The more I think about this set of cards, the less I like it :
As you wish and Dark Obsession are redundant. I know you can still play As you wish if you already have Dark Obsession, but then, you pay 1 agenda for 1 card, which is a bit expensive.
A Dark Power is OK early on, but a bit weak late game (2 agenda points for 5 threats is a much worse deal than many of the other +threat agenda cards).
So the only great card in the set is Dark obsession, but it offers zero benefits in all the missions already featuring Darth Vader(and one of the key mission just does feature Vader...).
So do you find it worth including this set of agenda card in your starting selection? It seems the most underwhelming to me, despite Darth Vader being one of my favourite skirmish pieces.

You are right. It's less useful later on. However there is a limited amount of influence you will earn through-out the campaign and you only draw 4 cards at the end of a mission to choose from.

It's possible you may never have the chance to buy one or the other or you may get multiple opportunities. It depends.

On the other hand you do have to win the mission or the Rebels have to decline it in order to receive Darth Vader permanently; which is not a totally for sure thing. The cheaper one guarantees at least one use.
