I began to realize that people at age 50 doesn't look old at all, they do keep some of their youth. Now Obi wan in episode 4 was in his mid 50s yet he looked as if he was in his 70s or 80s. With clone wars, We learned that Obiwan is known for taking in disguises. Is his aging meant to be a disguise or does something happen to him that causes him to age faster. Is Obiwan a clone of someone and never knew it? Clones have been known to age fast.
Lol @ assuming Lucas ever thought that through when he first made ANH.
"The Grand Admiral was smart and subtle, but never used his brilliance to show up or humiliate anyone.
He demanded results, but never perfection, and had amazing stores of patience for those who were truly working to their fullest ability.
It was a pity Thrawn's style of leadership hadn't spread through the rest of the navy.
If that happened, he suspected, the Empire would stand forever."
