Even though they are portrayed this way in the movies? Like in the beginning of AOTC when they're chatting about Padme? Or after saving Palpatine when they were cracking jokes with each other? You mean like when he was trying to smooth things over between Anakin and the Council? "Anakin I am on your side". You mean like this scene? OBI-WAN: I am concerned for my Padawan. He is not ready to be given this assignment on his own yet. YODA: The Council is confident in this decision, Obi-Wan. MACE WINDU: The boy has exceptional skills. OBI-WAN: But he still has much to learn, Master. His abilities have made him...arrogant. YODA: Yes, yes. It's a flaw more and more common among Jedi. Too sure of themselves they are. Even the older, more experienced ones. MACE WINDU: Remember, Obi-Wan. If the prophecy is true, your apprentice is the only one who can bring the Force back into balance. or after the Council gave Anakin the assignment to spy on Palpatine Obi-Wan went to Yoda and Mace and said this: OBI-WAN: Anakin did not take to his assignment with much enthusiasm. We knew, but Kenobi didn't. He didn't witness it and Anakin didn't tell him.
