Yeah he did pause there, almost like he had other names racing through his head.
"darth vapid...no nono...vapor...NO...vegas. Ah Wait! Vader!"
From the moment Sidious exposed himself as a Sithlord to Anakin to the moment Anakin became Darth Vader was the BEST direction Lucas had done throughout the prequels. My god I thought it would never happen, some damn good drama...*appalauds*
