Indeed, the very sound of the name is unique. Such a masterfully crafted character, Qui Gon is both unconstrained by orthodoxy and compassionate, very fit to be Obi Wan’s master, who is tecnically a by the book jedi, but when young, like many of his fellow jedi was too rought and insensible, saying things like “why do I sense we’ve picked up another pathetic life form?”
Isn’t that the point, though, that the Jedi Order wasn’t perfect? If it had been, not even Palpatine would have managed to destroy it (similarly with the Republic). Palpatine was brilliant at exploiting weaknesses, but those weaknesses were already there.
