Maybe I’ll put it like this. To be a Star Wars fan, one must possess the ability
to see a million different failures and downfalls, and then somehow assemble
them into a greater picture of perfection. Every true Star Wars fan is a Luke
Skywalker, looking at his twisted, evil father, and somehow seeing good.
