    I believe the crusade was the clone wars. Remember on Tattooine most folks had nothing to do with either the empire or senate they where an outer planet away from the politics and were merely putting up with the empires presence in ANH to prevent "their" war from coming to Tattooine.

    make sense?

    Eeh, don't buy it. Good idea but I think Lucas never really explained it.

    I know some where it is said that Owen was against the fighting and that the had no business with it.

    From the Origional novel published in 1976:

    Luke Skywalker Challenged the Stormtroopers of a Distant Galaxy on a Daring Mission?Where a Force of Life Became the Power of Death!

    Farm chores sure could be dull, and Luke Skywalker was bored beyond belief. He yearned for adventures out among the stars?adventures that would take him beyond the farthest galaxies to distant and alien worlds.

    But Luke got more than he bargained for when he intercepted a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by a dark and powerful warlord. Luke didn't know who she was, but he knew he had to save her?and soon, because time was running out.

    Armed only with courage and with the light saber that had been his father's, Luke was catapulted into the middle of the most savage space war ever...and he was headed straight for a desperate encounter on the enemy battle station known as the Death Star!


    I've said this before , read the book (The prologue quotes from the Journal of the Whills, and says that the Emperor Palpatine is merely a figurehead controlled by the Imperial Bureaucracy, and Leia's quote "They were in the right place at the right time, so naturally they became heros") and you'd never think it work as a film let alone be any good.

    Fearful of having Luke follow Anakin?s path, ?Uncle? Owen and ?Aunt? Beru protected him from his past by telling him that his father, rather than being a Jedi Knight, was a navigator of a spice freighter. Owen also tried to keep him away from the ?crazy old hermit?, ?Ben? Kenobi.

    A few years later, Kenobi had found Luke and his friend Windy alone in the Jundland Wastes. The two youths had tried to ease their boredom by riding Windy's pet dewback around in the Wastes. They had been thrown in one of the canyons and had gotten bruised up. By dusk, Luke and Windy still hadn't found their way out of the canyon until they were discovered by Ben Kenobi. Kenobi guided them back to the Lars farm, Owen told Luke and his friend to go inside so they would be out of earshot, the he confronted and berated Kenobi.

    The reason for Owen's anger was that Kenobi had attempted to give Anakin's lightsaber to Luke, since he felt that Luke was old enough and should be allowed to have it. Owen, refused to allow it because he believed the Jedi path was a destructive one, told Kenobi how he didn't want Luke to make the same mistakes Anakin did, stating how he felt Anakin should have never left his mother in slavery and gotten involved with the "damned foolish idealistic Jedi crusaders" in the first place. He vehemently told Kenobi to leave and to stay away.

    Luke however, being Anakin's son, had wild dreams for a different and adventurous future. Despite Owen's vague promises that he would sometime be free to live his own life, he always prevented Luke from leaving the isolation and anonymity of life on the planet Tatooine, claiming his importance to the farm. This stance sometimes brought turmoil between their relations since Luke's hopes were never satisfied.
