Yeah, Anakin is portrayed in Ep. 1 and Ep. 2 as a whiney little b****. A far cry from the angry, dark character of immense power and evil that was James Earl Jones in the original series. Choosing to give Anakin a short temper, making him a control freak, or making him a regular - even noble - guy who's experiences have turned him into an angry cynic (my personal favorite) would have been far preferable than the spoiled brat Lucas has served us. The old and new visions of Anakin just don't mesh well.

I agree; but at least Anakin's fall has an ethical dimension to it (a simple minded one, of course) unlike some of those celebrated heroes from the EU who become radiated, posioned, whatever into the Dark Side and thus become 'evil' without having exercised a trace of deliberation.

 

Perhaps what feels lacking in the transformation of Anakin into Vader is that Anakin is practically still a child at the time of the ep.III events: He appears in the story, if all those ep.III 'spoiler' sites have at least a grain of truth, as a gullible youngster. 'The fall' is attributed to his arrogance but judging by how easily Palpatine snatches him to his side, he was, well, quite an idiot. Which makes all his 'great potential' irrelevant because at that level of wisdom he would only make a reckless stupid jedi master who'd get himself killed sooner or later. In his first important duel he already lost an arm!

 

This is not to assess this character as a consistent 'personality' because those things are only side-interests of Lucas: But when we see the movies we involuntarily 'arrange' what we see into a distinct person. And that person is an idiot; whether Lucas intended it or not.

Zwangvolle Plage!

luke, he revived the jedi order pretty much single handedly

 

Bull crap...

 

he would have been ashes if it weren't for Old Ben... I mean in the end Obi-Wan was giving Yoda orders to train Luke!

It's kinda interesting how the two of them are bosom buddies in the afterlife, but when they were alive, they hardly spoke to each other. :p

Anakin whines but he backs it up with action... you forget whilst he is whining his arse off about Obi Wan turning Padme away from him he is choking her ass :wacko:

 

yeah that makes him real buff... lets go force choke are girlfriends...

 

Who said it made him buff?

 

I simply put it that he whipes out the Jedi order all except for Mace Windu, Yoda, and Obi Wan.

 

Face facts if thats the kill count he has under his belt for Jedi, he had to be something half decent.

Sith all the way (w00t)

Yes, well apparently the Sith will never achieve the eternal life that they seek (Episode III encounter) :

 

 

In a glass observation dome on a medical station in the Polis Massa Belt, Yoda speaks to the Force as he has done for a long time. The Force answers him with the voice of Qui-Gon Jinn.

 

Qui-Gon Jinn tells Yoda not to blame himself for what happened but Yoda insists that he had been too old, too rigid, he had not noticed the changes in the galaxy...

 

Yoda had not let The Order change with it, he never learnt the full depth of The Force. Qui-Gon defends the old Master. He also suggests that Yoda will have a lot of time to learn the ways of the Force and - with his help - he will be able to join with the Force and yet retain his consciousness, and, in time, maybe even physical form.

 

However, this sounds to Yoda like the idea of eternal life. Qui-Gon agrees and reminds him that eternal life is exactly what the Sith are looking for, but they'll never find it...

 

Qui-Gon states: "...by the release of self, not the exaltation of self. It comes through compassion, not greed. Love is the answer to the darkness."

 

Yoda admits he underestimated Qui-Gon's potential as a Jedi Master.

 

So Yoda decides to learn from Qui-Gon. Bowing, he declares,

 

"Qui-Gon, your apprentice, I gratefully become."
