument, because the canon films are the legitamite story. :D

ummm.....no one BESIDES Jedi Monk ;) You know, it's personal opinion if you like EU or not, just like it's personal opinion if you like dickens, or other famous authors. (I hate dickens) But i think you should probably calm down there jedi nut, even though you said you won't read this thread again, you should....because we debate canon and non canon because
A. We enjoy debating all things star wars, and
B. it's something that we should know, what is and what is not canon.

So don't got so mad about it, okay?

Clear up a few errors in this thread:

Jango never holds the blaster in his left hand.
Jango's right hand is severed by Mace.
There is no motion to ignite a jet pack.
Mace does not give any look after picking up his saber.
Kit Fisto smiles after force pushing C3P0.

Now for semantics:
In Empire you can slow down the video and see the blaster shot hitting his hand.
Sith Lightning is both energy and force, not a blaster.

Clearly the lesson to be learned here is being a coward is better for your pulse. Jar Jar is still alive and Qui Gon, Maul, Fetts, Vader and the Emperor are all dead.

Fact:
Yoda is fearful of Luke in Empire.
Yoda dies an aging cowardly death in a swamp.
Semantics:
Yoda doesn't finish Vader off himself.
Cowardice keeps Yoda alive.

Not to get off topic but does anyone think Mace would be cooler with the Pulp Fiction look and a gold trim light saber? In Ep.I he could have said "We cannot train the bitch." In Ep. II he could have said "The hell with these krackers, I'm going to show Padme that Darth Maul had the SECOND biggest lightsaber in the galaxy." By Ep.III he and a young Lando could have been cruisin' the galaxy in the Lady Luck."

Just a thought....

PS: I don't mean any of that stuff about Yoda, just some of these threads are nitpicky beyond the scope of the term.

Ah geez kryllith, now you've gone and messed up my perfectly reasonable explanation....:(

As for you mr DocBledsoe. Jango does hold it in his left hand at one point, he holds two blasters, and one of them obviously must be in the left one. And Jango's hand doesn't get severed, i saw the movie 9 times, and after the 5th time i paid extra attention and after his head is gone and his body slumps to the gound you clearly see both of his hands. Mace just cut his gun in half. Mace DOES give Jango a look. He looks down at jango on the ground and ignites his blade and his face just says "Never touch the f****** lightsaber!"
Yoda isn't afraid of Luke in empire...yoda could have eaten luke alive in empire! ;)

I just re-watched that seen and cannot see any such look. Jango does hold a blaster in his left hand in the arena, but it disappears after his rolling escape from the beast.

I cannot argue with the hand severing b/c of the quality of this film. However, I must say it looks as though his hand is severed. Can't wait for the DVD.

9 times? That's a damn shame. I am a fan, you're a lunatic. But I understand, I watched the superbowl upwards of 10 times. Different strokes for different folks.

Watch empire again, if he isn't scared, he is lying.

Covering face: I mean you no harm.

I guess in this world of die hards that is some EU way of conveying complete peace? Blah.

ET Warrior
08-07-2002, 01:39 PM
Your poor quality film must be causing problems, because there IS a look. Mace is lookin down at Jango and his face is just......Bad ass...

Ahhhh, i would never use EU to explain something that happened in the movies unless it was my very last resort. The reason Yoda covers his face is A. Luke has a blaster pointed at Yoda's face, and Yoda wants to show that he's not a threat, and B. Yoda is trying to make luke think he's just a crazy, old, crippled hermit. Yoda also goes through lukes stuff like he's never seen things like a lamp before....which we all know he has. In the end it's all a test for Luke....which he failed miserably.


And yes, i am, in fact, a lunatic.

I am SORRY?
:) Please explain why he fails.

Why do people on this forum hate Luke, you can never say that Like is not as good as any other Jedi.

Do you know WHY?

Easy, you are all Star Wars fans?

YES

Well, George Lucas based Luke somehow in his own fanatasy self image, as he said many times, Luke is George's Hero in SW, NOT Obi Wan, NOT Mace Windu, NOT Yoda, NOT Anyone except of LUKE.

End of Story, so stop putting down Luke, he is supposed to be the best Jedi ever, I don't care if he doesn't have thousands of Jedi saber battles, or take on Vader with a blind fold and with his hands tied behind his back, as DocBledsoe says, all die, Luke does live.

You try to find any Jedi that survives the Empire at their strongest, with hardly any other Jedi help, take on the Death Star twice, get shot so many laser at him from Storm Troopers with no Light Saber some times to aid him, take on bounty hunters and the SW Mafia Jabba The Hutt, and fight Vader and Lord Sidious.

If Yoda is soooo GREAT, where the hell was HE?

In the swamp, sleeping next to frogs and trees lilke a hippy, while Luke does his dirty work, it is true, cowards or people who can't just be bothered always live longer.

I don't want to hear no rubbish that Luke didn't kill Sidious Vader did, and Vader didn't want to kill Luke, I attack one of you with a light saber, I try not to kill you, but I will if you are trying to kick the **** out of me.

Luke is a HERO, NOT SUPERMAN, he can not be expected to be the god of all Jedis, this is Lucas, not a Japonese Dragonball Z story, where the only way to win is to reach a higher and higher power level.

THE TRUTH, LUKE NOT DEAD, ALL POWERFUL JEDI and SITH

DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!

ET Warrior
08-07-2002, 04:09 PM
Luke failed every test that Yoda set up for him. Plain and simple, watch empire again and watch. FIRST, Yoda tests luke's patience, so see if he has the patience to become a jedi. Luke gets mad, throws down his food and says "i dont even know what i'm doing here. I'm WASTING my time." Yoda sighs and starts telling obiwan he cannot train luke. THEN yoda takes luke to the cave. First he tells luke that he won't need his weapons, but luke takes the weapons anyway, and strikes down 'vader' with his anger, thus failing another test. And then luke failed to lift his x-wing out of the swamp. THEN luke left without completing his training to go save his friends...but he didn't do ANYTHING for his friends. All he managed to do was get his hand cut off and he actually caused more problems for Lando leia and chewie because they had to turn around and pick him up. Seeya.

Luke took on the death star once, and without Han Solo, luke would not have destroyed said death star. Lando calrissian and wedge antilles took on the second death star, and neither of them had the force. Also, Luke did survive after getting shot at by those many stormtroopers while not armed with his saber....but Han Solo and Chewbacca ALSO lived, and neither of them have the force. Han solo is the only reason that Luke wasn't shot in the back by Boba Fett.
I CAN say that Luke is not as good as other Jedi. We saw for our own eyes in ESB that Yoda is a LOT more powerful than luke. He lifted lukes X-wing like it was nothing. Luke barely moved it.
I don't want to hear no rubbish that Luke didn't kill Sidious Vader did
That's not rubbish....that's fact.

08-07-2002, 04:21 PM
Atleast you are admitting that Yoda is a liar.

Lies deceipt creating mistrust are his ways now.....hmm maybe it all makes sense, maybe Yoda wants Luke dead b/c he is the Lucas Jedi and not a real Jedi. <sarcastic>

Yoda was a liar. Test or no test he lied.

So what's wrong with Anakin getting a little? Nothing. But wait, they both die....

They all die anyway...

None of them are real. I feel like Holden McNeil, ET is Jay, mez is Silent Bob and we're in that f***ed up movie....

ET Warrior, does Luke not learn from his mistakes in ROTJ, and becomes a real Jedi with anger control etc.

The tests of Yoda did not test his capabilities as a Jedi only, they tested if he was to become a SITH just like daddy, and all signs of anger and frustration, the same properties of Anakin, but Luke stayed good, not bad, so he did pass in some way, even though the signs were bad at the beginining, this is called good story telling, keeping the audience's thought of what might happen unbalanced you could say, that anything may be possible during the story.

Still, none of what you said was anything new, and it still doesn't show that Obi Wan, Mace Windu orYoda are better.

If Yoda is soooo good (repeated before), why did he die in the swamp like a wussy, Jedi die with honour.

Princess Leia HAS got the Jedi powers, and Han Solo and Chewy are the co-chaacters who seem to live through things that others don't

Look at R2D2, they lived (if robots live) or survived all the SW sagas, but they are only comic relief, even though lots of Jedi died within the Arena scene, these two robots and Padme survived, hmmmmm who would win a Jedi or Padme, it's like saying Jango should have killed several Jedi and at least scratched Mace Windu, Not going to happen, but I think in SW if GL wants, Padme could kill a Jedi with a laser gun.

ALL Jedi DEAD, LUKE Alive.

Yoda was not a lyer. He was mearly testing Luke. He was probably testing how Luke reacted to certain situations.

DocBledsoe
08-07-2002, 05:54 PM
And how does he test Luke?

SAY IT SAY IT!!!

Yoda was LYING to test Luke. LYING. He lied about being afraid and he lied about the way he looked at things (according to you).

This is black or white, there is no gray area. He is either afraid, or he is lying.

I'm waiting for someone to say he was cloned and the Yoda that fought Dooku was the Sith Yoda. But I don't care to heat why this is outrageous, b/c that is silly. Explaining what could be and what couldnt be within the realm of fiction is about as outrageous as it can get.

ROTJ should have had this exchange in it:

Luke: "Master Yoda why did you cower from me when I first arrived? Were you scared or deceiving me?"
Yoda: "Little green hypocrite am I. MMMMMM. Make something of it you want to? Stomp your stupid ass I will. Yours is not to question."
Luke" "I'm sorry master-
Yoda: "Apologize not!
Luke: "I'm sorry you turned to the dark side- <light saber ignites> Yoda's head and sliced cane hit the floor>
Luke: "My ass you can kiss. Green piece of Sh!t you are."

MotionMan
08-07-2002, 06:05 PM
Why would Yoda be afraid of Luke? He was obviously acting the part. Yoda could have eaisily thrown luke across the lake with the force. Luke had minimal training as a jedi. And with "minimal" im giving him too much credit.

ET Warrior

If Yoda is soooo good (repeated before), why did he die in the swamp like a wussy, Jedi die with honour.
Yeah, i guess i forgot about the part in episode 2 where we see the plaque hanging on the wall in the jedi council room that says Jedi Must Die with Honor. :roleyess: And where exactly is the dishonor in dying of old age? Lets recap, Yoda has trained Jedi for 800 years. He was the most powerful jedi in existance. he is also the only reason that luke knows how to do more than force pull his lightsaber to himself after 2 minutes of trying..he saved both obi-wan and anakins life in ep 2......will probably save OTHER people/jedi in episode 3.....yeah....what a wussy. :roleyess:
Princess Leia HAS got the Jedi powers
Princess Leia has a high midichlorian count. She has no idea what or how she should use them. she has the same 'powers' that anakin had in ep 1. Basically she has good reflexes and is luckier than most people. And Han and Chewie still survived, no matter what you say, meaning they are apparently just as talented as Luke skywalker, and han solo has saved lukes life more times than luke has saved han's.

And DocBledsoe...i'm not sure..but are you saying that because Yoda lied to Luke he had to have turned to the dark side? Because if you are that means obiwan was a dark jedi too, because he told luke that vader murdered his father....and he lied to the kaminoans when he was on Kamino...

INT EMPEROR'S TOWER - THRONE ROOM

Vader stalks the low-ceilinged area on the level below the
throne, searching for Luke in the semi-darkness, his lightsaber
held ready.

VADER
You cannot hide forever, Luke.

LUKE
I will not fight you.

VADER
Give yourself to the dark side. It is the
only way you can save your friends. Yes, your
thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them
are strong. Especially for...

Vader stops and senses something. Luke shuts his eyes tightly, in
anguish.

VADER
Sister! So...you have a twin sister. Your
feelings have now betrayed her, too. Obi-Wan
was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure
is complete. If you will not turn to the dark
side, then perhaps she will.

LUKE
NOOOOOOOOooooooooo!!!.....

Luke ignites his lightsaber and screams in anger, rushing at his
father with a frenzy we have not seen before. Sparks fly as Luke
and Vader fight in the cramped area. Luke's hatred forces Vader
to retreat out of the low area and across a bridge overlooking a
vast elevator shaft. Each stroke of Luke's sword drives his
father further toward defeat.

The Dark Lord is knocked to his knees, and as he raises his sword
to block another onslaught, Luke slashes Vader's right hand off
at the wrist, causing metal and electronic parts to fly from the
mechanical stump. Vader's sword clatters uselessly away, over the
edge of the platform and into the bottomless shaft below. Luke
moves over Vader and holds the blade of his sword to the Dark
Lord's throat. The Emperor watches with uncontrollable, pleased
agitation.


You call that anger management?

yeah...like i said. ObiWan has obviously joined the darkside.
On Kamino
Lama Su: "Would you like to inspect them?"
ObiWan: "That's, why i'm here."

An obvious LIE, as obiwan did not know they were even making clones for the republic. And obiwan lied in a new hope, when he said that Vader murdered lukes father. Then he told stormtroopers in mos eisley that r2 and 3po weren't the droids they were looking for. Lies again. Obiwan was apparently nearly as evil as emperor palpatine himself!

Then of course QuiGon tried to mind-trick Watto, and convince him that Republic credits would work fine....when they wouldn't, This of course also makes QuiGon evil.....then Yoda, the greatest of all Jedi masters didn't really lie, so much as he acted more foolish than he really was... so he's evil...

Yoda was not saying at the end that telling lies makes you evil. He was saying that Dooku had joined the darkside, and so what he says is meant to create distrust. You say i saw it 9 times in episode 2....you showed one, not very good example. show me 8 others.

mez1109
08-08-2002, 11:22 AM
I don't understand why you are contradicting yourselves.

Jedi are like monks, they have a code of rules, and like Vulcans (sorry to those that hate Star Trek), they try to have perfect inner piece, and not lie or do anything evil based.

ALL Jedi have a 100% personnality, either they are 100% Evil or 100% Good, but Luke is an exception, he is 50/50.

For example Luke gets angry to protect his sister from Vader, but he does NOT join the Dark Side, so there is not much of an argument that Luke is Evil, not even Sidious understands this, as any Jedi that does what Luke did, goes normally to the dark side, just look at what happened to Anakin revenging his mother.

The point is, that Luke is probably the perfect version of a Jedi, as he is NOT always lawful, but also disproves Yoda's theory of total goodness, with that anger and fear being the signs of the dark side.

This also give Yoda the excuse to LIE, but Yoda is NOT Luke, and he always mentions the bad properties of a Sith.

Still lieing Yoda is not Evil, if you agree with that, angry Luke is neither Evil and in perfect control of himself.

After ALL this, Luke WON, and he didn't join the dark side.

Please stick to your point, either being a bit Evil is alright or NOT, but you can never put Luke in this equation, as he has this unique Human property of expressing anger, but controlling it when needed.

Hell even Yoda looked pissed and made what sounded like a growling noise right before he fought Dooku. Obviously he composes himself but Yoda got just a little ticked at the slaughter of countless Jedi and then the attempted murder of one of his students.

ET Warrior
08-08-2002, 02:25 PM
And then Obiwan looked awfully mad at the Acklay when he finally killed it....but he still didn't go over to the darkside. So basically, Jedi are not trying to be perfect. They still have emotions. What makes them Jedi is the fact that they don't let their emotions rule their actions.
And where exactly are you coming up with Yoda's theory of perfection? I have yet to hear Yoda ever mention that Jedi must be perfect.....
Luke was not in perfect control of himself. He Lost complete control of himself when he was attacking vader....he lost it so much after he had Vader on the ground and beaten he still kept chopping away at him with all his fury. The only thing that calmed him was when he saw that vader's hand was mechanical, just like his, and something about that reminded him that Vader was his father...and he did not want to strike down his father.

Jedi do not have to be perfect, but they DO have to avoid using the force for selfish means, or for no reason atall. Like when Anakin used the force to steal padme's fruit and cut it for her. He said that if master obiwan saw him doing that he'd be very grumpy. Because that is an unnesesary(sp) use of his powers.

And again i will say that Yoda was not lying when he first met luke on Degobah. this is what happened
Luke: "Steal there's something familiar about this place.....i dont know, i feel like.."
Yoda: "Feel like what?"
*Luke spins and points his blaster at yoda's face*
Luke: "Like we're being watched"
*Yoda covers his face with his arms, a gesture of harmlessness*
Yoda: "Away put your weapon, i mean you no harm"

Yoda was not scared of luke, and he probably didn't figure that luke would shoot him. But the best way to get luke to lower his weapon would be to show him that he was just a harmless old creature.
This debate is stupid however, because I guarantee you that George Lucas himself would never say that Yoda joined the darkside....and i have proof from the movies themselves.

LOL this dicusion is ridiculously simple to understnd.
The problem is that some people have their "own" theories as to how jedis behave or sith's behave or whatever and even though the facts are put in front of them they still stick to their beleifs.
Like the 100% Jedi Saints or the 100% Demon Siths...*sigh*

*And please Mez dont compare the Jedi to Spock(Vulcans) from star trek. Jedi are far from being like the vulcans.

I assure you I am new to these forums. And my tolerance for Star Wars lunatics is damn near gone. I'm clearly out of my element and truly am somewhere between you nuts and the casual fan.

That's exactly what Holo-sid would've said. You two should meet, i'm sure you'd both get along fantastically.


It seems odd that you are getting all upset that we're arguing with you. First of all, you come into a star wars forum saying that the greatest jedi master ever joined the dark-side.....of course we'll argue that point. Then you start getting all hostile and rude about it.....so sorry when we prove that our star wars knowledge is greater than yours and we know what we're talkin aboot. :roleyess:

Hehehehehehe, i just found a quote from Mez in an old thread that makes me laugh.....
YOU are SOOOOOO WRONG.
Darth Vader would have opened a WHOLE TANKER of woop ass on Luke, stupid mechanical limbs, not fast enough.
The fools can clone people, but not extra organs an body pieces.

Back then he says that vader would have destroyed luke....but here he says luke was way more powerful than vader....and you accuse me of contradicting myself......:roleyess:

Someone above said that Yoda, Ben, and Obi lied. If you think about it Yoda wasn't lying at all. He was going along with it, he never gave Luke his identity so in a sense he wasn't lying. Yoda also says "War not make one great". If you think about it Sidiouse is a coward as well. He has others do his work. And if anybody says that he's killed Jedi he hasen't yet so it's not cannon. Then on Kamino he doesn't lie when he arrives. He didn't tell them who or why he was there he just agreed with them so that is not lying. Then in Rotj when he is talking with Ben after Yoda's passing Ben tells him that he was telling the truth from a certain point of view. And that most of the truth's that we look at depend at the person's view. So you may think that they were lying by youre point of view. Also Yoda was strong with the Force but not strong enough. In ESB you hear Vader and the Emperor talking and the Emperor says " he could destroy us". Palpatine is scared of Luke and so is Vader. They just don't show cause that is bad to let you're enemy know you're afraid. Thats why the Emperor's plan is to turn Luke to the Dark side of the Force. He fails of course and is destroyed. If you think about it Anakin really isn't the Chosen one. Luke in reality is because he Destroyed the Dark side. And he is brining back what was once lost. If you think about it no matter what there is always going to be Sith and Jedi. Like at first there was Sidiouse and Maul. Then in the OT there is Ben and Yoda. There has to be one for the other to exist. That is the true balance to the Force.

Thank you I missed that line(the ,"from a certain point of view" line).


oh and Vader is the chosen one not luke.


There is lots more to discuss about your post. I dont have the time right now to respond fully:)

ObiWan was lying on Kamino, even if he was just going along with Lama Su.

Lama Su: "i'm sure you're eager to inspect them"
ObiWan: "That's, why i'm here."

He is lying, but it's not EVIL.

I still like the line you said-"Obviously Obi-wan is as evil as Darth Sidious". Refering to Obi-Wans lying:p

Not to knock your argument or anything, but could you please be a bit more careful with your use of pronouns? If nothing else, at least use a proper noun when you're changing the subject of a sentence. In the above you have it expressed as though Sidious went along with the Kaminoans (when you mean Obiwan) and talked to Ben after Yoda's death (when you mean Luke)...

I know what you mean but when I went up to edit, it would delete what was in front of it and I edited it twice before I noticed my foul up. By the time I noticed I was tired and didn't want to re type the whole thing. Sorry :(

No problems. :D I was able to follow it, just took me a second, and I'm pretty sure others were able to follow it to. I just didn't want people flaming you saying something like "Sidious never talked to Obiwan after Yoda's death!!! Learn what the #$$*&#$ you're talking about!!!" Or something to that extent. ;)
