Rewatching the TPM what bothers me the most about how Obi-Wan is written is that despite not yet being promoted to full Jedi Knight, he’s already one of the most observant, by-the-book members of the Jedi Order in contrast to Qui-Gon who is very much a maverick.

I sometimes wonder if Lucas got his papers mixed up because the characterizatins should have been the other way around.

Well, in TPM’s first draft, Qui-Gon was a minor character and most of his lines/traits were originally Obi-Wan’s. Then Lucas decided Qui-Gon needed a promotion.
