Geektalk: Scarred and Deformed


I always thought the reason the Emperor looked the way he did because he was so old, living for centuries, sustained by the Dark Side of the Force. Then when he looked normal in Phantom Menace, I heard that he got disfigured by the Dark Side of the Force. It was as if he was being consumed by the Dark Side. Then came Revenge of the Sith, where we learned the Emperor basically disfigured himself with his force lightning reflected back on him by Mace Windu. Once his face started getting melted, why didn't the Emperor just stop throwing his lightning? That disappointed me.

yeah. it was a ripoff. i think it was the only way for Lucas to explain how the Emporer could get that way after 20 years.
