After watching this again, something just didn't sit right with me.

After the fight with Count Dooku, the ship is headed for the planet almost no power, then explodes in half, and miraculously lands. Now then... There is NO WAY Palpatine could have known they would have survived. For him not to get to an escape pod or "break cover" is simply amazing! NO way an evil mastermind doesn't protect himself first. Thoughts????
