How much, if any, blame should Obi-Wan get for the downfall of Anakin and subsequently the Republic? I love Obi-Wan, I think he's great, but I see a lot of arrogance in him in TPM then carried over to AotC. Initially, he didn't trust Anakin, but agreed to train him anyway out of respect for Qui-Gon. I don't think he ever developed trust in Ani. In AotC, he is very critical. He doesn't listen to Ani, and he doesn't understand him. Point is, Obi had no business training Ani. He was not ready for the responsibility, something he later admits. He just didn't know what to do. Of course, Ani is ultimately responsible for his own choices, but if Obi-Wan had been a bit more supportive of him, would he have taken a different path? Would he have been better off if Qui-Gon had lived and trained him?
