From the time Anakin left until the end of TPM couldn't have been more than a week or so. It's very unlikely that Shiimi fell in love with Owen's father in that short of a period of time. So was Anakin, Padme, and the entire Jedi Order just cheap ungrateful pricks?
    Please explain how the movie is in any way better that Anakin and his mom were slaves.
Ok...Well, first off the Jedi can't police the entire galaxy. They never said that they are there to liberate all slaves and bring justice to all people. The galaxy is just too big and has too many problems. Not only that, but the Jedi work for the Republic. Tatoonie is not Republic space, it's Hutt space. And in Hutt space slavery is legal.

Plus, as we've already established, Shiimi had it pretty good. Why mess with that?

Then there is also the aspect of maybe Watto didn't want to let her go at that point. He only had 2 slaves and lost one of them already.

"From the time Anakin left until the end of TPM couldn't have been more than a week or so. It's very unlikely that Shiimi fell in love with Owen's father in that short of a period of time."

The time frame in which Shiimi is sold and falls in love with Cleig is almost 10 years.

There are several reasons as to why the Jedi council didn't buy Shiimi. Do any of us have the Jedi charter on liberating slaves through out the galaxy?

No? That's because Lucas doesn't explain every little insignificant detail. Never has.

But is it better that Anakin and Shiimi were slaves? No one has ever disputed that idea. To be honest, I don't care if they were slaves or just poor or just stupid. All the story needed was that they were in an unfortunate situation. Who cares what that situation is?

    Also the slave part is a minor thing to be honest. But the virgin mother part is stupid. Taken together and that it's obvious Lucas went way too far try to make the viewers forget Vader. And it does raise a lot of questions that aren't easily explained.


I think when you're showcasing a 9 year old boy, it isn't all that marketable to draw direct comparisons to one of the most iconic villians of all time. In fact sympathy is probably the best way to go.

    Apparently you missed the best part of Episode 1. The Darth Maul vs Jedi handicap match. Best lightsaber fight to date. And it makes the original fights look like crap. Not that they needed too much help. I mean, why the hell does Obi-Wan do that little spin anyway? Couldn't Vader have just cut him down when his back was turned?

That's still not wire work. How would you explain Jedi flying all over the place in Eps. 1-3, only to have them stay grounded in 4-6? Unilateral agreement between all Jedi & Sith to fight on the ground? Sure, we had Yoda going all Lucha, but that can be chalked up to being a Jedi master. Star Wars, despite being sci-fi, has always retained an air of "realness", and using wire work for Jedi fight scenes would just look out of place, IMO.

Probably has something to do with the fact that Luke got the "Jedi for Dummies" training. And Vader was never in the business of trying to kill Luke.

It's the equivalent of giving your younger brother noogies. Not real impressive, but just enough to show him who's boss.
