Is Darth Maul no longer bad@$$? Is Jar Jar no longer annoying? As time has passed, has your opinion of any character changed? Explain which character and why. Personally, I have a new appreciation for Obi-Wan after seeing the prequels. Of course we don't see his long-term reaction to Anakin's fall on-screen, but from what I can infer (without reading EU) he handled it rather well. He didn't seem too distraught or depressed, and still managed to be optimistic about the roles Luke and Leia could play to redeem Anakin. So has my opinion of Obi-Wan changed? No not necessarily, because I've always liked him, but I like him a lot more now that the prequels have been released.
