What Ultimately Made Anakin Skywalker Turn to The Dark Side?

Post by Handsome » Thu Jan 12, 2012 10:27 pm

Hi,

I am pondering on the question on what is the actual driving factor that led to the descent of the powerful Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker to becoming the most dreaded Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader.
From what we know, he was driven by the need to save his wife as well as by his own personal ambitions. It goes without saying that Palpatine's professional use of manipulation worked hand in hand with all these underlying factors.
Throughout the movie, it is event through his behavior that his character is gradually being shaped into something more evil and dark to be reckoned with. The ultimate blow was when he betrayed Obi Wan and his wife on Mustafar. This just helped to seal the deal for Palpatine.

However, what do you experts actually believe is the real catalyst for his change to the Dark Side of the Force?


Please post your opinions freely without worries!

Have a great start to the new year!

Comeon Give your opinions!

For me I believe it is a combination of all the stressful exterior factors than resulted in the decline of Anakin Skywalker.

Obi-Wan was eyeing Anakin's wife and that makes Anakin jealous therefore the fight on Mustafar.

Think it more like he was very piss with lots of jedi master esp mace windu, who being an ass that stop him to be in the jedi counsel. Does not given the recognition he deserve. Think tired is a factor, keep running around the galaxy and fighting for other ppl's fight (kaypo too much like the US). Less time with his wife. Fear over take him when his vision see her death. The eagerness to find a solution to save her. Knowing the Jedi master will bullshit him by saying "everyone will cross over, there is nothing we can do about it".

Bro, that's life is SG. We are all earning a living so that the rich can enjoy the "decent" qualiy life at our expense. How not to stress?. We are more of less like skywalker. Push too much, we might joint the dark side (opposition party). Lol
