This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

"Content in his hut?"  Yoda is Sideshow Bob plotting his revenge in mini-storage.

Dude - I'm not saying that Yoda didn't intend to act against the Empire. I'm saying that his *lifestyle* doesn't seem like he is a rich aristocrat on hard times - longing to get back his riches. i.e. He seems more like Robin Hood living a simple life rather than an aristocratic general of a slave army.

It is technically consistent that in his earlier life he could have been a slave-driving warmonger, but there is no sign of that in the original trilogy.


EDITED TO ADD: The point is that in the original trilogy, the good guys stood up for truth, justice, and freedom. It would have been against the ethos of the original trilogy for someone to suggest using a slave army to defeat the Empire - even though it was an even more desperate struggle than the Separatists in the prequels.

The Rebellion didn't have a Senate to answer to for their actions. By their very name and definition, they were finally fed up with doing thing legally and were going to get some guns and ships and kill the Empire and damn the collateral damage and political fallout.
Just as the PT sanitized the use of a slave army, the OT sanitized the type of guerrlia war the Rebellion would have been fighting. They kinda sorta address this decades later, in Rogue One, after Lucas sold the franchise, and only dip their toe in. Like the Cartoons dipping their toe into the morality of using a slave army.

Funny enough even then it was STILL George Lucas who created Saw Gerrera.
