Anakin/Vader should do more “hunting and destroying the Jedi Knights”, which Order 66 prevents from happening by making the Jedi die like wimps.

If only order 66 happened in Attack of the clones. I’d love if Revenge of the Sith focused on Anakin hunting the jedi and having Obi wan

I always had this idea in my head of anakin acting disheveled and a jedi bringing anakin into his hut. He tells anakin “I heard stories, they said you were killed at the temple”.
They sit and talk sharing war stories, anakin asks questions about the other jedi and where they are scattered to. He shares a holocron with Anakin.

Then the tone shifts and the Jedi realises in shock that the enemy is Anakin, he goes for his lightsaber but anakin strikes him down in a flash.

The scene from Inglorious Basterds in the bar, that’s the type of thing it would feel like.

He only becomes suited Vader at the end, but by the end he has given up, he wants Obi wan to kill him, but he just leaves him in the state we see him in on Mustafar, it’s only because of Palpatine he continues to live.

Well I don’t see a way to move Order 66 to AOTC but you could add a time jump to ROTS. Or stretch the timespan between Anakins turn + Order 66 and the final duel to maybe a week and make a scene or montage of him fighting some Jedi. The slaughter of the separatist should work as a template, maybe add some lightsabers to some of them and you should be good to go.

Now for the structural change.
The seeds of Rebellion plot line would fit perfectly to bridge the time gap and maybe show how things changed, especially the final scene with Anakin and Padme on opposing sites would be great in this context. (though Palpatine would need a deepfake to get his wrinkly face)

After the senators realized that the won’t achieve anything in the senate, some of them leave with Bail, who made contact with Obi-Wan and Yoda.

The two of them were lead to a small Jedi Temple on some outer rim world, because of a beacon sent by a surviving Jedi. But upon their arrival they find all Jedi to be dead and see a recording of Anakin killing them. Afterwards they change the beacon and contact Organa.

after that they meet up with him on Mustafar where the senators have met in secret. And Palpatine dispatches Vader to sniff out this “rebellion”. But after he arrives he meets Padme and Obi-Wan and the fight ensues.

Something like that should be feasible, what do you think?

P.S.:
By the way, I just realized how stupid the original trap to lure in rouge Jedi was.
I mean sure, ask them to come home and lower their guard after publicly declaring your intention to annihilate them. 10/10, just perfect

I’ve actually suggested a similar idea before, but you could potentially replace Anakin killing the Separatists leaders with Anakin killing a group of Jedi that have rendezvoused on Mustafar.

First, you would have to cut Palpatine telling Anakin to go to Mustafar after he has killed all the Jedi in the temple, and then Anakin telling Padmé that he is going to Mustafar to “end this war”.

Instead of Anakin calling Palpatine after he’s killed the Separatists, you could replace that hologram with a Republic/Imperial officer telling Palpatine that they’ve received reports that a group of Jedi have been spotted on Mustafar. Then, Anakin just tells Padmé that he’s going to Mustafar for a very important mission.

This would be the hard part, but you could potentially have actors dress as Jedi and film in front of a green screen, then create new shots to replace them with the Separatists. You could even have someone dress as Anakin, and since Anakin has his hood on in this scene, you could just avoid the body double’s face.

Though if you were going through all of that effort, it might just be better to make a “Darth Vader hunting Jedi” fan film.

One general suggestion that’s been brought up before, but probably not for a while: insert actors in real, physical clonetrooper armor. It it could be done convincingly, just a handful throughout AOTC and ROTS (at least in some backgrounds, but ideally replacing some in foreground shots) would go a long way toward making the films feel more tactile and making the CGI troopers more palatable.

I’d love to see a short subplot following a clone squad during Order 66 inserted. Something along the lines of Bad Batch or Seige of Mandalore, but shorter and more in line with the tone of ROTS.

Another idea I had was making Anakin confess the Tusken slaughter to Palpatine, and keep it a secret from Obi-Wan and Padme.

I wonder if you could add Sifo Dyas to TPM by tweaking sidious’ holograms and keep only his scene with Maul on coruscant as a cameo.

The tricky thing might be to write and record Sifo Dyas new dialogue so that it is evident that he is merely the messenger and not the real mastermind.
Other than that there could be some opportunities to hint at his real identity, for example it could be him that warns Gunray that the ambassadors are Jedi knights or he could propose to buy a better army.
Cough, cough, clones or something, cough, cough.

I always thought “Sifo Dyas” was Dooku, considering Obi-Wan confirms that the real Sifo Dyas died before the clone army was ordered.

Not that that necessarily impacts on your idea - just cut those lines from AOTC and it’s fine.

Thats another thing, because sifo Dyas sounds just like sidious, there might be some options to make Dooku mention him.
