3. The High Ground.
As previously mentioned, McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi was by far the best aspect of the prequel trilogy. In the duel with Anakin, brother versus brother, McGregor shined. The anguish Obi-Wan felt was palpable and real; you knew that destroying Anakin would also destroy a part of Kenobi’s soul in the process.
Anakin was so far lost to the Dark Side, consumed by rage and lust for power, that all logic had escaped him. We knew he would not heed Obi-Wan’s warning: “It’s over, Anakin! I have the high ground!” We closed our eyes, sighed, and Anakin Skywalker was lost forever to Obi-Wan’s blade. Distraught and dejected, Obi-Wan walks away into Star Wars history.
