Well thats not true. The Jedi were great warriors above the average guy IF they were a core character. Otherwise they kind of sucked.

Anyway on a less sarcastic note I would have cast Leonardo Dicaprio, who expressed interest in the role, as Anakin Skywalker, over Hayden Christensen. The only rationale I can find in casting Hayden is he's a good looking guy. Dicaprio was a big heart throb, a huge name, and is capable a serious presence yet innocent presence perfect for a young Darth Vader.

Plus look at how much the shape of his head resembles Sebastian Shaw's in his brief scene from Jedi, compared to Christensen

Dicaprio 2002

Darth Vader Unmasked Return of the Jedi

Hayden Christensen 2002
