    It was a war innocents died. Is just not something TCW would show a lot of.
    Palpatine controlled both sides in the war but for the most part it was a real war. All the day to day stuff was handled by generals on both sides who saw it as a real war.

    It was a puppet war, but it was still real. Everyone knew it was a war, everyone was involved… It just wasnt real for palpatine. He was pretty much playing chess with himself. He used his war to get his way and ended it as quickly as possible once he got it.

    Since this war doesnt have someone holding an off-switch, who knows how long it could have lasted.

    As long as Palpatine needed but I’m sure it was also a risk. He can’t control everything and if it had lasted too long it could have ended naturally outside of his control.

    Or he was just impatient and couldn’t wait for his new Empire 😆

    Well our World Wars lasted longer! This is a galaxy-wide war… 3 years is awefully short.

    It’s a galaxy-wide war that’s been planned. He planned what would happen, all the necessary pivotal moments, which is why it didn’t last too long. Nothing “new” came up a lot. He wouldn’t stretch it out pointlessly.

    Besides if it lasted to long, someone probably would’ve caught Palpatine.

    I was trying to say the Empire/Rebel war could still be happening with that one.

    Personally I wish they change the name. It wasn’t two factions having different ideals (change the name of the Clone Wars then), it was always a Rebellion against an oppressive Empire.

    I think the Clone War just caught on as the name.

    I just call the GCW the Rebellion instead. It just sounds better.

    You call the Galactic Civil War the Rebellion?

    Yes, and the Rebellion (as in the team) is called the Alliance. I dislike the GCW name, so I just say “during the war of the Rebellion…”

    I think its just as much a civil war as any.

    Beatle, that made me laugh. You contradicted yourself. 😛

    It was totally a civil war, two groups fighting over the same thing: control.

    Hardly, the Rebels weren’t trying to control the galaxy like Palpatine, they wanted to restore peace.

    That is control… from a certain point of view 😉

    But it doesnt make it not a civil war. It split the galaxy into factions, one the original power, the other a rise against that power.

    They should really have two This is Madness’ a year. One TIM for TCW characters and another for movie characters because for people who haven’t seen TCW there votes will go directly towards movie characters, especially from the originals.

    Eh, I still predict the brackets exactly right. 😛

    Some people just pick movie characters simply because there from the movies and they’re labeled Star Warsy. But to have a poll of just TCW characters, so every TCW character can have a fair vote, would be pretty neat.

    Nah, it’s a popularity contest. There’s people who aren’t even legitiment Star Wars fans that vote.

    They should put Yoda and Vader together as a match because they always seem to rule out any other opponent, if you put those two together then you have an even match on your hands, even if it is popularity wise.
