Note: This isn't intended as a hate thread. Rather to make an assessment of whether or not Anakin fit the standards set up by Jedi. I notice that Anakin didn't fit many of the Jedi qualities that were considered good at the time. Beside being powerful... Anakin was: arrogant too attached Married (a big no in the Jedi Order) easily lost temper (often upset) occasionally tapped into the darkside out for vengeance (against Doku) sometimes a jerk (although it seemed common amongst the Jedi) lusted for power mass murder against a tribe of people* These were there during Rots and before so basically they defined his entire Jedi career. These are kind of came later on and were special circumstances* but still showed that he had the potential for: mass murderer (of the Jedi) treason (against the Jedi) domestic abuse became an evil Sith Lord So was Anakin a bad Jedi by the Jedi standards? Edit: I didn't intend to include Anakin's actions after turning as part of the assessment because obviously he is bad after that. So only include his actions before turning for you assessment.
