Not really. The closest he ever got was "Apology accepted, Captain Needa." And even that I'd hardly call a joke.

That's definitely a joke. "We would be honored if you would join us" and "I find your lack of faith disturbing" along with "Apology accepted, Captain Needa" are absolutely jokes. Vader's a little sarcastic. "Be careful not to choke on your aspirations, director" is in the same vein as the other lines I mentioned.

Ehh, I just think the other ones are more subtle but okay.

I really felt that line was terrible. It was overtly blatant and the whole moment was a little ruined because of it, for me, to be honest.

I feel ya. "Blatant" is a good way to put it.

Vader's sass extends to other media as well. Dude's almost on par with Joss Whedon when it comes to quips. To add another to the list there's "Perhaps you feel you're being treated unfairly."

One of my favorite parts of Anakin's character is his wit (exemplified in The Clone Wars) and relatively dry delivery, especially as Vader. Quips, yeah, those are great, totally fits the character. But puns? It felt uncomfortable and shoehorned. Like, were the writers wanting us to laugh while someone was being strangled?
