R2 may be the most useful character in the entire SW universe

Think about it, if it weren't for R2 all of the heroes from all of the movies would have died except maybe Yoda. If the Emperor had real foresight he'd have taken out that little droid in the first 5 seconds of episode 1 and wham all his major opposition dies, Luke is never born, he marches over the galaxy unopposed

Lol. Yeah, Emperor should've done that.

@ReVamp: if you go through those movies and pay attention to what R2 is doing you'll see that he's spending the whole saga in the background saving everyone's asses with virtually no thanks despite being more useful than the entire jedi counsel

Well without Qui Gon finding Anakin, he wouldn't have grown to be a douche and destroy the Republic and cause rise to the Empire.

@deranged_midget: even before he turned Anakin to the Dark Side, Palpatine still had Count Dooku as his apprentice.

I wish R2D2 was my dad. That's how cool he is.
