It's simple really. Anakin needed competition in AotC for Padme. I would have casted a younger actor as Bail Organa (don't get me wrong, I love love LOVE Jimmy Smits) and had Padme in a relationship with him coming into AotC. Anakin meets up with Padme again still having a childhood crush on her, but finds her with this politician guy: Bail. Not only does this give us a love triangle, which lets face it always does the trick, but also allows for the perfect opportunity for us to see shades of anger and jealousy in Anakin. Basically, instead of Anakin and Padme sitting around debating over how they'd be living a lie, we'd have Anakin stealing Padme from Bail, which in my opinion is a lot juicier and more entertaining. You set up Anakin as this bad-boy adventure-type who spices up Padme's boring politician life and you set up Bail as the good ol' dependable boring guy. By the end of AotC, Anakin has seduced Padme and they have eloped. Poor Bail. RotS I wouldn't really change too much. I'd probably add an explanatory scene at the beginning between Padme and Bail where we find out that Bail is also married now. Awkward moment, blah blah blah. Bail's part in RotS would pretty much be the same as the Jimmy Smits part except more concern on his part for Padme as things start going down the tubes. This would also make the scene where Bail takes Leia a lot more meaningful - showing he still really cares about her. I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I think it would be effective. So yeah, that's my idea, maybe I'm a little crazy, but oh well.
