An idea from the RobotNames page. When the Skywalker twins had to be separated, Obi-wan knew he needed to protect both of them. He used the Force to hastily put together an android he named OB-1. However, because he figured Luke wouldn't become necessary for several years, he made the force-android several decades older. Obi-wan followed Leia to Alderaan (since she was going to be the high profile bait) and OB-1 went with Luke. Several years down the line (but not enough for the aged OB-1 to be accurate), Leia gets captured. She hurriedly composes a message to Obi-wan on Alderaan and sends it to the nearest planet Tatooine hoping it will eventually get to Alderaan. R2-D2 ends up with Luke and is taken to OB-1 by mistake. OB-1 isn't lying when he says he's never owned a droid and that Darth Vader killed Luke's father because that's what Obi-wan told him happened. OB-1 decides to train Luke and bring him to Obi-wan, who ends up dying when Alderaan explodes. Later when Darth Vader strikes OB-1, he just vanishes because Obi-wan isn't around to will him together. The force ghost of Obi-wan never tells Luke this because frankly the kid has enough problems to deal without without knowing his mentor was really a some sort of construct.

We all know about the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy. But the, we also know that the Clone troopers didn't necessarily attend that academy; they were pretty damn [[BadAss badass]]. Obi-Wan went into hiding after the Emperor took over; he may have assumed that the Emperor still used clones, or at least people who were trained well.

*** "Hold your fire. There are no lifeforms and there can't be any droids because they're not allowed in pods, but the plans might be on board on a disc or whatever and we know the pod is going to land on that desert planet nearby, so we'll just send some troops down to pick it up in a day or so. Or would you rather explain to Lord Vader that you blew up an escape pod with the plans in it?" Remember the "look sir, droids" trooper sounded pretty surprised that there were droids on board, so that obviously wasn't even something the Empire were considering.

For one, he was on Tatooine at this time. The empire is also not above using mercenaries and bounty hunters. And isn´t it conspicuous how they were killed? Stormtroopers may shoot you, but normal blaster fire will only leave local burn marks and internal burns, so it kills you and your body is mostly left unharmed. But in this case they literally got their flesh cooked of their bones without much damage to their surroundings. That is a textbook example of disintegration. And then there is the scene in "Empire Strikes Back". Vader makes it clear he wants Han, Chewie and Leia taken by all means and alive. But he sees the need to single out Fett to tell him: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I95Qgv7tynI "No disintegration's!"]] That is oddly specific if it never happened before.

[[FridgeHorror Think about it:]] Obi-Wan [[TheWoobie lost everything]] when the Empire rose. And, due to training Anakin in spite of the tradition, it's partly [[NiceJobBreakingItHero his fault.]] Obi-Wan already passed the DespairEventHorizon, and the only thing keeping him from wasting away was the hope that the Jedi may return. Once he had started Luke on his training, [[SuicideMission he fully expected to die.]] Being struck by Vader would not only serve to make him a Force Ghost out of reach to help out Luke, but [[DrivenToSuicide let him escape from his despairing physical form]] and re-unite with his fellow Jedi.
