For 800 years he has trained Jedi. All of them. Sharing with his students nearly a thousand years of accumulated wisdom and knowledge, he has led them through their youngling years, teaching them the mysteries of The Force until their acceptance by their Masters as Padawan learners. He has maintained a connection with them through The Force, offering guidance to each as they require it. He feels the life and the death of every Jedi he has taught, regardless of the distance between them.
And so, Jedi Master Yoda feels a great disturbance in The Force as the young Jedi, Anakin Skywalker, is seduced by the Dark Side and becomes the agent of evil, Darth Vader. He feels the death of every Jedi Master, Knight, Padawan, and Youngling slaughtered en masse on the orders of Vader's Sith master, Darth Sidious.
Heavy of heart and burdened with terrible purpose, Master Yoda understands that only he has the strength and skill to combat Lord Sidious and end his reign of darkness before it begins. So he sends the only other living Jedi, Obi-wan Kenobi, to destroy the Dark Lord's apprentice who was once his best friend. Leaving Yoda to face the newly-crowned Emperor on his own.
After an epic battle that shatters the Republic Senate chamber, Yoda ultimately fails in his quest to destroy Darth Sidious. He consigns himself to exile on the planet Dagobah, where he awaits the coming-of-age of the twin babes who represent the galaxy's final hope against the oppression of The Sith.
