Having Qui-Gon go against the Jedi Code, be gay, and have an affair with Darth Maul is all certainly possible, but somehow it just feels like several bridges to far for me.

I’ll just continue spitballing ideas here:

Qui-Gon sacrifices himself to defeat Maul. Show him push a button on Maul’s wrist the moment he gets stabbed, that activates the ray-shield, so that Obi-Wan can take a free hit on Maul, either killing him instantly or gaining a winning advantage.

Or let Obi-Wan take the other half of Maul’s lightsaber to cut him in half. Him using a red blade to take revenge would be a great detail and pretty easy to do. Just change the color of the blade and replace the close up of qui-Gons saber.

Use some material from the Gungan battle for a prologue.
Have the Droid army go against the Gungan before the movie starts and introduce Jar Jar as a leader type of character, who ran away. Make Him Boss Ness’ son maybe, to explain why he was in this position in the first place. He would now not be a baffoon, but a coward, who wants to redeem himself. So he chooses to guide Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to the Gungan, without hesitation and chooses to take the dangerous path through the core to save time. This would build up to the moment he convinces Amidala to go back and fight.

Great ideas, Peter Pan! I’m especially a fan of the third one. It recontextualizes Jar Jar in an interesting way without needing to change his character at all. You could make the battle the opening scene right after the crawl.

Really don’t like the first though. Maul having a button for the shield generators on his wrist is dumb on several levels, as it Qui-Gon sacrificing himself to deactivate it some Obi-Wan can kill Maul instead of just killing him himself.

Make one of Maul’s blades blue and let him use the blue blade in his first fight with Qui-Gon on Tatooine. This way it is left ambiguous whether he is just a dark jedi or whether the Sith really are back.
