I will need some help filling in the blanks here so I left some of the numbers unfilled so we can easily slot in parts of this plan as we remember them.

i often think back to the scheme he had in clone wars where obiwan pretended to be dead and infiltrated a prison break and assassination attempt on palpatine which took months seemed to have an end goal of slightly annoying anakin

Sheev Palpatine shits and pisses wherever he's standing and then uses sith alchemy to disappear the waste. I'm not sure how that factors in but it's definitely a big part of the plan.

So, pre monster face what was Sheev's real voice? Was he pulling a reverse Batman for his entire political career?

So I can't blame you if you didn't hear about this because neither did I and I had to do research about it on the internet but these events were all part of Palpatine's "inter movie plan" which was an exciting part of his plan that took place between the films! This particular aspect of the plan sources from The Clone Wars and here is a historical photo





Now this might seem very similar to a different thing that happened in Attack of the Clones so to keep them straight I've included some of the bits I've remembered from attack of the clones in the plan.

Yes. Sheev always had a monster face and also somehow his hands were the only part of him severely impacted from being thrown into the core of an exploding death star.

An integral part of his plan is saying “Do it!” and “Good~” in the most amazing ways.

Also a bunch of poo poo involving Maul.

One detail you missed: the second bounty hunter used a droid which used bugs to try and kill Padme to make the plan more needlessly complicated.

Lets not forget that part of his plan from Phantom Menace, which goes on the list somewhere after Get Posse:

-manipulate galactic senate to tax trade routes to piss off Trade Federation
-manipulate Trade Federation to protest taxation by blockading my home planet
-when Jedi show up to try and settle the problem, order Trade Federation to murder them in cold blood just because and also invade and occupy planet to intensify crisis
-tell Trade Federation to use the captured Queen to sign a treaty to make the invasion and occupation legal even though that makes no sense on several levels
-actually expect the Queen to escape Naboo and reach Coruscant so you can use her politically
-send Darth Maul after Queen, telling the Trade Federation its to bring her back but presumably just to covertly let the Jedi know there's a Sith Lord involved in this plot to make them paranoid
-manipulate the queen so she will oust the old Chancellor apparently on her own volition leaving you with clean hands when people nominate you for the job
-get elected to Chancellor on a sympathy vote over the whole blockade and invasion thing
-order the Trade Federation to genocide the Gungans and the Queen's forces when they go back to fight them to tie up loose ends
-get Darth Maul killed on purpose during the whole thing since Tyrannus and the whole Sifo-Dyas/Clone Army thing is already in the wings for next phase of plan

Part of why Palpatine is such an enigma is he arguably already had that and all he had to do was kick back and retire from politics on his massive sith wealth with his crazy good government healthcare plan for being an ex supreme chancellor and he decided instead to try and rule through fear on top of it all.

also im beginning to suspect this palpatines fellow isn't so much a master planner as he is a skilled opportunist with a lot of power. which is actually how people who look like they're doing 5-d chess usually operate
