    sorry mate, should have been a bit clearer. I've amended it now, just the star wars movies but any of them.

    For me, either of these two quotations, both from Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back, express the essence of Jedi succinctly:

    "A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind."

    "A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack."

    i like nearly all of what yoda say's, but some one over the years has dubbed that in.
    think about it.
    you have a knight who studies the force and has a sabre for hand to hand combat.
    meeting other sith that have been corrupted from the jedi order.
    They know how to use the force and a sabre.

    do you think it feasible to not use your own knowledge to combat them?
    "never for attack" is just plane wrong.

    Even yoda in the prequels literally uses the force to knock out palatines guards.
    fight palpatine, the person he went specifically to attack.
    luke uses the force to attack palpatine and vader.
    as does mace-windu.
    obi-wan does against doku as does anakin(but i guess he doesn't count lol)

    it was a bad overdub that I'm afraid.

    I see Yoda's confrontation with Emperor as a defensive act on behalf of the survival of the Jedi, the Republic, protecting them from the evil takeover of the Sith.

    It's not that Yoda woke up cranky that day and decided, just for fun, to go and pick a fight with Palpatine. Yoda had to try and stop the fall of the Jedi and the Republic, and, sensing he had failed, he placed himself in exile.

    I see the "never for attack" statement as the paradigm all Jedi should abide by, whenever possible, lest they make that a habit and go they way of Sith.

    But these were extraordinary times, and the Jedi and the Republic were very clearly being annihilated.

    The surviving Jedi had to act, if there were to be any hope of defending against the return of the Sith.

    The same goes for Luke: he did not sacrifice himself and his lightsaber to Vader to pick a fight with the Emperor. Luke went there to redeem his father.

    Forced into a corner, physically and mentally, and made to watch, as Yoda had witnessed a generation ago, the light of the good giving way to the darkness, Luke had to do something. He had to defend against the annihilation and move against Palpatine.

    Mace Windu only acts against the Chancellor once it has been fully established the Chancellor is no longer operating in a democractic mode, is a Sith, and has annihilated the Jedi who accompanied Mace Windu to arrest the Chancellor. I cover this more completely in another thread:
    The same goes for Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker with respect to Count Dooku: Dooku first captures Kenobi and then sentenced him, along with Anakin and Padme (also captured in Attack of the Clones) to be terminated.

    The Dark Side users, making the first and many subsequent dangerous moves against the Jedi and/or the Republic are the clear attackers, and the Jedi are required to respond in each of these instances.

    I'm really not sure it's a good excuse. Ultimately Yoda failed and some 20 years later he tells Luke never to use the Force for attack.

    Based on the experience in RotS?

    Where is the problem? Roofoo ("Dr. Evazan") threatened to kill Luke, Obi-Wan offered a free drink, Luke was thrown into a corner, a blaster aiming at Kenobi was drawn, to which Kenobi reacted in a pure act of defense.

    However, since Roofoo had the death sentence in 12 systems and fell down during the short fight, I wouldn't exclude the possibility that Kenobi carried out the execution, too. ;)

    .. and imo, therefore Luke was the most Jedi like Jedi ever, especially if we reconsider his last heroic act.
    Think of EPVIII what you want, aber Luke's force return on Crait, was the ultimate pacifistic Jedi way, to buy his fellows some time to escape. Together with the score of JW ("The Spark") it is one of my most beloved scenes in a SW movie.
    That is how Hope goes.

    This what I thought of the Jedi during the prequels: "Anakin, if one is to understand the great mystery, one must study all its aspects, not just the dogmatic, narrow view of the Jedi."- Palpatine, Revenge of the Sith.

    This what I would have liked the Jedi to be: "For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the Dark Times. Before the Empire."- Obi-Wan Kenobi, A New Hope.
