Clue/Question: Darth Vader’s success as Imperial Enforcer was due to the fact that he was this.
(Happy 35th Anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars movie! Ya gotta hand it to the guys. They really stay up on impending events, to give us themed jumbles. I only heard about this this morning, when I turned on the television news, before I brought in the paper. Otherwise I wouldn’t have given this a second thought. That Darth Vader is so iconic.
The usual great jumbling of the clue words. I didn’t find any of them particularly difficult, but the word “sludge” is fun. And, it’s NOT in the ralis95 clue word database, so that makes it new! The answer letter layout was good, and the answer pun is very appropriate.
I always liked the original three movies in the series. I saw the Jar Jar Binks, The Phantom Menace, prequel, and then I kind of lost interest. I never saw the other two prequels. Maybe, someday, I’ll see them all, in the order George Lucas has laid out the saga. But, I doubt it. Be well, do good . . . and “may the force be with you”, friends.) — YUR
