Failing to prevent someone else from committing a crime is not wrong on either the legal or the moral side of things. Actually, and I know this really isn't the point of this thread, but I think everyone has chewed up and spit out that quote, in the US legal system if you know a crime is going to take place, you are duty-bound to report it or you can be held as an accomplice to the crime. I believe in the UK you can actually be held as a party to the crime. Back to the topic at hand, I think it's funny that this actually surprises anyone. Lucas has been altering his memory of these movies as much as he's altered the movies themselves. I mean, who honestly could have said that these movies were about Darth Vader's fall and redemption before the prequels? No one, but Lucas insists that was his plan all along. Oh really? But Vader wasn't even Luke's father until a writing team concocted the idea during pre-production for Empire Strikes Back! So Lucas is full of crap, and has been for a long time. What he's doing is trying to leave the impression that this is his saga alone, when the truth is that many other people, many other talented writers, directors, and producers, had big parts to play in sculpting the original trilogy.
