Not all government. Just that one. It would be like trying to spend Japanese Yen at 7-11 in Nebraska. Not happening probably.
@thejamesshow00, I'm pretty sure it was more like saying dollars don't work in Nebraska. Because I thought Tatooine was under republic control?
@Pyvin, tatooine is notorious for being under control of the Hutts and is generally too sparsely populated for heavy enforcement from the Senate
@thejamesshow00, didn't 7-11 come flom Japan?
@Good Pineapple Pizza, it did, and the 7-11s in Japan are so much nicer than the ones here in the US.
Although I imagine American 7-11s will only accept American currency.
@Sexy Homunculus, i guess
@Oh so cherry, plus it's Outer Rim
Yeah, this would be like going to Cuba and expecting them to take American dollars.
Tattooine was under the control of the Hutt cartel, it was not a part of the Republic. They opposed the Republicans and were opposed by the Republic, why would Watto want Republic currency? Remember that the dude was a slave owner.
Should have just killed him
@megamanx181x, he's not a sith!
@Mantis Tobaggan, no but he’s a dick for owning slaves!
@megamanx181x, true. Maybe a true gray would have killed him? There are theories that Qui Gon is a gray Jedi but I personally think he leans much more light than dark, I wish they gray Jedi would be further explored. They seem to be lawful neutrals and could be very interesting
@megamanx181x, should have just stolen the part. He tried to make him take useless money with the Jedi mind trick... What's the difference, really
@sheishkabob, damn morals
@Mantis Tobaggan, agreed
