Scene swap

Why: Ok, although I liked the scene with Anakin and Padmé having a brief political chat and hugging with all of Coruscant shimmering behind them, this scene is ultimately un-needed. No new information is gained save for the fact that Anakin doesn’t want to go against Palpatine, but we pretty much know that already.

I think it would be far more interesting to include a modified deleted scene where Padmé is sitting with a group of senators and discussing the politics of the Republic. This would shed more light on the events going on and help in adding more weight to the creation of the Empire. It also makes the movie flow more logically and smoothly.

Another scene I see as a candidate for a swap is the scene of Anakin and Padmé talking about how Anakin feels like he’s lost, etc. This could be replaced with the scene where Obi-Wan visits Padmé, as mentioned below. Anyways, this is just an abstract idea.
