Does no one watch movies anymore?

Is he not to destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force?
"Balance" never meant equal. Rather, it's referring to the cosmic "flow" of the galaxy being off-kilter. What's the Force? It's an energy field that binds the galaxy together, right? What's the Dark Side? Fear, Hatred, Anger epitomized into powerful Force users. That's unnatural. Anakin's job is to remove that, which he did.

The problem is that The Prophecy wasn't official until '99, and by that point, the Sith in the EU had been resurrected several times over. This alone is one of the many reasons why the EU is going to be ignored in VII.
