    -Nothing wrong with Jar Jar
    -Nothing wrong with the prequel trilogy
    -Luke was a brat
    -The Anakin/Padme romance should never have happend, she was what 13-14 years older than Anakin!
    -Yoda looked good in CGI

    Just 5 years older, actually. Anakin was 9 in Episode I, and Padme was 14.
    Which is frankly silly.

    Padme was the f***ing Queen, wasn't she? Why the F*** would they hand the Empire over to a 14 year old?

    Because they elected her, and the plot demanded it.

    1. There was no romance. Just the beginnings of a friendship.

    2. Nine year olds can find fourteen year olds attractive.

    I don't know what's more silly, the fact that they elected a 14-year-old queen or the fact that they elected a queen.

    It's a holdover from the past. They used to have a normal monarchy, but decided they preferred democracy. I don't remember how peaceful the transition was (too lazy to look it up), but they decided to keep the titles intact. It fit in with their architectural vibe.

    Why not name her President of Naboo if they're just going to make it a democracy?

    Because it fit with their architectural vibe, and tradition and stuff. Also, it sounds cooler for your protagonist to marry royalty than to marry a president of some backwater world.

    It's still ridiculous that they made a 14 year old Queen

    Not saying it would make sense in real life or anything, just offering the necessary feeble justification for the fiction.

    There is historical precedent for elected monarchs. For example, when the first crusade captured Jerusalem and decided to settle down there, the senior nobles elected a king.

    Yes, the 14 year old part is ridiculous.

    Even worse. Did they elect infants as monarchs?

    They've had younger monarchs than that in the real world.
    I guess they just didn't like to elect old men :D

    There is nothing wrong with old men, nor does age preclude wise or proper rule.

    It's slightly ridiculous that we apparently need rulers to rule us at all.
