They literally tried to hunt them to extinction, hahaha. Order 66 is explicitly the opposite of recruitment. I know the prequels are considered bad, but they happened.I'm pretty sure you're trolling on this point. However, just for arguments sake, I'll bite.
Episodes 3 and 6 throw that in your face as the pieces of the final plot. Episodes 2, 4 and 5 also show Palpatine manipulating Anakin/Luke into recruitment as part of the underlying story, to an extent Episode 1 does too, but not much. It's literally one of the bigger sub-plots in the original trilogy and the major plot in the prequel trilogy.
I'm sure it happens in Episodes 7, 8 and 9 too. I've blocked out 99% of those trash films from my mind.
