Obi-Wan Kenobi. Jedi Master, Republic General, master of Form IV Lightsaber combat. Truly one of the Republics greatest heroes and one of the finest Jedi to ever have lived. Until you look more closely at him. Because when you think about some of Obi-Wans decisions, hes a bit of a prat. Lets waste no more time in looking at Obi-Wan Kenobis five worst decisions...
5. Postponing Lukes Training For Three Years
After his death at the hands of Darth Vader (which Ill come to later) Obi-Wans contact with Luke is minimal which is kind of understandable since hes dead. But given that he is capable of manifesting himself to Luke it would make sense, not only for Lukes wellbeing but for the sake of the galaxy, to resume his training right away or at least tell him Theres a green Muppet on Dagobah that can train you rather than just sitting around for three years watching Luke fend for himself after a few hours of Jedi training, and only appearing to him when he is on the brink of death. Admittedly being able to deflect laser blasts with your eyes closed is a pretty handy skill but its not going to be a huge help in leading a ragtag band of freedom fighters against an all-dominating Empire. If Obi-Wan had kept up Lukes training, he might have held his own against Darth Vader a little better and the Rebellion would have overthrown the Empire a few months ahead of schedule.
