Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

I would like to think that he is subconsciously force-sensitive, but I don't think he is just because it doesn't seem like something GL would approve.  That and, for once, I believe Supershadow's midichlorian chart.

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

I dont think he is force sensitive i think he just has really fast reflexes like it says in bhw.

Easily. This is what destroyed all the other Expanded Universe novels and theories around Boba Fett. Is he shown using the force or is it acknowledged in any of the films? No. Then he isn't. No books count, not even novelizations, in the "canon" world.

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

i don't think boba fett force sensitive because jango wasn't(as far as i know).and if jango was force sensitive then the clones would be force sensitive and that's just the kaminoans wanted.but he wasn't and the clones didn't have the force soooo i don't think boba has the force.and anyway the jedi would have sensed the force in boba at geonosisor obi wan at kamino.

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

My point is that he may have the Dark Side of the Force without understanding it, and it enhances his actions.  The Jedi Counsel never detected Darth Sidious, so perhaps the Dark Side naturally conceals itself.

Right, that would take training and a high level of mcs.  But couldn't it be used as a booster to your actions, like in the game?

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

If you're untrained and it only boosts you, then how can you be Light Side or Dark Side? The Force is the Force, it's how you use it that makes you Light or Dark. The Dark Side is not it's own Force. And if it's only there to boost your reflexes or something, then how is that light or dark? I would think Jedi need fast reflexes as much as Sith do?

Edit: Oops, I have no idea why I typed trailed instead of trained. But I fixed it.

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

but don't forget that sidious was ver adept at the dark side and he could conceal his force.the jedi could not find him because he was adept at concealing the force.yet yoda still sensed the dark side but could not pinpoint it.but if you're say a padawan you probably couldn't conceal your powers from a force sensitive being.therefore if boba fett was force sensitive he would be detected as would the clones.but if you're saying he had above average human midichlorians and yet he was still under 7000 then i think the force could boost his actions without the force sensitives noticing.

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

it's a 50/50 chance either way.

Although I'd have to say no, because if he was it would ruin the character for me.

It's a definate mindset in each case.  Jedi get their focus in a Zen manner of peacefulness, (Qui-Gon Jinn resting before forcefield drops), and the Sith focusing their wills through passion, (Darth Maul pacing and slapping at that forcefield with his saber).  In the Fett trilogy, I read numerous occasions where he got miffed just before doing something incredible.

Not being able to take anything from non-movie sources kills my argument, though, and makes Lucas the first and only authority.  This suits only him, and he is the man who concealed Jason Wingreen's identity from us, and later denied us of that amazing voice altogether, neutering our esteemed hero.

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

Oh, I don't mind EU sources at all. It was Eric who didn't want EU sources.

It's been 5+ years since I read the BHW trilogy so I forgot some parts of it by now. But what you said does sound right. About being miffed, but miffingness isn't the Dark Side, I found some of the Jedi to be miffeled at times. I always thought of Boba as being sorta calm? Not really passionate and hateful. Then again he's not really all nice and peaceful all the time. I'd say if he does have Force Sensativity he'd be more in the grey area Dark Jedi fall into.

So if someone is talented you say well, he might have the force and that's the reason why?
Good sir, I find that very notion insulting.

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

Yes, but not for the uncommonly talented, for the rarely gifted and supremely skilled.  We're talking about the Top Dog of warriors whose wallet would read "Baddest Mo-Fo In The Hezouse" in our modern expressions.  He compares to John Wayne (legendary toughness) and Clint Eastwood (laconic, taciturn,and deadlyness), to Jack Nicholson (edged voice), to Chuck Norris (combat and tenacity), and to Rommel (tactical genius).  He embodies the highest level of intimidation without even being tall.  He even gets away with having a first name that most people find dorky.  Boba isn't just talented and skilled, he's Talented and Skilled!  Fett's The Man, and there must be more going on under the surface than just a lot of favorable opportunity, positive attitude, and hard-earned experience.

When you mentioned the guy with the wallet that reads "Baddest Mo-Fo," I suddenly pictured Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta sitting in Dex's diner in Jedi robes, getting robbed by that Deathstick dealer guy.

lol  Yeah, it's written in purple LED lights on the grip, and John Travolta goes by his last name but is addicted to spice instead of smack.

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

Precisely one of the reasons I absolutely hate Mace and SJ. This is SW. You know, the space opera, the classic legend, the romantic (not love, the other meaning of romantic) story, the beautiful tale? Not some punked up junkey peice of garbage where a few ego guys go around killing people.

Anyway, yes, Boba is indeed all of that. But I tend to think he did it on his own. But I thought Boba was tall? When I added it up he's about 6'. It was on some meters to feet site. But I have no idea which one cause I just picked the first one that came up on Google. And here's a good way to tell. When standing next to Vader Boba comes up to Vader's chin or so. Luke's about 5'9" I think and when he's next to Vader he comes up to Vader's shoulder.

Well, isn't Darth Vader's mechanical body a little taller than Anakin's original frame?

Yeah? Vader's 6'6" (or thereabouts) and Anakin was 6'2".

Re: Do you think Boba Fett is Force sensitive and why?

well maybe he grew? Or maybe its something in his suit, his boots, his helmet, or maybe his robotic legs were tall!!!. I honestly dont think hes 6'6 though......I think he grew a little and became like 6'4 or something....
