Yeah , it’s an interesting opinion Malgus presents and I think he is presenting it in the right place . I had no problem following Vader’s trajectory when I saw the OT during its original run however , I understood that years had past between the first two films and by ROTJ , I could understand Vader’s motivations and inner conflict .I didn’t need the prequels to understand any of that . I did have a curiousity to see what made him turn to the dark side though ,built up in interviews in various publications at the time . Some of it came to pass and some of it was flawed in execution. Every kid in the 80s knew his back story as the one where he battled Kenobi over a molten pit and fell in ,to crawl his way out of that fiery pool , to paraphrase what was said in publications that were labelled official , such as Star Wars Official poster monthly and even a George Lucas interview in Rolling Stone . Instead , we get Kenobi chopping his limbs off and leaving him at the edge of the lava flow ,to scream and burn to death as he turns his back on him .The damage is done though ,and I hope the Kenobi show addresses it , but I think the OT stands just fine on its own .
