Then what Obi Wan meant to say was "I am a jedi. therefor I've never possessed anything." not "I don't seem to remember........" . And using that same rationale, it never was Anakin's droid either so to invoke it makes your own argument.inconsistent The truth is that R2-D2 was always Padme's droid but which happened to go on a missions with a Jedi whose attachment to her is supposed to be a secret It was a pedantic way to answer the question, in light of the history shown in the prequels which suggests that if Obi Wan was ever to rememeber any particular droids it might be the golden protocol droid and blue domed R2 unit that claim to be seeking him out even though his being there is supposed to be secret. Otherwise it's fine.
