Apparently, the Jedi live under a strict code. My question, wouldn’t the Jedi Code promote fairness and chivalry? “A jedi only attacks in defense”, says Yoda.
If so why did Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan bum-rush Darth Maul, who was just standing in an elevator? Luckily, it worked out for Maul, since he had a double-saber to thwart such a double-attack.
At the end of AOTC, Anakin and Obi-Wan begin to gang up on old-man Dooku while he’s trying to get away.
Why can’t it be mano-y-mano? Bad guys are usually the ones who cheat (like Vader getting his Stormtroopers to help vs Obi-Wan).
