I'm sure that in such a vast forum, this has already been discussed, and if anyone knows where please link. This line always confused me and seems to be the exact opposite of Yoda's description of Obi-Wan in ESB: "This one. A long time have I watched. All his life as he looked away to the future. To the horizon. Never his mind on Where. He. Was. hmm? What he was doing. hmm." But the TPM line makes it sound as though Yoda saw Obi-Wan as too present-focused and not considering the future enough. The only thing I can think of is that Obi-Wan was using some kind of group lecture of Yoda's as an excuse for his lack of concentration in the moment. Maybe Yoda used to give lectures to younglings about considering the future and wasn't personally directed to just Obi-Wan. What is your take on this?
