Yeah, kinda sad right?

Remember Naga Sadow? He just ran away and died of old age... Or what about Plagueis, stabbed in his sleep...

Thats the greatest part of Sidious' whole story line. he spent his life betraying the people closest to him, he engineered the slaughter of the Jedi's, he lived his entire life manipulating and plotting things behind the scenes. And when he believed he was about to finally eradicate the last threat, a return of a Skywalker, he was betrayed by the chosen the one, the boy he manipulated and turned him against his love and his friends. To see Anakins redemption like this is awesome, and i think it is particularly fitting than Sidious is helpless as the man closest to him, betrays him and throws him off the catwalk. quite ironic how he was powerless to stop Anakin too. it would have being much worse to see him beaten by somebody given the fact he has spent decades building his powerbase and removing all possible threats to him.

It's a fitting death for Sidious. After all, it's not like he wrested control of the Sith Order from his master after a long and spectacular battle. He simply killed him while he slept. it fits that he would be killed by something dumb like being thrown off a balcony.

If palpatine had lost a fight he would have been beaten like any other Sith Lord

The best thing here is that Luke was able to resist turning but was not able to defeat the emperor

No one bested palpatine in any fight ever, he was the ultimate bad guy

It took betrayal to beat the betrayer

Idk i guess it makes sense. Script wise it seems like an okay end for him, just the execution seemed blah.. maybe if like at the last second as Vader approached, Palatine noticed him and turned 1 lightening hand towards him and vader using the last ounce of his force ability to repel the lightening and then proceed to "chuck" the sith lord.

Mace beat him. And the ROTJ novel confirmed that Luke couldve killed Palpatine but he didnt as it wouldve completely turned him to the dark side.

Mace gained the upper hand for a moment but he hardly "beat him" as he ended dead.

The only scenario where Luke kills Palpatine is either if Palpatine let's him so he would fully turn and he could take over Luke's body or if years later when he's a grand master he's strong enough to beat Palpatine (but just barely).

...Or if Luke would have just walked up behind him while Sidious was electrocuting someone and tossed him off a balcony...

I guess that you are of a younger generation ?

People of my generation (40+) are viewing movies differently than the post-MTV-generation, which has grownj up with a completely different style of movies.

You expect everything to be far more dramatic, because the MTV-style of movies have trained you to expect this.
Slow movies don'tg get any watchers nowadays, because EVERYTHING must be fast, furious and dramatic.
You'll be utterly bored by movies that got the Oscar 30 years ago ...
