Guv, indeed, Ewoks were the last straw for me, I’d have to say…
I rather think that the first of those appeared within the first sentence scrolling up the screen in the original picture; entertainment value notwithstanding, the film and following franchise never became other than increasingly far-fetched, and the answers you’d provided to my previous questions only seem to underscore that point. No offense intended.
Popularity and quality are not necessarily synonymous - and perhaps, most seldom so in film than anywhere. Again, no offense intended.

And really, all it takes is 1 time that your crush turns out to be your long lost sister to make you a bit cautious. I get it Luke. You can never be too careful.
Spooks, you had offered sympathy for the plight of Lord Vader here; along with the explanation that Luke had gone Morrisey
with PTSD after learning that Leia was his sister; that’s what I had meant when I said that he might have just let go, leaned back and allowed the dank stink of Dagobah to take him and be gone.
But he didn’t. Courageously, Luke pressed on - and he had to look Leia in the face after that, all the while struggling with a complex brought on by his emotional and physical attraction - in befuddling contrast, presumably - with his intellectual recognition for certain social taboos (although they were royalty, which is a relevant distinction here with regard for what is acceptable - even in galaxies “far, far away,” I might imagine).
Factor in Luke’s daddy issues: “My father is the devil; obliterating entire planets of innocents for spite; choking people all the time; enslaving the galaxy… He’s totally tyrannical; abusive - even lopped off my hand one time for smarting off… Nothing I do is ever bad enough for him... Of course
I’m going to rebel… Of course
I’m going to want to blow up his stupid death star…
"But all I can do is hang here upside-down in a wampa igloo and wait for ‘Handsome Han’ and his toasty-bellied tauntaun...
“How do I not suck!?
Verily, in the greater context, Vader’s life seems like a cakewalk compared to Luke. Either way, the lot of them comprise the epitome of dysfunctional.
No offense intended, of course…
