This is one of my biggest problems w/ AOTC. There doesn't seem to be any continuity in character. Now I know that in TPM Anakin was a little boy and in AOTC he is a young adult/teenager and that we all change drastically in those 9-10 years. But there doesn't seem to be any common traits or characteristics between the two. He went from a nice, selfless, caring boy into an arrogant, self-centered, unappreciative jerk. I just felt the change in character was too drastic. It leaves the audience wondering why such a dramatic shift in character w/o any real explanation for it. I may be nitpicking here, but I just really disliked the character of Anakin as portrayed in AOTC. He displayed none of the redeeming qualities that Obi-Wan described to LUke.
