Trevor Bauer reveals questionable taste in Star Wars movies

Bauer said his relationship with the drone (which he brought with him to the press conference), is like a good marriage. “We argue all the time.” He also explained that his interest in drones grew out of his love for Star Wars, because drones reminded him of the speeder bikes used by the Empire (and then by Luke, Leia, and at least one Ewok) on the forest moon of Endor in Return of the Jedi.

That led to what will undoubtedly be the most controversial moment of the session, when Bauer revealed that his favorite Star Wars movie is The Phantom Menace, the entry remembered by many for its detailed discussions of the Galactic Senate’s parliamentary procedures and the inclusion of Jar Jar Binks, perhaps the least popular character in movie history. Bauer’s explanation for his fondness for The Phantom Menace (in the interest of fairness, I’ll acknowledge that Bauer said he loves all the movies, and it’s sort of a 1A, 1B situation) is that he loves Darth Maul, one the movie’s villains. This affinity for Maul may explain by Ben “Obi-Wan” Revere has a career OPS of 1.548 against Bauer.
