That's why I don't get it when people say they wanted to see an Anakin in the prequels more like Kylo Ren.[/size][/font][/color][/background]
I've said that repeatedly.
It's not a literal plot desire, it's more performance and character traits than anything else. Yes, when we meet Kylo he was already deep in-- but we know the back story and can fill in some of the blanks.
I would have preferred a TPM with a totally innocent Anakin, who has one outbust of anger in the mix somewhere, but it's a scary one. In AOTC he's like Luke-- he's considered one of the best at what he does, he's gotten cocky-- but where Luke was impatient, Anakin would be angry. The ROTS Anakin would have been like Kylo Ren-- that anger coming to the surface, his ego taking over. Him killing Padme the way Kylo killed Han.
You all know I could talk for pages about my issues with the PT, but one of the biggest ones is that Anakin never does anything to truly make us hate him. Yes, he kills younglings has Sith eyes and stabbed Shaak Ti in a cut scene-- but none of that has any real weight in the story. Those are characters we don't know really, or care about. Had he killed Padme, that would have been a pivotal moment that tells us he's legit evil.
The more I think about the prequels, the more I think it should have been Anakin's fall. Basically flat out the fall. Not his discovery, not his rise. Start it with a 25 year Anakin who is already done with his training. He is the epitome of the perfect Jedi. Then the 2nd movie is his struggling with temptation. The 3rd movie is a last ditch effort by his friends to bring him back which ultimately fails when he does something truly terrible, killing Padme.
The same thing goes with the overall plot too, start us knee deep in the Clone Wars.
Star Wars works best when it's somewhat dealing with the fall out from other major events. Even if you wanted to keep the basic structure of the prequels, TPM should start later. It should start with the good guys arriving on Tatooine. Think about this: The crawl from ANH tells us an exciting story, Rebels from a hidden base won a battle and stole plans to a weapon and are now being chased by bad guys! That's exciting, hell is the third act of Rogue One, which is great.
Compare that with TPM which tells us the most boring crap ever. Now what if the crawl of TPM told us of the first act of that movie? What if the crawl said something like "The peaceful planet of Naboo has been invaded by the droid armies of the evil, greedy Trade Federation/However 2 Jedi Knights, the keepers of peace and justice throughout the Galaxy helped the young Queen of Naboo in a daring escape/During this escape their ship recieved severe damage and is unable to make the long journey to safety, hoping to find help they head for the desert planet of Tatooine...."
You feel like you are being dropped in the middle of something exciting.
