I said twice or so. Five is closer to 9 than 4, 3, 2, etc. If you round up... yeah, you get the picture.

Padme was only 14? She didn't look 14... but yes, you are right, she is 14. But regardless, I don't think boys at age 9 start taking an interest in girls...

We still think they have cooties.

LOL Well said.

Padme had a knack for TRYING to look like a Geisha.

She fell short, sadly.

You always find a way to ruin a conversation don't you,

"child pr0no" was never a topic here.

Well I think we should go back to the real topic.

Well, starwars is written in a format not unlike ancient mythology. And coincidence is the key ingredient of a myth.

Drama, Karma, Fate.

To get this working you NEED those coincidence in the main story line.

As for the rest of the stuff? well, cameo are just cameo, which is always good w/o ruining the story. As for the rest, I do think some of them are done "for the fans" as some crowd-pleasing act (think "this party is over").

Now, RL coincidence do happen in many history changing events though, such as the Lincon/Kennedy thing, and I don't think Lucas did that. Maybe its just that people would try to dig out coincidence in a big event, such is the focus of a saga?

There is no coincidence, there is only the force... Duh!

The force guided all these characters together so that the Prophecy could come full circle; Luke becomes Jedi, Jedi meets Vader, makes Vader Anakin, Anakin destroys Sith.

I'm not even sure which post to quote to better illustrate my point, but; about how Vader and Palpatine never went to seek out Luke and Leia: Palpatine told Vader at the end of ROTS that he had killed Padme, right? Right.

Padme hadn't yet given birth when she was taken from Mustafar by Obi-Wan (which was before Palpatine arrived). So it's likely the dynamic duo simply didn't expect Padme to be alive to actually give birth; if they would have then surely Palpatine would have gone looking. Vader was quite the good servant, but a new-born Skywalker would no doubt hold much greater promise.

So, the children were free to grow up; hiding in the shadow cast by one of Palpatine's very rare oversights.

There are no coincidences. There is only the force.
