Drama: situation that is highly emotional, turbulent,
Dramatic: striking or effective
How / why Yoda died is irrelevant. Yoda's death WAS highly emotional,
therefore it WAS dramatic and "drama-ridden".
I know what drama means. I have a master's in English. Your
progression is inaccurate. Your use of the term "drama ridden"
suggested that there was an element of high or excessive drama about
it, much the way a young schoolboy's hair might be "lice ridden." A
"drama ridden" scene would be, for example, would be the climactic one
featuring Anakin and Obi-Wan in which Obi-Wan says, "You were supposed
to bring balance to the Force, not leave it in darkness!" That's a
drama ridden scene since so much occurred just prior to that (it's one
long scene, actually). It doesn't follow that, because there's drama
involved, which can be said about almost any scene in SW, that it's
"drama ridden." Dramatic doesn't imply "drama ridden." The manner of
Yoda's death is quite relevant when seen in this light.
As for Shaak Ti, her death is only emotional if you're emotionally
invested in the character. Since we saw almost nothing of her in the
prequels, it's hard to consider her more than an extra. In the novel,
however, it's a different story. She has a much more prominent role
leading up to the events of RotS.
In the RotS movie she was also going to be killed in a more dramatic
scene, but as I said (twice) the scene was cut otherwise it MIGHT have
been the most emotional / dramatic of all.
Yes, I've noticed that you often like to refer to things that aren't
Another pedantic idiot added to killfile ... thank God.
You said you were doing that last time. You can't killfile someone
and still be responding to their posts. Make up your mind already.
I guess you could say that Anybody's loudly proclaiming that he was
killfiling someone _again_ was drama-ridden, right? Of course, Anybody
is quite the drama queen- accusing all others of being dumber than him,
and acting all righteous and injured when called out for being a prick.
I suppose it's a defense mechanism on his part: he feels insecure in
his intelligence, so he has to proclaim everyone else an idiot. Then,
when it looks like he's going to lose an argument AGAIN, he proudly
proclaims "To the killfile with you, sir!".
He may be slightly mentally unbalanced, eh? Or maybe just really
arrogant and dumb at the same time..........
Ah well, it takes all kinds on Usenet. I was just trying to argue my
point, not get into a namecalling match.
