Star Wars - Jedi death inconsistencies. Here's a question that's been bugging me for some time now. What's the deal with a Jedi death and the resulting action with the body? Yoda dies, and disappears. Obi-Wan dies, and disappears. Qui-Gon dies and remains...later burned. Anakin (Vader) dies and remains...later burned. Yoda, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon were all "Masters", and had different resulting deaths. The only conclusion I can make is whether or not it was a voluntary death or not. Qui-Gon and Anakin didn't intend to die, whereas Obi-Wan and Yoda did.
