belden said:i believe luke is the better jedi- because of what he does with his powers as opposed to anakin. anakin only wants to focus on the power while luke wants to pass on what he has learned instead of focusing on himself. anakin being a kinght could have taken a padawan at any time but he did not. luke (truce of bakura) found someone who was strong in the force and tried to help him and tried to save him so he may learn the true nature of the force (from my point of view).
In all fairness to Anakin, he was made a knight in the middle of a war, and then instantly shipped out to the Outer Rim seiges with Obi-Wan, it wasn't as if he was at the Jedi Temple with the younglings to be in the situation to take a padawan.
My beef with Luke (other then the incestuous tendencies) is that his 'mastery' of the Force only comes in the EU (which I know Lucas has to approve to a certain degree) but it never happened in the movies, which to be honest, are the only True Star Wars as they're the only ones done by Lucas.
I would agree that Anakin does tend to focus more on aquiring power, but, when you look at the reasons he wants to aquire more power, it becomes less of a lust for power through sheer greed. Because of his failure to prevent his mother's death (afterall, she was still (barely) alive when he found her, he felt he should have been able to prevent her from dying even then) and so he can prevent those he loves from dying in the future. As I was discussing above with Master Zion, Anakin's tragic flaw is definitely his temper, but, another is that he doesn't like change, and wants things to stay as they are (or as he wants them to be)
