Lightbulb Let's talk about 2 and 3...

So, here's some of my theories about Episodes II and III. I wanna share because quite frankly, only you folks would appreciate some of this stuff.

OK. We all know Chancellor Palpatine crowns himself Emperor. We also know that Anakin goes south, and also has a fling with Amidala. But those are just very rough outlines. Some quotes for you to ponder:

"Who else has been Nominated?"
"Bail (Bale?) Antilles of Alderaan, and Aliie Teem of Malastare."

...An Antilles from Alderaan huh? Perhaps he becomes one of the new Emperor's most vocal enemies. Hence, Amidala seeks him out with her Daughter (Leia, soon to be Princess Leia from Alderaan) in tow...

"He feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damn-fool idealistic crusade like your father did..."
"I will come back and free you. I promise."

... Perhaps the "Damn fool idealistic crusade" is young Anakin and his Master coming back to free the slaves as the boy promised. Only something horribly awry takes place and Anakin's mother is killed. Causing Anakin to perhaps blame the Jedi for it? That would make him ripe for the journey to the Dark Side...

"Our last master was Captain Antilles..."

...The driods obviously accompany Amidala on her trip to Alderaan, where they are kept in the employ of Bale's son... Wedge's father perhaps? Or is Wedge a captain? I can't remember that...

"She was very beautiful... but... sad."
"She died when I was very young."
"I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her."

... Luke's brought to Tatooine (perhaps by Obi-Wan?) as a newborn. Maybe shortly before or after he and Anakin try to free Anakin's mom? Leia travels with her mom (see top) and Amidala is obviously going to be a bit sad about the fact that her beau is now under the control of the Emperor. Perhaps she is sad enough to attempt to go after him and gets killed in the process?

Anyway, just some of my thoughts. I wanted to get them down someplace so I could come back in a few years and say "SEE! I *told* you so..."
