Did Palpatine know Anakin would tell Mace Windu who he really was?

It's unclear, since in the novelisation we only have the scene from Anakin's perspective; however, it's likely that in this, as in most things, Palpatine was playing what TV Tropes calls a Xanatos ...

Why would Windu say the Senate would decide the fate of Palpatine?

Quite simply, Mace believes in the rule of law. He does not think that the Jedi should unilaterally act against the Chancellor. We can see this trait in a few of his other defining moments. When ...

Did Palpatine know Anakin would tell Mace Windu who he really was?

Not for certain Palpatine knew it was one of Anakin's options, but he didn't know which course of action Anakin would take in the end. From the movie transcript: PALPATINE: Are you going to kill me? ...

Why did Mace Windu kill Jango Fett?

The Jedi have no qualms about killing people in combat. What's not "the Jedi way" is to kill someone who is no longer a threat. Dooku had been defeated and was no longer a threat when Anakin executed ...

Did anyone on Coruscant see/film the duel between Mace Windu and Chancellor Palpatine?

I'm not aware of any source which indicates that anyone filmed the duel. The canon novel Tarkin does indicate that it is public knowledge that a duel took place, so it's possible that someone directly ...

Did Mace Windu succumb to the dark side?

No. This is in-line with Windu's personality. Windu tried very hard to bring a swift end to the war. He felt that by failing to do so, the Jedi were failing the people of the Republic who they were ...

Why did Mace Windu kill Jango Fett?

Did Mace Windu use the Force to command the reek to attack Jango Fett?

All signs point to no. Mace was unable to control the reek when it attacked him and was otherwise occupied a few seconds later. The reek followed Mace, and he had to slash wildly to fend it off. He ...

Did anyone on Coruscant see/film the duel between Mace Windu and Chancellor Palpatine?

No. A lightsaber rumored to be Windu's was found, but the owner did not know of any means, video proof or otherwise, to verify that it was his In the Legends book The Last of the Jedi: A Tangled Web, ...

Why did the Jedi think that killing Count Dooku and General Grievous would end the war?

The Jedi don't decide when the war is or isn't over, they're just servants of the Republic. The Senate decides when the war is over, and Palpatine makes it clear that they would consider the death of ...

Why didn't Mace Windu think Anakin could handle being near Palpatine?

Windu is not just doubting Anakin, but Palpatine too. Both Yoda and Windu and the majority of the Jedi Council were against of training Anakin from the very beginning. He was too old to be taken in ...

Why didn't Mace go with Yoda to stop Dooku from escaping?

The film's official novelisation mentions not once, but twice that Mace is utterly exhausted from his fight with the droids. In addition to needing someone else to coordinate the troops, I think we ...

Why didn't Mace go with Yoda to stop Dooku from escaping?

I doubt this game is canon anymore, but I'm sure at one time it was. Anyway, in Star Wars: The Clone Wars you got to play as Mace Windu pursuing some other objectives while the whole Yoda/Anakin/Obi-...

Why didn't Mace Windu think Anakin could handle being near Palpatine?

Throughout Anakin's time as a Jedi he and Palpatine had formed a close friendship, close enough that Anakin had told the Chancellor about the circumstances of his mother's death and his subsequent ...

Why did the Jedi think that killing Count Dooku and General Grievous would end the war?

The Jedi Order was in the dark and they were blindsided by their own arrogance. They knew there was at least one Sith, Dark Maul, running around; they did not know if it was a master or an apprentice....

Why didn't Mace go with Yoda to stop Dooku from escaping?

    Beside having limited Jedi forces with him (Windu was exausted as mentioned in earlier answers, many Jedi were dead) Yoda was not sure of Dooku's intentions. Only when he ...

Why did Mace Windu kill Jango Fett?

As we see in Revenge of the Sith, Windu is fine with killing people if they potentially pose a threat. Mace Windu: He's too dangerous to be left alive! As Fett was an active combatant, it's no ...
