ANAKIN GUILT TRIPS PADME OVER A KISS
There is a moment in Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones when Anakin leans in to kiss Padme as she takes in the beautiful scenery of her home planet, Naboo.
Padme briefly receives the kiss, but then quickly puts a stop to the young Jedi's advances.
Later, as Anakin is professing his love to the former Queen, he explains that the kiss is tormenting him and blames her for allowing it to happen.
This intense guilt trip he puts on Padme is unprecedented and does not make any sense. It is clear that Anakin is the one to initiate the kiss, without warning.
The young Jedi Apprentice should take some responsibility before pinning the cause of his angsty agony on his "true love".
ANAKIN DOESN'T LEAVE THE JEDI ORDER
We understand that Anakin is supposed to be the "chosen one" and we see his excitement when Qui-Gon decided to train him as a Jedi.
However, if Anakin's love of Padme is causing him so much agony, then why doesn't he leave the Jedi Order to be with her?
The franchise leans heavily on the "forbidden love" trope, but it is only forbidden because of a character's choice in career.
There is pressure on Anakin to bring balance to the force, so perhaps this is what happens when you put those expectations on a child.
Anakin should break free of the Order to become a mechanic on Naboo with Padme -- they could have had a happy life and a lot fewer people may have perished.
ANAKIN'S SAND PICK-UP LINE
There have been so many memes and jokes made about Anakin's infamous line "I don't like sand" that some fans have forgotten he turned it into a pick-up line.
After describing how coarse and irritating sand is, he looks at Padme and says "Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth."
The part of this interaction that makes no sense is that Padme would enjoy this comment.
She had just shared a fond memory with Anakin and instead of acknowledging her, he aggressively made the conversation about him and turned it into a gross pick-up line.
We have no idea how this conversation turned into a building block for their entire relationship.
