Amazing....every word that you just said...I completely agree with. Even though Luke lost his way for some time, he still died as a hero, a legend and a Jedi, thats just my opinion on the matter. Now, if we could please return this thread to being a conversation about the actual figure rather than what it is now?wow... I have never seen so much disgust/hate over a SW movie... was it the best of the series... yes and no. did it have problems (absolutely)... but I don't think it warrants all the hate over it. all in all it was a great movie! I enjoyed it and while yes I'm not crazy about Luke's story in the film you can sorta draw parallels to the OT and PT with Luke... both of his mentors went into hiding after they lost. Yoda going into hiding/exile on Dagobah and Ben on Tatoonie.
now we have Luke where he has failed his padawan (Ben Solo) going into exile to hide his shame/guilt similar to Kenobi after he fails to bring Anakin back from the dark side.
