Okay, my apologies if this is in the wrong category. This is the first time I've started a thread on this site...so I hope I got it right.
I was at work Wednesday night doing inventory and thinking about the Darth Vader hardcover book that came out recently. I think the Emperor was disappointed his little experiment with the whole Anakin thing didn't work out like he planned.
Since Anakin was defeated and disarmed (or is that de-feeted?) by Obi-Wan, he was no longer as powerful in the Force as he was prior to the fight. This is why a young pup named Luke was able to defeat him in ROTJ rather easily.
My question is, why didn't the Emperor just take samples of Anakin's DNA to the Kaminoans (or whatever group-Spaarti?) and clone himself a couple more Anakin Skywalkers/Darth Vaders? Anakin wouldn't have been able to do anything to stop the Emperor from even doing so.
It's possible, Palpatine, Joruus C'Boath, and Luuke Skywalker are all clones that still have their Force powers.
Also, I got thinking that with the really bad reaction by Vader...
["...you killed her..."]
...why didn't ol' Darth Anakin just see if any medical droids on Corscant or Naboo had any records, bloodwork, possible DNA stuff of Padme's so he could possibly clone her? Then he'd be with her again.
I'm not saying Vader could have done it right away, immediately after he's put in the helmet, but at some point down the line.
Anyway, this kinda sounds like the makings of an interesting fan-fic story.
