Is it just me or is Lucas deliberately making 23-25 that the age of each main character's major decision that is a turning point in his/her life? Obi-wan is around 25 when CHOOSES to train Anakin. Padme is 24 when she CHOOSES to marry Anakin. Anakin is 23 when he CHOOSES to join the dark side. Luke is 23 when he CHOOSES to refuse the dark side. Is this deliberate? Does George Lucas believe this time of our lives is when we make our most important decisions. This is usually the time after finishing college and deciding what to do for the rest of our lives (ex: start a family, concentrate on a career, move away, etc) What do you think the importance of this age to Star Wars is?
