    I've posted this in the lit, thought you guys would like it do

    The heroes of starwars go through many stages. Including the EU

    Joseph Campbell's book, The Hero with a thousands faces.

    This book is about heros all around the world, all Times, and literature. Hey the cover has a pic of Luke on it from ESB. Great book

    in the book it explians the corse of an hero.

    1. The call to Adventure
    2. The crossing of the first Threshold
    3. The belly of the whale
    4. The road of trials
    5. The meeting with the goddes
    6. Woman as the temptress
    7. Atonement with the father
    8. Apotheosis
    9. The ulitmate boon

    I think they both go through it.

    Luke:
    1. The call to Adventure: buying the droids, finding Leia's message
    2. The crossing of the first Threshold: leaving Tatooine
    3. The belly of the whale: inside the Death Star
    4. The road of trials: the battles of Yavin and Hoth, Bespin encounter, fighting the Rancor and the sail barge
    5. The meeting with the goddess: the character whose spirit motivates the hero could be Yoda or Leia
    6. Woman as the temptress: Darth Vader is the tempter
    7. Atonement with the father: obvious
    8. Apotheosis: he becomes a Jedi
    9. The ulitmate boon: defeating the Empire, rejoining his friends at Endor, seeing the spirits of the dead Jedi

    Anakin's journey is less straightforward, but there's another movie to go:
    1. The call to Adventure: Qui-Gon offering to take him to Coruscant
    2. The crossing of the first Threshold: leaving Tatooine
    3. The belly of the whale: Genosis arena
    4. The road of trials: pod race, battle of Naboo, speeder chase through Coruscant, droid factory, battle of Genosis
    5. The meeting with the goddess: the character whose spirit motivates the hero could be Padme, Obi-Wan or Yoda
    6. Woman as the temptress: the tempters will be Palpatine and Dooku, presumably
    7. Atonement with the father: Anakin atones with his son
    8. Apotheosis: Anakin is once again a Jedi and not a Sith
    9. The ulitmate boon: kills the tempter, his soul finds redemption
