Much like the Hands from the EU.  Force sensitives who worked in the shadows doing the Emperors will.   The Inquisitors work openly...leading troops, commanding civilians.  This doesn't mesh with Imperial Propaganda of Force Users.  Vader was usually the only one who could work openly with no push back.
Agreed. You even referenced a scene where Vader and Sid unleashed hell because there was no one around to hide from........that were going to survive the encounter. This was also observed in the OC. Vader gave explicit order to Starkiller to kill all who saw him; "Imperials and Kota's men alike." Though, now I want to see what happens if you leave any survivors in that mission.

It always amazed me when I read "The Jedi Path" how they talk about certain Force abilities-like the Lightning ability-being a Sith only ability.  This is just really a case of it depends on intent of the power you're using.  I mean, I read somewhere that quite a number of the Jedi that were in the Medical Corps knew the Lightning ability because it was a good way to restart a person's heart that had stop, much like they do with defibs today.  I mean, I get that a lot of Sith love using that ability, but the various powers that a Jedi and Sith use are neither good or evil.  It's just about intent.

From my understand it has to do with A.) The "feelings" needed to manifest it. and B.) Its nature.     

Force Lightening is created by using Anger..ie the Dark Side.  As to nature its purely an offensive move...Jedi are only supposed to use the Force in defense.

It's not a far cry from the truth. Just as one electrical surge can interrupt the involuntary muscular rhythm of the heart, and another can restart it, why couldn't such an electrical surge be generated from the "light side". As I have argued for a long time, light and dark emanate from the heart not the Force.

I agree.  If I remember correctly, a Lightsider using lightening had to be very skilled and carful since it was something that could easily be used for ill.  I remember in the PSX game Jedi Power Battles, Plo Koon could use lightening.

That is very true. Much like Windu using Juyo/Vapaad, or teaching it for that matter, the use of emotions for a Jedi was walking a razor thin line.

Same with Adi Gallia in Star Wars Jedi Starfighter. Though these are both quite non-canon

Yeah, I think I remember reading somewhere that Mace only taught one other person his unique style of Vapaad (and I could be mis-remembering the amount) and it backfired horribly.  It's why he wouldn't teach it to anyone else that asked, because I believe Anakin asked at one point to be taught it and Mace told him basically "no way in hell".

If memory serves, the Jedi Path talked about only a very select few students are ever taught Juyo. It is similar to some real world martial arts that are only taught as a means of preserving knowledge only.

Saw this yesterday as well. Hilarious, but still missed so many opportunities. I liked that I wasn't the only one who picked up that Finn is next to useless except for whooping and needlessly screaming at people who can't hear him.

The "that come out of nowhere" lined from Windu really cracked me up.  It heartens me that the "fly by the seat of their pants" story telling was obvious to a lot more people.

I don't remember that line. Have to watch again.

I just watched all 3 again this week. To me, the "story telling" is what screamed MONEY GRAB the loudest. It came across as a couple of fan-boys that "loved" the originals and loaded 80% of a feminazi producer's girl-power fanfic with remade scenes and references. The rest was colloquial contrivances and shark jumps.
