The TCW Anakin is very likable. While mostly, the PT Anakin is not...It's like these characters aren't even the same person. Why is this important? If Anakin was a "good character" in the prequels, I think it would have made his fall more stunning and his redemption more realistic. I also believe that the prequels would have been held in higher esteem if the main protagonist had the qualites that the TCW Anakin carries (such as leadership, heroism, selflessness, etc.) Was this a failure of Lucas that he didn't develop a good and likeable Anakin in the prequels? Is there any comparison at all, that the TCW Anakin is greater than the PT Anakin?
