Default Why didn't Mace Windu just kill Palpatine

This has really bothered me. He took time to explain, blew his tactical advantage

I think he was having a moral delima, i think he knew anakin was struggling too. He essentially was out numbered, and had no way to call for backup.

I think he was hot for little orphan Annie. Mace like to bugger young boys it what I heard around the Jedi water coolers. He was trying to get the emperor to put in a good word.

I thought it was because the moon is in the 7th house and Jupiter aligns with Mars

Same thing with Jules Winnfield: he could've just shot Brett immediately and been done with it, but no Jules had to go into his Bible spiel. Now, the kid in the other room with the howitzer for a gun could've stepped out at that moment and blew Jules away while he was in mid-preach, but he didn't. It would've made a funny scene if Jules gets blown away in the middle of his fire and brimstone.

It didn't happen like that, but still....quit with the yakking man, just kill the freakin dude.....

It's a common movie plot hole. It seems that the good guys and bad guys find themselves in a situation where the whole conflict could be over in the blink of an eye, but instead of taking advantage of it, they stop for a minute to run their damn mouths or come up with some overly complicated plan of achieving their goal.

Like why didn't Frodo and Sam just fly on the bird to Mordor instead of walking the whole way?

Peter Parker is supposed to be a very smart kid who knows a lot about spiders. He gets bit and never seeks medical attention. Seriously?

Well he knew Matthew McConaughey would not be there to defend him in a court of law.

But yes Palpatine deserved to die, and I HOPE HE BURNS IN HELL!

I think Mace Windu would've taken him out had Anakin not showed up. Once he did Palpatine screwed with Anakins head enough to basically turn him into Darth Vader.

Why didn't the weapons operator on that star destroyer shoot down the escape pod with the droids in it at the beginning of episode 4? If he had done that the movie would have been much shorter.

Luke wouldn't buy the droids, he would have met obi-wan, they would not have met han and chewie, they would not have rescued Leia, the death star plans wouldn't have made it to the the rebels, yavin 4 would have been destroyed and we wouldn't have had 5 more movies.

I think the best part is that none of what he said was scripted. It was all impromptu, totally off the cuff.
