Why wasn't Vader like, "WTF? You told me she died, dick? Now I have a son? Anything else you want to tell me?"
Well, I think the Emperor did think she was dead.
I get Vader not piecing together the Luke connection in ANH, but I don't get why he wasn't pissed in Empire. And you mean to tell me that noone involved with the production of this movie went, "Wait a minute, thats a pretty big error." Was Lucas that big of a dick?
Well, Vader is pissed at the Emperor, and has been for a few decades now due to the fact that following him led to the death of his wife. Vader was very actively plotting on overthrowing him, but felt he needed Luke since Vader is basically a cripple now and can't take down the Emperor by himself. No one else would help Vader kill the Emperor since the Emperor is incredibly powerful and dangerous, and Vader is probably even more unstable and violent than the Emperor himself. The Emperor is much, much stronger than he is and I would take a guess that he could instantly kill him with his mind.
If the new trilogy kicks ass, how pissed will you be that no one wanted to stop George from getting in his own way with the prequels?
Honestly, I hope they don't address a single aspect of the prequel trilogy, so once Lucas dies, someone who actually knows what the frick they are doing can go remake them.
