Many fans would choose Obi-Wan Kenobi as their favorite character from Star Wars. It’s easy to see why. In the original trilogy, he’s wise and patient with Luke. In the prequel trilogy, he’s young and impatient and we get to see how different he used to be. However, it sure is annoying when he lies to Luke. That from a “certain point of view” crap only goes so far.
A deleted scene found on an EditDroid laser disc for Return of the Jedi by fans shows that Yoda was the one holding Obi-Wan back. He tells Luke, “Obi-Wan would have told you long ago had I let him.” Yoda didn’t want Luke to know his father was Darth Vader. Jerk move, Yoda. It’s nice to know that Obi-Wan at least wanted to be honest with Luke.
