Nah, they cut that part from the movie.  The third movie was long enough already, and they thought that adding that part would make it too long.  Christopher Lee was not happy.

Not that funny, Faze, until the "Rated: Hilarious!" part.  I'm going to have to steal that, if you don't mind.

I remember before AOTC came out, I always woundered what happened to the Yoda puppet? I know they couldn't use him for the cool and funny as hell moment when he fought Dooku, but what happened to it? Is is in a museum or in a glass case in Geroge Lucas' house?

Can't tell you what the prices are, you coniving Briton, but here are the games:

Rouge Squadron 2: Rouge Leader
Rouge Squadron 3: Rebel Strike
The Clone Wars
Bounty Hunter
Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast
Jedi Knight 3: Jedi Academy

Jedi Academy and Rebel Stike will probably be closer to full price, as they've been around for a while. The others should be about budget price by now.

Yeah, someone has been leaking promo posters. You can see three of them here: http://www.millenniumfalcon.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=1513

The first one is being used for toy packaging, I think. I like the concept, but it's too cartooney for me.

The third one is great, but maybe a little misleading? I haven't been following spoilers, but I assume Vader doesn't show up until the final minutes of the movie. I would be shocked if we see him with a lightsaber.

The second one is beautiful, though. I hope they use that as the main promo poster. If I see a huge version hanging at my local movie theater, I will be wetting myself on a regular basis.

Also, Nurdbot: Bounty Hunter is a decent game, and it should be dirt cheap by now. Rogue Squadron 3 was a disappointment(the on-foot missions are really bad) but as terrible as some reviewers have said. Personally I think the co-op mode makes it worth a purchase.

I might get Rogue Squadron 2: RL. I'll also try a demo of Jedi Academy. I hope it has multiplayer!

I'm also considering digging up and replaying Shadows of the Empire.

Question: Didn't Lucas at one point said he planed to do 9 Star Wars films?  After Episode 3, he would think about doing episodes 7, 8, 9?
Making C3PO and R2R2 the only characters to be in all 9 films?

Why not?  It could be Mark Hamill's comeback.  the only thing he's accomplished now is being the top voice over artist for Saturday Morning cartoon villains for both Marvel and DC.  He hasn't done anything big as Star Wars, neither has Carrie Fisher.  Harrison Ford was the only person who became a big star after Star Wars.

I would picture Mark Hamill in episode 7 as Luke Skywalker, but in a more Yoda state.  Not that he'd talk like Yoda, but he'd be the top Jedi Master training a new League of Jedi.

From various rumours I've heard, (from the internet, so give it the credit that it's worth), the last trilogy was going to be about Luke's son going to the dark side, and Luke having to redeem him.

But given Lucas' recent efforts with his Star Wars movies, I think ROTJ is a good place to leave it. Plus, everything's wrapped up, anyway.

Not really, Jar Jar Binks doesn't die in ROTS.  What happened to him? The Trade Federation?  And all those Clones?  They were spread across the Galaxy, remember.  It is hard for me to believe that at the end of ROTJ they stopped all those Storm Troopers across the Galaxy.

I pictured for Episode 7, what remained of the Empire still posed a threat and members of ther Trade Federation, who were in hiding during the Empire's reign, come out of hiding.  Also, it was reveal that Vader had a pupil, who becomes the new Sith Lord and if Luke did have a son, he helps to turn him to the dark.

Actually, I'd picture Han and Leia having a son over Luke.  If Luke is a father, who'd be the mother?  it can't be Leia, from obvious reasons, she's his sister.  I'd picture Han and Leia having a son desiring to be a Jedi.

    Around the time that Episode I came out, Lucas said that he would not do any more Star Wars movies after the prequels.  But he could always change his mind.  Or someone else could do them after he dies.

    Supposedly Lucas thought about doing nine movies but changed his mind and decided to end with six.  In the previous plan, Luke wouldn't have met the Emperor until Episode IX, and Episode VI would have been a lot different.  This information comes from Gary Kurtz, who produced the first two movies but then had the usual "creative differences" with Lucas and left to do The Dark Crystal.  This was the plan for the movies as he knew it:
    • Episode I: The origins of the Jedi.
    • Episode II: The early life of Obi-Wan.
    • Episode III: The early life of Anakin (and presumably the fall of the Republic).
    • Episodes IV-V: These movies were made according to the plan.
    • Episode VI: The others find Han, but he gets killed.  Leia leaves to become queen of what's left of Alderaan's people.  Luke confronts Vader again and ends up alone.
    • Episodes VII-IX: In the final trilogy, Luke would have wandered around training as a Jedi.  At some point he would have met his sister, who would not be Leia.  In Episode IX he'd finally meet the Emperor.

    <sigh>

    You do know that there are about a billion novels, comics, video games ETC. (of varying quality) detailing what happens after ROTJ, right? During which a New Rebublic is formed, the war continues in some form or another for about 15yrs, Leia and Han marry and have 3 children, Luke marries and has 1 child, a whole bunch of other crazy crap happens, etc. etc.

    But, if you want ignore those (and plenty do), then is it REALLY such a stretch to believe that the Empire died with it's Emperor? (This IS a fantasy series, rememeber. Fantasy with spaceships.) My take: they all said "Oh bollocks" and surrendered.

    What I told you was a PROPOSED plotline for a movie that will never be created, not my opinion of what it should be.

    And Jar Jar doesn't really have a personal story line, so there's nothing to conclude. And I seriously don't think we need to see any more of him.

    EDIT: Yeah, Action's got one of the other plotline. Our man the Emperor was going to remain all mysterious and non-corporeal for a while.

    Also, (for more trivia,) in a test screening for ROTJ, Lando and the Millineum Falcon didn't make it out of the exploding Death Star. But the test audience didn't like it, so they changed that.

    i just wanted Jar Jar to die in ROTS and I would've been pleased with this being the last Star Wars films.  Though, I would still want to see more Star Wars films, regardless if Jar Jar dies or not.  I would picture the auidence clapping at the very moment Jar Jar is dead.

    That ROTJ test screening stuff is a load of crap. It's freaking Star Wars...why would they have a test screening?

    Although, I always thought it would have been cooler if one of the main characters had died. ROTJ was a little too happy at the end. But oh well.

    And I agree with Nurdy, the Star Wars books rock. I felt they all would have made some great movies, but I get confused with all those K-Wings and E-Wings and stupid New Republic fighters.
    And I remember the first time I was old enough to fully understand what was happening in ROTJ, I mistook Wedge for the TIE Fighter following the Millenium Falcon out of the Death Star and I thought he died. But then I rewound the tape.

    I'd like to ask how much it costs per month and how the system works. I don't even think it's out here yet but it's always worth planning ahead. Is it actually becoming more balanced or do the Rebels still vastly outnumber the Imperials? I can't imagine why anybody would want to be a Rebel anyway, the Empire has got cooler ships and vehicles.

    I think the game has improved on it's second year, the Galactic Civil War might be turning and a lot more things have been introduced. The biggest problem is the Jedi whoring in the main server. I'd rather be a Stormtrooper that can aim rather than some namby pamby peace loving hippe in a robe. As for the cost around 15 a month for me, I don't know.

          Well, official reviews of the DVDs are in, along with official lists of changes:

          Star Wars:
        • The shot of the speeder approaching Mos Eisley has been changed.
        • Han and Greedo shoot almost simultaneously, but Greedo still shoots first.
        • The computer-animated Jabba is new.
        • English writing has been changed.
        • The Dianoga has been altered.
        • Lightsaber effects have been changed.
        Empire:
        • Temura Morrison has redubbed Boba Fett's lines.
        • Ian McDiarmid appears as the Emperor, and has new dialogue.  (He acts as if Vader doesn't know who Luke is, even though Vader is specifically looking for him, but maybe Vader is supposed to be playing dumb.)
        • Luke's scream at the end has been removed.
        Jedi:
        • Darth Vader's eyebrows have been erased.
        • Buildings from the prequels have been added to Coruscant scenes.
        • We see celebrations on Naboo at the end.
        • Hayden Christensen appears as Anakin's ghost.
        Plus various minor changes.

            I suppose I can live with those two changes.  I've never like Luke's girlish scream as he falls from Cloud City.  Totally ruins the character.  And the "Greedo shoots first" bit no longer exists as bad as it does.

            Well, except for Hayden being put in, none of those seem that bad. Nothing worse than what they changed in the special editions. I'd still rather have the original editions with remastered video/audio like the Indiana Jones set.

            I think Temuera Morrison and whoever played Boba Fett's voice from before sounded similar enough. Redubbing seems unneccessary, but whatever.

            I still can't believe the retarded "Hayden in ROTJ" rumor ended up being correct. How stupid. I actually don't want to buy the DVDs, now, it's so stupid(I probably will though. Because I'm stupid).

            The rest of the changes sound like they might actually be ok, though. But only because they are correcting some of the stupidness of the original special editions.
