Charlemagne19 One of Luke's major character arcs is the fact that he's full of anger, impatience, and "for bit a nail" he might have ended up becoming a New Darth Vader. Luke chooses the Light but BY A HAIR'S BREADTH. You really DO seem to think that Luke was mostly dark in the films, don't you??? I found Luke to be a whole lot more Light than dark. Yes, he got angry when Vader threatened his sister, and nearly killed Vader because of his concern for Leia. But until that point in the fight, Luke was trying very hard NOT to fight Anakin/Vader. I didn't really see all that much darkness in Luke throughout the rest of the films, except for the scene with the Gamorreans. But you'll notice he didn't hurt or kill them, he merely "distracted" them so he could get past without serious damage to himself or them. And yes, Luke probably could have found a different way to distract him, but I chalk it up to him being rather new at this "Jedi-business." I AM curious though about how others viewed the Luke of the films. Mostly dark? Mostly light? Lightside only by a "hair's breadth"? He's got GREAT capacity for evil in him, just as he has great capacity for good. I see far more good than evil in Luke. However, I will say that since Del Rey got the contract, I've seen Luke do more morally questionable things than he did earlier. This doesn't make a lot of sense either, as one would think that the longer Luke has been a Jedi, the less the likelihood that he would make morally questionable choices. Dingo Luke isn't a saint on a pedestal who embodies all that is good and holy, but someone that struggles with the darkness and deliberately chooses the Light. I will agree that Luke certainly isn't perfect. I agree that like all Jedi he struggles with the darkness sometimes, but he deliberately chooses the Light most often. I don't see Luke as one who is closer to the dark side than most Jedi. Unfortunately, the way in which he has been written lately, especially in DN and LotF and the choices he has been portrayed as making, HAVE made it seem as though Luke's losing his moral compass, and I really, really don't like that at all. Luke should be the one character who does what is right, no matter how difficult...at least most of the time.
