heh, fair enough. I see much symbolism in comparing Qui-Gon as a mentor inversely to Sidious, then back 'up' with Obi-Wan in ANH. Qui-Gon is clearly the Master Anakin should have had. Sidious fills a void in ROTS, where Obi-Wan and Yoda succesfully train Luke in the OT. If I'm making sense. Qui-Gon, ROTS Sidious, and ANH Obi-Wan have plenty of mirrors, which I'm pretty sure was intentional. There is so much weight to this line after all the analysing we have done. I can't recall many off the top of my head, but one example is three main apprentices of Jedi and Sith (Obi-Wan, Anakin, Luke. Maul, Dooku, Vader). Also, Obi-Wan killing the apprentice Maul arguably leads to his Jedi knighting, Anakin helping kill Mace leads to his Sith knighting. And then there's "Be careful of your friend, Palpatine" stated by Obi-Wan, "Be careful of the Jedi, Anakin" by Palpatine. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Agreed, I think Mace does mean well. I feel the deleted AOTC scene with Mace and Obi-Wan discussing Anakin should have been included in the film. Mace is warmer, and seems far more confident in Anakin than in any scene shown onscreen. Perhaps this was intended, but I doubt it. His main mistake in Revenge IMO is not taking Anakin with him. You can see when Anakin arrives at the office Mace sees him as an ally. He doesn't see it coming. But I'm going off-topic.
