The Emporer was able to influence the Senate through the Force, he could wipe out just about any group because he has an entire galaxy behind him. Except Ewoks, he can't win against those pesky Ewoks.

Seems using the force on a group would be difficult at best...I have seen no signs the force works as fast as you mentioned.

The leap that Luke makes in Empire Strikes Back is pretty frickin fast. Most impressive!

technomages don't have phasers, but a Jedi could obliterate a Starfleet away team

Yeah, he's one powerful dude.

Amazing he only made himself about 100 feet tall in that scene in Vietnam. In theory, he could probably appear ten times that tall. Or more.
