    The biggest thing to remember is that George Lucas based Palpatine's rise to power on that of Adolf Hitler and Julius Caesar's. Not exactly the nicest guys around.

    I'm not an expert on the resistance but I am 100% positive it took a real turn when the Foot burned down April's apartment and Raphael nearly died.

    A big part of Episode 9 is going to be Rey finding some abandoned subway car to live in.

    I can't give you a defense of the empire because i've only seen the story from one side but I'm sure there is justification or at least patriotism for it just like there is patriotism and justification for the US thru all of its crimes and deliberates (not mistakes) just as I'm sure there are germans who would justify nazi germany and japanese would defend the japanese empire when it was running roughshod over china and korea.

    I guess that's what lucas was hinting at when he wrote in the PT crawl that there were heroes on both sides. And what DJ was talking about when he showed how the resistance was buying weapons from the same dealers the first order was.

    The animated movie from 2007(?) was actually pretty good.

    a better question is why ask why? especially at 2 am when clearly no one has anything else better to do

    I don't believe there's any comparison between Jackson and Palpatine. The latter is outright presented as the Star Wars equvilant of the Anti-Christ, so it's hard to actually say this was a man with misunderstood intentions.

    There's not a whole lot of details about the conflicts or organizations so it's easy to negatively interpret the good guys. The Republic/Separatists conflict it's almost openly presented as flawed vs. bad, if not bad vs. bad, despite good individuals being on both sides, while Tatooine seems pretty indifferent to all larger organizations.
    The main reason to interpret the good guys as actually being good is that the bad guys *are* directly presented as being very ruthless.

    The Rebellion started its armed fighting before the Senate was abolished; its Senators were presumably democratically elected, it and its members had decreased but presumably still significant governing power.
