I read this a while ago and agreed, and decided I would come back to it when I had a witty retort to add to it, because it needs to be acknowledged that 'YES' Vader was very whiny as a Jedi.. I just never came up with anything... but yeah. Episodes 1 - 3 were very weak sauce in a lot of shit.. most of all the representation of what should have been an epic character...
Yeah I think if the script had some balls attached to it at all it would have not been such a let down. I really disliked Episode 2 the most of all.
Vader : What of Padme? Emperor : She is no more my apprentice. Vader : But Master I wanted to save her.... Emperor : Yes you did, but aren't we pass that now? Vader : Yes Master what is your bidding? Emperor : Prepare there is much to do.
With that it would have shown Vader crumbling under the weight of the Emperor, rather than a scream of Nooooooo that we got at the end of 3. Yeah weak sauce all around.
