The Force is overrated: FACT!

Which Wars?
Return of the Jedi

According to Supershadow's list Luke is the most powerful Jedi in history. And yet up against the Emperor Luke gets jazzed with Force lightning and all he can do is cry for his daddy. He can’t even repel it back like Yoda. I mean seriously, what’s the point in acting-up all bad-ass Jedi in your black clothes if you can’t stop yourself getting fizzed by an aging Emperor’s electroness.

 

Even Windu manages to deflect it with his saber in Revenge of the Sith and he's only ranked sixth most powerful Jedi ever. And if you're thinking that in ROTJ Luke is still a relatively junior Jedi, I say, you’re either a Jedi or you're not. If all you need is some nominal fencing skill and mind-powers that don't work on most people then that makes me a Jedi.

Judgment on The Force: Lady-boy weakness

Which Wars?
Attack of the Clones

Here we go with yet another Jedi battle that results in the baddy getting away due to The Force being all rubbish. It's Jango vs Obi-Wan. Now ok, Jango's got a suit of armor filled with cables and rockets, but seriously. Obi-Wan should be able to Force chuck his ass all over the place. What happens is (yawn – again) a fairly even match with both guys disarmed and at one point and Obi-Wan resorting to a mash-up of kickboxing and breakdancing.

Again, as SLAVE-1 takes off (if The Force Unleashed is too be believed) why doesn’t Obi-Wan pull it out of the sky with his powers? But no, he's too busy running about in the rain losing his lightsaber and tripping over his big stupid damp cloak.

    This article here will help me shape my Star Wars story into something badass, also the Force Unleashed is ok but it ain't Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic...that game kicked ass.

    LOL Nice. I got one, When Obi-Wan force pushes Greivous up into that balcony in the last video, would it really be that hard just to throw the path of his vehicle off a little bit so it falls off the walkway?

    Oh, and your forgetting that there is some strategy in what they do. Yoda takes his fine time to lift the column to make Count Dooku underestimate him. Ben goes emo cuz Luke shows up, and Ben can only truly help if he leaves his physical body.

    You see, it not force that over rated, but Jedi. Translation: the Jedi could blow up planets, but none of them are mentally strong enough. So you would need a super Jedi or God with Jedi powers to do it. Or an autistic person, as TV has shown us in the Eureka series, a Sci-Fi channel original.

    so true, and with all those giant vehicles and machines you'd think they could just use the force to cut some wires and break everything

    Everything could be 'rationalised' by saying that the force is not a tool that can be used at will. It is a presence. If a jedi can forcepush something, it is because the force is set at the moment to allow it. A jedi would feel he could forcemind, like he could(n't?) feel he can't forcewhatever. The force would be a matter of situation, not will to use it.

    Of course if the used The Force to do all that stuff the plot of the movies would be pretty boring, it would just be on big movie of explosions. (Maybe that would be better)

    Did anyone notice how, after Obi-Wan gives up an dies, he just sorta disintegrates into a pile of robes? WTF... ReCaptcha: to aguilar the lost city of gold?!

    LOL This was a great list. I'm a life long Star Wars geek but even I laugh at it sometimes. Although you lost serious points for quoting ANYthing from Supershadow....

    The beginning question was one of the questions that was asked on one of the pages.
  • LOUDcarBOMB - April 24, 2009 12:16 a.m.

    "Why when Obi-Wan is riding his Boga why does he get no sense of precognition that he’s about to be shot by the clones and their big gun?" Well... basically one fact that you didn't see is that the Sith used the Force to cloud the Jedi's mind so that they can't see what is about to happen to them. In other words... they couldn't see the future because of the Sith.

    you may have a point with a few things. but you also have to remember that when yoda had trouble lifting the xwing, he was also very old and weakened. and had been out of touch with The Force for some time so as to not be felt through it by vader. and when you consider that there are only a fair few that have the ability to use and focus The Force, that greatly decreases the extent to which an individual can accomplish with The Force alone.
