you've seen clone wars right/ Darth Maul returned

well if he managed to survive it is all too possible MAce Windu can also. that would be soo cool though.

What about Anakin? what feel you guys about that? would you believe an Anakin come back... the metachorines reconstintute him, we have no idea whether it is possible, kinda like a Gandalf return, , or a medivh return, it's not quite certain how it happens, but it is to combat a great evil like a punishment of sorts to make up for the stuff he did as VAder.

I think fantasy franchises as a whole, not just Star Wars should start letting dead actually mean DEAD.

So, yea i think its a horrible idea

We never saw him dying, so he might have survived that fall, like Anakin survives the fall when he jumps out of a speeder in episode II.

A friend of mine had the idea for a Star Wars pen & paper RPG campaign, that he survived and has fallen to the dark side, while making hunt on imperials deep down on coruscant.

Funny thing is, that I never liked it that Boba survived it (and who knows, maybe he didn't after all, should the new movies start to ignore the current timeline after episode VI). The thing is, I don't mind such survivors if the story is intersting that is told, the Boba story wasn't good, but a Mace Windu could still have potential.

Agreed, sometimes it can make sense, but it just seems to be the rule more than the exception that people return from the dead.

When a popular character dies, it is supposed to emotional but it isent anymore, you just go "Shrug, he will be back soon".

I honestly wouldn't mind this since Mace Windu is one of my favorite SW characters of all time. The fact that he got taken out in such a cowardly move always greatly irritated me.

No he is dead, just let it go already. Also quit bringing up what Anakin did in EP 2, he was actually conscious and focused and infact used The Force to locate where Zam's speeder was going to be at that moment he wouldn't have done so otherwise.

Darth Maul was raised by darkside force users, not quite sith but definately not Jedi, they would not raise Mace Windu, nor would the Jedi, there is no death, only the Force.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Didn't I resolves this issue a while ago. Mace Windu is DEAD.

No, but seriously. I highly doubt Mace of all people will be coming back. Darth Maul's survival is plausible, he was chopped in half and received no other injuries, and was alive when he fell down the shute. And he didn't feel the impact, he grabbed onto an air vent and slid down a shute. (much like Luke did) People have survived those kind of injuries in the real world, so why not in Star Wars? (Especially seeing as Maul is strong in the dark side.) He also wasn't given much screen time and was something of a Boba Fett, didn't say much, but looked awesome anyway.

In terms of Mace Windu, he was was subject to the full power of Sidious' lighting. The most powerful Force lightning ever conceived. And was then shot out of a window and fell several thousand feet or more to the depths of Coruscant. Where his body was most likely collected or left to rot. Such a fall would have certainly killed him, he had nothing to grab onto and was probably dead or at least unconscious when he was rocket out of the window.

And if Windu had survived, he would have made an appearance in the Galactic Empire era, which lasted for about 20 years. Yet he didn't, and he didn't contact Yoda or Obi-Wan. Nor did he make any contact after the Empire fell and the New Republic was established. Basically Windu is dead.

EDIT: On the topic of Boba, his survival is plausible. Death by Sarlaac is a slow, slow death by digestion. Boba could have escaped before the digestible fluids cut through his beskar armour. Beskar being one of the most durable metals in the galaxy. And his death was kinda lame. I totally support his survival.
