I have an old strategy game called STAR WARS: GALACTIC BATTLEGROUNDS and I play the shit out of it every day. One day I made a Scenario (custom story) where Luke and Vader joined forces. In the backstory, Anakin had not carried out Order 66, and he rebelled against Sidious in the Chancellor’s Office. Sidious grievously injured Anakin, but Sidious was forced to flee by a Jedi strike team that arrived seconds after Windu was flung out of the office’s window and Anakin being subsequently injured before he could finish Anakin off. Obi-Wan led a resistance of Jedi Knights against the clones, and Obi-Wan brought Padmé to Anakin while he was in a Bacta tank inside a ship the Jedi were using to escape Order 66. The 21-B medical droids do not have the necessary materials to heal Anakin fully, due to the chaos of the clones massacring the Jedi. While a full healing is not available, the medic droids propose robotic limbs for the mauled Anakin. Obi-Wan, Padme, Yoda and Windu (who didn’t die thanks to a random speederbike turning his would-be date with death into broken bones and serious bruises) decide that if Anakin were to be back in the action and help the Jedi as soon a possible, robotic limbs were the only acceptable choice. The three Jedi and Padmé waited anxiously for Anakin’s surgery to be complete. (Anakin was unconscious the whole time, he did not have to suffer like canon-Anakin) The door opened, and Anakin, in his new mostly robot body, walked forth. Anakin and Padmé embrace, but the obvious truth that she’s pregnant with Anakin’s child is not lost on Yoda and Windu. After a long and tiresome discussion between Anakin, Windu, Yoda, Obi-Wan and Padmé, it is deemed as an exception. Because Anakin had turned away from Sidious and remembered what was right, he truly possessed what most Jedi lack: the ability to return from the dark side of the Force. Padmé’s water breaks soon after, and Luke and Leia are born on a ship full of refugee Jedi. The Jedi land on Naboo, a planet known for the peaceful Naboo and soft-hearted Gungans. Upon landing, the about 50 or so Jedi and Padmé are taken in by the Gungans in Otoh Sancture, a safe haven created by the Gungans far before the war for protection. The Jedi begin to plan on how to rebuild their murdered religion and how to handle the devastating blow to the Jedi Order by Palpatine.
Fast forward 20 years. Anakin and Padmé have successfully raised two Jedi children. Windu and Yoda are apprehensive of the children, but they have seen up close what Luke and Leia can do. Both of the Skywalker children have created their own lightsabers from crystals found in the Core of Naboo. Luke’s crystal came from an Opee Sea Killer’s tooth, and Leia’s from hardened booma plasma. The Jedi have been in isolation for two decades, only getting news of the outside world through the Gungan spice traders. The newly rebuilt Jedi Order is small, but with the help of the Gungans and Naboo, good stands a chance against evil. And then the Scenario begins in-game.
