Just to clear something up

Someone left a comment on one of my Star Wars entries that claims Admiral Motti was the one who told Vader, "You, my friend, are the last of their religion [the Jedi]."

Actually, that is incorrect. Check the original 1977 movie, and it was Peter Cushing who had that line, so I was indeed correct to name Moff Tarkin. Motti was the one who told Vader, "Don't try and frighten us with your sorcerer's ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the Rebel's hidden fort--" (at this point Vader began a force-choke on Motti).

Also, Episode I depicts Anakin's piloting abilities as lucky during the battle, but his skill (as the result of Force reflexes) is quite evident during the earlier podrace. Episodes II and III also show why he really was "the best starpilot in the galaxy."

ah yes, a classic example of someone thinking they're smarter than you and being proven wrong because of it
