- When things go down, Mace decides to go have a little chat with Palpatine.

I'm guessing Palpatine takes out Mace with his lightsaber in his office on Coruscant

Yeah, so do you think Palpatine will be dressed as the Chancellor or as Sidious/Emperor when he kills Mace?

Don't know who the "bad egg" will be, but with all the stupid hoopla over Lucas using Jamaican/Oriental accents in TPM, there is no way he's going to make the major black character in the prequels out to be a bad guy...just my opinion...

I think you may be right. Didn't Lucas even get crap for making Lando "Untrustworthy"?

Oh yeah there was backlash about Lando when he first came out over that.  Also certain folks thought it was racist when Lando was not shown on the original theatre poster.  Of course neither was Yoda or Fett but you know where that went.

                             I do think Mace Windu is the bad egg - I can't see it being By-Gone - sorry, Qui-Gon as his voice can be heard shouting 'Anakin, no!' after the Tusken massacre and Jocasta Nu is just TOO obvious...besides, after Jango is beheaded there seems to be some communication between Mace and Dooku and this ties in with the look on Obi-Wan's face in Star Wars when he sees R2 and tells Luke Darth Vader killed Anakin . Unlike Mace Windu Obi-Wan isn't a good liar methinks...

  everything here has opened my eyes to Mace being between the Jedi and Sith. unbelievable observations. i think tho that Anakin will cut him down. remember the look that Anakin gave Mace when he said that he will not be trained in EPI. in all these talks here on this site or anysite, anything is up in the air

Maybe it's a good time to bump this oldie but goodie back up.  As inspiring and convincing as John's theories a couple years ago were, it looks like it ain't gonna happen.  Mace seems to be on the straight and narrow, after all.  I'm almost a little bit bummed, since that would've been an interesting twist.

I think there may be a slight chance he could be right. In the trailer he's so negative about putting a rookie Jedi on the job of Sidious-sitting, because maybe he is afraid that if Palps reveals it to him, he could rat him out. It could also explain Palps cutting up some fools, especialy Master Windu.

Who knows!

I can honestly say that Mace Windu is very much a bad egg.  His character came across as an ass almost to the point that you can almost see why Anakin did what he did :-\

Yeah, I almost wish Sam Jackson wasn't even in the movie.  I never cared for his character.  Mace blew big time.

Indeed. He came off as really really mean. I was in love the second Palpidious screamed "POWER!!! ABSOLUTE POWER!" (or whatnot) and sent him sailing.

That's hot.

I guess I'm in the minority here I like Mace and what he did.  

In the book he doesn't come of as being Anakin's antagonizer but a bad ass.  I don't think he was working for the Sith at all.

In the book Mace uses Vaapad to own Palpatine.  He basically channels himself in it to own Palpatine.

The book gives a different description of the Yoda vs Emperor match.  The movies doesn't convey the thought of Yoda at all.  The big one for me is when Yoda realizes for the past thousand years since the last fight with the Sith that the training for the Jedi is all wrong.  He realizes that the way there training the Jedi is good for fighting the Stih a thousand years ago but not now.  The Sith have changed and adapted to other ways to use the Force preparing for this moment.  

I see Mace as the only one who's wasn't clouded and thus the discovery of Vaapad.  He was the only Jedi to evolve and prepare for this day.  You may wonder why he didn't share his knowledge with the Jedi.  It was to dangerous.  He shared it with Sora, and Sora wasn't able to channel it properly an turned to the dark side.
