I hope I'm not going against the wishes of the moderators by creating this thread, but the last thread I made about "Prequel trollers have ruined the movies for me" was obviously creating too much trouble. I'm creating this thread solely to understand how lucas portrayed the force in the prequels. You see, what I explained earlier in my previous thread was that I didn't understand why Anakin, a generally good person, would go killing tons of innocent people just to save a loved one. Is this because of the force? I know that Yoda states in the phantom menace that emotional attachment to people can lead to the darkside. It's basically implied throughout the whole prequel trilogy (and Star Wars universe) that people not trained in the force become emotionally attached all the time, and they don't usually turn into people just as super-evil as the sith but without force powers. Do you think when the person in charge of script (was that Lucas?) wrote that line, he was trying to imply that the force can change jedi's emotions more drastically than those not trained in the force who are emotionally attached to someone and fear losing them? Just because I think it would help me to understand the prequels better to know, is there anywhere where it states that the force influences people like this in the prequels? Thanks.
