Being unconscious hasn't seemed to interfere with Paris Hilton's or Lindsay Lohan's social lives.

While I still consider the clone Emperor to be part of the saga, I have never really believed that it really was the original or "real" Palpatine any more than the clones Joruus C'baoth and Luuke Skywalker were the originals. I refer to him in my head as "Paalpatine".

Re: Samuel L. Jackson Wants to Return as a One-Handed or Ghost Mace Wi

The only reason the vast majority of Star Wars OT background characters got explained and expanded upon over 30+ years was because people were and are obsessed with Star Wars and wanted more of that space adventure awesomeness. When they couldn't get more, they rewatched the three films they did have until every frame was memorized and even random stormtroopers got short stories and identification numbers. Lucas then played into that by preempting the OCD behavior of Star Wars fans and came up with stupid names and backgrounds for every single lame CGI sprite that he crammed into the PT.

Shatterpoint was meh. It tried way too hard to make Mace Windu this ultra-unique kewl Jedi who sorta uses the Dark Side, but doesn't fall to it because he is so in perfect control of himself, or whatever. It was lame. It also had nothing to do with the movie Mace, as he didn't do anything remotely like that in the movies.

Palpatine and Boba Fett survived into the EU stories, along with a veritable army of Jedi who escaped Order 66 and random secret Sith apprentices of Vader and Palps. I have no doubt a crotchety crippled Mace Windu survived in the EU and will show his face in a future underwhelming 10-book Del Rey series. I'd just prefer he didn't show up in any future movies.

The again, it might be amusing to have Mace Windu reappear just long enough to decapitate an arthritic, Sarlaac-scarred Boba Fett. Kind of poetic, you know. It rhymes.

Not relevant to Mace.

I didn't know unconscious people screamed and stuff. Or even stood upright. Learn something new everyday.

Hint: You clearly hear Mace grunting in pain as he's jettisoned out the window, where he was still standing, complete with Doppler effect (or whatever the proper term is) as he's projected into the distance.

I wouldn't have a problem with it, if it was just a flashback, hologram, or even a force ghost advising some new character who was struggling to rebuild the Jedi order.

It would actually be nice having someone from the old days. I always hated that the OT crew never knew the heroics and sacrifices of their predecessors.

I don't think any jedi should show up in the ST. why show up now after 20+ years of fighting the empire, the rebel allience did fine without them and Luke did fine without them. to show up now is cowardly

I always thought the way he died in the prequel left the door open for his return. I thought he might pop up in the TV series at some stage and Yoda's line "There is another" could have referred to him...

You easily bring back any member of Jedi Council via Luke watching some old Jedi Temple recordings or somthing.

I'm not that keen on them turning up alive and then going "Great job with destroying the Empire! Sorry I couldn't make it, I was washing my hair..."

It's no different than Yoda. If Luke hadn't have sought him out, he would have continued right on hiding away, too. And he was pretty much the pinnacle of the Jedi way of life to boot.

Hell, Obi-Wan himself was quite content hiding away, too.

Even if Sam never returns as Mace (dead, alive or whatever) it's close to a safe bet we haven't seen the end of Hayden Christensen. If Ewan wants to return as Obi-Wan's ghost then you can bet your bottom Republic credit that Hayden will show up again as Anakin's Force spirit and dispense words of advice to his aging kids, all while looking on creepily and emoting about as well as the guy on the Pringle's can.

Who says it's gonna be his spirit? If his destiny truly isn't yet fulfilled and the Force is still out of balance (and the nine-part saga is his story, not Luke's), then the Chosen One will have to return in the flesh. We've had the virgin birth, the child prodigy, the temptation, the suffering and the sacrificial death (among other Jesus Christ parallels) - now it's time for the Second Coming. We're gonna see Hayden Christensen's Anakin resurrected and fighting alongside Mark Hamill, I'm calling it now.
