Evil Jedi Baddies?

I don't remember where i read this but its sure to get you star wars fans thinking, i thought it was quite an intersting theory.

I dont remember exactly how it goes so it will be in my own words:

"You refer to the prophecy of the one who will bring balance to the force. You believe it's this boy?"

Mace Windu and Master Yoda are reluctant to let Anakin train to become a Jedi Knight. The theory is that they know full well that he will bring balance to the force. Yoda can see the future afterall. And they don't want him to.
Thousands of Jedi around the universe and just a handfull of sith? This is hardly a balance.
To balance the Force the sith would either need to grow a huge ammount, which would never happen, or the Jedi would need to be taken down a peg or two *cough*

By the time of RotJ Luke is the last surviving Jedi and there are no Sith left. This surley is the Ultimate balance as he(luke) has a dark side himself, He wears all black(just like daddy) He has mechanical body parts(just like dad) And he doesnt control his emotions at all, Yet he is a Jedi and fight for good.
Thats quite good balance in the force i'd say.

Your thoughts?

Restoring the balance didn't refer to the relative power of the agents of both sides but to the power of both sides of the Force in and of themselves. The idea being that the relative strength of the two sides of the force were becoming unequal, with the Dark Side of the force being increasingly dominant over the Light Side (which is why the Jedi didn't see the coming of the Sith Lord).

As for the balance, either Anakin did restore it by destroying Emporer Palpatine, the Sith Lord, or he restored it by having a son, Luke, who was able to use both sides of the Force equally - feeding off his emotions to give himself strength, while refraining from letting his emotions control him as a Sith would.

The prophesy was in reference to Anakin (Darth Vader) killing the emperor at the end of ROJ. At least that's what I've always thought.

The jedi try to balance the force by not having too much good or bad, the sith however only want bad.
