Jedi vs Non-Jedi – Ep140


In any Star Wars role-playing game, Jedi can take over. Is it fair to allow one aspect of the beloved setting dominate so much?

    I have to agree on something about the way Jedi were shown in the old movies vs the new ones: The mystique changed. I liked the idea of a rare (to the point of singular) Jedi where a secret mystical order long forgotten existed in a modern cold universe. They were not overpowered, and dicipline was part of their way. There was an intensity of a samauri standoff just before battles that made it feel real. Luke and Vader’s fights felt closer to reality then the crazy crap in the later movies.

    For me, once there were dozens (and dozens) of Jedi everywhere it totally killed that mystique for me. Following it with constant crazy flipping and totally out there battles where people are dancing on the head of a pin, and I just lost the cool factor. I thought Yoda was far cooler as the old man with wisdom and telekenetic strength then watching him hop and flip and fly around. I know several people liked that scene, but for me it made him less mysterious and thus less cool.

    It is sexier to conceal then reveal.

    For me, I see them as Knights Templar Diplomats. Keepers of the peace, possibly by force. My picture would be like sending in an Diplomat with Navy Seal Commando training.
