the reason i have so much more sympathy for anakin than kyle is that anakin may have done equally bad things but he was also a victim of circumstance. like not only was anakin trained by a corrupt jedi order with unsustainable ideals who believed in telling an angry and scared former slave to repress and ignore emotions instead of come to terms with them, but he was also manipulated and gaslighted by probably THE most dangerous villain of the star wars universe.
of course that doesn’t excuse anakin’s actions or mean he’s a sweet innocent baby uwu~ but as far as we know kylo ren CHOSE the dark side by himself with absolutely no outside infulences? like he was a padawan of luke skywalker, a guy who literally saved the universe through the power of love?
tldr; kylo ren chose the dark side but anakin could have avoided it.
