In addition to the comments about the "real hero" of SW, and ESB,
does anyone else get the feeling that the little droid is not
your everyday run of the mill astrodroid? Comments like Luke's in

	"I've never seen such devotion in a droid before"

R2-D2's ability to work undercover, both in tricking Luke into
remove the restraining bolt in SW, getting into all sorts of high-
security computer systems (the ever-present I/O port), and getting
the light saber to Luke from Jabba's sail-barge, all seem to indicate
that R2 is a very special machine.

Granted these impressions are due to the fact that the trilogy does
not give much info on what a normal droid can do, but since the
droids are the only characters that will appear in all nine films
perhaps there is something different about them. Even C3PO exceeds his
design specifications (SW: "I'm really only a interpreter, and not
very good at telling stories") when he gives his account of his
adventures to the Ewoks.
