    In Revenge of the Sith, we hear Darth Sidious say to Lord Vader;

    "To cheat death is a power only one has achieved, but if we work together I know we can discover the secret"

    Well, I feel really stupid now.

    The reason?

    I only noticed that they must have found the secret, otherwise, no Anakin ghost in Return of the Jedi.

    Well, thats my post.

    The Sith immortality secret STOPPED death, and was Physical immortality.

    WHat Anakin, and the Jedi, learned was Spiritual Immortality, AFTER death

    Obi-Wan and Yoda helped Anakin retain his identity when he died in ROTJ. Lucas has confirmed this.

    "This little scene where he burns his father's body, it wasn't originally in the script. But I decided it gave more closure in terms of Luke's relationship to his father, letting go of his father. Even though later on, as we get to the end of the movie, as he joins the Force, he was able to retain his original identity, it's because of Obi-Wan and Yoda, who learnt how to do that: how to join the Force at will and then retain your identity. But it was his 'identity as he was when he died as Anakin Skywalker.'"

    --George Lucas, ROTJ DVD Commentary.

    To confirm Master Ousleys confirmation ;)
