    He started Shooting because he had to after wandering distractedly in their direction. Which is more beneficial to his escape, getting closer to them as he watches Ben fight Vader, or shoot the only guys in the hanger, and the door control preventing more from pursuing?

    He was much better off post sacrifice.

    The point was they didn't have to wait for Obi-Wan any longer.

    Why would that be bad? If Obi wan lived, what would've happened?

    Why are you getting all this info from?

    Watch the film, you can see it with your own eyes!

    Luke was running straight for the Falcon until he saw Ben, stopped running immediately and started slowly walking in that direction instead.

    Ben saw that and immediately turned to Vader and closed his eyes and held his saber up to his face letting Vader slice through him.

    Luke yells "NOOO!"

    The Stormtroopers turn their attention in Luke's direction and firing, which Luke returns fire.

    Han yells to Luke to "Shoot the door Kid!"

    Luke shoots the door control which causes the blast door to seal, cutting off the hanger bay.

    Ben through the force tells Luke to run, and he finally does.

    Aayla Secura was in both EU and ROTS, she's walking through the planet Felucia, and all of a sudden she turns around to be gunned down by Clone Commander Bly and accouple other troopers from the 327th star corps.

    I want Old Age Luke dying as he watches the twin sunset on Tatooine. No longer a kid or young adult, he realizes that Tatooine holds something to him and his family, and after goodbyes to everyone he ventures alone by the will of the Force. He's kept up Old Ben's hut, and watches the sunset one last time. We don't have to see him die, but make sure its implied he's returned to die. This would ideally be Episode IX also.

    No way, Luke nor his Father could stand the place, I can't see him accepting it at the end like that.

    I predict he will go like Yoda, peacefully become one with the force. Some new villain taking out Luke? I don't think so, not unless he goes out like Obi-Wan on his own accord. Obi-Wan wanted Luke to see Vader strike him down. Maybe Luke does the same passing on the torch to a new hero/padawan. Just can't see the greatest hero in cinema taken out by a new threat early in a new movie. I don't see a funeral pyre in his future, he will die on-screen and will join the force. Also I don't think Jedi who learn this technique can do it forever. Qui Gon learned it first and we don't hear a peep out of him in the OT, unless I missed something in Lucas' remakes.

    Do not fear death. Fear leads to the darkside. Joining with the force is a very suitable ending for our hero. No chump-arse villain is gonna take him out though!

    Ben was in total control the entire time and completely manipulated Vader. Ben knew what the outcome would be all along. He joined the force, created motivation in Luke & gave Vader an empty victory leaving nothing but his robes. Vader steps on the robes as if puzzled indicating at the time he was not familiar with the technique of joining the force. Vader it believed it to be the "End of Kenobi" when in fact he had achieved a sort of immortality AND passed the torch to a younger more capable Jedi.

    Who says we need to see him die? You can just as easily let it be assumed he passes happy in old age.

    If it doesn't happen on screen, it will be ambiguous and the EU will eventually do the deed. I'd rather it happen on film so it can do his character justice.

    If he is to die, it should be on screen.
    Having Luke Skywalker, of all the people, die offscreen would just be insulting to the character.

    And if he is to die, he should die in a manner that makes certain he's dead.

    The problem? The EU would be all over it and bring him back and kill him themselves. There has to be a finality for Luke on screen out of respect to the character. Nothing ambiguous about it.

    Peacefully. He should die like Yoda had the chance to -- peacefully.

    Granted it would make sense for him to die in battle -- since this is a franchise about Wars in the Stars -- but you would need a character so immensely powerful to kill him that it would make such a character too unwieldy to really have around.

    And having him die in some flurry of attackers would be just as cheesy imho -- Ki-Adi's death is not how Luke's should be handled.

    Ki-Adi didn't get a chance to fight back... Luke WILL get a chance to fight back, and the fight has to be one of the serious action sequences in the film IMO.

    Like an absolute punk. Shot in the back of the head while walking to the temple. Would make people believe that anything could happen in this trilogy ala game of thrones style.

    Actually Ki-Adi-Mundi was able to fight back. He re-deflected a couple blasts before dying. Aayla Secura did not get a chance to fight back. She died before her lightsaber was activated
