There are a couple of reasons why Darth Sidious didn't execute order 66 at the First Battle of Geonosis: He was waiting for all the Jedi to be in different places. That way they wouldn't have time to gather quickly and coordinate any counter-action. He sent all the Jedi to different places where warfare was already underway so they could be killed more ...

At the time of the Battle of Geonosis, the Jedi were revered as peacekeepers in the Republic. If Sidious had ordered the deaths of all the Jedi on Geonosis, he would have revealed himself as an enemy of the beloved Jedi who murdered them in an act of open treachery. His public image would have been terrible. Yes, he'd have control of both the clone army and ...

It seems likely that after ten years and after becoming senator she chose another double after Sabé (and with the Nabooans' heavy make-up the double doesn't necessarily need to look much like Padmé anyway ;-)). While the English Wikipedia article doesn't give much information on this, its German version says that it was a double named Cordé, which IMDb ...

He's definitely the bad guy — but even if it's a great character (played by a great actor), don't forget that: He doesn't get too much screen time. There's an important plot twist revealing his "dark" nature. So, basically, they didn't want to spoil the movie ;-) Fett, on the contrary, is far more known and recognizable.

According to novelization of Episode II by R.A. Salvatore, it was her bodyguard Cordé "Cordé," she said quietly, her voice breaking. Cordé was one of her beloved bodyguards, a woman who had been with her, serving her and serving Naboo, for many years. Padmé gathered Cord up in her arms, hugging her gently. ... Captain Typho came up out of his ready ...

Situations and priorities change. Dooku was about to escape, and Obi-Wan and Anakin were the nearest Jedi. Padme was relatively safe, away from the battle, and had clone troopers nearby. Even if the fall had hurt Padme, Anakin would not have been much help as he wasn't a healer.

I think the answer to this is obvious: they needed the man there at the wedding so that he could actually perform the wedding ceremony. They could do it all themselves, but it wouldn't have been legally-binding unless done by someone with the correct authority. We don't know how weddings work in the galaxy far, far away, but it's safe to assume they work ...

Yes they are breaking Jedi rules but no others. If you want to get married (even in secret) then someone has to make it official or "proper" be it a priest, other religious official or someone with the legal authority to do so. In this case, the ceremony was officiated by a Pontifex of the Brotherhood of Cognizance named Maxiron Agolerga who ...

Sometime during his life, Jinn began discovering the secrets to manifesting his consciousness after death. He traveled to a planet strong with the Force, a world that legend said was the birthplace of life and the origin of midi-chlorians. He learned from five ...

If you remember from the beginning, mace windu said we are keepers of the peace not security. This was in response to palpatine asking for protection for padme. Reluctantly the council sent Anakin and obi wan. Also.. remember padme was being hunted in the first place so she couldn't vote on the military expansion by palpatine. So... At the end when she ...
