Before Episode 2 was released whenever I seen Vader in the classic trilogy I could never see Anakin, just a mechanical human. Now after seeing AOTC and getting to know the adult Anakin, when I see Vader I see a (tortured) Anakin below all that machinery. I have a new sense of sorrow for Anakin knowing what pain he must be going through under all that machinery. Episode 2 has really changed the way I look at the original trilogy in many ways. But I don't have any sorrow for Palpatine though, thats for sure.
