Actually death start is an incredibly humane mass destruction weapon compared to what Siths were up to back in old republic days. Remember Telos IV?


I'm also really fucking mad they didn't go all out on Malachor V and refused to link TOR-era with the original starwars. COWARDS.

Nah: Some magical sith stick used years ago to win one battle.
Yeah: MASS SHADOW GENERATOR deployed by REPUBLIC in order to bury literally everyone and their moms and create a wound in the force and leave planet to be a losely connected set of parts and compromising the Force almost to the point of ending it.

That was like, fucked up the plannet into some kind of gravitational bogaloo and literally pulled every ship in orbit down with extreme force and then almost everyone died.

If you give me a choice between THAT and death by deathstar, I'd say fuck yeah, beam me up, Scotty.

Remember that the destruction of Alderan merely upset the Jedi while Meetra Surik (who gave the order to bomb Malachor V btw) had to be cut off from the force because she literally felt all the suffering and couldn't handle it.

@Deiru I know just enough about Star Wars to know this whole thread would really upset a certain friend of mine lol.

@emsenn I'm too invested in Old Republic to really care about anything related to movie canon, tbh.

@Deiru That seems like a much more feasible position than the constant headcanon revision that most well-invested fans have to do.

@emsenn I mean to me TOR is fascinating because it's the realest Star Wars as setting can get. There's little to revise there or speculate about and it's very relatable. I mean it's very indicative that KOTOR2 spends a lot of time trying to show that constant wars between jedi and sith do NOTHING for everyone else in the galaxy and that was the realest moment I felt in star wars.

@emsenn But I guess a lot of it is thanks to Lucas deciding that it happened a long time to a long time ago.
