    You're the same guy that thought Nuka World was good because it was "fun"

    Sorry, I forgot you were the guy who thinks video games have a point other than entertainment.

    But yes, I don't have a lot of fun watching characters I like be brutally murdered on screen for drama.

    That second reply shows that you were attached to these characters and their deaths had an emotional impact. I don't even have to try argue, you basically said that media isn't all about brainless entertainment by your reaction to the deaths of these fictional (not real) characters.

    8/10 is meant to signify I enjoyed the movie and I thought it was good. I guess my thing is, "Is it Star Wars?"

    I haven't read every comment so sorry if I missed that. I think the tonal shift was good because it stopped it from being too similar, which was my big gripe with TFA. And the ending was was sad, but because their final moments were completing their mission (and SW fans know that these plans help to destroy the Death Star) it became more bittersweet.

    That Darth Vader bit at the end was complete fan service, but it was fucking awesome and done right. +20 c00l points

    I think they should have removed Tarkin and done more Vader in the movie personally. He should have blown up Jediplanet.

    Yeah but it made more sense to be Tarkin, he was the Governor after all. At this point in time Vader was just that Sith warrior that worked for the Emperor (I might be wrong it's just that Disney un-canonized a bunch of stuff so I don't know if he still has any titles/official positions in the Empire).

    Vader becomes the Supreme Commander of the Empire after ANH but before he's the Emperor's Jedi advisor. Irony points.

    Wasn't Vader more like the big warrior (ala Lanius) while Tarkin was akin to one of the people in command of said warrior during ANH? IIRC, Tarkin could order Vader around and not fear being choked at any time due to his position.

    I recommend the 25 issue Darth Vader series on Kindle and in TPB. It basically says after ROTS, Vader was beaten into a henchman.

    The discovery of Luke Skywalker's existence and Palpatine's mistreatment drives him to plot to kill his master.

    Yeah Tarkin holds more formal power than Darth Vader. Also, Tarkin is a better bad guy than Darth Vader, would have loved to see more of him.

    Shame Vader did not get to show up as much but that last bit with him was amazing. It really does a good job with showcasing how much it sucks going up against Vader with blasters and no Force.

    I felt sorry for the rebels, especially the guy pounding at the door. Imagine the terror, I'd piss my pants for sure.
