Revenge of the Sith: Anakin force-chokes Padmé
 
On Revenge of the Sith when Anakin is teeming with the dark side and loses his temper with his baby-mama, he decides to use the force to choke her into unconsciousness. What I noticed here was that Obi-Wan intervened and said, "Let her go, Anakin! Let her go." Well, I am one of those dudes who sometimes watches a movie and says to himself, "Self, wouldn't it be cool if that character had said this instead of that?"

It just so happens that at that point in the movie I thought it would have been supremely bad-to-the-ass if Obi-Wan had tried to get Anakin to stop by saying what he said, and then for Anakin to have completely ignored him. Then, Obi-Wan would have realized that Anakin was completely "gone" and was now Darth Vader. Hell, even Yoda told him that he was now Vader. Anyway, once Obi-Wan realized this, I think he should've said, "Vader! Release her!" at which point Vader would have dropped her and then the movie would continue on as is. This would be a throwback to the original trilogy and if they had had this line in the movie I would have jizzed in my pants.

Anyway, please reply with your thoughts on this. For the record, I loved Revenge of the Sith and I do not feel as if the movie is worse in any way without the line I have proposed. However, I do think it would have been better with it.

Thanks and have a great day!

Its a good point, but I doubt he would have let go any sooner,
Problem with it is that Obi-Wan still believed that Anakin could be turned back, or saved or something invloving not killing him. He might have tried to still talk to him as a friend by naming him Anakin instead of Vader, but who really knows...
\Have a nice day

It doesn't make too much sense why he'd call him "Vader" anyway, considering he'd only heard that name once in the security recording he saw a few minutes before leaving for the planet, if memory serves, as opposed to the name he'd called him for the 12 years they worked together.

Like rmars said, he belived he could be turned back. He even begged him to come back to the light, saying he could help him. Anakin wasn't truly lost (as proven in ROTJ), but he was overcome with Vader's rage and hate.

You want to know what I think should have happened?

Anakin chokes Padme.
Obi-Wan runs like hell out of the ship, tackling Anakin by the waist.

The woman. Is. Pregnant. In a galaxy far, far away, there may be magical ninja warriors, but there still isn't a cure for spouse abuse. :C

React instead of instruct, yes. To act when another does something that goes against your principles is always a better option. Obi Wan wasted a valuable opening here.

He is Vader afterall.
