Star Wars' interior plot arc throughout all six movies is a tale about accepting oneself, as well as others, for all of their human imperfections. If you look at the prequels, you see a very strict and repressed Jedi order. Jedi are not allowed to have attachments or families. They are also not allowed to recognize human emotions like fear or anger. In contrast, we also have a Sith/dark-side that is enslaved to these emotions. Sith allow their actions to be the will of their first impulses and insecurities, therefore their character is tainted in evil. It could be interpreted that Anakin falls to the dark side because of his understandable personal struggles being ignored and neglected by a repressed Jedi order understandably pre-occupied by one of the most crucial times for the Republic and galaxy. Anakin sees the dark side as a place where he might be able to be his full, human self as well as openly care for Padme and his family, but he knows it isn't entirely the correct path, which is why he is already suggesting over throwing Palpatine in Ep3. However, his frustration and insecurities, unleashed by the dark side suggest that even after over throwing Palpatine he would still be at the mercy of the dark side. This leads us to Luke. Luke is the most pivotal character in Star Wars because he shows Vader that you can be morally good, while at the same time being human and having attachments, anger and fear. Luke is attached to his friends and his father. He disobeys Yoda and Obi-Wan for them. He fights Vader with malice and anger when Vader mentions turning Leia. Luke also tries to murder the Emperor when he threatens the rebellion and Luke's friends. Vader sees all of this and tosses the Emperor, redeeming himself and fulfilling his destiny, saved by his son. Check this out -- Qui-Gon understands, or appears to understand all of the same stuff as Luke. It's clear from his actions in TPM that he keeps his distance from the Jedi council, while at the same time being a force very much for good, as well as being very wise and knowledgeable in the ways of the force and the light side. In TPM, Qui-Gon continuously explores the concept of "symbiotic circles" and the "living" force. It seems as though he is wise to something that the Jedi council seems blind to. It seems as though he is a well rounded force user of the light side, the same key that Luke was for Vader. This means that Anakin probably would have found exactly what he needed in Qui-Gon and never turned. I'm sure Anakin also would have felt comfortable talking to Qui-Gon about Padme.
