    The payout for Anakin building C-3PO came in The Empire Strikes Back. Darth Vader stopped Boba Fett from blasting Chewbacca because he was carrying C-3PO on his back. I thought everyone knew that 🙂

      I’m sure a lot of people were not observant enough to pick up on that themselves. It’s a pretty small detail that requires you to connect the dots on your own. They don’t spell it out or direct your attention to it at all. Most people probably just took that as a random scene where Vader was just trying to stop Boba from unnecessary “disintegrations.” They are all effectively bait for Luke to show up so killing them would be counter-productive to Vader/Emperor’s plans of luring in Luke (using them as bait to play with his emotions, they are cared for friends after all) and turning him to the dark side. It probably was originally written/intended this way and it only became a significant detail after the prequels established the 3P0/Anakin connection… or it could all just be random nerd overanalyzation, which is a classic move seen throughout the history of Geekdom and Nerdom, lol.

        The nerdiest of the nerds would say “George Lucas planned it all along. He knew when he made Empire that Vader built C-3PO.” People have said that to me and I just roll my eyes.

        The truth is it’s just a random thing. For whatever reason, the film makers had Vader stop Bob a Fett from blasting Chewie. And it was always a wtf moment for the fans why Vader would even care if Chewie was blasted. So George in his infinite wisdom (sarcasm) in Ep 1 Anakin built C-3PO so it turns out that Vader was really saving 3PO not Chewie.

        That’s one of the biggest problems with the prequels–George just had to explain EVERYTHING, even little moments like that. He also made the Galaxy seem small by conviently having the same characters pop up. 3PO built by Anakin…what a coincidence. Bob Fett involved in the Clone Wars…what a coincidence. Chewbacca friends with Yoda…what a coincidence. I know George wanted to pay fan service by using fan favorite characters but there needs to be a limit

      That’s pretty cool. I’ll keep an eye out for that next time. Whether or not it’s intended, it’s canon now, so we’re allowed to overanalyze everything.

      As for this game, the animations look pretty awesome! But I can see it getting boring after you’ve seen all the different combinations. I found the PC version online on abandonware sites.

        I think it would have been funny if when Vader stopped Boba Fett from blasting Chewie/C-3P0 George Lucas added in him yelling NOOOO like in EP 3.

        In fact, George should have him yelling NOOO once in every movie. In a New Hope Han Solo blasts Vader’ s ship “NOOOO!”

    In france darth vador is actually named dark vador

    Pretty sweet game, actually. But I’m still waiting for Rebel Assault 1 and 2 (both are nice games and the sequel is actually even better) and X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter.

  • December 14, 2015 at 6:59 am

    The animations are fuckin’ sweet.

    Obi-Wan was a knight, the actor who played him was a knight, and he doesn’t get to be in the fucking chess game?!

    Wow that game was surprisingly violent, but pretty awesome lol

  • December 14, 2015 at 8:51 am

    Omg! Those animations are so incredible!

    Huh …. Super Star Wars soundtrack… I was thinking “this music is used in this game as WELL?? :O ” .. XD

    I *suppose* having Anakin create C-3P0 was an excuse for him to hang out with him and Padme all the time in the rest of the films, instead of him being just another disposable droid who’d get replaced like the various iPhones. 😉

    I remember my kid challenging me to playing this. I hadn’t played chess in 20 years. I wiped him out in 20 moves. He never touched the game again. I do remember the graphics were kinda cool.

    The animations remind me of the old “Droids” cartoons…

  • December 14, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    This was really entertaining!

    You should play Jar Jar Binks Bingo or Jabba’s Farts Unleashed.

    This game looks fun. Since I don’t have a Sega CD, I guess a ROM is the next best thing.

    The animation at 08:05, with Chewie vs. Boba Fett, is hilarious.

    This is about as close as it gets to James Earl Jones talking about peanut butter:

  • December 14, 2015 at 10:38 pm

    Wow. Chewy doesnt fuck around!

    Have you guys tried the new multiplayer battlefront star wars on xbox one? The graphics all most look like your watching the movies.

    Holy crap! Yoda makes a guy kill himself! That’s pretty fucking dark. I mean Darth Vader can force choke a bitch, but I don’t think even he would force a guy to kill himself.

  • January 12, 2016 at 5:41 pm

    It doesn’t look like my last post went up, allow me to at least say this. Look even at the old crappy technology of the “Star Trek” universe, in that horrible re-make the Romulan’s are using a Phaser Drill to destroy planet Vulcan, how long was that supposed to take? Either way, it destroys the whole planet…
