    That completely contradicts everything the films tell us. It also contradicts everything we know about anger.

    Luke was a grey Jedi they mastered both sides of the force but chose to stay on the light side so he could use dark side powers when ever he wanted but rarely did for fear of getting corrupted by them.

    With a Beatles-esque hair-do, to boot! All-hail the Beatles mop-head! ;)

    Also, the clothes were intentional to mimic Vader at the start of ROTJ, if memory is correct from The Making of Return of the Jedi.

    He is living with the possibility that his teachers have lied to him about the nature of his parentage.

    But Luke's reaction later on is still cool- he's mildly upset with Yoda (with knowing something that he acknowledged to himself as true in Empire- (Vader: Luke. Luke: Father! Vader: Son, come with me.)) and even less upset with Obi-Wan over lying to him. So, there's no reason for Luke to turn arrogant/dismissive (turn punk) on account of this.

    It also doesn't make sense on account of how badly his butt was kicked on account of arrogance in TESB to act with even more arrogance and with less prudence in ROTJ.

    The only thing battle-weary about Luke is his fear, and maybe stoicism (repressing emotions)? Which doesn't line up with Luke still being cheery at the end of Empire (he cracks a smile at Chewbacca's reply).
