I don't know what you're talking about. I am a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan-- In my experience, there is no such thing as luck. I can't get involved! I've got work to do! It's not that I like the Empire, I hate it, but there's nothing I can do about it right now. It's such a long way from here. The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.
