    This is what interests some fans "What if"...Some member asked what if Luke and Leia were swopped...what would happen? I'm building a story (I'll try to continue it) what if Anakin won the duel on Mustafar. Now I'm making the question what if Obi-Wan killed Anakin on the spot! On Mustafar...some think oh that would have solved everything! I don't think so...The Empire would still have existed and Obi-Wan and Yoda would still go into exile or they would do a re-match maybe, Obi-Wan and Yoda vs. The Emperor...who knows?

    well one thing is for sure.... and that would be that the empire would be a little weaker without Vader's rule....

    Vader was already pretty weak, They made a legend out of him...I read a story once, which I thought was well written. Vader goes after a nest of Jedi, he is lured there because he thinks obi-wan is there and he is out for revenge. Not even 10 Jedi are there and Vader wouldn't have survived if the stormtroopers didn't show up. But later Palpatine spreads the words based on this event that Vader killed 50 Jedi on his own to use it as fear of what he is capable of. No doubt he is still strong, but not as strong as before.

    to replace him with Luke...the question is, who would palpatine replace Vader with if he died on Mustafar, certainly not with Luke yet, cause he was just a baby...lol

    i believe i have heard this kind of discussion somewhere before.. and i believe anakin was invlved then to...:p but i think it would have been a more messy saga, as the emperor had to find ANOTHER apprentice, and everything would have been delayed, and george lucas would be having to write perhaps a whole new film to save himself from great deals of troubles.... i think the starwars saga is better left as it is...:D

    No doubt about that, star wars is afteral about the life of Anakin Skywalker. But we're not talking about that now. It's always interesting to deal the what if scenario's..Like I said, I was making one. But indeed it would be hard for the emperor to find another apprentice, so that would have weakened the Sith, but I doubt it would weaken the Empire much.

    If anakin was killed by obi-wan then the there would have been no one to kill the emperor later on. They said in the movies that anakin was destined to bring balance back to the force and he did he was a very important part of bringing balance back first by helping wipe out the jedi's and then later on by killing the emperor so that Luke could start the jedi's all over again from scratch. The best way to bring balance to a broken system is to just start over from scratch.

    As for who would have replaced vader well i think it woudl have been jourus C boath or how ever you spell his name he was the jedi that was left on Wayland to gaurd the emperor's cloning facilities and other special wepaons and things of that nature.

    I reckon he wouldn't have. Wasn't he insane? Or was it his clone? I can't remember.

    Well yeah Joruus C'baoth (clone of Jorus C'baoth) wasn't very sane indeed and I think that he wouldn't coöperate with Palpatine easily although he created him. He wanted to rule himself so he wouldn't be as obedient as Vader would be.

    Actually he said more than once in those books that he did not really care to rule any planets since he did not think that was true power, but you are right the clone was pretty insane. Also in the same series they speak of Yoda battling a dark jedi on degoboh or however you spell that planets name this would lead me to believe that vader was not the only person out there whom the Emperor could have made his right hand. Who knows maybe he would have made Mara Jade his right hand if Vader had died, granted he would have had to wait a bit since i dont think she is any older than Luke in the books.

    But we're talking about heavy EU here, when I created the "if Anakin won the duel on Mustafar" theory I kept it canon, although of course it isn't, but at least all the characters were kept from the movies itself and the points in the story were based also what happened in the movies, not outside.

    OK well then i dont know what woudl happen in my opinion the movies are very very limited and crappy with what they actually tell you about the Universe and whats out there. After watching the movies you only know a very very small part of whats happening since the are centered around only a few key characters. Simply i dont think the movies give you enough information to really guess at what would happen.

    Actually, Mara Jade was in the movies for she was said to be in Jabba's palace as a dancer during the time Luke went there to rescue Han.

    Yeah I know, I actually have an autographed picture of Mara Jade. Doesn't mean she was there, cause it's 'fake'. She was 'inserted', the part was never cast as "Mara Jade", was just an extra. Thus, EU. If you see Mara Jade in the cast list, you let me know ok? lol
