You're right MetalJedi... they BOTH could be working together on this.

One more thing about my Ki-Adi Mundi theory...he is herded into the center of the arena by Battle Droids during the cease-fire, when Dooku is addressing all the Jedi.  Perhaps he was intentionally spared, as to stay in the highest echelons of the Jedi order?

As for Mace, I have a hard time going along with the theory.  Jocasta Nu, I believe is a possibility, but not Mace.

I don't know about the Ki Adi Mundi theory. He was herded into the survivors along with Plo Koon and Aayla Secura.

I remember my dream now.

Plo and Adi were sent on a mission to destroy the control for the BD, SBD, and DD...if you look on the new Hyperspace it shows that scene roughly cut

I know that.  However, in the theatrical cut, they didn't make the raid at all.  Both Jedi are in the arena from begining to end.  Anyway, I'm sticking by my theory.

I'm pretty sure Mace wasn't "placed in the Jedi Council to cloud the Jedi's vision" or is some kind of "sith plant" onto the council.

Why?

Always two there are, no more, no less.

And in EII, we have exactly two already.  Dooku and Sidious.

The Sith hate threesomes.

Ok, so I'm hearing some say Mace is a bad guy, with lots of good reasons. Others say no because there are already two Sith, no more, no less.

How about this: Mace, seeing the decay of the Republic and the corruption it brings, desperately wants a change. He knows the Jedi Order as a whole will not support the dismantling of the government, no matter how noble or necessary it is, so he takes it upon himself to save the order and the galaxy by aiding in the effort of the separatists, and therefore Dooku & Palpatine, who tell him they only want what he wants, which is order in the galaxy. So he provides the "cloudiness" of the force, the erasing of the databanks, etc.

Now I admit that Mace has to have some aggresiveness/power hunger/dark side in him to do all of this, but it doesn't mean he has to be a Sith, keeping to the two-only rule.

Thoughts?

dRaff, first of all welcome to JediDefender!  Glad to have you here.  Make sure you introduce yourself in the Newbies section.

What you have said are great points about Mace Windu.  I think he's a huge part to the dismantling of the Republic.  I wouldn't doubt it that he had something to do with the deletion of records in the Jedi databanks.

I certainly recall some one, in an interveiw somewhere, that they were looking for another Sith...So, only two there are? Maybe not. Again, my memory is clouded....Must be Mace....

For all you people arguing, "Always TWO there are..." Remember, just because Mace is EVIL doesn't make him a Sith.

He could just be disillusioned with Yoda's leadership. He's a keeper of the peace, yet can barely offer more than good advice when the Republic needs him most. If it weren't for Palpatine creating an army for the Jedi to lead, the Republic could have fallen to the Seperatists. I can see how he would be in league with Palpatine without necessarily realizing he was endangering the entire order. (Especially with his buddy Ki Adi using that mind whammy. ;))

My moneys on Qui-gon.

He was defient of the council and did what he must/thought was right.
He was losing faith in the jedi order, if not he would not have been so difient.
He had access to the library and could have erased the files.
He thought he was investing in security for the future, not intentionally being evil, probably with Palpy's help.
The clones were ordered when he was alive and he died around the same time as the mystrerious Sifo-dyas, the one who ordered the clones.
He'll be in Ep3, perhaps to explain to Obi or Yoda what he'd done.
His mentor was in league with Palapy, perhaps introduced them.
Dooku says to Obi that he wishes that Qui-gon was there with him and that he'd help him, maybe that wasn't a lie.  Maybe he would have helped him.

I'm going to give Mace a break,  Qui-gon's my bad egg!!!!

He can't muck this one up! just kill'em all in a really cool way!
