And then of course, Yoda. He shouldn’t have had any light sabre at all. But, despite all his wisdom and knowledge, Yoda eventually has to take out a tiny baby-sized light sabre and fight a guy three times as tall as he is who has a much bigger light sabre. My problem with this is that Yoda has a handicap based on his physical limitations, when his character should be above that sort of thing. Yes, I know they tried to do more advanced things first, like throw rocks at each other, but even in other instances Yoda has to make up for his size when using a light sabre. One time he throws a light sabre at a dude because he can’t reach him. He’s gotta jump all the time… it must be tiring. ’Size matters not’ - oh I’m sorry Yoda, it does. It does if you use a light sabre. All your wise sayings have been ruined in the prequels, I’m so sorry. 

So in this scene, he flips around the cave and bounces off the walls because he so small that he can’t reach Dooku. My question is, if Yoda can do this, and they’re basically pretty well matched as far as their use of the force goes, then why wasn’t Dooku also flipping off the ceiling too? Or what if Dooku just happened to be a 19-foot Gorgon with a 12-foot long light sabre? Yoda would get squished like a bug. My point is, if you can match your opponent’s skills with the force, you’d then better also be physically strong too. And this goes against everything that the force is about. 

You see, Yoda was so magical and interesting because you didn’t expect this little tiny creature to be a Jedi master. We all had a preconception that a great warrior would be someone physically strong and intimidating. By making Yoda a little guy, they were illustrating that the force is something beyond the physical. But by showing Yoda fight with the light sabre, it ruins all that, because it takes that concept and those rules and throws it in the dumpster. Right next to Bambi. You see, I’m not even sure if Lucas actually understands Star Wars, or anything that happened in The Empire Strikes Back… 

I don’t know if he understood what made Yoda magical, and how making Yoda fight contradicts the entire mythology of the movie.

NASA discovers a world orbiting two stars.

The existence of a world with a double sunset, as portrayed in the film Star Wars more than 30 years ago, is now scientific fact. NASA’s Kepler mission has made the first unambiguous detection of a circumbinary planet — a planet orbiting two stars — 200 light-years from Earth. 

Unlike Star Wars’ Tatooine, the planet is cold, gaseous and not thought to harbor life, but its discovery demonstrates the diversity of planets in our galaxy. Previous research has hinted at the existence of circumbinary planets, but clear confirmation proved elusive. Kepler detected such a planet, known as Kepler-16b, by observing transits, where the brightness of a parent star dims from the planet crossing in front of it.
