Ok, I really enjoyed ROTS, but I believe it could have handled some plot points a little more effectively. Obi Wans' revelation in this movie just didn't have the cognitive impact it could have had...I mean, let's review: Anakin: "I HATE YOU!" Obi Wan: "You were my brother, Anakin. I loved you!" Wasn't the emphasis off? It could have been so much better if only Obi had said first "I loved you" (pause) "YOU WERE MY BROTHER!" That would have the audience gasping w/revelation. But as it is, I feel like this line just went over most people's heads as they were busy sobbing. Yes, yes, it was sad. But where is the shock? The awe? Fans have been waiting for this moment for a long time. I remember hearing theories that Obi was Owen's brother years ago. Now we see it's true and it adds a whole new dimension to the saga. It ties in with the timeless Cain & Abel story. It makes sense, too. This film is the Skywalker story and Obi Wan always played too important of a role for him to have been an honest Kenobi. Another issue I have with the way the scene played out is Anakin's non-reaction. It's almost like, "Yeah I know. Somehow I've always known, so I can't be distracted from my pain and suffering." (glare) "You didn't think this would make me like you any better, did you?" Which is good continuity in a way. We see from his reaction and, later, his daughter's, that in the Star Wars universe, undeclared siblings is no biggie. But ofcourse, questions of parenting is much more sensitive...as it is to date. All perfectly logical but unfortunate. Still, Lucas kind of killed the suspense when he hints, almost-saying-it-but-not-saying-it, this truth as Obi Wan protests to Yoda that he cannot kill Anakin...he's "like" a brother. So, we become familiar with this idea gradually until there just isn't any shock with the actual declaration. Why, Lucas? In ESB, Vader's line was so shocking becoz there was no hint of it leading up to the act. We were blown away.
