What did you do when Jango died?

I booed. i almost cried too.



Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

I was like

I thought that he was at least going to tell Jango what to do or what he had to do.

Now the kid had no Guidance and doesen't know what to do.

Jango was also cool to and he had to go out like that. I was thinking that his death could of been a bit more dramatic.

I was shocked at first, thinking that Jango Fett would be a valuable ally of Count Dooku's well into the Clone Wars, and then I thought "What a crap death!"

Mace Windu simply walked towards him (slowly at that), Jango made no effort to back away, Mace lifted his lightsaber upwards (again, slowly) and Jango's helmet fell to the dusty floor. There have been better deaths!

Maybe I am remembering it wrong... well, next Monday will sort that! AOTC DVD!!!

Well you saw Mace coming towards him with that look on his face so you knew exactly what was going to happen! I wasn't shocked at all.

I bet Boba gets orders from Anakin to kill but not disentigrate Mace Windu. he did say in an interview that he was going out in a blaze of glory.

Eh...unaffected. It was hardly, as has been stated, a dramatic death, signifigant, but not dramatic.

Mace was sprinting towards him, delfecting blaster shots on the way, then he swung up and sliced Jango's gun and spun in a circle, the follow through lopped his head off. (can you tell i've seen it a few times?)

I can't wait too. I feel jealous of that guy in the swamp that has already held the DVD in his hand. The one that works at the store and that has already recieved the shipment of DVD's so that they are in stock. I hope you know who I am talking about Leemu Taos.

Well, ET Warrior, I would say that you have seen the film several times. However:

Mace did sprint, but he could have flipped/jumped towards his quarry, spin his lightsaber around in a cyclone effect in front of him, walk towards Jango while the cyclone deflected the laser blasts and wait until the lightsaber chopped the bounty hunter into a million pieces! Now that would have been a much better death!

Mace Windu is nothing more than a regular Jedi who can do what a regular Jedi can do. I know everyone says that he is second only to Yoda, but (in my opinion) he is behind Anakin, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Plo Koon and Adi Gallia, not to mention Yaddle (where did she go?).

I just think (from what I have seen in "Attack of the Clones") that Mace Windu is nothing special, and what he did to Jango Fett could have been pulled off by any Jedi Apprentice/Knight/Master in that arena. The simple fact that he uses a purple lightsaber and has been built up to be a kick-ass Jedi has made everyone suddenly think he is the best. It's my opinion that he is nothing special.

I prefer Obi-Wan Kenobi: he should have re-matched Jango after that dismal defeat on Kamino. It's only because Jango had Boba Fett to warn him of Obi-Wan's approach...

You know, I think that would have been cool to see as well.....I really like the fight on Kamino, it is one of my all time SW favorites. I just don't think that fight sceen would have worked with the story line they had in mind for the movie.....

Fear not Cd2....we will see Obi-wan in some great fight sceens in ep 3! <i hope anyways>

Obi-Wan was a old tired man in EP4, in EP1 he was a padawan, and in EP2, he doesn't manage to kill Jango, and in the end battle, Dooku plays with him.... i sure hope we will see Obi-Wan at his top in EP3, isnt he supposed to be one of the greatest jedi? How else would he survive the jedi purge? With luck? Yeah right...

*All the jedi are gathered in the jedi temple. Suddenly Obi-Wan has to go to the bathroom.
- Ill be right back!
After a minute he returns, and everyone is dead except master Yoda.
- What happened?
- Dead they have become. Your padawan killed them, he did. Flee, we must.
- Sure thing Yoddie, your tha boss!*

How great is that?!?




BTW, when Jango Fett was decapitated in EP2, i cheered. Ive never liked the Fetts much...

Well, Obi-Wan is gonna beat the crap out of Anakin, leaving him mutilated and needing a mobile iron lung to survive... while, from the looks of ANH, remaining unscathed. Should prove Old Ben's mettle.

I was too absorbed in the story to notice.

But it's kind of like when that other bounty hunter guy dies in the original trilogy. I mean, none of these guys last long.

My two favourite scenes from Episode II were the Kamino Battle and Dooku versus Obi-Wan (it was too short, far too short...). I think Episode III will be amazing for some Obi-Wan Kenobi action!

Obi-Wan is one of the greatest Jedi of all time. Why is that being debated? People may be expecting too much from Jedi. They arent gods. They arent invincible. Look at what they go through. No one but a Jedi can survive what they survive. All the proof of the Jedis mettle and Obi-Wans is in the movies. Ultimate badass!

I think that the jedi die too easily. Think of the ones we've seen die. Obi-wan, killed by someone who had previously fallen into lava (ouch), Qui-gon beaten even with his trusty side kick (apparently one of the best jedi ever) yet evil, ugly, stupid, annoying, suicide-inducing, butt-munching, piece of crap Jarjar Binks survives a massive battle against thousands of droids. WHY!

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a great Jedi, and ranks highly along with Yoda and Mace Windu.

But hang on: Obi-Wan must be better than Mace Windu! Which one survives the Clone Wars and the Jedi Purge, and which one dies in the conflict? Need I say more?

The two best Star Wars characters are Count Dooku and Obi-Wan Kenobi (in my opinion), and I would love them to have a longer re-match during the Clone Wars. Let's see some action, George!

Well from what I have heard Mave Windu dies while Yoda Padme and Obi escape. He is the one that buys them time so that they can make it out of there.

Hey Count D 2. Just cuz Mace died and Obi did't doesn't mean Obi is better. I think your being a racist J/K. I think Obi wan just survived because he ran away from Darth Vader and hid. That doesn't make him better now does it?

Jedi dont die easily. Why would anyone come to that conclusion? Blocking hundreds of high velocity blaster shots with odds of about 100 to 1. And you critisize them for loosing once in a while? Id like to see YOU and your friends try to take on ONE Jedi with all the firepower you could carry. Youd lose so bad! Just watch the movies and think about anyone else but a Jedi being in those situations. As I said before noone but a Jedi can survive what they survive.

As far as Jar Jar surviving? He just got damn lucky aka fortunate coincidence. In the history of war Im sure in there have been many goofballs whove survived big battles. Know why. They ran! They got lucky. Im sure there were many cowards who survived Normandy by coincidence. But Jar Jar is no coward. No matter how much you can critisize his quirks hes not a coward. He stuck around in the battle of Naboo. If he was a coward he would have run at the first sight of the droids. But he stayed and gave an effort to fight. Hes not THAT bad. George did SW in his way. If I did SW in my way Id get just as much flak for certain characters I created. And the same goes for everyone here. Were all different in our ways of thinking up stories.
