Few more thoughts:

It's a good thing Star Wars weaspons cauterize the wounds they make, or these films would be a lot bloodier, and we also wouldn't have Darth Vader, since Anakin would have bled to death.

Leia owns Padme.  Come on, if Han had gone nutso and tried to kill her, would Leia just lay down and die?  Heck no.  She would have shot the bastard.

Finally, I also subscribe to the "Mace might not be dead" theory.

-Mace is dead. Yoda felt his death (as seen by his near collapse) as soon as Mace fell down.
-Also, Han didn't choke his love to near death. I'm pretty sure that if oxygen is cut off to the brain, that person would be weak (and possibly go unconscious), especially if that person is pregnant.
-As for the weapons cauterizing wounds, I totally agree. Anybody think there was a screw-up in Episode IV, when Obi-Wan cut off that one guy's hand, and when the camera showed the severed limb, there was quite a bit of blood? (Alot, considering it was from a lightsaber.)

I'd have to go and watch again, but I only remember Yoda near collapse during Order 66.

Didn't that get edited in the dvds or something?

And while I'm thinking about it, I want to know how Lucas swung getting the robotic fifth Teletubbie to play the midwife droid.

>Anyone notice that close-up of Mace Windu when he was fighting Palpatine? He looked weird as hell.
>Also, anyone notice that when Anakin was shown powering up his lightsaber to kill the "younglings", his lightsaber sounded a little different? (This may have just been me though.)

-Yoda was shown collapsing a few minutes after Mace died. He was also shown collapsing when the Jedi were being slaughtered.

-So you're saying the only reason Padme died, was because she lost the will to live? I thought she lost the will to live after Anakin choked her, not before. You're probably right on this point, seeing as she was for a lack of better words'going away' from Anakin, and since she was still conscious when Anakin was choking her. So looking back, you are right.

Why are you asking for spoilers, if you're going to see the movie soon. Wouldn't that destroy the suspense. Well, okay, Anakin becomes Vader. There that should satisfy your thirst for spoilers.  tongue

How many times have you people seen Episode III? I've seen it three times already. (As much as I like Star Wars, I don't want to get sick of it.) I might see it again when my school year ends, but I'm not sure.

Must admit I'm not the most hardcore of SW...mostly due to not seeing it at the right age or something...

I went to see Episode III with 7 other people and I was the only person who liked it. Most felt cheated by lack of story elements but I think it led nicely into IV territory. I do plan on seeing them all in one sitting sometime, as long as there's a mute function on the dvd... wink

Watched that part again tonight, and yes, exactly - a few minutes later.  Palpatine had time to recover, speechify, and name Vader before Yoda had any reaction shot.  The reaction shot came directly after The Naming, which infers that was what Yoda was sensing.  If the filmmakers wanted Yoda to be reacting to Mace's death, they should have shown it when Mace died.

Aqualish have different physiologies then most other races. Their blood has an extremly high boiling point and there veins are extremely robust, not even charring shut at the touch of a lightsaber.

Yoda was also feeling the deaths of thousands of other jedi knights. We have seen many other characters stand up to many salvos of sith lighting. I for one believe he left Mace Windu to fall and he may or may not have slowed himself down and survived. I did see a very entertaining fanfic about the latter option, but either way, I don't think it was the lighting that killed him.

Well, perhaps the fall did kill him, and falling from a high-rise on Coruscant... it'd take several minutes before he hit the bottom, yeah?  tongue

But you're probably right.
I finally saw it just now BTW - good film, I liked it. Better than I expected. Played very nicely into Episode IV -

In which time he'd have plenty of time to recover enough to force push himself to safety, a la Episode 2.

Plus he was missing a hand... might have broken his concentration a bit.

Not that I would rule out any possibility, Windu seemed badass enough to pull it off.

With all the traffic on coruscant it's not likely he hit the ground...

EDIT: Palpatine is looking at death star plans before Mace tried to arrest him, I saw it on my bootleg about a million times already.

No.

Windu is dead. Unless anyone wants to see if they can survive being shocked, having your hand lopped off and being thrown out the Empire States Building go ahead. I'll have your stuff in advance  tongue .
