Seps just cant do anything right...

I was thinking the other day, that the seperatists could have killed off Obi-Wan at the begining of Episode III. If they would have used a regular missle that explodes and shot that at Obi-Wan instead of "Buzz Droids" then they could have got him. But nooo... they wanted to do it the hard way.

Anyone agree? lol

Only you, popcorn, would think of such things.

I guess the Seps are just plain stupid.

Well, the seps are "deliberately" made out of less than first class brains and leaders. Palpy wants a reasonable enemy but not one that can actually be powerful enough to stand on their own over long period of time should they decide to ignore his support.

Even Palpy would think of the "what if Dork-u decides to go rogue on him"

Unfortunately Dooku is a failure who can't think sith enough.

Untrue, read the Republic novels, Dooku is a Sith, by name and by nature.

lol i think he knew about it but dooku had a soft spot for the fact that he thought the republic was corrupted that's what Palpy does exploits his enermys weaknesses. Besides the Ceps where probally told not to kill the jedi because i doubt he wanted to stay locked up ungaurded and alone when he could have just used the force to push a button inseatd of sitting there like an idiot, anyways dooku was in my opinion a jedi who would do anything to acheive his goals not as much of a sith as Maul but still a reckless and bloodthrusty warrior who wanted to be listened to.

Soft spot = Fail.

Sith with a soft spot is a weakness.

Thats why ihe has not broken his chains of the past.
Thats why he is not free.
Thats why he is tricked by Palpy.

In Other Words, there is still a bit of Jedi inside him, even as he denys it.
A pity really, cause he would have made a nice Dark lord if he goes rogue against Palpy for real.

Dooku has to be my favorite Sith Lord, cuz his lightsaber is awesome. I hated his death by Anakin.

He's just got this style about him, He's cool.




The following tale of alien encounter is true and by true, I mean false. Its all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end isn't that the real truth? The answer is no.

and he got pwned by a 20 year old

although, Dooku might have wanted the jedi to be alive so that he could knock them off himself.

So did Darth Vader... (well, technically they were each 22 years old respectively, according to the "official" timeline).

if you mean Vader got pwned by luke, then its believable, because Vader was around 45-50% machine. dooku was 100% flesh

*Gasp* but robots aren't supposed to get pwned! They're supposed to rock all over the place! I know I know he wasn't a robot... he was more of a cyborg (my nerdness is showing) but then shouldn't he at least PARTly rock everywhere?...

That's true, and it DID rock you're right. Vader's cool. I hate Palpatine he's so incredibly annoying! I like the lightning flashes when he dies.

The combination between bots and meatbags are always wonderful.

Think, would you rather face a deathmatch bot, a l33t playa, or a l33t playa with aimbot?

I guess you didn't hear about Dooku's hip surgery? J/k (before some nerd whips out their guidebook to correct me!)


Seriously though I don't think that's a really valid argument, because Grievous was like 90% machine, and he supposedly killed various Jedi Masters in combat and severally wounded others.

Of course in the movie he just gave Obi-Wan a hard time and almost killed him. And he also had no force abilities whatsoever. Plus let's not forget the various Jedi who were killed on Geonosis by battle droids...

@ Kurgan: greivous had four helicopter-wristed arms. Vader had two bulky ones .

one more thing, though. why couldnt anakin or obi wan use the force to knock off those buzz droids? they could have easily force-pushed the little suckers off the ship.

I just thought that he was too busy concentrating on flying.

Well, obi is never a great pilot(relatively), so he have to concentrate on flying.
That, and Ani is sure that he can do that w/o resorting to the force, and he did.
