    So trusting the Force was wrong...

    At best they could've done a million different things. Mace Windu was ready to execute Palpatine in cold blood.

    To me it's just bad writing to make the Jedi this stupid.

    Trusting the Force is correct. It's trusting people that becomes the sticky issue.

    Mace wanting to kill Palpatine makes sense. He is emotional, but the Jedi do one thing with Sith. Kill them. Because if you don't, they get away and make things a lot worse for everyone. Case in point...

    Maul: Survives the Battle of Naboo, turns Mandalore into doodoo.

    Dooku: Yoda decides to save Anakin and Obi-Wan instead of killing Dooku, Dooku continues to lead the Separatists, and turning billions of lives into doodoo.

    Palpatine: Anakin stops his potential death (I personally think he is faking it to get Anakin to kill Mace) and the entire Republic goes to doodoo.

    Anakin: Obi-Wan, showing he really isn't the Sith killer, leaves Vader for dead but does not actually finish him off. Let's forget the millions he killed because he saved his son in the end. So no doodoo! :D

    Yeah, the Force ain't the problem, it's the people. Much like real world religions (speaking as an agnostic, lol).

    None of that excuses all the bad writing and storytelling. They knew the clones were suspicious. They knew Darth Sidious started the Clone Wars. They knew the clones had suspicious chips in their heads, and they just went on business as usual.

    In other words, maxie big da force. Well dat smell stink o' wiff.
