except for the fact tht the machines vastly outnumber said person. Its like if Palpatine tried to corrupt a tyranid hive tyrant. The tyrant's conscioussness is practically a manifestation of the entire hive mind. The hive mind is made up of billions and billions and billions of organisms, and tens of millions of those could tear palpatine apart in a heartbeat without even trying. The hive mind would utterly wreck palpatine, he would go insane as he tried to control something infinitely vast, uncomprehensibly large.
