More quotes from Star Wars

I just finished watching Star Wars episodes 2 through 6.  I really liked 3PO and R2-D2 in all episodes.  In Bicentennial Man, the robot Andrew is told that unlike humans he doesn’t have time constraints.  Being a machine, he has infinite time to accomplish whatever he wants to.  I could see that so clearly in Star Wars.  By the time the whole war is over, several Jedis are dead.  But 3PO and R2-D2 keep helping in the war.  It’s pretty much like the droids are the core of the movie: no episode without them.

3PO being funny and lame is quite likeable too.  I have only one quote of 3PO’s in the list, but I liked several of his dialogues.  Not quotable though, since they don’t make much sense without the context.

(Spoiler alert!)  Another nice touch was not forgetting the original prophecy when the movie ends.  Anakin is the one who’s supposed to end the war, but he turns to the dark side.  Obi-Wan is shocked, but Yoda with his wisdom stays calm.  Eventually it’s Anakin who ends the war and brings peace to the galaxy.
