I was looking at Wookieepedia and there was an image of the
Stormtroopers talking to Vader on the Death Star and Vader personally
ordering their deaths. The image was from a Comic somewhere, I
personally can't read Comics which is why I rely on the net to fill me
in on those details. From the timeline it is clear that Vader was on
the DS by the time this happened but I just can't see them calling
Lord Vader in another star system just to keep him up-to-date on a
small part of a very large operation.
I did re-read the Stormtrooper's tale (from Tales from the Mos Eisley
Cantina) and it just said that the trooper just ordered their deaths
on a whim. It also seems pretty stupid to kill the only people who
might know who has the droids (their nephew) and to destroy a place he
would most likely have returned to in just a matter of time. But no
one ever accused Stormtroopers of being intelligent or thinking ahead.
They would have no reason to believe (at the time) that Luke had met
an old Jedi that would attempt to take the droids off-planet, so
killing them and destroying the farm was stupid. If Anakin was as
gone as he was supposed to be then Shmi's death would no longer hurt.
If it did then he probably would have ordered the death of every
Tusken on the planet but he never did, it would seem to no longer
matter. I just can't see it.
What are your thoughts?
After seein "New Hope" a zillion times over the past 30 years, I never
thought the troopers' specific mission on Tatooine as being anything more
than retrieving C-3PO and R2D2. "New Hope" is what? Over 20 years after
"Attack of the Clones?" I'm sure the Lars' are barely a blip, priority wise.
Their death was only to fufill the broader mission.
