Dooku wonders, "has Skywalker's voiced rage actually called the ceiling down?... Assuming that he had grown powerful enough to had collapsed the dome, the end result was simply further evidence that he would someday undo himself." [p. 300]
As noted, didn't include everything but included a lot still.

Very nice work OP.

OOC so to speak, I think Vader suffers from being the very first villian to be introduced in SW. It was 1977 and CGI did not yet exist. Lucas did a great job with the space battles in ANH, but the Lightsaber duels suffered from the limited movie technology available at that time. In modern movies they also give much more care to melee fighting scenes with bringing martial arts coordinators and all that stuff. In the OT the sword fights look kind of wooden compared to what we are used to see in recent movies.
But even with that said Vader is one of the most iconic villians in pop culture and his mask and signature breathing sound is known to almost everybody, their grandma and cat included. He just didn't get that much screentime as well in OT and many of his feats are only hinted at.
So a thread dedicated to shine some light on why Vader was probably the most feared man in the Galactic Empire is highly appreciated (I guess he was more feared than the Emperor, because he was more visible than the latter).

Of course. I apologize. I did not realize you did not want anyone to add on if they knew of anything else. The "bump" to get more thoughts f'ed me up. Pardon my foolishness.
Peace is a lie. There is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory my chains are broken.

No need to apologize. Never said you couldn't add anything, just that I didn't add everything.
