Luke was a wuss compared to the Jedi in their heyday. Plus he threw his lightsaber away before the Emperor shot him, so it's not like he could have done much of anything to block. Edit: Plus I wouldn't be so ready to rescue a friend who went bad and became a childkiller, I think Obi-Wan gave Anakin all the "friendliness" he could have by not cutting his head off and ending it right there
Yoda blocks Dooku's force lightning and dispels it in ep. 2. koji

Another terrific plot idea from Lucas, the implied scene at the Jedi Temple koji

I went and saw the movie again, and it was definitely much better the first time, maybe it was just the lack of sleep and the fact that I was pretty excited to finally see the movie I've waiting a long time for. Some of my friends said that it ruined Star Wars for them, but I've got a good imagination and since the second viewing I have prety much completely replaced that piece with my own vision of how it should have went. Maybe I'm kinda weird or maybe I've just been reading too many star wars books, I don't even know.

Huh? What implication was this? What did I miss?

And why is it that while Obi-Wan and Yoda are at the Jedi Temple reviewing the carnage - at the same time as Palpatine is addressing the Senate, they suddenly start referring to Chancellor Palpatine as the Emperor? What do they have a radio on in the background or something? How else would they know he's claimed the new title if both scenes are happening at the same time????? Plus - was it in Jimmy Smits contract that he got to have a cool car? What was that, like a Chrysler convertible landspeeder?

I think it was the Ford Thunderbird, Coruscant edition.

The hot rod speeder car driven by Sen. Bail Organa (Jimmy Smits) is based on the front of a Tucker that is parked at Skywalker Ranch.

Yoda was also 800 years old and was one of the most powerful Jedi in existence. Obi-Wan and Mace had to use their lightsabers to block.

Well, given that there were basically no other Jedi left besides Luke and Yoda, and Luke was holding his own against Vader, I'd say Luke had become "one of the most powerful Jedi in existence".

That's cool, too bad no one taught him how to absorb Force Lightning with his bare palms. He probably didn't have enough MIDICHLORIANS HLHRUHLGUHHGLUHG. Hell even his daddy got blasted by Dooku. Much to learn, he still had. Edit: More like Revenge of the Nerds am i rite

Luke was holding his own against a parapalegic Anakin in a black suit. koji

I think saying that it ruined Star Wars for them is like saying that Yanni's album ruined Muzak for them. Really, is Star Wars that great in terms of film? What makes it different from Star Trek or any other of that space stuff? Keep in mind that I don't really know much about sci-fi...

ah, you are swinging bats at a hornet's nest there. i can't speak for the rest of the star wars geeks, but for me personally, my fanhood increased tenfold when i saw joseph campbell reference the film(s) in The Power of Myth. the original trilogy contains all the key elements of the archetypal hero's journey. it was less concerned with the topics of the day, or with being whiz-bang with the special effects (although they helped), or gratuitous pandering to prurient interest, and more concerned with telling a story which already lived in the collective unconscious yet had never been told in quite that way before.

There are many implied scenes or events that are revealed through expository speeches in Star Wars I, II, and III. I am convinced that Lucas was trying to tell his story using only stagecraft that existed in Shakespearean times, and poorly rendered CGI. Wierd and sad...
