The films so far have briefly touched on the power the Force has over events in the galaxy. In Episode IV, Luke asks if the Force controls his actions. "Partially," Obi-Wan tells him. "But it also obeys your commands." Episode I gave us the idea that the Force was somehow guiding the events. "Finding him was the Will of the Force. I have no doubt of that." "They [the midiclorians] continually speak to us, telling us the Will of the Force." However, I think it's going a bit overboard to suggest that the Force controls everything that happens in the galaxy, as if all the characters are puppets on strings. Anakin's turn to the Dark Side is often said to be the Will of the Force. It is not. The Will of the Force is that Anakin brings balance to the Force, not by helping the Sith take over, but by ridding the universe of the Sith. His turn to the darkside is in complete defiance of the Will of the Force. The characters in Star Wars are not helpless tools of the Force, the Force is their tool. This is a story about people making decisions that affect the courses of their own lives and of the galaxy. To make the whole story into essentially characters performing a divine script is to lose the idea of this truly being a look at human behavior.
