a big part of the u2o2 soundtrack process has been roughly along the lines of, “trawl old geocities pages for janky MIDIs, change the instruments with no rhyme or reason, then click export and pray to jesus”

Prompto: Do we have to risk our lives just to make a living?  (´;Д;`)

Noctis: When you put it that way…  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Gladio: So what? You wanna wait for the treasure to find us?  (; ̄Д ̄)

Listen

Obi-Wan:  I only wanted what was best for you, Anakin!  I wasn’t prepared to train someone like you.
Anakin:  That’s your failing, not mine!
Obi-Wan:  Perhaps I did fail you – but I won’t abandon you to the Dark Side!
Anakin:  That’s not your decision to make!

Obi-Wan:  I would have done anything for you!
Obi-Wan:  This is where it ends, my old friend.
Anakin:  Your path ends here.

A snippet of a cut scene + three lines of banter dialogue that get randomly inserted into the fight scenes from the Revenge of the Sith game.

It obviously takes some liberties and the banter dialogue sometimes gets added in at odd places, but this moment just absolutely wrecked me.  I legitimately put a hand to my chest when JAT yelled out, “I would have done anything for you!” because the emotion was already so intense, Obi-Wan was trying so desperately to get Anakin to come back to the light.

He’ll do what he must to bring Anakin to justice, but that doesn’t mean just leaving him in darkness, it means helping him, it means pleading with Anakin to come back to the light, (”Anakin – please!  Come back to the light.  Face up to what you’ve done.  I can help.”  “It’s too late for that.  You’re too late.  You only want to help yourself.”  “You know that’s not true!”), it means trying so hard to get Anakin to come back, even when we know he’s destined to fail, because Anakin himself won’t come back.  Nothing Obi-Wan can say or do will change anything until Anakin himself wants to come back.

And he knows that he wasn’t prepared to train someone like Anakin, not so soon, but that has never meant that Obi-Wan wouldn’t have done anything for him, because he loves Anakin Skywalker so very, very much.
