Of all the forms he could take, the Shaw form makes the most sense. Visually, it’s consistent with how the other ghosts don’t magically de-age from when they died. And thematically, it represents growth with how the character has truly become a better person after all his life experiences. Any pre-Vader Anakin form just symbolizes regression because PT Anakin still acts on greedily possessive “love”, whereas post-Vader Anakin has finally grown beyond that flaw.
