Never forget all the currently active circumstance modifiers.

Anakin: So what about me?
Pete: Oh, you need to dodge <roll>... five instant-death guillotine blades. Start rolling.
Anakin: 14.
[SFX]: Slice!
Pete: Juuust made it. Next.
Anakin: Hmmm. I need to improve my odds. I use Force Push to slow the next blade.
Pete: All right, you get a one-off +5 bonus.
Anakin: 11.
[SFX]: Slice!
Pete: Okay, next.
Anakin: Force Sensitivity. I anticipate the blades. 18.
[SFX]: Slice!
Pete: Okay, next.
Anakin: 9.
Pete: Ooooh...
Anakin: Don't forget the Force Sensitivity.

Anakin: The morale bonus. For watching R2 fly.
Pete: ... Right.
