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.

Hence why droids aren't allowed in his bar.

[[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.

He was afraid he'd screw it up. Obi-Wan's master-apprentice chain went rather poorly; his master was a maverick who's "Chosen One" destroyed the Jedi Order. ''His'' master became a Sith Lord. And Obi-Wan's own apprentice became '''Darth Vader.''' Also, consider how bitter Old Ben must've been after Revenge of the Sith. Obi-Wan was afraid that he'd turn Luke into an unstable TykeBomb, and lose one of the only two good shots they had at stopping the Empire. Instead, Obi-Wan let his aunt and uncle look after the baby, waiting for when he'd be confident and stable enough to train Luke the right way.
