Topic: Boba Fett and "Forgivness"

BFFC Manji edit: Okay, so a few of us got a wee bit off topic in the "Is Mace Windu really dead?" thread, so I decided to split up the last few posts so we could have a separate topic to discuss whether we believe Boba has the capacity to forgive or not, especially in regard to forgiving Mace Windu for killing his father Jango. So please feel free to share your thoughts on this particular discussion!

It kinda sucks that he died that way though

The only person I feel sorry for is Sammy Jay. I lost what little respect I had for Mace Windu on Clone Wars the moment after little Boba said, "I'll never forgive you," and Mace came back with, "Well, you're going to have to."
That's such a terrible thing to say; especially when you're the one who killed his father! Seriously what was he (and what were the writers) thinking? He's supposed to be a role model??? Really? Really???

I just thought it was extremely rude that he said that Boba had to. Especially since Mace did nothing to earn it. I can completely understand why Jango had to die, but that's no reason to treat his orphan son like some street rat even if he did try to kill him.

Your not suppose to earn forgiveness.

Re: Boba Fett and "Forgivness"

I think Boba was traumatized losing his father so suddenly at such a young age. I mean, one minute, his father is standing there right at his side, the next he's laying headless in the dirt. I mean, Jango's death happens pretty dang fast in the movie. In the eyes of little Boba it was incredibly shocking and probably didn't sink in instantaneously.

I haven't watched the Clone Wars episodes with young Boba yet (I know shame on me), so I'm not sure at ALL how he treats Mace Windu, Jedi, or even other clones. I can say I don't exactly blame Boba for holding a grudge, especially as a CHILD. What happens to an individual during childhood can shape them for YEARS, even their entire life! When you read anything written by Karen Travis depicting Fett you definitely see that he is STILL struggling to cope with his father's death even as a grown man.

In some ways, I think Jango's death kind of prevented Boba from growing up. Yes, Boba did have to grow up fast in order to look after and fight for himself. But I don't think he was ever able to learn or develop certain ideas such as "forgiveness." He held steadfast grudges and never really learned how to give anyone a second chance... and I do believe that you can pretty much pin it all down on Mace Windu killing Jango in the midst of his young son.

I doubt Boba ever forgave Windu. If he had then why would he still have a hatred for Jedi later in his life rather then just dislike for them?
