It's your Vader's face on page 1 that made me think about it.

That would be so exciting... Far more exciting than the five or six last movies!

And I'm curious about that Vader idea...

I was just looking at a thread elsewhere, commenting on this image, and found this:

“But Vader wasn't really ‘evil’. Wasn't the actions he made because he wanted to bring order to the world, not because he wanted to see people suffer and enjoyed.”

Wow. Lucas must have been shipping the kool-aid in tanker trucks!!

It was the whole point of the prequels, wasn't it?

And it failed: Vader's hunt of Jedis as told by Obi-Wan in the first movie happened to be children being slaughtered!

Vader was supposed to be the Space Opera version of an evil wizard...
He's a mass murderer, a vicious and sadistic killer.

But I guess he just had to throw the Emperor in a hole to be redeemed.

Vader murdered children. The aforementioned kid Jedis. Plus between him and the Emperor, they make make Hitler's extermination of the Jews look like a drop in the bucket. But, yes, all he had to do to be redeemed was toss the Emperor.

Also didn't like that they edited ROTJ and switched out Sebastian Shaw  for Hayden Christiansen as Anakin's Force ghost. Why, exactly, does Anakin's ghost get to be young, but Ben and Yoda's stay old? Is it a statement that Anakin `died' when he became Vader?

From a certain perspective, mine, that's complete nonsense.
