Yeah, someone brilliant and devious enough to figure out that they're both named "Skywalker"...
is it public knowledge in the SW universe that Darth Vader == Anakin Skywalker? Did anyone beyond Obi-Wan and Yoda know and survive?
Mace Windu ?
Presumably he's dead.

I was referring more to the fact that it shouldn't have been that hard for Vader himself, or the Emperor, to figure out that a Tattooine-dwelling boy named Skywalker might be related to him. I'm hardly the first person to offer that criticism of what the prequels established, so I thought people would get the joke.
The fannish explanation of that is that Tattooine was chosen since it was somewhere to which Anakin would never want to return due to what happened with his mother. Whether that makes sense, I dunno.
