So, from pure and good intentions, turns out causing dreadful repercussions. Again, that is a theme that already played out in TPM. And again, we are discussing a character who's role to the SAGA is now over - and more or less was over at the end of TPM. Bail had just as much political weight in the Senate as Padme. Possibly, more. And there is nothing to suggest that the script couldn't have been mildly tweaked in only two short scenes to achieve the desired effect. And none of us would have known otherwise, or missed otherwise. That's my opinion. And it is one that stems from my love of the 6 movie Saga, not one based on the OT, the PT, AOTC or a single character.
