Yoda: worst jedi ever?

Poor Yoda. We definitely don't see him at his best. He seems essentially retired by the time we meet him, more monk less warrior. He spends a lot of scenes spouting profoundly unuseful fortune-cookie wisdom, but when he's right about something--don't train Anakin, he's too old--he gets ignored.

Why he wasn't smart enough to team with Obi-wan and take out Sidious and Palpatine one at a time...I can't really say. Going into self-exile and slowly losing his sanity in a swamp just because he fought Sidious to a draw also seems a bit extreme and unhelpful to the galaxy at large, but very impressively...well, Japanese/E. Asian of him, in my understanding.

Comparing him with most of the others seems a little apples-and-oranges to me.

He was literally in the process of dealing the killing blow when Anakin jumped in and cut his hand off and knocked his saber away.

Exactly... it was a trap by Sidious meant to pull Anakin over to the Darkside. Windu was a chump.

Honestly, the only way Annie could have done that damage was with Mace's focus all on Sidious.

Poor poor Annie.
Yea Windu blew all his cooldowns and was unprepped for young vader's betrayal... prob the most annoying/unbelievable part of the series for me. That chapter/scene could have been, should have been so much more awesome.

That movie should have been 4 hours long lol.

Windu even had champion saber but that didnt help....

Judging by the "What have I done?" Anakin probably accidently hit a DS option and didn't know of the escape key.
Kitster is the real hero of the Star Wars saga.

Think about it. We're playing at the very peak of the Jedi's power and influence. Yes, they were just dealt a crushing blow by losing the Temple, but they've been dealing with Sith for years, if not decades, on end.

While three thousand years later, the Galactic Republic is at it's height and power, and while the Jedi Order is still powerful and respected, they've mainly been at peace for centuries. Most Jedi have probably never seen the business end of a Lightsaber in a fight, and there are more scholars and diplomats than warriors. Even the idea of surviving Sith teachings is kept closely guarded by the Masters.

In this timeline, there are probably thousands of Jedi floating about, by the time the movies come about, that number probably has decreased to hundreds. They were wholly unprepared for a fight, hell, the Republic didn't even maintain a standing army.

Stagnation has a way of dulling the senses, which is why Sideous won. He played both sides, to him it didn't matter who won, just that the Republic was weakened enough for him to fulfill a takeover. Not to mention, he was a diabolical genius.
