You know, that explains Kenobi's lousy back-pedaling in RotJ.  I never really bought the whole "Well, his evil side murdered his good side, kind of a metaphor you see" story.  It just never sat well with me.

On the other hand, Darth as Luke's father *always* made sense to me.  When I first saw _Star Wars_ (now known as _A New Hope_), I thought to myself -- and I remember this -- "Well, who else could Luke's father be but Darth Vader?  Of course!  It makes perfect sense!"

Perhaps I just had issues as a child.
