Is there anyone who thinks some of the battles are wrong
 
I was just wondering that there was anyone who thought that there was a battle that wasn't right.An eg.darthmaul should of killed obi wan (l think this one is wrong it should just keep it but it is olny an example). :lazerhead

MachineCult 03-22-2006 08:59 AM

lol, no.

†Saint_Killa† 03-22-2006 09:58 AM

No. It wouldn't make any sense if Obi Wan was killed rather than Qui Gon. Ben Kenobi was alive in the OT which was first made before PT.

Redtech 03-24-2006 02:47 PM

I think that Mace Window cried like a biaaaaaaaayaaatccccchhhhhhhh! After getting owned by Annakin, it just made me embarrased to watch that. I don't end up hating Annakin, I end up wondering what drugs Samuel L was on for taking part.

Darth Andrew 03-24-2006 09:29 PM

Well, if this thread includes ALL battles, then I think a few went wrong, namely the droids vs. the Gungans and the Empire vs.the man-eating fluffy teddy bears. :rolleyes:

Commander Obi-Wan 03-24-2006 09:53 PM

They were decent. Though, they could've been better.

rccar328 03-25-2006 03:12 AM

I didn't see any problems with any of the battles...the Maul/Obi Wan battle in particular, for reasons already stated.

TSR 03-25-2006 06:07 AM

i was a bit confuffled by the gungan/droid battle. what a balls up. the gungans should have been massacred in minutes, what with their emp grenades and all. still,my favourite was when dooku got pwned.

That part is also wrong. How come anakin pawned dooku easily while yoda didn't.

'Cause Anakin was becoming stronger, and Dooku was too cocky. Plus Sidious gained so much power when almost all the Jedi were eliminated.

The Source 03-25-2006 06:24 PM

Hehehe... I think that if Obi-Wan was killed by Maul there would be questions.

*** Interveiwing George After EPI ***

Interveiwer: Mr. Lucas many of the Star Wars fans are curious about Obi-Wan's death. Did you find it hard to bring Obi-Wan back to life twenty years ago? What type of obsticles did you have to overcome to bring him back to life? Do you believe that a Jedi can become so powerful in the force that they can will themselves backwards in time, and come back to life in a movie made twenty years ago?

George: (While Smoking Some Strange Substance.) Originally, Obi-Wan was supossed to be Jarjar Binks. You see Jarjar was a great and powerful Jedi who killed off Exar Kun, and went into a time machine...

Interviewer: (Cutting off George.) Man. That must be some harsh stuff your smoking. I think the fans would apprechiate an answer.

George: (Takes Another Puff.) Yeah. Well, I decided to rename the Episodes, and create another triology that will explain this in depth. Episode IV will be the Phantom Menace, and Episode IX will the Return of the Jedi. (Takes Another Puff.) The new prequal triology will be based upon Jarjar, and why he hides in the shadows of a primitive peoiple under the sea. It will be based upon his exile from the Jedi Council. I will call the first one Episode I: The Big Mistake.

Redtech 03-26-2006 09:24 AM

Well, I often think that Lucas is surely on something. While his creativity is really high (or to be exact, his art team and special effects workers), I do wonder...

WTF with the SBD voices!

I wonder if drugs are the answer to all problems.

TSR 03-29-2006 08:20 AM

:guiness:

they are. :)

jomaster 03-29-2006 06:09 PM

hey if it wasn't for lucas (and perhaps drugs too) there would be no movies no books and most importantly no forums on here so lay off the GL hatin lol :D

Daniel333 03-30-2006 04:39 PM

l don't think there hating GL is just there probly saying that he stop taking drugs but sure that what he was smoking on wasn't sigerates becuase if they were they effect well if he still does smoke l want him to stop because l don't want george lucas dying becuase he said he just might make episode seven well its like he already has because of ST:jedi acdemy anyway lets jump back to the subject about the battles.

Yeah. If he is smoking something, I think its a little too late. JarJar Bink was way out there... I mean you have to be seeing purple elephants to create that character.

How about the time he was going to include Insinc into Episode II. Hehehe... A mess of Star Wars fans wrote to him, and threatened not to see the movie.

I smell a 'New Kids on The Block Reunion' in the next version of The Return of the Jedi...

Hehehe...

I am not making fun of George... I like the George. Without George, I would have nothing to look forward to. :( There wouldn't be 'Spaceballs'. :)

TSR 03-31-2006 07:53 AM

LOL. spaceballs rules. almost. Yeh, GL rules. worrying how 1 man's imagination can result in stuff like this though...

McCusto 03-31-2006 08:46 AM

Grievous vs. Obi-Wan.

In the books we were led to think that Grievous was this monster war machine. The most feared general by jedi! Then Obi-Wan comes to Utapau, gets in a duel, and cuts off 2 of his hands, like they were nothing! Then the worst part is he died by a blaster. I mean, come on! A blaster? Laaaaaaaaaaaaame!

TSR 03-31-2006 08:51 AM

the film came out first, did it not? and, grievious had no idea about the pistol thing PLUS its was a kind of do-or-die situation for obi-wan back there.

champ1on 03-31-2006 10:59 AM

I still don't understand how Sidious managed to cut down 3 Jedi Masters within 5-6 seconds with such ease.

Incredibly powerful DARK LORD OF THE SITH.

theres your answer.

TSR 03-31-2006 12:23 PM

that would be a minimalistic answer, but nonetheless, its actually why. cos he was so g*d d*mn powerful. not quite the honourable end i was hoping for for kit fisto, but, he was going to die. and saesee tiin sux0r. i think thats that new fangled word for "sucks"

I always thought about that. I mean 4 jedi masters face one sith and 3 of them die in less than 5 seconds. Thats a deul i would have changed.

jomaster 03-31-2006 02:45 PM

yeah me too i mean one of those jedi is master kit fisto and in the cestus deception he is nigh on untouchable by anyone but within the first 10 seconds of the duel with sidious he gets cut down by a lame strike that a clumsy gungan with a hydro-spanner could have blocked lol

Obi-Wan vs. the Droid Army
 
I had a hard time with Obi-Wan jumping into the middle of hundreds of droids. Jedi or not, you can't block 500 blasters firing at you at once.

Ever heard of the Force?

Even with the force you'd never be able to block so much fire power if that was the case then a hell of alot more jedi wouldve survived the battle in the geonosis arena

jomaster 04-01-2006 06:44 AM

true true,
although this wasn't really a battle i thought it should be mensioned:
the death of Boba Fett i mean in the prequel trilogy we see Jango as this feared and respected bounty hunter that survives endless battles (apart from geonosis of course) and it takes an extremely powerful jedi to kill him. Then we get to ROTJ and,if my memory serves me correctly han solo turns round with a weequay staff and somehow ingnites Boba's jetpack flying him into the sail barge and then down into the sarlacc pit it just seemed to me like a kinda lame way to go for a second generation legendry bounty hunter who is known all over the galaxy

Redtech 04-01-2006 08:30 AM

Well, it is made up as Lucas goes along. Anyway, he isn't some Godlike being who I feel obliged to give "oral services" to. I look at the art and creativity of the people that worked for him, and I see some really exciting and brilliant ideas, even the ones that never made it onto screen.

As for these forums, http://www.lfnetwork.com/about.php pretty much disclaims "the ol' mighty" from getting involved.

I may be mistaken beacause i haven't seen the movie in such a while but Obi-wan never fought all those droids. They surronded him but grevious tod them not to fire and Kenobi was his kill. After the grevious/obi-wan chase kenobi killed grevious without heavy fire from those droids. (again i haven't seen the movie in such a long time so if i am wrong have pity on me :rolleyes: )

jomaster 04-01-2006 06:26 PM

nope you're definatly right but i don't know if jimbo meant that particular situation sorry i'm wrong

Yes, true. Though, my comment was sorta ment to be sarcastic.

Also, Grievous refrained the droids from firing at Obi b/c he wanted to kill him himself.

Those were Clones. Not Droids.

TSR 04-03-2006 06:05 AM

i guess he wasnt exactly fully focused. you know, with the whole betrayal bit. the "5-minutes-ago-they-were-on-my-side" sort of situatuon.

RaV™ 04-09-2006 01:59 AM

I found Aayla Secura being PWNZED yes PWNZED the ultimate of all OWNED, by her Clones. I guess the Felucia winged creatures were too much for her to notice she had Clones aiming guns at her.

Redtech 04-09-2006 09:28 AM

No, it was the fact we were all staring at her "chest potatos" and didn't realise they were aiming at her either. :)

TSR 04-10-2006 11:50 AM

and, even though twi-leks are different, even they don't have eyes in the back of their heads. :)

RaV™ 04-10-2006 10:09 PM

Neither does Yoda, but look what he did to Commander Gree!
