One of the biggest problems I have with Attack of the Clones is the scene where Anakin confesses to Padmé about the Tusken massacre. It doesn’t make any sense to me. I mean, how can Padmé say absolutely nothing after Anakin confessed to her killing women and children? Being silent in front of such a thing is not what Padmé would do, especially since she has never been racist towards aliens. Furthermore, the scene contradicts Revenge of the Sith, in which we see Padmé upset when she learns that Anakin killed many innocent people (including children) in the attack on the Temple.
However, although the scene doesn’t make any sense, I think it helps Anakin’s character, because it helps us understand how he feels inside, it helps us understand his frustration. So I was thinking of an idea to solve the problem and keep the scene without letting Padmé know about the Tusken massacre, which is to put a hologram of Palpatine instead of Padmé and have Anakin confess his actions to Palpatine instead of Padmé (wich by the way would make a lot more sense, and help flashing out Anakin and Palpatine’s relationship). This thing would take a lot of CGI and a lot of work, but I think it could be done. If someone good at special effects were interested, I’d like to know what could be done about it. This way, Palpatine’s line in Revenge of the Sith, “Do you remember what you told me about your mother and the sand people?”, would be waaaay deeper.
