Why is Vader crying?

After Vader slaughters the remaining Confederate leaders they show him overlooking the lava river on Mustafar, but you can tell he's crying by the tears that are running down his face, but why is he crying? I would like for everyone's opinion..

Helpful! 
The overwhelming emotion of finally fully embracing the darkside?

Maybe he is kind of having a "LS moment" and is upset over all the things he has done, and how he is gone too far.

Other than that, it would have to be either what Terros said, or maybe a Seperatist kicked him in the nads and he is still feeling it (couldn't resist ).

I think it's inner conflict. He doesn't want to embrace the dark side, but he feels he has no choice. The good within him is telling him to stop, but he cannot.

He knows what he's doing is wrong, but he "must" to save Padme.

I never noticed him crying, to be honest.
If he was, it's probably (like SirLancelot said) the conflict between the good in him and Darth Vader.

Anyway, if anything, he should be moaning at doing the Star Wars equivalent of a high school massacre. Not killing the enemy. I mean, would you cry if you single handed wiped out the Iraqi insurgancy?

He knows what he is doing is wrong but he knows that it is the only way he can save Padme, and he cares about her more than a bunch of seperatist leaders and everybody else he killed.

"conflict" is definitely the important word here... remember ROTJ

Luke: ..."I feel the good in you...the conflict"
Vader: "There is no conflict..."

Later on..

Vader: "Tell your sister, you were right about me...."

He's sad because he's run out of people to kill and the fun's over! He's a psychopath...

if you have to ask why he was crying then, well, you wouldnt understand it without a lot of psychobabble.

however:
ever do something then when you reach a certain point it hits you like a ton of bricks that you just fudged up, but also not knowing how to correct it or even knowing if you want to correct it? he was having one of those moments.

It's the same reason that Jack Bauer is crying in his car at the end of 24 season 3(?)

I Agree with Commander Obi-Won because if Padme had died. Anakin felt a loss for her and was overwhelmed by emotions.

Vaderski isn't crying. (Atleast I didn't notice any tears, though the focus of that moment was on his eyes)

But if he is, it is prolly because he has had to kill onion-skinned aliens.

LOL! Vader is crying, you need to what very closely. If the copy you have and/or seen is just a bad-quality copy I suggest you to buy the DVD.

lol, yeah so why have all these people been posting explanations? Of course he was crying.
You don't even have to watch closely skywalke, it's pretty obvious.

Maybe he was sad about Padme dying. Or maybe he just has to go to the bathroom really badly and Sidious won't let him..

Ummm... he was crying before padme died. Were talking after he killed the seperatists leaders. He is crying becuase like LIAYD said, he knows what he is doing and he knows its wrong but he has done way to much to turn back now. Imagine living your whole life the good boy but then spontaneously killing a whole ton of people just to be able to save the person you love.

Uhhhh... I'm pretty sure this is explained in detail in the commentary to the DVD.

George Lucas states that it's the first time that he's had a chance to think about what he's really gotten himself into, and although he's trying to fool himself into rationalizing his decisions, he knows that what he has done is wrong. But he also knows he is trapped on an evil path he can't escape from.

lol, not this time.
He killed the CIS leaders, stood on some sort of balcony, sheds a tear sans the quivery lip (what RaV™ was refering to), and from that place he sees Padmes ship landing, and he goes to the landing pad meets her and says something like "I saw your ship landing" and gives her a hug, then Obi-Wan comes out and blah blah blah Force Choke blah blah blah.
