Think of THIS!

Obiwan goes out to find padme's killer' investigates the clone army, fights jango fett, does all the work, while anikin goes on dates with padme! maybie if the had went with obiwan, it would have made it less mushy and easier to follow!

Anakin is emotionally all over the place. Unlike other Padawans his age, he knew his mother and has a deep attachment and regret for not being with her. He fell completely in love with Padme, and is haunted by her - but realizes she views him as this little boy. He has some special status as 'chosen one' which gives him access to the Jedi Council his peers do not, but puts him at odds with his peers - he fits in nowhere. He has a father figure in Obi-Wan, but there is much that Obi cannot do for Anakin. He has survived by being arrogant and rash and brash ... and those are hard lessons to forget.

When he sees Padme, he becomes impulsive and impetuous ... seeing her blow him off makes him want to prove himself.

He is pulled in multiple directions the whole movie, and is in an emotional state where he can barely handle one direction. I think that Hayden nailed the performance - moody, sullen, whiny arrogant, and so on ... all rolled in one.

I think this has been said already, but...


The scenes were necessary to move the plot along, and timed well enough that it did not slow the story.

So I say there was not too much

I guess it's sort of boring those romance parts, still I do believe it's sort of important to the plot. They did a much better job with romance between Han and Leia.

I think that GL (George Lucas) did make a BIG mistake adding those "love" scenes to AOTC. I mean in 4,5,6 the romance between Han and Leia just fitted in, and it seemed natural. But love between a Jedi and some know-it-all bitch just doesn't fit.

if he hadn't added them in i don't think we would have gotten the same understanding of their relationship. Understanding their relationship helps us understand the characters, etc.

You're a child darthkangaroo, the love scenes were essential to the story (more so than Han and Leia). Grow up.

well, but they are poorly made... obviously bad acting is the problem, but also Geogie Lucas' Bad script when it comes to love scenes.

The romance scenes were a bit necessary for Luke and Leia to be Anakin's children... unless you are willing for Ep. III to be really, really dark and have a rape scene in it on top of everything else.
And even that wouldn't really work, since we have to believe that Vader actually cares about Luke in Ep. V and VI.

The dialog and some of the acting were clunky, but the scenes served their purpose: Getting Anakin and Padme together.
You couldn't just go through the whole movie with Anakin away from Padme and involved in non-stop action sequences, and then at the end, out of nowhere, show them getting married. Everybody would have said "Huh?!?? How did that happen?!??"
So, like it or not, you have to have romance in there somewhere.

I think that ROTS was to mushy, my dad laughed when she said "can't you see your breaking my heart" lol. That would have been funny if when Anakin was cutting here food that after he cut it he threw it at here lol.. Maybe thats only funny to me tho..
