I am hoping the book might shed some light on this but wanted to see if anyone here had any thoughts on this.
The Dark Side found him before the Jedi. And then Plageuis found him.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

Profiling much?

"Hey, you. . . you have a physiological difference from anyone else, you must be a traitor!"
Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.

How is that profiling? lol...

It's no different than in Star Trek, having to cut themselves to prove they weren't changelings... If everyone in the senate goes through the test, they can go, "WOW!!!! WTH?!? I have NEVER seen someone with that high of a count!!" and thus know who the person is... It was already quite plainly told to us, the strength of a person is dependent upon their midichlorian count (I still disagree with the entire idea of midichlorians, but /sigh whatever, try to stick with Lucas as best as we can right?)
