    Default Anakin Skywalker's descent to the Dark Side

    O.K. We all know that he becomes darth vader. But how?

    I'm Looking for examples of this For example, Him using Force Choke in the last episode of Clone Wars was a prime example.

    that was just done poorly. he went from happy happy joy joy to mass murdering an entire people and Pademe's response? That it is human to wipe out an entire clan of people.

    They should have saved it for the third movie.

    That was so great. I have been waiting for them to do something like that with him on that show.

    Ok, maybe I need to watch some Clone Wars again! If Anakin is starting to go evil! *crosses fingers and hopes Ashoka disappears!*

    My only issue with this series is the errors it has created within the Star Wars continuity.

    I never really read any Clone Wars-era books, just post-OT material and maybe one pre-PT era book. It doesn't really bother me any

    Good for you! I guess, I think I should of never read the books. I'm annoyed George Lucas decided to make the books and comics canon.

    It's a calculated risk to be sure.... It's been well-known in Star Wars fandom ever since the first publication of the original Thrawn trilogy that George Lucas canon will always trump anything else. As long as he's still around and in charge of the franchise writing stuff in areas he's talked about working on is dangerous territory.

    I'd be more interested in learning about palpatine's journey down to the dark side.

    That would have to be a very dark road to travel on.

    Are there? I thought it was one of those things that's been deliberately left mysterious.... I think I like it better that way, anyway.

    Well, Don't you think that they have been acting more like warriors rather than peacekeepers? that alone has to be a path to the darkside.

    Anakin is also insubordinate and he is too attached to things like R2, remember how he was obsessed with finding it? I don't think it was because of the sensitive information that the droid had.

    I really hope we get to see more questionable actions by Anakin as this show continues.

    I think that's a given....or at least I'm hoping!

    Also: it bugs the crap out of me that the thread title is "decent". It's descent

    ok, so I'm not the biggest Star Wars Fan... but I always wondered how Anakin was born without having a father.

    The 3rd movie alludes to the emperor having used his powers to create life.
