And a lot of the time it's just preachy nonsense, not to mention that they're not doing anything to help justify Anakin's eventual turn (because Episode III certainly does not do that on its own).
Agreed about the Anakin part as that was the one thing about the movie that was so stupid. I could understand Anakin being fearful of losing Padme but using that as a justification for him betraying the Jedi and killing kids was just Snidely Whiplash levels of implausible villain sue nonsense. It would have been better if Padme had been killed before he completely lost it and he killed her murderer which would set him against the Jedi and cause him to turn over to Darth Sidious's cause.
