"No he was not being trained to kill him. Obi-Wan let himself get killed by Vader. He put up a good fight. Luke was being trained to face him. Never at any time did Obi-Wan or Yoda mention the word kill." Luke "I can't kill my own father" Obi-wan "then the emperor has already won. You were our only hope" Luke"there is still good in him" Obi-wan "hes more machine now then man. twisted and evil" "Fans just assume that Luke is supposed to kill him without enough evidence." See the above quotes. Conversely there is nothing in any of the movies that suggest that Ben and Yoda want Luke to redeem Anakin. Never do they mention this, if that is there goal you would think they would say so. By the end of Ep3 they will believe Anakin to be beyond redepemtion. Hence why Ben considers him dead and would send his own son to kill him. "That is why George is making the PT. Why did he need to face him? Because he is the chosen one. To redeem him. To get inside his head." When GL made the OT he hadn't thought up the 'chosen one' concept. "No, Dooku nor Darth Vader are the lead antagonists." I suppose now you're going to argue that Palpatine is the main villian in ANH? You didn't listen to what I said before. Its possible for a character to be a pawn within the context of the movies world, but cinematically be the main villian. "Like Lucas said the OT is about the redemption of Darth Vader." Lucas says that now. He changes his storys as often as he changes his movies.
