Lovely pic sis! *swoon* Kidan - You raise some interesting points. All the Jedi are intrinsically attached to the Jedi I'd agree with this - in, I think, the ROTS novel (I might be wrong) - Obi-wan claims he'd strike down Yoda if need be and Yoda confirms he'd do the same to Obi-Wan. Yet in AOTC (film) Dooku escapes becuase Yoda saves Obi and Ani from being crushed by a pillar. Not that I didn't want him to! But part of me always thinks wouldn't he have been more likely to sacrifice them for the greater good. For a chance to stop Dooku? The problem is that they were attached to the wrong things. The emotional attachments, the familial attachments, the attachments to neighbors, these are needed to remind them just what it means to be human per se. Otherwise they are nothing more than automaton, lording over those without the force. Although some Jedi did have these attachments - Qui and Tahri, Obi and Siri, Anakin and Padme...the problem was having to deny or hide these attachments.
