I was watching some Star Wars and it dawned on me the light side has terrible medical technology compared to the Dark Side. I mean the light side you get stabbed once you are dead but the dark side you come back with a few bits and bobs. For example Darth Maul gets chopped in half and falls down a deep dark pit of no return and somehow lives he gets patched up apparently. General Grevious is nothing but a head, heart, and lungs. Darth Vader had almost all his limbs chopped off and was burned alive, he came back stronger than ever.

Well, thats what happens when you use heavy handed symbolism as a stand in for medical science. -.-

Who is really light and who is really dark?

Dark side: Will take someone and train them to be strong and independent enough to take out tens of jedi. If they fail they will be given a second or third chance even if they are disabled or crippled. They will use any technology available to save their own.

Light Side: Will take someone who is strong and teach them obey the Jedi ways without question. If they fail then it is up to the force if they will be allowed to live or not. Even though full body cybernetics are available.

Agreed with Rujikin. Sounds like the "Dark Side" is a better employer.

When you put it that way the light side sounds like the worst employers ever.

A second thought. Have any of the Jedi ever actually died by being dismembered or is it just stab wounds and slashes? Cause I can't recall any of the Jedi that have been injured enough to even need a limb replacement besides...

Most of the Jedi die pretty much immediately from fatal slashes or fatal stabs to the vitals don't they?

Jedi turn into ghosts, Sith turn into robot zombies. Just remember that it's evil to feel bad about bad things happening and you'll be a fairly good Jedi.

And an annoying phlematic-wheeze cough that sounds like somebody's bad-smelling granddad.

And revive frostbite/Yeti attacks.

Grevious had the cough because Mace Windu crushed his lungs. Didn't really recall the frostbite though, good catch.
