Is there any moment in ROTS that supports this? Is there any moment in the OT that even supports this? From the moment Obi-wan see's the recordings of Anakin in the temple, Yoda sends him to kill Anakin, and though Obi-wan does not like the thought of going through with this, he at no point tries to redeam Anakin back to the good side. He heads to Padames apartment where Padame says "You're going to kill him are'nt you" to which Obi-wan replies "He has become a very great threat" . . . does'nt sound much like Obi-wan thought like Luke does at all. He talks briefly to Anakin before the duel, but nothing about trying to turn Anakin back. Perhaps the odd line could have been thrown in about his unborn child, the woman he loves or the person he used to be would support the "Obi-wan once thought like you do" line. Luke feels the good in Anakin, Obi-wan does not, commenting in the OT that Vader is "More machine than man, twisted and evil" Luke tries to turn him back to the good side, thats Lukes whole plan when he turns himself into Vader. He does'nt want to fight or kill him. Maybe if Obi-wan had not sneaked aboard Padames ship on a mission to destroy him, but had instead tracked him down himself and approached him without an egender, Anakin could possibly have been talked back from the brink of destruction. Any thoughts?
