Yes, that is very very true. The people who hate early Luke bitches about him then. The people who love early Luke bitches about him afterwards. There's no win-win situation for those type of people who like to ignore character development and simply wants a perfectly awesome character 100% of the time.

But yeah, thank you for clearing up the airing situation Schneizel.

Have to wonder why his parents didn't put more into forcing him to learn. Know he lost pretty much all his memories, but would have expected him to know more than he does. Though fact is that his purpose on some level is an excuse to explain things to the viewers/players.

There is only so much slack I personally feel like cutting him. Unless he wanted to learn a lot of things and no one wanted to help him. The environment he had after the memory loss is important. But can't just give Luke no responsibility for ending up with the attitude and personality he currently has.
All the technical stuff about fonons and whatnot are far too technical or specialized, but Luke isn't even familiar with the general background of those concepts. Most likely, only those things which are needed for his way of life were taught to him (e.g., etiquette, the ways of nobility, etc.). Maybe a little bit of history, I'm not sure, but definitely common language as was mentioned before.

Basically, his mother spoiled him and his father (and I assume the King) made sure that he wouldn't be kidnapped again while granting him everything that he needed... not necessarily on what he really wanted, which is freedom.

But they say "wa". That's what's important to us, foreigners.
In most languages, "h" is pronounced "h" as in "happy", not "w" as in "witch", so the romanization "wa" is more logical.

Cause he's an idiot Ep 7 has pretty much explained why. And the reason is that Luke is still a totally immature moron. Cliche dictates that he'll do something terribly stupid and will get betrayed by his trusted mentor, after which he's gonna become a decent person eventually I mean, that's how those cliches go, haven't played the game so I don't know

Simply put, Van makes the excuse that it was for his own good. And after all that Van has done for him, Luke unfortunately believes him.

Got to hand it to Van there, but then again it's not as if he had a hard time gaining Luke's unwavering loyalty, what with his way of life and the crowd he's been with.
