I drew Darth Vader because one of our computers is called Darth Vader. This is because it's a cool black color. Darth Vader is also a cool black color, and until 1999 and 2005 (respectively) we were completely unaware that he ever said anything like "Yippee!" or "NOOOOOOO!". He was awesome until then.
In fact, no space-Jedi-men are as cool now as they were from 1977 to 1999. Yoda's a wuss who hid in a swampworld for 20 years, Obi Wan's a big baby who obviously allowed the desert sun to age him prematurely, and Jimmy Smits just sat around until his planet blew up. Oh, and he wasn't a jedi.
The emperor remains awesome. He was mean throughout 6 movies, and then got tossed down a shaft by his apprentice. That was cool. The only downside is that he left teeth marks on all the scenery.
