Interesting arguement. It really doesn't change anything to me. Yeah the original trilogy does seem about Luke's journey just because it's Vader's complete story doesn't take that away. Luke is part of Anakin's journey.

Welcome, milivella, to SF-Fandom and the Star Wars forum.
I can imagine quite a bit.

Luke lived in a different time and situation to that of the PT. I don't think the story was changed at all that much, though the PT and OT are, in my opinion, different from each other in a more subtle way, that they are of two different styles, I can't argue the argument though because I can't put my finger on the reasons.

Anyway, as Luke was in a different situation to the PT, he could become a Jedi without being an infant at the start of his training. I totally disagree that the PT makes Darth Vader's killing of Palpatine any different. Why should the fact that we know Sith Apprentices kill their masters mean that Vader, who's soul had been changed by that point, want to kill Palpatine as a Sith? He killed Palpatine because he realised the evil Palpatine was.

Right.

Clever observation.

It seems to me an a posteriori justification, but I know it's a widely diffused opinion.

Naturally, mine is only a possibile (I hope interesting in some way) interpretation. And there's room for different interpretations because we can't know for sure what happened in Darth Vader's soul.

My idea is only that the Prequel Trilogy (like Matrix 2&3 in respect to Matrix 1, if it could be possible to do such a similitude here) adds a level beyond the simple opposition good-evil.

However, thank you for the reply.
