    Empire, huh?  Great movie.  You are old -- but also lucky!  Imagine if you had seen Return of the Jedi the night before and spent the entire Bar Exam with these nagging question reverberating in your subconscious:

    What the hell was all that about the Ewoks?  How could they defeat the Empire with a bunch of vines?  Wasn't there someone ambitious enough to take the reins of the entire damn Empire after Palpatine was killed instead of ceding control to Leia and her teddy bear Swiss Guard?  What the hell?  Why can't I concentrate on these damn exam questions?  Why did I spend good money on that movie?  DAMMIT!

    They tortured people to get false confessions to fraudulently justify invasion of Iraq.

      One our essay questions had to do with a crashed satellite becoming an attractive nuisance. Maybe Empire was relevant.

        a crashed satellite is pretty damned attractive!  Did you work in Cardozo's "there is no negligence in the air"?  I'm amazed that you can still remember your questions; I've completely blocked most of mine from memory.

          and the first semester of law school (University of Memphis) Criminal Law final on whether inviting a person to a snake handling church worship service might be Manslaughter or even Murder should the guest be bitten by a Rattler passed down the aisle and die.

          Others were more mundane.

            I've actually wondered about that.  Assumption of risk?  What if it's a minor?
