Star Wars Things

March 31, 2011

So in addition to the Ewoks (who would have been better had they stayed Wookies as originally planned) there are a few things in Star Wars that bug me.  As much as I LOVE Star Wars.

– Jar Jar Binks- First and most obvious was this super-annoying character. Who, if you think about it, was directly responsible for the fall of the Republic and rise of the Empire.

– Deleted scenes- From Luke and his friends on Tatooine to the wampas overrunning Hoth base to Luke constructing the green lightsaber, there is a wealth of shot and unused material.

-Skywalker-  If they were hiding baby Luke from Darth Vader, why did they still give him the last name Skywalker?  Vader WAS aware that his name used to be Skywalker.  And if he got an inkling of a kid named Skywalker on Tatooine, he could have found him.

– Grand Moff Tarkin-  I always wondered why Tarkin could get away with ordering Vader around.  Shouldn’t Vader have Force Choked the life out of him?  There were other Grand Moffs and I doubt they all got to sass off to Vader.
