I still say we didn't see enough of him to justify the level of greatness that people bestow upon him. I'm not arguing with anything he did. I also feel he had amazing potential.

But potential is just that. Anakin Skywalker was ultimately unrealized potential. He could have been so much more had he not been chopped to bits whether jedi or sith.

Look at the potential Kyp showed. He has never reached the heights one would expect after the power he showed as a youth. And this is without a major debilitating injury.

This is why I say he's a touch overrated. Not enough sample size to judge him.

Sooo true...they gave Kyp the backseat Confused
Apparently once ur a Jedi Master you dont get to see much action=/
Anakin Skywalker and his premonitions of him being exactly like his grand-father were cool and kinda inevitable too.

I wish they would go back and give us more books Like conquest and Rebirth- centered on Anakin and set while there was still time in the NJO.

I would like him back really, or a clone, in 43 ABY or afterwards, there's always ways, but that would be good too - although, I haven't picked up Invasion yet just because it has Anakin and Jacen alive, the future coming towards them like a freight train with broken brakes and driver having jumped overboard. Confused

*groan* As much as I want Anakin back, a clone is not the way to go. Just....no. Confused

Clone is better than nothing, and I'm sure there could be some way of getting the spirit of Anakin to inhabit it.

Well we could see Tark get anakin's memories?


Though I'm not so into getting him back then seeing more of the life we missed.

We could, but that would be wrong towards Tarq. A clone without a developed personality, with just memories imprinted, perhaps something like that, but not Tarq I hope.

If we're plotting to bring Anakin back, I'm gonna go with the Flow Walking method. Yeah, it might be a little difficult to work out, but I don't think I could deal with a clone. I wouldn't ever really accept him as Anakin.

While my greedy side says I would like that, my common sense side says "where exactly would more anakin storyline fit?" He was young. He didn't have time for much more than what they showed in NJO.

The idea of a clone is awful, and excessive use of flow-walking will just make us want to bring back all dead characters, thus muddling the history and taking away from the loss we all felt at the time.

Therefore, the only future use of Anakin that I see feasible, and somewhat realistic, is if he appears as a force ghost(ala obi-wan) as a mentor for someone like Ben or Allana.

-NJO there's plenty of off screen things that could have happened. Look what Invasion's given us alone- that already shows that more things were going on at that time frame- we just had NO IDEA HOW busy Laughing

Flow-Walking- won't work. Not how that ability is used. It would need to be an ability that would let you go back- but would let you interact and MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Unfortunately Flow Walking corrects itself almost immediately.

Force Ghosts- I still want MORE Force Ghosts- they are a BIG part of the OT..

I can see the problem with using Flow Walking to bring Anakin back. People would start asking, "Well, Anakin's back, why not Mara?". The only solution I could have seen was to make Flow Walking a power that only Caedus achieved. He could have gone back and saved Anakin, but the knowledge of how to do it would have died with him.

And let's hear it for more Force ghosts in the near future. Smile

I kinda like that>>>The Knowledge dies after we get Anakin back Very Happy
Dunno how exactly the Ghost concept will work. Obi-Wan learnt how to do that through Qui-Gonn...And They reaalyy didnt pass down that knowlegde. Perhaps it happens naturally(as in Maras Case)
