IntroductionEdit

Wanted to get thoughts on tightening up the introduction section and moving some of the material there to the other sections below. --Random00021 (talk) 18:25, August 22, 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm going to be cleaning up this article over the next couple of days to make the overall article more cohesive and easier to read. Before performing any mass undos or reversions, please instead add back the individual piece of information you think is missing, understanding that I may have moved that piece of information to a different section of the article. Thanks Random00021 (talk) 20:58, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
  • I wanted to get people's thoughts on trimming down some of the information dealing with the aftermath of the battle. The information dealing with the aftermath of the battle (both in the Introduction section and the Aftermath section) seems to take away from the main article which is discouraged according to the Wookieepedia:Layout Guide. For example, the Aftermath section is ~1,300 words compared to ~4,200 words. This in an of itself isn't a problem; however, some areas seem to go into too much detail, like the content from SW:Uprising related to the Anoat Sector and the Iron Blockade. Rather than focusing on the aftermath of the actual battle, the second half of Aftermath section seems to be trying to cram in all the major events that happened up until the Battle of Jakku. Thoughts?

Added details to Final actions section. --Random00021 (talk) 02:48, June 3, 2015 (UTC)

"Death of Anakin Skywalker"Edit

"It saw the... death of Anakin Skywalker"

Would it be okay for me to change the "Anakin Skywalker" in the text to "Darth Vader"? I just feel like it's more right, as he doesn't call himself "Anakin" anymore. The reason I put it in the talk page is because I don't want to straight up do it, in case someone wants an input. --LoLuX12 (talk) 01:06, April 10, 2016 (UTC)

  • Since he was redeemed at the time of his death, he was Anakin Skywalker once more. Take the Databank entry for Anakin, for example: "Vader saved Luke from the Emperor and killed his evil Master, once again becoming Anakin Skywalker." - Brandon Rhea(talk) 01:08, April 10, 2016 (UTC)
    • Okay, understandable! :) --LoLuX12 (talk) 01:10, April 10, 2016 (UTC)
    • True, as far as it goes. But this article is about a pivotal battle in the Galactic Civil War. Throughout that war, Darth Vader was a key player, while Anakin Skywalker was essentially absent. So in the context of this battle—indeed, the entire war—the death of Darth Vader is highly significant, and the death of Anakin a footnote.

      The article's body sufficiently details Vader's dying transition back to Anakin, but the sentence LoLuX12 is asking about appears in the introduction, where that level of detail is inappropriate. The intro needs to hit the key points. Darth Vader's death is a key point of the Battle of Endor. Anakin Skywalker's is not. Asithol (talk) 11:59, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

Rebel sizeEdit

According to the last edit to the article, there are 4 MC80a Star Cruisers and 9 overall MC80 Star Cruisers seen in the movie. Can anyone verify that?--Vitus Infinitus (talk) 19:32, November 20, 2017 (UTC)

  • That has been changed more times than I can remember, and likewise with Battle of Scarif. Because it's so hard to make things out, it's very difficult to verify, so edits like this aren't normally reverted unless someone has the time to count and give actual evidence (or is trusted). - Tommuskq Imperial Emblem (TAKE A SEAT) 19:41, November 20, 2017 (UTC)

Battlefront II missionEdit

Should we include the Star Wars Battlefront II mission on the Death Star II seeing as everything on that game is meant to be canon. Also what is the name of the Major on the comms when you play that mission.--Ben sc01t (talk) 07:28, February 10, 2018 (UTC)

  • No because those are just game modes and not actual canon things that happened --Lewisr (talk) 06:52, June 5, 2018 (UTC)

Number of Dornean gunships Edit

This doesn't sound like a Canon article. Edit

The content here sounds like it is beyond the Canon series and using Legends sources like the too detailed space battle and aftermath. Please check. Jeneral28 (talk) 07:06, August 31, 2018 (UTC)

  • Same please give examples of what doesn't sound canon, aftermath section includes canon only sources--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 07:16, August 31, 2018 (UTC)

Dark Lord of the Sith?Edit

Is there some reason why Darth Vader is referenced as the Dark Lord of the Sith in the infobox and not Darth Sidious? Also, there are various references to Palpatine but given the extensive conversation about the fact that in the Canon he is Sidious for all intents and purposes after his plan is successful following RotS (which is why the article name was changed, correct?), wouldn't it be more appropriate to make more reference to Sidious than Palpatine?--130.126.255.78 16:15, December 7, 2018 (UTC)

Leia Edit

Does Leia count as commander in infobox? --Goodmind (talk) 15:14, November 9, 2019 (UTC)

Who was the pilot? Edit

Who is this pilot who said, "Three of them, coming in, twenty degrees." Unsigned comment by NoahAlexanderJohnson101 (talk • contribs).
