I never really had a problem with the Jedi in the OT. It's the PT and TCW where I think they were portrayed as more morally ambiguous. And if I was in a position of power, such as a senator, during the re-construction of the Republic following the Battle of Endor, I would say "oh hell no" to the prospect of allowing the Jedi as much prestige or power as they had before. + A Jedi allegedly orders the clone army - the Jedi have an opportunity to shoot down using the army but instead choose to utilize it for convenience. + A Jedi falls to the Dark Side and begins The Clone Wars via which Palpatine ascends to the position of Emperor. + Anakin Skywalker, hero of the Clone Wars, joins the Emperor and replaces Dooku - himself a Jedi - to help cement Palpatine's power. + Jedi have become Sith at least once in the past and have created galaxy wide crises (more times in the EU). + Luke goes AWOL during the biggest fight for the fate of the galaxy, turns himself over to the Emperor voluntarily so that he can go be with his dad (would anyone buy this?) + Jedi are okay with keeping slave army - Yes, they are slaves. They were sold to the Republic as property. + Remaining Jedi stayed in hiding and didn't help the Rebels out in any way. + Jedi were complete ***** to Ahsoka and threw her under the bus to appease the senate. The last one affects more the audience than onlookers IU, but some of these - particularly the repeating pattern of Jedi turning to the Dark Side and threatening the Galaxy - just seems like it would lead to anti-Jedi legislature similar to the anti-mutant fear in X-Men. If they are going to tear down the Post-ROTJ EU, that seems like the route I'd like to see them go, if they are going to start anew. Luke shouldn't be a hero... He blew up the first Death Star but in ROTJ he didn't help out at all. He snuck off in the night and surrendered to the Imperials, and once it becomes public knowledge that he's Vader's kid, that there were Jedi that were still alive that didn't contribute to the Rebellion in any way, and with what had transpired with Jedi turning to the Dark Side and helping Palpatine's rise to power... I would think that Luke would have one hell of a time battling public opinion and re-establishing the Order.
