I think the simple answer for nearly every question on here is: They're all really, really old (the emperor included) and can't do much of anything anymore.

As for why Obi-Wan didn't train Luke: Kind of like what Glenn said, but more along the lines of the fact that Obi-Wan would have to come out of hiding to meet Luke and would end up showing his face to people living in imperial-controlled lands, even if it's just moisture farmers. Even if a handful of people saw his face, the Empire's chances of locating his hideout would go up dramatically. If this happened while Luke was a child it would be game over.
