Besides, any fight involving Sidious likely involved Lucas as well...

I don't know, I think even now we're underestimating Maul... If you look at it closely, you understand he'd be able to stand against Sidious for a bit, which he did, and of course we all know Maul was fuelled by rage very well, and Sidious just killed his only family....
Ok maybe not everyone, but some characters were shown to being watered down. Sidious, Obi-Wan, even Maul at a time...those are the only ones that come to mind...oh Anakin too as I recall.

It wasn't a constant thing, it varied but they were watered down at points.

Not really for Anakin, he controlled the Son and the Daughter...

Kenobi held off two Incredible duelists, showing his skill...

Maul maybe, the only one who I'd say he was watered down against was Pre Vizla, but really, the guy had a Lightsaber, Rockets, Jetpack, Flamethrower, grenades and little Skin Shredders... And he still lost.

Sidious we can't really tell, because he Fought like once... But he choked people while lifting a hand once and casually walking and taking a speeder. Then Choking someone he can't even see, pretty decent

I said at certain TIMES....they were watered down, yes Anakin was as was Obi-Wan and Maul def was against Vizla....Sidious may have only fought once but previous feats show him greater than what he showed.

Anakin was watered down when fighting Barriss....ya that fight shouldn't have even lasted as long as it did.

Obi-Wan getting beat by a thug?....What? Don't even start me on his fight with Vizla that was laughable.

I'm wondering when this thread will return to its original topic.

He Beat Vizla didn't he? He only got beat when 3 mandos tossed 3 heat seeking missiles at them.
Agreed on Barriss, but it had to be a decent fight, and while it lasted a while, Anakin was constantly on top and never had any trouble.

I get what you mean about watered down, but that ENTIRE Arc was very true to the character's power, as was a lot of the show. If you look in depth at the actual show, you realise most fights where characters are "watered down" they're constantly on top.

It's nice to have a thread to just chat about Star Wars random stuff, though we should probably be using Star's thread for it

In regards to the watered down topic. I need only point to everyone's favorite cyborg General...

It looked to me that Barriss gave Anakin quite some trouble, kicking him, force pushing, disarming and so forth. But yeah...I know.

Yes Obi-Wan did beat Vizla, but just the fight itself Obi-Wan should have just speedblitzed him or taken the saber from him with a force pull or even just restrained him using the force. But then again...wouldn't have been as entertaining...but still.
