Star Wars: Tarkin

Tarkin is shaping up to be a pretty decent read. It also reveals Palpatine's incredibly weird first name.

That's actually the most depressing thing I've read in a long time. And I just read a book about how westerners destroyed Brazilian culture.

Yeah, it's a hilariously bad name. But given Lucas's subtlety in later years, a friend pointed out it could have been worse: Eevul Palpatine.

Yup. They got it from him. It was apparently written in the story treatments for the prequels but Lucas never used it. So they decided to.

I'm sorry, Sheev? ROFL*($&@(*$&@(*$&@*([email protected]

I can't look at the most powerful sith lord of all time the same anymore. "Come at me, Sheev". Wow, horrible.

As I've said elsewhere, I'm pretty sure we now have the real reason Sidious murdered the fvck out of his family.

Forget his family, his rise towards the darkside and general disdain towards everything finally makes sense.
