LectertheChef: Obi-Wan earned himself a Bad Motherfarker wallet in that fight.

It must have fallen out of Mace's pocket when he landed at ground level on Coruscant.

That lightsaber will make a hell of a racket in the dryer.

Stratohead: SithLord: Obi-Wan Kenobi - trained mastery of the Force and his lightsaber technique in exiled solitude over the course of seventeen years.  Focused himself to become One with the Living Force as taught to him by ghost Qui-Gon and Yoda.  His lightsaber, an extension of the Force, an extension of his own will.


Maul - a fallen Sith, hell-bent on revenge for nearly thirty years.  Thriving on the dark side, his anger and aggression while being replaced with cyborg legs on two occasions.  Finding and training his brother only to see him cut down by a far more experienced Sith, Darth Sidious who continued to torture him after the duel, extending him to be his silent assassin and to watch as his own mother was gruesomely cut down by Grievous.  He sought the power of the Sith Temple on Malachor to offer insight to his revenge against Kenobi via the Sith Holocron (possibly Darth Treia), and in an act of selfish motivation, was bested by the more patient and skilled Jedi Master on Tatooine.

On top of ending the fate of a sad, troubled character, it also revealed who truly is the Chosen One - Luke Skywalker.

also... Maul was wander around the Dune Sea for days-weeks without proper survival equipment, while Obi Won was fully I think ObiWon had a bit of an edge there as well.

so far as people asking how light sabers are supposed to work...its not like we aren't on the internet to be able to look that shiat up... they have an on off switch.... they generate power, focus it into plasma via crystals, and contain it in a magnetic "force" bottle.

Does it charge up via a USB port?

sno man: clkeagle: jvl: Knowing that the cartoon has resurrected a completely and unambiguously dead guy from the prequels really makes me never want to watch it. So, that's one less thing for my queue. No, don't explain the retcon I don't care about stupid convoluted justifications. This shouldn't be like comic books where death just means an exciting new explanation for a dead guy coming back to life every month.

I haven't been able to make it through more than five episodes of Clone Wars, but like to watch Rebels with my kids. When Maul showed up one episode, I was confused but then remembered seeing some "Return of Maul" cartoon on the DVD rack near a Target checkout lane a few years ago. My daughter asked if that was the guy who was cut in half, and all I could do was shrug and say "he got better."

Was it stupid, given the ending of Phantom Menace? Of course it was. Deeply so. But even a bad idea can occasionally be executed well.

Clone Wars helped me reconcile all three Prequels, and Rebels has been like the apology for RotS all by itself. Hell there is even a CW episode that almost makes JarJar palatable. YMMV, but give them both a try. Seriously, most of the best writing in the Canon-verse.

I just want to add my voice and say that all this is true. The Clone Wars is a lot of what the prequels should have been, and has made them better by extension.

Yes, there are some juvenile episodes of The Clone Wars (the first season, especially the pilot/movie, are the biggest culprits) but there are also some amazingly well-written, deep, moving episodes that do very good things for Star Wars in general.

Even the way they brought Maul back was done with some class and thought. It's not like he sprung up from death completely whole and ready to go... There was a lot of development there. He was a broken man. He went insane. Losing half of his body drove him to embrace his anger even more, to remain powerful in the force.

And why is it so hard to believe that he could survive? Jeez, Anakin survived having his legs cut off, and sliding into molten lava, and then catching on fire across his ENTIRE BODY. He suffered FIFTH and SIXTH degree burns-- It penetrated muscle and burned his BONES. He was in surgery for days, going through amputations, skin grafts, and ultimately having a large portion of his body replaced with cybernetics.

So Maul being bisected and losing his legs, reproductive system, and excretory system seems tame in comparison.

Or let's talk about Grievous, who was just a BRAIN and a HEART in a robotic exoskeleton. Or the B'Omarr Order who were just brains in jars that used spider-droid walkers to get around (you saw them in Return of the Jedi, in Jabba's palace, which was formerly their monastery until Jabba moved in and just took over, allowing them to wander around because he thought they were entertainingly gruesome).

So don't talk to me about how ridiculous it is that Maul didn't die. If anything, Star Wars has made it clear that where there's a will to live, there's often a way for that to happen despite horrific physical damage.

Maul died on Rebels because he was old, he was nearly bisected AGAIN (this time vertically), and because in the middle of nowhere there's not exactly an Imperial surgical center or 2-1B medical droid around to do the job of saving your life.

That duel was the Star Wars equivalent of Goldberg/Lesnar at last year's Survivor Series, and I loved it. :D

I always thought it was considerate of him to turn his lightsaber off as he vanished, instead of letting it burn through the floors "Alien blood" style, all the way to the core.
