Maul isn't smart enough to create a new Empire, or even a new league of Sith. Unless its just a mindless "kill dem darn jedi" group. Which if they based a movie off that, then FTS.

When are people gonna accept him for what he really was? A force-using errand boy. An assassin Palpatine never really intended to be a true apprentice. I don't even think his Darth title was ever even legitimate.

Even that title was reflective of his true uses. A maul is a heavy club or bludgeoning implement. That's what he was, a bat the Palpatine swung around.

Then he broke loose after his "death" (I am forced to accept that he lived, but still suspect he's a figment of Kenobi's imagination) and had no one pulling his strings. So he blundered around and tried to imitate his master, but then 'ol Palps found him and laid down the law.

Now he's presumably being tortured and broken again, to make him Palpatine's dog once more. Only this time, he won't even have the comforting illusion that he's an "apprentice" anymore.

And Asoka would only be in her 40-50's by episode VII right? Considering how long the average Jedi lifespan is, (not to mention she's an Alien) I could see her making her reappearance in 7 as a long lost Jedi who comes to the rescue of captured knight Ben Skywalker who's been captured by mandos (hint hint...)

I'll probably throw up if the plot is Mandalorian-centric. Also, Ahsoka is what, 18-20 at the time of the Clone Wars? That's 50 years, at a minimum until the sequel's probable setting (30-40 ABY), so she'll be Count Dooku's age the very youngest. I'm not saying it isn't a far out there possibility of her making an appearance, because it would be interesting to see her character change, but there would be so much explaining to do it's almost not worth it.

Lol, tell me your not one of those people who actually cares about the logicality of Maul surviving? Cause 'the Force' aint' exactly logical.

What is logical in fantasy anyway? Or rather....its logic fantasy that is ok.

For fantasy stuff, you gotta use the fantasy logic.

Its like comic logic, in real terms...Batman isn't human he isn't logical at all by real life logic.

It's more that Maul lives after getting eviscerated and plummeting thousands of feet to splatter on the bottom of a reactor shaft (of the kind that knocked Sidious out of the game) while Qui-Gon takes a single stab beneath the sternum and still dies.

Obviously Qui-Gon wasn't killed immediately, so Maul missed his vitals. He was live long enough to talk to Kenobi after a few minutes of lying on the ground, it's not like he was bleeding from a lightsaber wound... so why the hell is Maul somehow alive?

That's my point, who really cares? My opinion of Maul's return is entirely bases on the benefits its brought to the series, which are abundant to say the least.
