I don?t believe for a minute that Anakin?s love for his wife and unborn children caused him to fall to the dark side. But I do believe that the combination of the Jedi leadership?s unwillingness or inability to address the issue and Palpatine?s talent for exploitation set Anakin up perfectly for a downward spiral. I completely agree! Anakin has a very human desire to marry the woman he loves and his career essentially makes that impossible. I think the Jedi's hard stance on "attachment" contributes heavily to Anakin's ultimate decision to turn dark. He is responsible for his choice, but I know I can relate to his thinking on the matter. I thought Ewan's statement on this was very insightful. We've all made bad decisions due to the heat of the moment, or the emotional upheaval of a situation. Okay, I have, I shouldn't speak for others, LOL! I get very sad when I think about what has to happen in Ep. 3. It's weird, but I almost dread seeing it. I will, of course, and more than once, but I know I'll cry!
