    If you think about it, Anakin himself, his mere existence, is what brought unbalance to the "Force". It was Anakin Skywalker's death and not Darth Sideous death that brought balance back to the force?

    He was a "convergence" in the force that was not natural. He was the chosen one who, through his own death, brought the Force back in balance?

    Through his own actions he died. Luke did not kill him. He died because he tossed the lightening bolt wielding emperor down the shaft.

    Not only did he bring balance to the force he also was the reason it was unbalanced to begin with?

    I would have to disagree with that. I think it's made pretty clear that the Sith are the cause of the Force being out of balance, and that the prophecy states that the chosen one will bring balance by destroying the Sith. The Sith have been around (in hiding) for roughly 1,000 years prior to Anakin's birth. The imbalance already existed before Anakin did.

    Although Anakin takes the wrong path, he ultimately fulfills the destiny of the chosen one by killing the last two Sith (Palpatine and himself), ending the Sith and bringing balance to the Force.

    If you were to imagine that Anakin just died without killing Palpatine, the Sith would still be around and the Force would still be out of balance even after Anakin's death (although this couldn't have happened because it wasn't Anakin's destiny).

    So your saying the "Force" somehow favors light side or just hated the Sith? Does Balance mean there is only light side use of the Force?

    I'm saying that Sith are evil, and their use of the Force for unethical purposes causes it to be imbalanced. It's not a question of the Force "siding" with the Jedi, but rather the removal of negative influences that are corrupting the Force.

    The Force is a collection of life forces, so in a way, it's kind of like a "garden." While Jedi are not always perfect gardeners, Sith deliberately contaminate the garden with mutagens and disease. (I mean this as an analogy, not literally.)

    I believe that the Jedi and the Sith are merely two sides of one coin. I find this even easier to believe, considering that a former Jedi Master was responsible for the creation of the Sith Order. So, the idea that balance had to be achieved by eradicating the Sith makes no sense to me.

    Good and evil will always exist side by side in the same universe. Or the positive and the negative. Or chaos and order. It's the natural law. To demand the elimination of one to achieve "balance" (as if such a thing can be achieved) does not make sense to me. This demand sounds like an illusional belief that humans harbor about morality.



    Why do you believe that? Is Anakin too ambiguous a character to be regarded as "acceptable"? Is ambiguity tolerated by certain fans in the Star Wars Universe? If not, why?

    For a "thing" to even have potential to be "balanced" there must be something you can measure. Anakin was a "vergence" in the force.

    From http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Vergence

    A vergence, or nexus point, was a phenomenon of the Force that was centered around a place or object; and in rare instances around an individual. A vergence was a place in the galaxy where the Force flowed the most freely, in a concentrated wellspring of energy that could be more easily harnessed by those sensitive to its power.

    "I have encountered a vergence in the Force."
    "Located around a person?"
    "A boy. His cells have the highest concentration of midi-chlorians I have ever seen in a lifeform... It is possible he was conceived by midi-chlorians.
    "
    Qui-Gon Jinn and Mace Windu on Jinn's discovery of Anakin Skywalker on Tatooine[src]

    Seems this was an unnatural condition for Anakin. If I read that right, any Force Sensitive harnessing the Force while in presence of Anakin would be more powerful than when not in his presence.

    Anakin whether SIth or Jedi, dark or light, was a "concentrated wellspring of energy that could be more easily harnessed by those sensitive to its power."

    Anakin's mere presence with the Emperor gave the Emperor more power. Even OB1 and Yoda would be more powerful in his presence.

    Anakin was an unnatural wellspring of Force energy and his existence brought it out of balance with the universe. Regardless if he used the dark or the light side he would cause it to be unbalanced. His children to a lesser degree could possibly do the same.

    Plagius and Sideous experiments may have accidently caused Anakin to have more midi-chlorians than seen in any other lifeform.
