    Was it Love...or was it Lust?

    Apparently, we are meant to believe that Anakin was in true deep love with Padme.

    I disagree. It wasn't love...it was OBSESSION which evolved into unhealthy LUST. Both are qualities indicative of PASSION which is just one of the major components that lead someone to the darkside. Love...TRUE love would never allow someone to take that road.


    No?

    Good points, I certainly hope that True Love would not lead someone to do for me what Anakin did for Padme . . . Padme herself even pointed out the horror of such behavior.

    At the same time though, I think Anakin DID love her. He chose the wrong path at the end of the day but I think he genuinely cared about her.

    I think it was love, he was concerned about her but it was on the lusty/obsessive side of things. Although who would want to lose a loved one? Especially if you're 20ish yrs old you have a wife and a kid on the way? In that sense I can't blame Anakin for wanting to protect her. One question though what was the love that Padme felt towards Ani? She likely thought he was a cute little kid the first time they met but then what? Was she also blinded that she couldn't see what was going on with Anners?

    I think it was both, but I too am leaning a little more towards the obsession angle myself. When Ani first meets Padme in TPM, its innocent enough. They share a few words and go their separate ways. As he is around her more in the film you can see where things are starting to develop, even at his young age. However later in AOTC we hear him make a comment to the effect of "I've thought about her everyday for the last 10 years"...that to me shows as Ani got older he began to obsess over her. When he saw her there in her quarters on Coruscant, all those feelings came out and from there he starts his quest to gain her attention and affection.

    no, Anakin was clearly the blind one as stated by Padme when they have their 4th grade discussion about "love" in their suite.

    Anakin did love her, but i think it turned to lust when he started to lean towards the dark side. you don't choke the ones you love, unless your a suspect on Cops. he lost it when Padme told him she loved him. Anakin called her a liar and didn't want anything to do with her. that sure as hell aint love. if it is, i would hate to see him with his kids.

    I agree with you darko, my comment was coming from the "she fell in love with him rather quick too" angle so what's up with that? (no comments from the peanut gallery on falling in love the first time you meet them etc)

    How about a pre-choking post 18 Padme!

    (P.S. choking Padme would make a relly cool fig, or Gentle Giant Bust)
    YES! That could be pretty cool! How about some sort of Unleashed set up similar to the Obi-Wan and Anakin figs? You could have Ani and Padme set up one way 'in love' and another 'choking'!
