And a good thing too, this is why the post-Roth is in dire need of revision

Ok. Droids are mechanical. The Force is only in organic things. So no, there is no way.

a force sensitive droid would be the death of the great saga/starwars, i like/love star wars because its a science fiction yet you feel there is some logic on all of it, that made/makes it different than any other saga, so making a droid force sensitive is.... just pushing it to much, i can try to understand that a force sensitive can be so powerful that he/she can move an asteroid from its orbit as in force unleashed(which was the worst thing ever) but a force sensitive droid is something that my mind cant process!

I hope this was never canon. Although I must admit, upon reading its Wookieepedia page I was touched by the story of a brave little droid who sacrificed himself for the good of the galaxy.

Not on George Lucas's watch. The idea of the theme of droids being detached from nature completely is too strong a theme of his to see him discard that. They represent the distance between humanity and nature that technology creates, so of course they would be cut off from the living universal force in his world of icons and archetypes.

Considering he said Vader was losing his touch with the Force because he was 'more machine than man' - so guess this whole thread has turned silly.
I had a signature. It was right - but now it's just a kick in the booty, so there's no need.

Just a question for everyone. What makes you think you need Midichlorians in your body to use the force? Why not just use the Midichlorians in other peoples bodies. Lets point out the flawed logic here with an example

In order to come up with a cure for cancer, you must be a cancer victim.

Your example itself is flawed, in the way that it does not apply. A better example would be this:

Why learn/study in order to become more intelligent? Why not just use other peoples intelligence instead?

You can't 'feed' of other peoples intelligence and make it your own. In the same way you can't 'feed' off other people's midichlorians. Its inside their body, not yours, and therefore is not part of you - you therefore cannot use it. Much like organs, midichlorians are specific to the person, and if inserted into some else body or somehow tapped into, they would be rejected.
