    Here's a plot twist idea for you guys. Upon just watching Empire Strikes Back again, this idea came to mind. We all know the infamous scene on Cloud City where Darth Vader informs Luke that he is his father. This time, it got me thinking, what if that scene never happened? What if Vader was never Luke's father? How different would that have changed Vader's relationship to Luke? Would Luke still have cared deeply to turn Vader back over to the light side if he knew the prophecy that Vader was the Chosen One?

    What are your thoughts on it?

    In one of the first drafts of "The Empire Strikes Back" by the deceased screenplay writer Leigh Brackett Darth Vader and Luke's father (just called Master Skwalker) weren't the same people.
    There was a scene featuring Luke summon Ben's Force ghost, who also brings Luke's father along. Master Skywalker reveals that Luke has a twin sister named Nellith.

    Darth Vader tries to communicate with Luke by help of the force, they even fight by the help of the force. Sounds familiar, right?

    I don't think so. Vader would have just been a villain to get rid off.

    Anakin isn't their father. They were created by Palpatine through manipulation of midichlorians...again. Maybe...LOL

    I have thought about this many times as I have a different view on this topic: What if SW was more like Indiana Jones movies? Meaning each new standalone movie would have been about the adventures of Luke, Leia and Han with a new Story/MacGuffin/Villain? It would essentially be called Star Wars 2, Star Wars 3,etc.

    I don’t think the movie would have the depth that the SW Saga has, but I think it would have opened up more storytelling possibilities and not being locked into telling one cohesive story.
