The Force is overrated: FACT!

Oh yes it is! 9 reasons why the Jedi superpower is a right Yoda rubbish!

Which Wars?
Return of the Jedi

So Luke strides into Jabba’s crib decked out in his take-my-ass-seriously, all-black wardrobe.

“You will bring Captain Solo and the Wookiee to me”, he says.

“Your mind powers will not work on me boy”, says Jabba.

And that’s that. So how long did Luke spend learning and practicing those mind powers just for that? He might as well have skipped that class for all the use it was. If Luke’s a Jedi why doesn’t he just lift Jabba up with his powers and chuck him down the Rancor pit, before going to town on everyone else with his saber? Because he can’t, cos The Force is massively overrated, that’s why. Oh and that’s not even bringing up the fact that Luke Force pulls a blaster to use on Jabba – what’s that all about?

Judgment on The Force: Totally useless

Which Wars?
Attack of the Clones

So lets get this straight. Yoda goes up against Dooku and it’s a stalemate with Force powers. Now, all the way through the original trilogy and in The Phantom Menace Yoda is supposedly the don, but we’d never seen him in action proper. And when we do, well – big disappointment. If you refer to notorious Star Wars fan boySupershadow(who’s legitimacy has been called into question by the web at large, but even so has a lot of insight on his site) then Yoda is the second most powerful Jedi ever and Dooku AKA Darth Tyranus is only the fifth most powerful Sith. Even accounting for the (semi-popular fan-boy) belief that Sith Lords are stronger, Yoda should have been able to carve him a new anus.

But no, it’s a stalemate with Dooku seemingly showing a better grasp of The Force by multi-tasking both saber fighting and Force pushing that lump pillar onto Obi-Wan. Yoda then seemingly has to use all his efforts to keep it from crushing the downed Jedi. Again, if Starkiller (the lead in The Force Unleashed) can down a Star Destroyer, surely Yoda could prevent Dooku’s ship flying off with his mind ‘n’ shit.
