BOTH Obis????

That's it, put the bottle down, U'r seeing double again. :D :D :D j/k

The british accent was used because it's a more sofisticated language for an empire to use (don't get me wrong, not'n wrong wi' american :D ), and it is a remenecance from the Old Republic days. For the movies it also helped to distinguish between the bad and the good guys.
