Luke Skywalker: Return of the Jedi

Luke Skywalker: Return of the Jedi

Luke Skywalker: Return of the Jedi by VampireWarith
Luke Skywalker: Return of the Jedi by VampireWarith


Luke Skywalker, son of Darth Vader, farm boy, rebel pilot, Grand Master of the Jedi Order and became of the most powerful Force users ever (non-canon/Legends).

He become such a master of the Force that he could bring down an AT-AT Walker.
Flew the Millennium Falcon single-handedly using only the Force, manipulating its controls and operating it with a skill that not even a full crew could manage and so on (again, non-canon/Legends).

2016 Update: I wanted to do another picture of Luke and replace the other one I had, I don't like it anymore. I still prefer his black outfit, robe and green lightsaber from Return of the Jedi.
I wish they had kept that look with him in TFU, but then again, I wish they did a lot of things differently in that film.

Star Wars Films
I think the first time I saw the SW films, I was 4 or 5 years old (1986 or 87). The first time I heard Darth Vader say, "I am your father"… I thought he was lying, tying to fool Luke, trying to make him believe that. But when I watched episode VI and Yoda himself said that Vader is his father… that theory came to an end. I like the older Yoda and Obi-Wan better… but he flat out lied too Luke about what happen to his father… his whole Anakin and Vader are two different people and that it was from a center point of view… oh please… I can understand not wanting to tell a young innocent farm boy that his father is second in command to the Emperor, has cause so much death and suffering… but for god sakes old man, admit the fact that you had to lied, that you couldn't tell the truth. I know that there were rewrites, George Lucas didn't have a detail back-story written for Vader during A New Hope, but Obi-Wan just comes across as someone with a lame excuse.

I hated the digital stuff they added in during the 90s, they were not needed, they literally shove all that CGI crap in your face, there out of place, they haven't aged well at all compared to the old school effects that have become ageless.

The prequels were unnecessary, the back-story to Anakin wasn't important enough to be told on film.

I didn't care for The Force Awakens, I knew the film was going to have bigger problems than the lightsaber cross guard. The story was rushed, a complete repeat of A New Hope, everything the characters did in the original 3 films ended up being meaningless, someone has fallen to the darkside, another Emperor, Jedi are killed, another Empire has risen and another super weapon got built. The acting from everyone was terrible, the dialog was crap, there's too much humor, the main leads were annoying, uninteresting, and I just couldn't care about any of them. Poe is a wannabe tough guy, Finn is an irritating comic relief (give me Lando Calrissian any day), Ray is a Mary Sue and Kylo is an evil brat throwing a fit.

Rogue One, another pointless prequel that didn't need to be told, the storyline is all over the place and just confusing. With dumb boring uninteresting and unlikable characters, the film just relies on action to be entertaining and once again, Disney and the fans try to make a big deal of having a female lead again in a SW film. I never wanted to see the story of the rebels finding the plans for the first Death Star... who cares????

The Last Jedi turns Luke into a joke who's just a coward (Mark Hamill not only hated Luke's characterization but the films as well), Rey continues to be a Mary Sue to the point where even Yoda says that she doesn't need Luke to train her. Kylo is evil just for the sake of it, Snoke is a pointless villain that we know nothing about and is killed off pretty easily. Poe gets a boring pointless love interest, Leia uses a plot convenience Force ability, both the First Order and the Resistance are just dumb and weak.

For me, the SW films started with A New Hope and ended with Return of the Jedi.

Light or Dark side?
The light and dark side of the Force is one thing that I really don't like about Star Wars, it's literally a black and white concept, characters are written to be shallow and become an evil person very easily in order for the story to have a villain. The KOTOR games, while they are very good, they hardly left any room to be a complex character. Some books and comics have it that even something as simple as getting angry (something you can't avoid from feeling and expressing, it's a normal human emotion), or even knowledge, like trying to learn the history or the secrets of the dark side, somehow that's enough to corrupt a person and become evil... or that both the light and dark side is seen as something that possesses you, forcing you to do this and that, it makes it seem as if people who follow the dark side are not really guilty of any crime because it was the dark side of the Force making them to do it...

Both Jolee Bindo and Kyle Katarn have probable given some of the best speeches about the Force and the Jedi.

"Everyone thinks the Jedi are perfect, that they can do no wrong. They think the Jedi Council is completely incapable of injustice"

"The Jedi are just as capable of injustice as everyone else."

"Light side, Dark side, they don't mean the same to me as they do to you. I don't see in absolutes. I want to stop Malak as much as anyone. But I don't have to join the order to do it. Look at Carth, or Canderous. They're with us in this quest, but they aren't Jedi. The capacity for good or evil, like the Force itself, is in all living creatures. And belonging to the Jedi order, or the Sith, or any group, won't change what you are at your core."

"Love causes pain, certainly. Inevitably, love is going to lead to as much sorrow and regret as it does joy. How you deal with the bad part of love determines your character, what determines the dark side's hold over you. Love doesn't lead to the dark side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled, but passion is not the same thing as love. Controlling your passions while being in love, that's what they should teach you to beware, but love itself will save, not condemn you."
--Jolee Bindo

"The Force is a tool, Jaden. Sometimes a weapon, sometimes a salve. Dark Side, Light Side, these are distinctions of insignificant difference. Do not fall into the trap of classification. Sentience curses us with a desire to categorize and draw lines, to fear that after this be dragons. But that is illusion. After this is not dragons but more knowledge, deeper understanding. Be at peace with that."

"Remember, abilities are not inherently good or evil, it's how you use them."
--Kyle Katarn

I'm not really a fan of Vader, unlike half the fan base, I very much see him as an evil villain. He killed a lot people and was responsible for a lot suffering in the galaxy. His only redeeming act was saving his son by killing the Emperor. Now the Emperor was far more evil than him, he was capable of great sadism and cruelty. No redeeming qualities of any kind and he was beyond redemption in any shape or form.

I hated the prequels, the only character I liked from those films was Count Dooku and for two reasons
1: I've always liked older veteran characters in battle showing their years of skills and experience.
2: He was played by the legendary Christopher Lee who was no stranger to playing a villain and he was the only one who gave any kind of acting performance. But even someone like him couldn't save the script.

But when I end up liking the villain more than the hero… something's wrong. I didn't like anyone in Episode-I… not even Darth Maul because like Boba Fett, he is overrated to the max. He was not that powerful or skilled, the whole time he's fighting he did nothing but retreat until he couldn't go anywhere else. His fans make him out to be on the "chosen one" level of power. He was not very interesting, he lacked any kind of motivation or personality, and he needed to be killed off because he's just a one-dimensional character. You can't rely on just a stunt man who has no acting ability or experience to give real emotional facial expressions. It's no wonder they just have him looking mad and has his voice dubbed. But for some idiotic reason he keeps coming back in both the comic books, video games and in the CGI series. He looked cool in black and red but he's just a silent anger killer… that's all he's got.

Favorite Star Wars Video Games
Star Wars Arcade: The first Star Wars game I ever played and it's still good.

Knights of the Old Republic I-II (Xbox): Unlike the prequels, these two games really open up the Star Wars universe, it kept it alive and didn't just repeat the same storyline of the Rebels fighting the Empire or the clone wars.

Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (SNES): This was a hard game to play (then and now) and you will need cheats to get all the Force powers and passwords in order to get to the other levels.

Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (SNES): I rented this one but I never got to finish it.

Star Wars: Rebel Assault (Sega CD): We rented this with the Sega CD system and my second oldest sister beat it before I did and back then, that was rare. But it was good because then I got to go to any level I wanted too before we had to take it back.

Honorable Mentions
Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire (N64): I was pretty good playing this back in the day, but now the controls are too difficult to use, but I still like the storyline. There's a PC version, but the only real differences are the cut scene graphics of the characters, which are not very good when compared to the artwork style of the N64 cut scenes, Luke looks the worst and the voice acting is so-so.

Rogue Squadron (N64): My dad was really into this one and he beat it before I did.

Battlefront I-II (Xbox): They were alright but it really wasn't my kind of game.

Games I Hated
When it comes to others, I didn't like The Force Unleashed at all, instead of continuing to work on KOTOR-III, they wasted their time on TFU and its sequel. It was a God of War rip-off in the game-play (I didn't like that game either), the storyline didn't make any sense and the main character was a nothing-special skinhead. Bringing down a Star destroy has to be one of the most frustrating things to do in a video game. In the novel and comic book, that Star destroy was already falling to the planet, he just redirected it and was barely able to get out of the way when it crashed. In the comic he was screaming his head off, to the point where it looked like his head was going to explode because of how much power it took from him just to do that.

He and his clone just comes across as a Gary Stu that's written as if it's a fan fiction that can do anything and take on anyone at anytime. He had no personality, in both games he accomplishes nothing except he somehow kills Jedi Masters, but because he switches side in a heartbeat (after years of being brainwashed by Vader), he doesn't even get a slap on the wrist. He beats Vader, had the chance to kill the Emperor (he's even told that killing Palpatine is not worth it for some dumb unexplained reason), he captures Vader in the sequel (this alone contradicts Lucas philosophy of "the chosen one")... but still, he doesn't kill him... because killing him would be falling to the dark side......... talk about shootty writing... and I thought the prequels were bad. They literally wrote themselves into a corner with that one.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II (Xbox 360) Review by Mike Matei

They did the same thing that Metal Gear: Sons of Liberty did, you play the character that everyone wants to play as (Vader), but only for the first level, your then stuck with an unknown punk for the rest of the game. Give me Bendak Starkiller from Knights of the Old Republic any day, he's someone who actually lived up to have a name like that.
