Very, very well put. I like the addition of Qui-Gon. He became one of my favorite characters. He also shows how the "square" Jedi had become too complacent and dogmatic, too focused on the Unifying Force and not focused enough on the Living Force. We see that mistake rectified in the OT, with Yoda and Obi-Wan being much more focused on the Living Force than they were in the PT. I would have been upset if the "squares" had turned out to be right. The overly conformist "one-size-fits-all" training chaps against everything I know about teaching, and people in general. On Obi-Wan: Loved the man in AOTC and ROTS; he annoyed me in TPM. I won't go so far as to say I disliked him, I didn't, but I did get irritated with him.
