I always thought they ran an underground sex cavern on the moons of Bogden.

Seriously: I figured they'd be dignitaries for Alderaan or something - not the creation of Darth Vader and a simple Astromech.

Your thoughts?

I did not think Anakin constructed See-Threepio, nor that he originated from or had visited Tatooine prior to Star Wars.

Even though there was a television series that delved somewhat into their backstory (which I never watched until recent years/generally ignored) I'd never really thought about where they came from. I always assumed he and Artoo had just been together since the beginning. Lucas diminished that magical aspect of their characters by having them meet in Episode I.

I thought C-3PO was a well versed Senator's aide involved in high end politics.

I just thought R2 was a astromech on a ship.

I personally loved how R2 came into play in the sequels. Threepio, on the other hand, was a bit contrived. :S

Artoo and Threepio meet in the NPR radio drama, if memory serves.
