As the title says.

We know the emperor is supposedly immortal, but the way he achieved it was.. let's just say he won't be winning any humanitarian awards..

That is one way to achieve immortality.. but in the infinite wonders of the galaxy there must surely be other ways to achieve this ultimate power.

I don't know much about lore.. or rituals and what not.. only about the one ritual
Spoiler
but i don't know if that one ritual alone would be enough for you to achieve immortality

But at what cost?

Lord Scourge is very direct when he expresses what he misses and what he regrets after the Emperor gave him immortality.

He can't feel... not just emotions, but he can't feel sunlight hitting his skin, or the smell of something pleasant. He sacrificed everything that makes life... life. Ironic. Sure, there may be less costly methods.. but I'm sure they don't come without consequences.

I Hope they can give Sith inquisitors this ability in the future but it would be a thing you will have to work for by going on a quest for spirits that will be vary limited in open world so not every si can achieve it.

How would you even notice it? It keeps you from dying from old age. You can still be killed. The game won't go on that long.

Well...then you potentially have a problem where you have eternal characters in a Star Wars storyline. They would have shown up in later books/movies/whatnot, but didn't.

As far as I'm concerned, physical immortality is overrated and would be very bogus.

Well my idea for that is, my character goes into hiding for 4000 years.. or gets frozen in carbonite stasis.. either 1 of those would work.. and HEY PRESTO! i come back after the movie saga.

Into hiding. For 4,000 years?

Yeah, I don't think so. Especially as the galaxy starts coming down around their ears.

Carbonite...meh. I suppose it could happen, but what a boring twist to the story. I'm not sure about all the implications of being frozen in carbonite, but it seems that in the old republic it was a viable thing to do, but I seem to recall Han Solo being frozen. They weren't sure he would survive, and his block had all sorts of readouts and gadgets on it. Better hope that the ones responsible for keeping you alive for four millenia don't break down.

If you are immortal I guess a little 4,000 year nap isnít to long.
