I'm enjoying the debates going on in this thread. The Mortis trilogy has inspired a plethora of questions about the nature of the Force itself that was only rarely explored in the movies. However polarizing it may be, this arc has succeeded in making us think about the very concept of balance between the Light and the Dark Side that seemingly tied the six movies together, i.e. the prophecy that the Chosen One would bring balance to the Force. I applaud Lucas and the TCW crew for tackling these esoteric concepts of the Force, even if the execution was very questionable at times. As folks like @07jonesj and @Jedi Master Chuck have noted, Qui-Gon Jinn's appearance and the need to follow the so-called "living Force" is a prime topic of debate with regard to the beliefs of the PT Jedi Order and the Sith Order. Drawing the contrast between the living Force concept versus the Jedi's own rigid belief system made me realize that the Order was definitely flawed and that it was likely the will of the Force that it be destroyed along with the Sith in order to truly bring balance to the Force, as evidenced in RotJ. The birth of Anakin Skywalker from the Force itself, as jones pointed out, seems to support this; even though all the choices he made were his own, he was ultimately a tool of fate, of the Force itself, and destined to one day bring balance. I understand that many aren't too keen on the more philosophical aspects of Mortis, and that the arc could probably have just been a single episode (Overlords) without suffering in quality, but it was nonetheless interesting to see the series tackle these ideas about balance and fate. I agree that the ending of Ghosts of Mortis where Anakin sees his future and chooses to join the Son was a headscratcher, among other things, but ultimately these flaws don't take away from my overall enjoyment of the trilogy. I'm definitely fond of the Ancients concept in fantasy and sci-fi, so the story of the Ones was fascinating to me, especially as they were expanded upon at the end of the Fate of the Jedi series. The environment of Mortis was certainly one of the arc's high points, with its ever-changing landscapes between Light and Dark reflecting the dichotomy of the Light and Dark Side embodied by the entities of the Daughter and the Son, respectively. My favorite scenes all occurred in Overlords, such as the appearance of Qui-Gon's ghost, Ahsoka's future self, and the scene where Anakin brings the Son and the Daughter to their proverbial knees. If nothing else, one thing the Mortis trilogy got right was the fact that there was absolutely no mention of midichlorians.
