I've often wondered why luke had to face vader in order to be classed as a jedi.? Throughout jedi we are told that he had to face vader but why did he have to in order to be classed as a jedi. And why was it luke and not leia or both when the time was right to face vader and the emperor. Why was like the only hope? Did they not believe a female jedi was capable. There are strong female jedi in the history of the order. I'm wondering did Lucas feel that fans wouldn't get behind a female jedi and wrote it as being the male who took vader on. But yeah if luke never took him on would he never have been classed as a jedi. Rey became one very quickly in the ST. No one told her she had to face snoke. Or kylo ren.
