His turn to the dark side could have been avoided if the order had been more trusting of him and willing to see past his flaws.
Instead they remained rigid and allowed their enemies to expose their flaws and to exploit his mistrust of them.
He probably the worst Jedi of all time. Highly emotional and unfit to be a Jedi. Had they not trained him, the Sith would have found him.
