Thank you, Rick McCallum... but I beg to differ. This something that I've thought about since TPM came out. Watch Episode 4 (oh, sod it - STAR WARS!) again, and some things don't add up. In particular, Obi Wan meeting Luke... 1) C3PO and R2 don't remember Obi Wan. Ok, so R2 says he's the property of Obi Wan, but the memory-erasing thing sounds a bit fishy. 2) "Strange, I don't recall owning any droids...". Even wise old Obi Wan can't remember them! 3)"I haven't gone by the name Obi Wan since before you were born..." - so he 'becomes' Ben in Ep 3? Then in 'Episode 5'.... How come Vader doesn't cry out "Threepio! What are YOU doing here? What are you up to these days? Fancy a cuppa? We can mull over old times..." during the scene in 'Empire' when Han gest frozen in carbonite? After all, HE made him, didn't he? And finally, in Episode 6... This is a minor point, but on the new DVD version of Jedi, we see a ghostly Hayden C at the end with Yoda and Obi Wan, which makes no sense whatsoever. If Jedis can choose what they look like in death, why doesn't Obi Wan come back as Ewan McGregor? Sebastian Shaw would be soooo pissed if he was still alive! I'm hoping Revenge of the Sith addresses some of this, but I get the impression Lucas has been making this all up as he goes along!
