If the reveal at the end makes TESB part of the TODV then why not ANH? Vader was no more tragic or sympathetic in one film than the other. He's neither of these things until at the earliest the reveal. The relevance of all this to viewing order is that ANH and almost all of TESB are telling a different story than the rest of the films and as someone wisely posted recently ROTJ is really a far better sequel to the PT than it is to Eps 4 and 5. Hence, 45 1236.
