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
