You're grasping at straws here, pal.
If Vader had lived he'd have to answer for a lot of deaths....not sure what people would grant him just because he's been 'redeemed'. Whether he's evil to the bone or not...some lines have been pretty darn crossed. Killing young children and various rebellion dudes, choking his subordinates from afar for mistakes...and aiding in an entire planet being blown up..... Some may feel he got off too easy.
