    He killed millions, manipulated Anakin to become his surrogate child, tried to force Luke to kill him, built a superweapon to destroy entire planets and eve had dealings with the Gungan.

    What would it take to make him stop? To take up arms against The Empire if it grew beyond even his evil designs?

    Tossing him down a reactor shaft seemed to do the trick.

    I used to think that, but since 2016 we've had reason to doubt it.

    Yeah, Mitch broke his shoulder falling off a ladder. Palps fell down a reactor shaft and is still coming back.

    Sure, but in the star wars universe you can have your hand amputated then fall thousands of feet down a similar shaft only to land on a man sized trap door which opens up to dump you out into the fucking open sky and catch a flimsy antenna with your weak hand and hold on through the breeze while you meditate so you can mentally contact your sister, who you don't know is your sister, cruising through space so she can come back through the empire and it's minions to catch you dangling from the bottom of a sky palace.

    For all we know palpatine had some form of airbag set up, and that could not have been a reactor shaft. Who puts the reactor shaft and it's exhaust blowing through their office? I know it is under construction and all, but I figured that was a modern empire luxury office which looked down upon other rooms and stuff. How do we know that is a reactor? Maybe they had safety nets or something like china does. You have to figure the working conditions on the death star were probably much like a chinese factory, and they would know to install nets for people committing suicide by jumping down giant open shafts.
