Ah - well I addressed that. I don't agree with Yoda. I don't feel Force visions are granted to be ignored. I also don't feel they are to be acted upon by going to the dark side, lol. But I do think they can be acted upon in a more reasonable fashion. The future is in motion, so they may not come to pass, but seeking a legitimate - light side of the Force - means to thwart them is what should happen, imo. I agree Anakin wanted to be a Jedi - but he blew that when he got married. I can't judge him according to Jedi standards I feel are wrong and the marriage standard was wrong. I can say he was a bad traditional Jedi - sure. But that is meaningless, because I feel the tradition is a bad one. The Jedi don't know if marriage + Jedi will work - they never tried it. Anakin didn't want to undertake some of the discipline and make some of the sacrifices, but I think the generalization that he did neither (at all) goes too far. He did both to some degree. He certainly dedicated the majority of his time, effort and energy to being a Jedi, he had no choice. And I do not recall one instance where he placed his marriage first during the span of time he was effectively carrying out his duties and married. What he did was prove that a Jedi could serve and be married. That it played a role in his fall is not relevant in terms of the marriage itself because many other things played a role as well. He simply chose the wrong means to try and deal with all of it - an evil, despicable, horrible and villainous means. But he didn't have to do that - married or not. But Anakin and Padme were right and 10,000 years of Jedi culture were wrong. Anakin could marry and be a Jedi. He hadn't asked Padme to marry when she fell off the gunship. If he hadn't ever planned to marry her, he would have still loved her and wanted to save her. The marriage itself had nothing to do with that - nor with his killing the Tuskins. Obi-Wan did stop Anakin from making many errors - but that was his role. Padme didn't save Anakin from prosecution - you think the Hutts would prosecute him? Neither the Hutts nor the Republic cared at all - they did nothing to stop the Tuskins from raiding and killing the villagers, nor did they help the villagers in retrieving their loved ones or care when they killed a Tuskin. Tatooine was pretty lawless in that regard.
