Although GL gave us an excellent movie, I believe that he should have someone else write the love story part. I know that he didn't want to make it a Titanic or some other dramatic love story, but like others have said, it felt sort of rushed. Like Anakin was literally pushing himself on Padme to make her love him. I don't know if this was what GL was intending with the love story, but it felt to me like Padme was truly in love with Anakin, but she wanted to take things slow and Anakin wanted things to happen right away. But hey, I remember being a teenager in love and saying and doing really, and I mean REALLY stupid things. Chock it all up to hormones I guess and you might get why Anakin acted the way he did. This along with all the turmoil happening all at once in his life at this point.
