This is assuming that Padme is pregnant during Episode III, which is the most likely possibility. It's going to be Yoda and Obi-Wan and Bail Organa (and possibly Mace) who fake Padme's death. Why? Because they have to convince Palpatine she's dead as well. "The Emperor knew, as I did, that if Anakin were to have any offspring, they'd be a threat to him" - or whatever. We have to assume that Palps knows Padme is pregnant. Knowing Anakin's strong connection (obsession) emotionally with his family, Palpatine wouldn't want anyone hanging around who could distract Vader from being a Sith. Either Palps tries to have her killed and the Jedi prevent it, yet still convince him she died, or else the Jedi fake her death - and possibly their own as well. This makes the Skywalker twins safe from the clutches of the Sith, yet undoubtedly Palps, whether or not he tries to have Padme killed himself, will use this to help Anakin turn to the Dark Side. Palps: "It was Obi-Wan who was responsible for Padme's death, Anakin - he was supposed to be watching over her!" Thoughts? Praise? Flames?
