There was a whole bit in Dragons Revisited about how a yellow dragon corpse was found, and they thought they had found a new species, but after conferring with other scholars and dragons, it was revealed to be an evil gold dragon's corpse. His scales had tarnished from a burnished gold to a dirty yellow.

That was the behind the scenes narrative reason, to foreshadow/parallel Vader's half man, half machine nature. In universe, though, no one had an idea Anakin would need them so it doesn't make much sense.
Truth...even though never brought up, Palpatine was obsessed with outliving his shell. He could have very easily been an option B being studied for himself as well, and Anakin just needed it more, sooner.But, speculative at best.

Balance to the force...
People assume this means a balanced number of force users, but maybe it's wiping the slate clean. no jedi philosophy, No Sith philosophy. The Force just is. Either extreme of no passion or all passion is not the correct path. Maybe the correct path is to use the force as needed, understand the connections, and don't use it to be an a**%!~$.
I read toppling spell when one of my players picked the feat.
I think any spell that replicates something a non-caster usually does should still have to use the same stats that the other class would have to use. Most of the caster solutions substitute CL or prime casting stat in place of BAB or STR/DEX to accomplish things.
I may rule that when spells do this, they have to use their actual CMB/CMD, not a modified one.
Exceptions for spells like Transformation obviously.

So Obi Wan was expected to be dead by 70-ish. That puts Vader around 60-ish? Assuming Obi Wan was around 20 in APM, and Anakin was 9 or 10 when they found him.How old was Tarkin? Why would he assume a force user of a similar age or possibly younger would be dead? Did he think Vader was going to kick the bucket in 10 years?
What was never in a movie?
The Tarkin/Vader relationship, and why Vader cut him so much slack.Even though it was in 2 tv series, it was not in ANH, so my point kinda stands, but I get that it's no different than expanding on a concept later in a sequel or other media, in this case a tv show.
He did say "production" fighter. I think Vader's was a prototype.
was Luke trusted to fly a billion credit starfighter on an all or nothing mission? On Obi Wan's word? Because he saved Leia? No one there had seen him fly anything, so only his own estimation of his piloting skill could have been given. WHY was that enough?
WHY was Rey trusted to find Luke? On Han Solo's word or Chewbacca's? Because she helped save the droid that had the map? She did actually fly the Millenium Falcon, though...
So, I guess that's one up for Rey?

Pretty much my entire point. Thank you.
Is it just me or...
Snoke looked a bit tore up. Scars and gouges out of his head and ears. The way he reacted to Luke's name...I wonder if they've had a dust up or two, Snoke and Luke, and Snoke didn't fare well for the exchange...
it seemed his fear of Skywalker was more than a general fear of him resurrecting the Jedi.
