Darth Vader’s Dark Powers Failed with Princess Leia

In the movie Star Wars: A New Hope, Darth Vader takes Princess Leia prisoner to torture her for information on the whereabouts of the Rebels. As we know, Vader is the father of Leia, as stated in the second sequel or in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Why didn’t Darth Vader sense that when he was torturing her?

I mean isn’t he supposed to be one of the most powerful beings in that galaxy, next to the Sith or the Emperor? Vader must have felt stupid for a second when he sensed that information from Luke Skywalker during their second showdown in the Return of the Jedi.

That was a big boo-boo for Darth Vader. Had his own daughter under his nose, and not even his “great dark powers” allowed him to sense that! I’m telling you this dark side stuff is a bunch of crap!

Really, if the dark side is so powerful, why didn’t the Emperor see or sense that Darth Vader was going to turn on him when he was killing Luke with his lightning bolts that shoot out of his hands.

I think it would have been better if Han Solo was the twin brother. It makes perfect sense! Solo turns out to be a galactic criminal because his father was never around! It would have been interesting if it would have gone that way, no? Then, the dark power of Darth could have a little more dignity that way.

      Force really doesn't follow a lot of rules. The entire Jedi Order failed to sense the rise of Sith, with the Sith Overlord himself sitting across a desk. The way I see it, Force is kinda like smell, sound or sight. It's an extra sense. But sometimes people don't notice things that they don't expect, or subconsciously refuse to perceive.

      Besides, I don't think Vader knew Leia was his daughter until after he died. He only sensed Luke had a twin sister, but never explicitly said who that is. I like to think he joined the Force, found Obi-wan and got the info from him, then he be like: crap, I tortured her before. Well, this is gonna be awkward.
