...? Where was that confirmed? I thought that was one of those Han-shot-first moments...

It wasn't done too badly, all things considered, but otherwise I agree that it is overdone.

See above. But, we all knew the 'cloned-villain-returning' was coming...

Exactly my thoughts.

Just what the hell was he thinking?
See above.

Yeah... was wondering about that and if it is actually lightning or that's just a gaming visual effect like the sparkles during battle meditation. I'm pretty sure though, that Stun/Destroy Droid, etc. only short-circits the droid, which may not nessisarily cause pain like torture where they remain 'concious'.

I seem to be a minority on these boards, since I see nothing wrong with attaching the real-world confusing identities of light and dark to Star Wars, as long as the light and dark exist. But most of the power's alignments seem determined by the user's intent and their use, while others are clearly light or dark (Force Healing and Force Lightning respectively)...yeah, I have nothing else to say now.
