On the one hand, you'd think that the ability to think outside the box would be an asset for a Jedi Knight. On the other hand, we know young Anakin Skywalker is an ass and is liable to get Obi-Wan killed before his time. You are supposed to discuss new strategies with your master before surprising them with your outlandish new battle tactics. That's what Obi-Wan should have gotten onto him about. Oh yeah, and about Yoda.
At the same time, we all know that Force powers are completely underused in Star Wars, particularly in battle. Anakin has an another idea that might give him the upper hand.

But Anakin eventually gets his comeuppance, and finally learns a lesson. This nonsense is brought to you by Matthew McCleskey. -via Geeks Are Sexy
