I think this is what does it for me. I thought the sequels would be some of Luke being *the* Jedi, but no. I knew he was making an appearance, but seeing him wreck shop was spectacular. I'm surprised to see here his appearance being somewhat contentious. I agree with the argument about not having everything tied to the same 4 characters in all of Star Wars, but who else would take the child? There's no more Jedi per se. Some may have escaped Order 66, but they've been hiding for over a generation and are kind of old. Luke is the only person walking around openly calling himself a Jedi. He's probably the only one strong enough to have sensed the child that far away. I assume he sensed him on the rock and has been searching since then. I mean, the shape of the galaxy has been affected by a 'Skywalker' for nearly two generations. So it's kind of hard to forget them. We remember real life big figures in history from centuries ago, so it doesn't really bother me, especially given that the destruction of the Death Star (and Alderaan) are still fresh in people's minds. 5 Link to comment
