I've been thinking about who Anakin Skywalker's father is, and I can't help but notice how Qui-Gonn Jinn phrased the question he asked Shmi, "He can see things before they happen. That is why his reflexes are so fast, it is a Jedi trait. Who was his father?" I believe that he was implying that Anakins father could have been highly force sensitive as he was. And how Shmi answered, "There wasn't a father. I carried him, I gave birth to him, I raised him." She could have been saying that his birth was the will of the force... or maybe his father was a Jedi and couldn't stay because of the order. And in Star Wars episode VI Luke was telling Leia "The force runs strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. My sister has it." This gives me further reason to believe that the force in the Skywalker bloodline could have started further back then Anakin Skywalker. It could have been Paltipane, that would explain his interest in the Skywalkers, and why Anakin admired Paltipane so much- they saw each other in one another. Or it could have just been some random force sensitive jerk who was never discovered by the order.
