    Not in most of Europe, technically, but that's kind of beside the point. Still a topic we should probably move along from rather swiftly!!

    Clovis was originally meant to be the Paulo mentioned in Episode 2, according to the trivia for Senate Spy. Could this Paulo ever be revisited either in the show or EU as a legitimate 'blast from the past' challenge to the Padme-Anakin dynamic, or is that position firmly summed up by Clovis?

    To be specific the age is 16 in the UK but your right we should be moving on.

    Like I said Padme's charachter does not match with that .

    Btw who is Paulo never heard of him before ?

    I think Ahsoka should find out about it and keep it secret, just as Obi-Wan does. That Obi-Wan didn't speak up about their secret affair (which we now know is in part due to his own experiences with Satine) is one of his biggest failings, and leads to the fall of the Jedi Order.

    I think Ahsoka should make the same mistake Obi-Wan does.

    If they didn't want her to be involved in these conversations, why did they give her such revealing clothing and animate her in such a... hmm... I HAVE NOW DESTROYED THIS THREAD! :p

    Palo was with Padme on Naboo when she was young and apparently they had a brief relationship. Padme stayed in politics while Palo became an artist, so they went their separate ways. Think it's mentioned in AOTC in the Naboo Garden scene?

    I think they were in the meadow when she was talking about that.

    To be honest all I can remember from that scene in the film, is Anakin saying he likes fascist dictatorships, before riding a giant cgi pig :p

    I enjoyed it. They were having fun together, and he was picking on the political process, which I appreciated. I'm surprised that people take Anakin in that scene as literally "condoning fascist dictatorships", but that's another topic.

    Yes, Paolo was mentioned in that scene, a boyfriend Padme had when she was 12. His reappearance, with Anakin actually taking it as a threat, would have been monumentally stupid. She was 12.

    ?

    Anakin absolutely is condoning fascist dictatorships, that's a huge aspect of his personality. While Anakin is teasing Padme, it's also insight into his character.

    Really, that scene features Anakin's political views in a nutshell.

    Well Padme was also the dictator of Naboo when she was the queen, she also voted for not trusting Valorum because she thought he's weak. I don't think she totally dislike it but think it should have some limitation like certain term.

    I think he was naive as hell, and frustrated with what he saw of the political process.

    He may have had a cynical (and again) idea that if a democratic government was going to be so damn incompetent, maybe a dictatorship by a competent leader would be a better form of government.

    I think if Padme directly asked him if he condoned totalitarian dictatorship, he would have replied with an unequivocal "No! Of course not"--and he would mean it.

    But we can agree to disagree. My point as far as that scene goes is that his statement was primarily his teasing Padme with a bit of foreshadowing in it, and that she was never meant to freak out and think "OMG! He believes in totalitarianism!"

    Padme also asked for a strong leader in EP I, that's how Palpatine became the chancellor.

    Isn't it Obi-Wan and Satine?

    Because I like her and she's worth to let Anakin grow feeling.

    OK. I like her too, but what's wrong with Obi-Wan having feelings for her? Is there some reason the male in the relationship needs to be Anakin?

    I feel that any challenge to Anakin and Padme's relationship undermines Star Wars as a whole. Anakin was willing to destroy a galaxy for Padme because he loved her so much, a special kind of love, one that is stronger if Padme was his one and only.
    If Anakin liked other people it kind of ruins the point. "You ruined the lives of so many people for this and she wasn't even THE one?"

    They added many lovers for Obi Wan already, and the young (passionate and willing to stay for her)Obi Wan Satine loved changed a lot. But Anakin is different. He has what is gone from Obi Wan.
