I can't buy Vader as a brutal force of nature and order, when Anakin was a whiny kid who grew into an autistic Chad who spent his time making jokes with his alien padawan. The OT gives you the impression that when he falls, he's a competent, 30/40 something man. Collected and talented. Not a Maverick in his mid 20s who goes from whiny to moody to breaking down. They softened Vader too much and made his whole character feel hollow.
