Good LORD! I’m watching Clones now and I’d forgotten how completely wretched the Anakin/Padme scenes really are. The stuff on Naboo is perfect MST3K material.I can't agree with you about Sith (I find the whole fall of Anakin thing to be completely contrived and without any gravitas), but totally agree about the romance angle in Clones. It's just wretched writing, directing, and acting. The masochist in me is looking forward to seeing how much of it I remember.
