To help you the viewer visualize.

In one of the "After Jedi" books the hand that Luke cut off made it through the Death Star's explosion and floated around in space until found by someone. The "Hand of Vader" still had force powers.

Duh, "invisible hand". Look it up, it's canon.
Also in ROTJ by the big windows Vader turned his back and made, like metal things fly at Luke. So he doesn't always use his hand.

More to the point, how come there are no doctors with stethoscopes in the Galactic Empire? You'd think one of them would have noticed that Padme was going to have twins and told the happy couple about it.

Okay, so maybe they have faster than light travel, walking tanks, and planet killing machines, but they never figured out 19th century medical instruments.

Maybe even Darth Vader would sense a disturbance in the force, like when he sensed Luke Skywalker, when his daughter was standing right in front of him in the first movie.



























Nah...

His force ghost still has all his limbs and digits, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Darth Vader can project the force without extending his arms.

However, because his arm was severed, he never had the ability to project Force Lighting, like The Emporer and Count Dooku.

The idea that Darth Vader was Luke's father didn't even exist until late 1978. "Darth Vader" wasn't meant to be a title, it was meant to be his actual name. Why else didn't Obi Wan address him as Anakin but as "Darth" when they fought in ANH? It's painfully obvious there was never any kind of master plan for Star Wars. Lucas just hobbled it together as he went, and he did a very poor job of it. The result is 6 movies full of plot holes.

"Hey guys, the rebels blew up the last Death Star by putting a torpedo into a small exhaust port. Let's lure the rebels to our new, incomplete Death Star where they fly multiple starfighters into a gaping hole and just blow up the core." Brilliant.

Probably reflex. He went the first ten years of his force training using his hand. Probably second nature.

Vader didn't know it was Luke. In ANH in the Death Star trench when Luke was using the Force to focus, Vader simply said, "the Force is strong with this one..."

But he didn't know it was Luke. That it was Luke was revealed to Vader and the Emperor after the Battle at Yavin.

Leia never used Force powers prior to his fight with Vader in RotJ, that is why it was a surprise to Vader.

But...you do have to wonder why Anakin and Padme never had an ultrasound done.

I disagree with you here; Lucas always knew Vader was Luke's dad. First, the name Vader which means "father" in German. Also, watch Kenobi's face when luke asks about his father on Tatooine - you can actually watch Obiwan processing, deciding not to tell Luke. Guinness is a solid actor.

I agree though that they were thinking of Darth as a name, not title. Although you could say that Obiwan said it mockingly, as if the title Darth was more important than his name.

There's a book called "The Secret History of Star Wars" that goes into detail about when they decided to make Vader Luke's father.

Appendix C: The Dark Father -- examines the validity of claims of Lucas developing "Father Vader" before 1978
