To add to this point, I realized none of the quotes about PT being the prime refer to the Jedi Order. The KotOR CG does. You can be a Jedi without being a part of the Order, so PT being the prime of the Jedi and KotOR being the prime of the Order as an insitution are not contradictory notions.

Rather than point out the issues with the KotORCG quote, which anyone can recognize, justify the positioning that the PT era is instead the golden age, which is my main issue with this entire thread. I use the KotORCG quote to counter the mindless "PT is the supreme era" nonsense. I find it amusing the only legitimate claim to it is actually TotJ / KotOR. Every PT era quote is wonderfully ambiguous and distorted in use.

It's not that I rule out the PT to other eras like TotJ or KotOR. I don't have a solid opinion on which era I even consider the "golden age." The prequel trilogy very well may be the best era, but such an opinion isn't rooted in evidence - quite the contrary, actually. My point is you (and others) are trying to write this PT supremacy as G-Canon law, which it isn't. You even passively admitted in the above post that there are indeed issues with the notion and ambiguity surrounding the Lucas quotes.


This in response to BlueTiger or me?

Except the KotOR quotes attribute KotOR's supremacy being an era filled with warfare. As per the quote, KotOR is absolute in both the institution-respect and the fighting-respect. The comments on the Sith and the Mandalorians are not relevant to the Jedi's power as an institution and, if anything, damaging.

You, particularly in regards to claiming double-standards and basing your argument against the KotOR era.

It's actually quite logical that the PT era is the prime of the Jedi to be honest. They would've thousands of extra years of gathering new knowledge, improving training methods, experiences from past conflicts,...

KotOR being the prime of the Jedi makes zero sense anyway. This is the Jedi after three galactic wars, two explicitly involving the culling of Jedi.

Which doesn't work because the KotorCG quote doesn't share the context of the PT era quotes(or the ones which can be applied to an induvidual's abilities).

Lucas's first quote is very clearly in the context of an individual combatant's ability

The third quote specifically references how powerful the masters are, not the institution.

I already listed several validations for PT paramountcy, none of which you from the looks of things noticed. But once again, no one needs to justify facts. Facts are, by their very definition, absolute truths. They don't require further validation - otherwise they would not be facts.

And given you completely ignored my other point, the CWCG quote does indeed remain factual: the Jedi grew as the Republic grew, meaning they'd be more capable of solving crises as time went on. The Clone Wars take place later in history than the Mandalorian Wars and the Jedi Civil War, so per that statement, the Jedi are better during the former than they were during the latter two.

Enlighten me. Not that I used Lucas' quotes to argue this in the first place anyway.

That's fair.
