Okay. What I always thought was this...
Obi-Wan and Anakin, two orphans from different planets, grew up together, possibly within the Jedi Academy. Being a brash asshole, Anakin left to become hot shot pilot...only to become a captain of a spice frigate (like Owen said). However, The Clone Wars break out (not clones of Jango Fett god dammit) and the Republic enlists the Jedi to fight for them, Obi-Wan becoming General Kenobi. Obi-Wan is assigned to smuggle the Queen of Alderaan off planet for her protection as assassins are taking out key members of congress (Palpatine, of course). They leave Alderaan on...a Spice Frigate, captained by Anakin Skywalker and his mottley crew of Owen Lars and others (possibly a child Han Solo). Anakin falls for the beautiful queen but she has eyes for the more noble Obi-Wan. Adventures ensue, Anakin resumes using the force, fighting in the wars (like a Han Solo analogue) and being sent on missions by Palpatine, using him as a father figure. He reveals he has been using darkside powers to Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan implores him to turn back before he falls to temptation and does something he'll regret. The two begin butting heads. Eventually the Queen reveals she is pregnant with the child of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Anakin, betrayed, goes after Obi-Wan and the Queen. Shortly after giving birth (to TWINS), he kills her in a fit of blind rage. Obi-Wan goes to engage him in the Imperial shipyard on non-descript volcanic planet. Obi-Wan, emotionally wrought, asks why his 'brother' would do this? He replies that Anakin Skywalker is dead, the man he faces is Darth Vader, apprentice to Lord Palpatine, the man who created the 'Clone Wars'. After a fierce battle, Anakin is defeated and falls to his 'death'. Obi-Wan goes to Alderaan to collect his children. He chooses for Leia to stay with her grandparents on Alderaan, and he takes Luke to Owen Lars on Tatooine, keeping him away from him knowing that he is on Palpatines shit list, along with any other Jedi.
Making Obi-Wan Luke's father gives a whole new level of emotion to scenes in the original trilogy, especially Vader's speech about being Luke's 'father', giving him a muc
