The Dark Side’s One Weakness First, there were the Storm Troopers: Silent, cruel, anonymous. Until Finn removed his helmet, we never saw a Storm Trooper’s true face. These sterile white, faceless soldiers were chilling in their anonymity, ruthlessly carrying out their Emperor’s evil will. Well, they tried to, anyway. In the history of the Empire, not one Stormtrooper has ever succeeded in shooting someone with a blaster. (It’s true. Check the history books). This made it very difficult for the Dark Side to win battles. Palpatine was getting frustrated. He hired a different marksman to instruct his super soldiers in the skill of actually blowing enemies away. “Try pointing your weapon at your target!” the marksman suggested. But the Stormtroopers just couldn’t master the skill. To give his campaign of “destroying everything” better odds, Palpatine had the bright idea of creating a more accurate task force.
