Doesn't mean I have to like it. It makes Luke look like he has absolutely no dignity whatsoever. "I'm so desperate for a mate that I'd rather be with a woman who wants to kill me than be alone." I hated Twilight for similar reasons. Bella needed the **** slapped out of her. There are far, far better tropes if you'd rather Star Wars not establish new ones. Which FWIW, it's not unique to trend setting. Leia was a very new type of female character in 1977 and Lucas was criticized for making her such a feisty smartass. But that's also what makes her a great character.
