There is no doubt that the fall of Anakin Skywalker is the major tragedy of the Star Wars saga, and the demise of his marriage to Padme/Amidala. Then there is the tragedy of the fall of the Republic and destruction and end of the Jedi order. But one tragedy that is often overlooked is that of Luke and Leia never really getting to know their parents. Leia only has vague memories of Padme-Amidala. Just images and feelings. She was beautiful, but sad Luke had no memories of Amidala. Luke basically only gets to meet and know his father mainly as Darth Vader. He gets to meet his father, Anakin Skywalker as he is about to die. Though Anakin is saved, Luke only got to know his real father briefly, then had watch him die. Likewise, Leia basically never knew her real father in that of Anakin, and only got to realize the truth upon hearing it from Luke. She never got the opportunity to see Anakin's face or talk to him. Her only memory of her real father would be that of the evil lord, Darth Vader. So Luke and Leia never really got to know their real parents. What a tragedy, though they do go on in life, and create a new future and legacy for the Skywalker family. How great it would have been had Leia got to see her real father face-to-face as Luke did. Too bad Anakin died before she could meet him. I do wish Lucas had allowed Anakin to live long enough for Leia to meet him. And how I wish Anakin could have said not only "Tell your sister...., to Luke, but also say, "My daughter" Darth Sin!
