Line 17: Line 17:
 
In short, while Mace Windu may have been the ideal Jedi to fight [[Palpatine|Emperor Palpatine]], he was the worst possible Jedi to keep Anakin from making the wrong decision. Windu's strict and uncharismatic character, who seems so arbitrary and unimportant in the first two movies, turns out to be a remarkably important character to the fate of the galaxy. And while some disliked the character for his cold and aloof manner, it was precisely those qualities which made him so crucial to Anakin's fall. And to make a bad situation worse, Windu had been planning to forcibly remove Palpatine from power even before he had learned that Palpatine was a [[Sith|Sith Lord]]: a fact that undoubtedly influenced Anakin when Palpatine accused Windu of being a traitor.
