    ...and that's the problem at the core of the PT anyhow. Why bother with things like character information when you have Sam Jackson and a cool purple lightsaber? Kind of like how all we know about Maul was that he must have been bad cause his saber was red. :rolleyes:

    If you want to call the Empire Nazis, then the Jedi were Neville Chamberlain.

    Really, I think Darth Maul was just an attempt to make lightning strike twice and see if the could manufacture the kind of popularity that developed naturally with Boba Fett. "Look, a cool looking guy who does practically nothing."

    Back in the 90s I played TIE Fighter and ... and ... I enjoyed it. Dear Dark Lord what have I done? :wah:

    As deep as I am into Star Wars I'm probably one of the greatest war criminals in all of history to a guy like Ian. Even when I was a small child the classic Kenner Stormtrooper was my favorite of the original action figures and the one I had the most copies of.

    Hell, I had a poster of Bela Lugosi as Dracula up on my bedroom wall for most of my childhood. Clearly, I am beyond redemption.

    Heck, I dressed up as Dr. Zaius for Halloween once, which must mean I support the forced lobotomization and gelding of talking humans. As the Sacred Scrolls decree!

    And let's not even get started on time I played a safe-sex cephalopod at Norwescon ages ago . . . . .

    I always thought the clickety-clack of the stormtrooper armor was one of the coolest sounds in a movie. I'm so going on trial for war crimes, aren't I? :(

    How bad can a Stormtrooper possibly be?

    Some of them can't even see straight.
