Flint Ironstag: All these reasons come down to "Because Lucas just made it up as he went along" and then when he made the prequels just came up with any old plot to shoehorn characters in even though the original trilogy didn't even hint that they were connected.
mariner314: I thought Anakin turned because Obi-Wan got BBQ sauce on his robes
Flint Ironstag: somemoron: What I can't figure out about that fight scene with Dooku is this: Saruman pinches off that giant metal column so that it will land on the unconscious Obi-Wan & Skywalker. So the obvious thing for Yoda to do is... put his lightsaber away and force-push the humungous mass of metal, rather than easily pull or push the 300 pounds or so (tops) of sleeping human flesh out of the way then bounce onto Dookus back and give him a nice lightsaber tracheotomy? Dafuq? The guy can think fast enough on his feet to bounce around like a farking superball wielding a sword fer fraks sake, but he can't think fast enough to pull some people out of the way? He'd rather move a Greyhound bus than a feather? GAAAAH!I thought the exact same thing at the time.Plus the prequels were just so CGI laden. I swear if the script called for Obi-Wan to drink a cup of coffee Lucas would have chosen to do it with CGI and a green screen.
