ANH is my least favorite of the SW movies, Stryphe. I didn't really get into SW until ESB hit the theaters. I thought it was an OK movie before then--and I was a kid, so I enjoyed playing with the toys and getting my mother to fix my hair like Princess Leia's--but if ANH had been the only SW film ever made, and the complexities of Anakin Skywalker's character had not been revealed in ESB and ROTJ, I doubt I would still be a fan. skycrawler: What would I have done? I would have made allowances for the fact that Anakin was a slave and already had fear and anger. I would have worked two or three times as hard with him on emotional control as I would with the other padawans, who only had to be taught not to develop fear and anger. Instead of telling him "A Jedi must not know fear or anger because it is the path to the Dark Side", I would have told him, "I understand why you're afraid and angry, and those emotions are OK--it is what you do with the fear and anger that might not be OK, so let us teach you how to release it in healthy ways." I also might have assigned Anakin two masters--Kenobi and one who was more experienced, such as Yoda.
