Lol Az I'll respond later, but to quickly address the thread you linked: you can't assume something I said last November is still my policy now, though I've not read your post in detail so I'm not sure what you were getting at.
He wasn't even willing to employ Force pushes, like he's done in most other fights, including against Sidious. He was clearly taking it easy on Dooku. Likely because of the sentimentality. Shortly after in Y: DR he doesn't even want to hurt Dooku, let alone kill him, and seems to fully believe Dooku can be redeemed.
you were just arguing Yoda tried to cut Dooku's head off, but anyway what's your point? Yoda not being able to help but feel compassionate towards Dooku indicates he would be conflicted about killing him, not to mention again, he didn't even retaliate with Force powers
Yoda's TK would be perfectly effective against Dooku, seeing as Sidious casually choked him across the galaxy, and casually pinned Maul and Savage: the way TK works in canon is you have a barrier, and that barrier can be broken with enough power (see Dooku's force push against Anakin and Obi-Wan, which they blocked). Yoda clearly has enough power, he just didn't retaliate with it, even though he had ample opportunity to.
I'm just saying, Yoda wasn't going all out on Dooku. I'm sure he wasn't trying to avoid killing him, as your quotes have proven, but I don't think Yoda was as bloodthirsty about it as he was with Sidious.
i simply responded to your useless picture you posted, not how close dooku is to yoda
but no, yoda wouldnt hold back against ventress because he knows he's better, he would hold back because thats how the jedi operate. mace fought to capture sidious and not kill him because that's how it works, doesn't mean he didn't try as hard as possible to capture him.
