Guys, the whole point of the Prequels is that the Jedi were arrogant and when their attackers came after them they were caught off guard.
I've thought about this from that line in AOTC, however, I don't think the idea is fleshed out enough for my taste. It's a stretch, but one could make that connection. Personally, I would have like to have seen a little more time devoted to that idea if that was the case.
If Lucas says that's way the Jedi die, that's the way the Jedi die.
True, but that doesn't make it the right choice artistically or consistancy wise.
