I guess its possible. I mean I dont remember how old Anakin was, but surely he was meant to grow just a tinsy winsy bit. Maybe?

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

Well to conclude my opinion,I think Boba is force sensitive but not enough to control it.That means that in difficult situations the force works on Boba like a unnexpected gift.It encances his powers and his focus.

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

Right.  I never claimed that he levitated anything or felt someone's presence beyond his normal senses, (though the olfactory sensor in his helmet makes him something of a bloodhound).  He does amazing things when he's pushed too far, and he doesn't get bent out of control over situations, but rather, just suddenly able to handle anything with unerring precision.  How many "character points" Solo was called to use to get lucky enough to set off Boba's jetpack is one of the great mysteries of the SW universe, and why Fett couldn't recover from that flight is another.  He's not completely infallible, and everyone has an Achilles Heel, eh?  But, given that was pretty much the only way to defeat someone like him, I'll have to take the Great Lucas on his writ...

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

There was another Star Wars game that had high level Darktroopers (Imperial Droids) listed  with Dark Side Force points, when that's impossible...as far as I know for a droid to even be force sensitive. It's possible that the non force characters are just given those boosts to be more of a challenge in the games.

As far as natural talent and the force go, "I think you underestimate us non-force types."

I don't think it's fair that to be capable of amazing things you have to have the force or magical powers, that's what makes Boba and Jango's accomplishments against Jedi and Sith alike so impressive.

In real life, people will fight better or perform better when they're angry or calmed and at peace, and as far as I know, not many people in real life are force sensitive.  tongue

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

ok, I quick-read through all the posts in this thread, so I appologize if this has already been covered as I may have missed it.  You have to consider the fact that all life contains midichlorians (biggest Lucas cop-out ever IMHO), so that would make every living thing -or at least every sentient, living thing- sensitive to the Force on some level subject to definition.

In Boba Fett's case, I believe this has manifested itself as a highly evolved form of instinct or insight coupled with increased intelligence.  Physically this may manifest as advanced reflexes, dexterity, stamina, strength, etc along with the superior conditioning and constitution inherited from his father, who probably possessed these same qualities.

Fett not only survives, but thrives, hunting and capturing some of the most dangerous scum the Universe has to offer.  There is no coincidence that he is the best at what he does, and just happens to have a pretty high midichlorian count.

In TOTBH In 4-Lom and Zuckuss's tale at the end 4-Lom has a vision of himself training at Luke's Jedi academy.

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

I don't think having midichlorians, and being force-sensitive are the same thing. As many have posted, everyone has midichlorians inside them, it is the essence of life (or something). I'm not 100% sure, but isn't being force-sensitive the ability to use the force to help you? Not the actual using of the force, but the ability to learn to control it.

Also, about all that, What's canon and what isn't. Lucas practically said that only the movies are canon, and yet he recognized the fact that Boba escaped the sarlaac because he planned to put it in the movie. The only reason he didn't, was because he thought it would take away from the rest of the scene and actually wasn't truly necessary.

Did he actually say that?  When and where?

I like to think that he is subconsciously force-sensitive as a lot of people have already mentioned, subconscious enough that it is still something he does "on his own."  And I also like the idea that that might be a reason why he was employed and relatively in good standing with Vader etc.

It can't be subconsious, and be something he does on his own. Subconsious means something you do without knowing, or without trying to.

And I'll try to find where i saw the article about him trying to put Boba's escape in the movie.

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

i think boba is force sensetive but not enough to use it unless he is trained in the jedi arts

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

I wonder if Darth Sidious had the Kamenios add a level of midichlorians in the master DNA  donation Jango gave to form the clones giving them an ability to sense the "Jedi" force.
If I understand how poweriful Darth Sidious was..he could create life as he wanted it to be.Making a force sensitive clone would be in line.Especially when he had plans to have the clones turn against the Jedis hunt them down and destroy them.Making the orginal batch force sensitive being able to "pick up "on the Force when needed.Which in turn was added to Bobas DNA when created ap per the agreement for Jango.
I have an argument to my theory and maybe a answer for it.In ANH why didn't the stormtroopers pick up on Obi-wan and Luke having the Force withthem and they fell for Jedi "trickery" if there DNA was from the orginal batch developed by the Kamenios.Maybe by time those 'Troopers had been cloned and develop that part of their DNA matrix had gone away since apparently their combat skills inheritated from Jangos DNA had also left.But for Boba he was able to develop force sensitive ability  since he was not programed like the other clones.
Just a thought

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

Boba could be force sensitive he took on vader pretty good with out jedi training or maybe it could be that he's just smart enough, and strong enough to avoid, or take it on.

Your god won't be there to save you, or maybe I will

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

Shame on me for not knowing the origin of Fett's fight with Vader.  Could someone please bring me up to speed on this?

I want to point out, again, that using a Force Point gave a character four extra d-6 to an attempt, versus a Character Point offering just one six-sided die to the roll, (speaking in terms of the original Star Wars game).  My reading of the Fett trilogy supported this difference.

4-Lom was the protocal droid-gone-combat that served with the Force-sensative Zuckuss, who was the one that dreampt of going to the Light Side, joining the Rebellion, and training with Luke.  Droids can't have visions, not even 4-Lom.

Lastly, Imperial stormtroopers are NOT the clones!!  Cloning was outlawed by Emperor Palpatine himself, (though he did apparently have a 25 year old clone of himself awaiting his mental transfer at the Battle of Endor, when he fell down the reactor core).  Stormtroopers are just the marines of the Empire, human men picked from various worlds, without Force Sensativity.  Palpatine was not going to fall prey to a Order 66, so he banned cloning, and Vader hunted down any would-be jedi.

I'd say that Vader let Fett live because Boba wasn't trained, (he knew that he could take Boba in a fight as easily as anyone else).

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

Boba's fight with Vader is in Enemy of the Empire, a comic book. In it Boba has a clear shot at Vader, and could have taken it, but didn't want to suddenly become #1 on the Most Wanted By the Empire list.

No it was 4-Lom he learnt intuition from Zuckuss and had a vision of that. I dont think there's much chance of me being wrong since i have just read that part of the book.

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

I know he had an incredible gift for intuition, a common trait of the Gand if I remember correctly, but I don't think he was Force sensitive. I read it awhile ago, but I'm pretty sure 4-Lom did manage to experience intuition.

Now about the original topic, no, I don't think it's possible for Boba to be Force sensitive. In the Star Wars Roleplaying Game, a person gets darkside points for doing evil deeds, no matter the intentions. Anyone can get a virtually limitless amount of Dark Side points, but only a person with the Force Sensitive feat can have more than 5 Force Points. The RPG is not a reliable source to invoke here, as I can make a character, have him kill a few babies, and have a ton of Dark Side points to spent. And on the point of droids, they can earn Dark Side points but not Force points in the RPG. Unless a person is Force Sensitive, the DSPs only go towards alignment. But if you want to go by the game, does he have the Force Sensitive feat? Does he have more than 5 Force points? I'm not gonna get my Core Rule Book out, but I don't think so.

And besides, he's had too many direct dealings with Force-users for them not to notice any Force Sensitivity. And where would he get it from? He has no Force heritage, and while I know a Force sensitive child can come from non-Force using parents, it's highly unlikely.

Now personally, I think the idea of mcs is completely idiotic. One of Lucas' mistakes that are becoming much more common since Episode I.

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

Thanks Dealer of Death, for that explanation.  I haven't  played the SW rpg since '95, and only briefly then.  Ok, I'll let it go, based on this.

I still say, about a droid intuition, that 4-Lom's "vision" is wickedly farfetched.  If any droid could experience something like that, it would have been the IG-88s, but Fett's advantage over those units was that very difference.  True, I can't beat a chess computer on any but the most basic levels, but advanced algorythms don't exactly match true yet obscure foresight.

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

Well, if they have a perfect replication of sentiency, and a heuristic processor that allows them to learn, they're really not mentally different from a humanoid, perhaps even superior. Whatever part of the mind controls intuition, perhaps it can be created unintentionally by the blending of algorythms or complex programs. I'm far from an expert at AI, but just throwing that out there.

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

he has a certian sensitivity and pick upon things

SF is what life is all about.

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

Boba is NOT force sensitive.
If Boba was force sensitive Jango would be too and would never have been able to be a Mandalorian.
Thats what makes Boba and Jango cool.
They don't have to rely on the force.
They can actually handle themselves.

I'm just a simple man, trying to make my way in the universe.

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

It wouldn't have to make Jango Force Sensative too. There can be clones that are Force Sensative without their original sources being Force Sensative as well. Dorsk 81 (89? 86? 80-something) was one, and I'm only fairly sure that's his name, he was in the Jedi Acadamy Trilogy.
