I actually did do some work on Obi-Wan and Padme, particularly with these two clips:

Obi-Wan doesn’t want to kill Anakin

Pre-duel confrontation

It’s nowhere near as much as I did with Anakin, but their motivations in the third act are pretty fundamentally changed from the theatrical. It’s a reversal: Padme is the one who stands up to Anakin, while Obi-Wan is whose reluctant and remorseful. I don’t know if that’s what you meant, but I do think that lines up a bit more with the OT.

Yes, it does flow better and gives ObiWan and Padme more agency. Actually mine was more of an open question, not aimed at something particular.

Watching your videos it made me wonder if ObiWan couldn’t, instead of going to Padme’s to find Anakin to confront him, if he went to her looking for Anakin in worry for his safety and/or to recruit him to have him by his side in the task of defeating the emperor, leaving Mustafar as a bitter end and utter dissappointment for obiwan, who went all the way there yo recruit a powerful ally and ended up watching how a friend attempted murder against his wife, and only then confronted him. Of course ObiWan either shouldn’t know what Anakin did at all or should know after going to Padme’s…I think that if ObiWan didn’t know ir would leave only Padme as the one that put the puzzle together.

Perhaps ObiWan knowing and being accomplice about the couple could be stated earlier. Some send my regards to Senator Amidala as his last words on coruscant before boarding the venator leaving yo Utapau (after goodbye old friend)
