It's always a constant tennis match of power, bad guys win so good guys can overthrow them, new baddies come along and overthrow for the next generation of goodies etc.

It's the story of Star Wars. Rinse and repeat.

Hey, sometimes the bad guys win. Wink


They may win the battle, little dude, but they lose the war. Wink


Ep III. Boom.


Ah yes, the ending of Episode III is with Vader and Sidious leading the galaxy into darkness, right?

Oh wait, it ended with Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru looking out at the binary sunset with Luke, the future hope of the galaxy. The Sith won the battle, but they lost the war. Good always prevails over evil in Star Wars. Always.

They won the war and 19 years later, a new war was started and they lost that one.

The Sith were pretty dominant 2,000-1,000 BBY. I wonder if SWTOR is going to throw a curveball and retcon it so that the "New Sith Wars" begins with the Great Galactic War so there's a large swathe of the timeline in which the Sith hold a sizable dominion over the galaxy.

I think the point of SW in this case is that it's a circle that is round, and has no end. And we just keep watching it go round and round.

That's what I said! See my tennis match analogy for proof!

And Zero, by war do you mean the never-ending, eternal struggle for power? Or actual wars with battles and shooting and stuff?

Lucas created the Sith in such a way that they could never win completely. Their failsafe was the way that there was always treachery within their ranks and backstabbing. One sith always looking to overthrow another. Hence Banes Rule Of Two.

Ultimately the movies are about good triumphing over evil so even though Ep111 ends on a downer its only half way through the story. It ends with the rebels winning at Endor and the Emperor and Vader being defeated.

I liked him enough to be happy if he did appear in another novel, yes. Though not, I think, as the central character.
