    The other day I was watching Episode V, and I noticed that when Luke takes off from Dagobah to go to Bespin, Obi Wan says that he is the last hope. How has he forgotten about Leia, he was there when she was born?

    Has anyone else seen anything strange in the movies that doen't seem right?

    Because it was not his position to say they were brother and sister, just to keep them safe for the moment before they could meet each other and confront the emporer,vader and thier cronies.

    In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin says something like 'You're either with me or against me' and Obi-Wan replies 'Only a Sith deals in absolutes!' But in The Empire Strikes back, Yoda says to Luke 'No! Do or do not. There is no try.'

    Therefore making Yoda a sith. Glad thats out, it’s been bugging me for a while.

    well it's quite clear that its not just the Sith who deal in absolutes. I mean according to the Jedi you either followed th "light" side or "dark" side. Thats pretty much an absolute.

    Which is a better motivator? "Luke, if you fail the galaxy is doomed!" or "It's okay Luke, if you don't make it we've got a replacement. Just try your best."

    well the Jedi Order has pretty much always dealt in absolutes. Even in pre-Empire times.

    Exactly, Luke had to be told to do it rather than try it. Luke wasn't ready when he rushed off to fight Darth Vader, and that is why he lost his hand and almost lost his life.

    The Force works in mysterious ways. But if he was fully trained he would have never gotten into those situations in the first place.

    Also if he stayed with Yoda he could have learned much about the Jedi of the old republic which would have helped him when he made his Jedi Academy.

    Not necessarily. The Jedi of the Old republic didn't know the true nature of the Force which Vergere later reveals to Jacen. Namely that there is no dark side of the force.

    Hard to see the future is, always changing. Yes, his mechanical hand has saved him from the likes of Grand Admiral Thrawn, but if he had finished his training rather than rushing off to face Vader, then perhaps he never would have ended up in a situation where he needed his mechanical hand to save him.
