Anyone know what Anakin's rank was before his fall to the Dark Side? I know Obiwan was a general, and that Luke was a commander and Solo/Calrissian were generals, but Anakin's rank (aside from Supreme Sith Badass) has eluded me. Anyone know?

As every Jedi known to lead the Republic armies in the clone wars was given the rank of General, Anakin was also a General back in the Clone Wars, prior to the time before Order 66 was initiated.
Later in the Clone Wars, during the Outer Rim Sieges, Obi-Wan and Anakin were only occasionally removed from one another, being dispatched as a team to various battlefronts, commanding the Open Circle Fleet and emerging as the victors every time. It was the Open Circle Fleet that arrived just in time during General Grievous' attempt to capture the Supreme Chancellor, which was of course planned by Palpatine himself all along.
So there you have it. General Anakin Skywalker. I hope that answers your question Kalkamel.
I understood that during the Clone Wars Jedi Knights and Masters were Generals whilst Jedi Padawans were Commanders. I recall Anakin being referred to as Commander. But I suppose once he got promoted to Jedi Knight he should have become a General.
