    No. The essence transference would likely have happened long before the events of RotJ even if he didn't feel like his life was truly in any danger.

    That's why it would have been a "failsafe" and contingency.

    You plan for the future even if that future never comes to pass.

    Palps survived Anakin, Palps survived Luke, Palps survived Solo, Yoda and Kenobi.

    Well, yeah, for some people, clones ( bad idea ) or not, it's a strange choice for a story which was supposed to talk about heroes defeating the big evil.

    It all seems so desperate bringing him back. The last episode really killed off too many storylines so they are having to scramble around to make something up. It’s going to be an utter disappointment if he suddenly pops up after so definitively being killed off.

    But obviously the story wasn't over yet.

    It's OK but it's no need to celevrate at the end of VI because the winners are going to die and the evil is still there.

    Our heroes were just showing off and our force ghosts friends didn't warn Luke or anyone else saying : Heu guys, it's not over yet. Get your trumpet back in your pack.

    Most stories are about heroes TRYING to defeat the big evil. The fact that evil may survive in some form (see Sauron or Voldemort), doesn't make the protagonist less of a hero...

    In any case, it has been 36 years since ROTJ, I bet that even George Lucas himself looking back would have made some things here and there different. I dont think that Palpatine surviving makes Vader's sacrifice pointless...

    Sauron survived the Lords of the Rings with the same power ?

    Voldemort survived Harry Potter ?

    Tell me more. I'm not a specialist of these stories.

    Plagueis needed to be the main vilian of the ST. doesn't undo the OT and is perfectly set-up by previous clues in the saga. Snoke was interesting and demonstrated more powerful force powers than we'd seen before, but now it seems like he's gone for good. He was even described as being much more powerful than the Emperor, so what gives? just bring him back under his 'true' identity. Seems like they are indeed scrambling around to tie things together but having Palpatine being the vilian again is just messy, IMO. Lucas said his original idea for the ST would be an even greater vilian pulling the strings all along (Plagueis?) so it's dissapointing they scrapped his outline for something less cohesive.
