I know there a few of you out there, and i had some puzzling questions that i have pondered for years. 1. Who is Anakin Skywalker's father. I know that Shmi Skywalker says that the boy has no father, is this because Anakin is loosely based on Jesus Christ? The chosen one? Or, is Darth Plagieus Anakin's father. Plagieus is Palpatine's sith master. 2. How does Luke Skywalker learn the ways of the force so quickly? It took Anakin several years to become as powerful as he was, how can Luke learn so much so quickly? 3. Has anyone read any of the books that preceed episode's 1, 2,3, and then between episode 3 and 4, and then follow episode 6 Return of the Jedi? It is really hard to find good information out there because there is so much of it, and i was curious as to know what some of you think on these matters.
