These are the words of Old Ben to Luke on how he failed in training Anakin/Vader. He says this with great regret, and he admits his arrogance and his failings as a mentor. He is also basically saying that Yoda would have done better in training Anakin This made 100% sense in the OT. Yoda is the wise old mentor with great powers who is there to give good advice - he also succeeds in training Luke. In the PT we learn that Yoda also lost an apprentice to the dark-side - Dooku! With this information, shouldn't OBW have realized that it wasn't just his fault - it was the Jedi as a collective. According to the OS, even Qui-Gon lost an apprentice to the dark-side. The line we see in the PT: Yoda Dooku Qui-Gon Obi-Wan Anakin All the mentors failed (except for Dooku ironically enough). Yoda taught Dooku who turned to the dark-side. Qui-Gon taught someone who turned to the dark-side, and OBW taught Anakin who turned to the dark-side. Not only does this give more pathos to Yoda's words in AOTC on arrogance: "a flaw more and more common, even amongst the older more experienced ones" I posted this in the saga-forum because it is related to the saga, but if the mods find it more suitable in the PT-forum, can you please direct it there?
