I should have been more clear in my post - there are no times in the Prequels or TCW where Obi-Wan acknowledges Artoo or any droid as being anything more than an tool or appliance.

Just because Kenobi interacts with Artoo does not mean he views him as anything more than a droid just like the thousands of others.

The argument in RotS is simply to wind Anakin up. The Prequels and TCW don't make a big deal of it, but there are several points at which it is made clear that Kenobi thinks of droids as sophisticated spanners.

Unless Artoo specifically identified himself as Anakin's R2 unit Kenobi would never be able to tell the difference and hether you like it or not, this is exactly what happens on screen.

I find it a bigger problem that Chewbacca interacted with Yoda, and yet was best buds with a guy who didn't even believe the force existed.

He greets him as a friend and comrade here. So I would say that's wrong.

By that point, the Jedi were already dead. It's hard for anyone to believe in the force after Darth Vader, Emperor Sidious, and the Empire have literally and figuratively destroyed the jedi's legacy.

Simply, blame it on bad writing of the prequels
Yeah well, R2 had his memory erased at the end of Revenge of the Sith so how could he recognize Obi-wan?

Nope. Just C3PO mind-wiped, not R2D2. "Clean them up. Treat them well. Have the protocol droid's mind wiped."
