I still think it makes no narrative sense that Anakin and Owen start the story on Tatooine.
I thought he was a newly married spice trucker who bumps into Obi-Wan during one of his twice Knightly adventures and ends up being drawn away from his family by the lure of the Force.
His wife (who isn’t the queen of Space Venice) is already pregnant and when the Jedi are forced to scatter Owen takes his family to the crappiest place imaginable for protection from Darth Vader. Skywalker would be a common name like Jones or Felkunstoniasnitz.
The prequels are hard work to fix. I applaud people for trying so hard.
