The cunning warrior also holds off Dooku admirably, after being forced to take on a superior opponent alone when his partner is disabled. This when he's been shocked with Force-lightning (yes, due to his foolhardiness). Again, the cunning warrior gleefully chooses to ignore the advice of his master and rush headlong into battle, before any other action occurs. That isn't cunning, it's reckless. His master is wounded as a result of his action, and he attempts to save his master's life. That isn't cunning, it's survival instinct. He then presses the attack against an obviously superior opponent. That isn't cunning, it's folly. Anakin also shows cunning when it comes to rescuing Shmi. Up until she dies, that is. Much as is the case with Vader, Anakin has one major flaw as a tactician: his temper. He is cunning until he loses his temper, and it is getting increasingly hard for him to control his temper. His subterfuge is a possible instantiation of "cunning" but it's little more than glorified stealth. Using the enemies fortifications against them is cunning. Turning an enemy's weapon against him is cunning. Turning a disadvantage into an advantage is cunning. He sneaks in and then flies into a fury. That isn't cunning. The "general" hasn't been declared a "general" yet, because the Clone Wars have just begun at the end of AOTC. The "general" hasn't even had the chance to interact with the man he supposedly served because the Clone Wars have just begun at the end of AOTC. Ergo, we haven't seen "General Kenobi" on-screen, and there is no guarantee that we will see it in Ep. III. Which is what I said earlier. What WOULD be enough to "justify" the characterizations to you? The tactician alluded to in ANH. The general of an army alluded to in ANH. Characterization continuity between the OT and the PT. Not too much to ask for, I'm afraid, and certainly not what has been given to us thusfar. Again, this could change in Ep. III, but there is so much ground that GL will have to cover that the likelihood of these necessary bits occurring is slim.
