I notice that quite a few of you have a problem with Padme. While I don't see her as one of the BEST SW characters ever, I don't understand the contempt shown by some people. Did she not live up to your expectations? I noticed they were high before the film came out. Personally I liked her. She was a decent character who I connected with just fine. If there was any complaint I had it was that she didn't quite jump out at me enough. But that's fine, she isn't that type of character I guess.
