      well he did discover anakin believed him to be the chosen one and we all know how that played out in the prequels(if Qui-Gon had lived maybe things would have turned out different)

        Yes, he did discover Anakin and believed him to be the Chosen One. That doesn’t answer my question. How is Qui-Gon to blame for Anakin’s bad decisions and actions? If the argument is that he’s responsible for Anakin’s faults (he isn’t), then he’s also responsible for Anakin’s feats: saved the galaxy and brought balance to the Force.

        Qui-Gon didn’t lead anyone to their doom. Nobody in-universe belives that. It’s disingenuous to jump to that conclusion. It’s a statement that comes out of nowhere.

  • Alexrd

    @ Jake G: That’s an erroneous logic. That Qui-Gon insisted that Anakin should be trained doesn’t make him responsible for the tragedy that ended up happening (nor the Jedi who accepted and approved of Anakin being trained). Nor the Jedi that trained Anakin.

    Again, Qui-Gon didn’t lead any Jedi to their doom. No surviving Jedi believes that either. Palpatine was the one who doomed the Jedi. Anakin chose the wrong path willingfully and helped him too. Those two are the ones responsible.

    Wether Maul had survived or not, once Palpatine noticed Anakin, he would be interested in him no matter what. The huge potential and strength in the Force was there.

    And Qui-Gon didn’t call on Yoda for any perceived realization of a mistake on his part. He wasn’t mistaken to begin with. Anakin was the Chosen One and did bring balance to the Force. Qui-Gon called on Yoda for him to learn how to preserve his spirit after death. It wasn’t Qui-Gon’s decision either. He had been chosen to learn it and then Yoda was chosen too.
