I can do without the prequels, but I'll admit that ROTS was the strongest of the 3. I found this theory interesting, in that it doesn't rely so much on headcanon, and cites the actual events of the movie. I always saw the symbolism in Vader being "born", as Padme was dying, but I never went as far as putting some of these points together and considering that he lived because she died. While I don't believe Lucas was writing this conclusion with that much depth in mind, it works for me, and makes this ending more palatable, with the added bonus of lending a bit of weight to the whole, "You don't know the power of the Dark Side. I MUST obey my master."
