Miffed Mystique In Star Wars...Is it needed?

Do you wish that you had never known Boba Fett's history?
Do you wish that the rise of the Empire remained a secret?
Do you wish that we had never seen the Clone Wars?
Or Do you wish that the story of Anakin had never been told at all...

This thread, I'm sure is pretty vague, it's just basically veering off from another thread and so it needs a place because it might actually spark some interest. Basically, I am wondering whether general fans of Star Wars (or fanboys whatever) have wished that certain things in Star Wars legend should remain mysterious.

Sure, theres a big market for '111 hotspots to Yoda's homeplanet' and all, but would you rather that the little Green thing remained purely on his own (no Yaddle) and that his species never revealed... wink

Dude, there's already enuff mystique; especially about Palpatine and Yoda. Revealing Boba Fett's past and showing the Clone Wars was a good thing, cuz people wondered and speculated about them for some 20-odd years. So Lucas did them a favor by showing them and shutting them up.

Ah, they just didn't capture the mythologic view of the PT some people with imagination had thanks to rushed story and bad directing probably.

The history of Boba Fett wasn't really impressive, it was more like sappy.
Vaders character was horribly degraded by the final outcome of what happened in his life.
And the fall of the jedi wasn't really special too in ROTS.
Also the clone wars turned out to be nothing really.

So, yeah.. I guess the mythology of SW was a bit ruined IMO.

I dont know, but if the prequels were never created that would only bring good.

Re: Mystique In Star Wars...Is it needed?

No. He was a two-bit character. I could care less.


Do you wish that the rise of the Empire remained a secret?


I don't recall it ever being a secret.


Do you wish that we had never seen the Clone Wars?



No, actually I wish I saw more of them. They could have made eight movies on the wars alone. Wasted opportunity, really.


Or Do you wish that the story of Anakin had never been told at all...


Hmm... I think concentrating on Anakin was a poor idea myself. He wasn't a very deep character or very believable. He had no real goals, no understandable ideology. I would have prefered a tragic antihero to Anakin by far.

Good. you have all fallen for my master plan blah blah. this is good with difference of opinions...

Yes. I agree Ianus they wasted an opportunity with the Clone Wars really...

And About the Rise Of The Empire...more mythical I mean, my mistake, but something made of legend instead of a bunch of CGI-Stormie-lookalikes killing off some CGI Robots and Jedi.

And true, Anakin is bit of a flat character.

I think that a lot of the mythical Clone Wars feel was drenched with too much emphais on the politics in the PT era aswell...Politics are fine for real life but in Star Wars...nah

I always imagined the Clone Wars being primarily ship battles myself. A million Clone troopers could do the job if they were mostly operating heavy warships along with other personnel. But all those ridiculous ground battles... pfft.

The old wisdom says: Getting kills wanting.

Of course we wouldn't like to know all this NOW, but if none of this had been published we would be all hoping for something to come.

Yes I know lol. But with hindsight we can act like smug gits and flame everything for the smallest innacurracy.


Btw. I'm thinking along the lines that Leia and Luke never actually realised they were brother and sister, but rather it was heavily implied. Probably wouldnt work but may have been intersting on the outcome...

of course you need mystique. with out that you would know everything about star wars, and then it would be useless.

I don't think being lost neccessarily dictates that outcome, does it?

no. im talking about always wanting to know more about the force/jedi/sith.star wars in general. we didnt camp out at the theater to see natalie portman..well..not entirely..but anyway, we wanted to know more about the sall of the republic and vaders transformation, which is looking for knowledge we dont have.

That is true. But the point is that not everyone enjoys having all mysteries solved. Still, GL was ambiguous with a lot of things.

I agree with Janus, the Clone Wars was wasted. They could have made way more movies off of them(just like LOTR. They should have made five, 2 hour movies).

Yes, mystique is needed, but there is plenty. We know of nearly nothing in any great detail that happened prior to 5,000 B.B.Y.

Thats 20,000 years that are unknown to us.
