Movies / George Lucas and ‘Star Wars’: 7 of His Biggest Mistakes / Anakin Skywalker’s turn to the dark side

The rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker is the crux of the prequel trilogy and was used as a vehicle for his eventual transformation into the fearsome Darth Vader. Unfortunately, the crucial moment when he bows before Emperor Palpatine just doesn’t quite land, thanks in large part to a payoff that feels far from earned. The basic reason behind Anakin’s turn isn’t a realization of his own sinister nature, or even a tragic fall from grace with nothing left to lose. No, he turns to the dark side because he was outsmarted by a scheme that really shouldn’t have fooled anyone with half a brain.

To the Star Wars saga’s credit, The Clone Wars gave us a far better look inside Anakin’s character than the prequel trilogy ever did, even going so far as to give him an apprentice of his own. But at the same time, you shouldn’t need a companion animated TV series to properly flesh out what amounts to your main character.
