Okay, the obvious answer that this question will receive is probably "because there is no plot" or it is "bad writing", but can anyone help me understand why Darth Sidious wants the treaty between the Trade Federation & Queen Amidala signed? What would signing a treaty accomplish? How would his plan to oust Valorum and take over as Chancellor be advanced if this happened. Amidala would never have arrived on Coruscant and called for the vote of no confidence...then why is he surprised that Amidala is coordinating a battle against the Trade Federation..."she is more foolish than I thought."....he knew she was going back to take back the planet??? Help me...what is Sidious trying to accomplish with this treaty thing??????
