Why was Emperor Palpatine killed so easily?

  1. It is worth noting that Palpatine did not land: his body exploded before it had the chance. The shaft led to the DS II reactor, so that was what killed him.

  2. Luke was right from the beginning. Palpatine's overconfidence was his weakness. One of the major differences between Yoda and Palpatine was their reliance on foresight. Palpatine believed what the force had shown him: The alliance would be destroyed at Endor, and Luke would become the next Sith apprentice. Yoda had warned both Luke and Anakin to NEVER rely on foresight because it only showed the viewer a very narrow vision based upon current circumstances. If you watch the movie closely, you will see that the tide suddenly changes when Luke refuses to kill Vader. At that point, Palpatine lost his advantage. His overconfidence had allowed an armed Jedi to walk freely near him, relieved him of his own security detail, and openly admitted his treachery to his VERY dangerous apprentice. A physical manifestation of his overconfidence is how close to the open bridge he had walked. Vader didn't have to go very far to kill Palpatine because Palpatine was already practically at the bridge.

  3. Remember when Vader destroyed the entire medical room with the crushing power of the force alone when He learned his wife died. Think of what he could have done to Palpatine's body after watching him trying to kill his son.

  4. Anak in did not bring balance by wiping out the sith and still having jedi that is not balance

  5. Palpatine so easily died only for discharge because he was weak. Throughout the saga of the dark power shows the audience in a special way, in secret, majestic, fascinating. But in the end, no matter what power you would not have had if you're on the side of evil - you are worthless as a bug/
