You know...

I saw very good reviews about the Prequel movies. It really opened my eyes, and ever since i saw them I understood everything about Star Wars.

Though, they are a bit long.

You can find them at this website.

Why were the actions taken by some of the principal characters so unbelievable and, well, out of character?

Because Lucas was a lousy writer, that's why. Let's face facts. Something like that would never have gotten past the editors at any of the Big Three SF Mags like Analog, Asimov's or Fantasy and Science Fiction. Plot holes like that just weaken the movies even more, imo.

The one movie that stands up is The Empire Strikes Back because it was written by Leigh Brackett, a real SF writer who understood the importance of a structured story line built upon characterization.

So I am never surprised to see these kinds of embarrassing and awkward mistakes in Lucas's work. Frankly, he's just not that good when it comes to writing a script.

Makes sense.
trololol? Bane was in his 20's before he started his training and he became one of the strogest Sith there was.

Same thing for Yoda...young and vital and 20 years later he's old and dying?? WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED???
Ehm i don't think Obi-wan was in his 20's in Revenge of the Sith. He was older definitely late 30's.

And i am pretty sure if they wouldn't go in hiding and go on a attack again, they would lose. Like mentioned a couple of times, Yoda couldn't beat Sidious.
