The Book's Cover

Help me understand this, because I can't.

Are we supposed to understand that Anakin left Tatooine as a young lad (true) and Luke came back as an adult (false)?

Are we to understand that these two men, father and son, turned their backs on each other (false)?

Are we to understand that these movies are movies about Tatooine (false, but getting closer)?

Are we to understand that Anakin is alive but Luke is a ghost (backward)?

Are we to understand that this cover struck George Lucas's fancy even though it is nonsensical, and he went with it, because he's George Lucas and he can do whatever he wants?

Yes, I think that's it.

Readers: when you have the chance, give input into your (book) covers.  They shouldn't be irrelevant gibberish.

Mr. Lucas: are you done crapping on the greatest franchise of my youth yet?  Please say yes.
