        Most Darths, including the canon ones, have stupid names. Like, Sidious' name is literally the word "insidious" but missing the first two letters. Its always been lame.

      They operated openly, Muunilinst was the Switzerland of the galaxy, everyone used them because they guaranteed security, chose no sides, and had been doing so for millennia. The Clone Wars didn't change that.
      >but what about AOTC and them signing the treaty with Dooku?
      They agreed to maintain Separatist funding, just like they did the Republic's, and the Hutts', and everyone else. Nothing in the treaty stipulated the Banking Clan cutting off funding to the enemies of its clients, EVERYONE was a client.

      humans are far and away the most widespread and common, though. All other species are deficient by comparison in breeding, mobility, intelligence, lifespan, force sensitivity, or some combination of them.

      The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise - Sith Legend absolutely is something Sheev conjured up. There was no legend around him. He was the Dark Lord, and Palpatine was the only one who knew because that's how the rule of two worked.

      When I first watched the scene Palpatine tells Anakin about Darth Plagueis, my imagination went wild thinking about a Sith lord from many centuries ago that had his story passed forward through many generations of the Sith.
      I was so disappointed when I found out he was just Palpatine's former master.

        At the time of ROTS, Darth Plagueis was just some obscure reference George had come up with. He didn't become Palpatine's master until some more writers came in and finished writing the story.

        I kind of love this about star wars these days. It's supposed to be this grand tale of redemption and the hero's journey, but it is one of the most cynical franchises to ever exist. Everything about it is engineered to sell merchandise and just keep pumping out new content forever. Ironic.

          buddy, george has been riding the merchandise since the beginning.

          consider the gap between the prequels and the OT. Merch was still being churned out and people ate it up.

          It's always has been about the merch, always will.

            possibly because that hack coasted off the artistic genius of Maquarrie and Williams and made billions off the concepts and scores made by both, merch included.

            Yep, that's exactly right, but at least back then there was the hype around the OT and what was Anakin like a Jedi and all of that. God, the Disney trilogy basically ripped off the story from one of the very first EU stories. Now the mask is just off, and it's a lot easier to see Star Wars for what it's always been.

      The Empire still employs aliens. They're just not officers or troopers.

        so they're not the Imp of Mankind, that still qualifies as humano-centric. The fact that a single officer from a species as near-human as the chiss had to be a literal strategic supergenius to get to the top level kind of implies a supremacist bend to it.

          Of course, the Empire is extremely racist. I'm just saying they're not going on xenos genocide campaigns; they have uses for aliens.

            I don't have a rebuttal, per se. But I do know that at least to cover his tracks, palpatine had most of the prequel era factions exterminated.

              Those were corporations, not races. The Empire attacked and occupied Kashyyyk, like, five separate times, but they never tried to exterminate the Wookiees. They just chased them away or enslaved them.

              the geonosians were 100% exterminated, and if you take the recent canon as any indication, so were the Kaminoans.

              and why would they? They're one of the strongest humanoid species in the galaxy alongside the dowutins. If there was anything that threatened the initial stages of the Empire's prosperity, Sidious had it dealt with on a genocidal scale: Mon Cala, Geonosis, Kamino, etc.

                Look at that, you're right. But the implication is that the Geonosians were in a unique position to possibly rival the Empire in superweapon construction.

                Yeah thats true, fitting together that scene in Ep II and R1 (I liked it a lot don't @ me plz)

                the geonosians with their weapons expertise were commissioned to create the initial plans of what would become the death star and when the empire rose and cut all ties men like Galen Erso were called upon to put the pieces together of the alien design and add whatever improvements he could.

                they probably didn't want the Empire's flagship superweapon to be known to have been designed by a hideous race of bugs.

                I think it was that they didn't want people knowing where the Death Star came from period. If you saw it, you were fricked and that was that. Nosy frickers would ruin the mystique.
