My daughter just asked, “R2-D2 was there for the whole story and never had his memory wiped so why didn’t he just tell Luke that Vader was his father at some point?” I just sat there dumbfounded until she shrugged and walked away.

How was R2D2 supposed to communicate this information? ???

Luke understood some of what he said, he could put text up on screens, and there was always C-3PO to translate.

That what I asked, too, after suffering through ep.1 and getting the, "So, Vader is actually Jesus?" out of the way. 9)

It would be fun if he'd gone back to RotJ once more and added a scene between Luke and the Droids where they are like "Oh, you didn't know Master Luke? But, why didn't you just ask?" LOL
