I really don't understand the bashing here at this point. I've heard numerous complaints about Anakin and PadmÃ©'s bad dialogue, acting, etc...I personally think they did a great job in capturing the character of Anakin and PadmÃ©. Think about it. In the story, Anakin is a Jedi, who isn't allowed to love. How is he supposed to know what to say, and make the smoothest moves? He has almost no practice in this! And look at PadmÃ©! She has lived a life of service almost her entire life! At what point does she learn how to deal with guys? I think people's standards of current acting and dialogue are the reasons behind these thoughts. But what you over look is that the story means for these two to have bad acting and dialogue. They have no experience in this kind of thing. Sure, the scenes may be awkward, the dialogue may be wooden, and you may not like it, but this is their first experience in love. You people just have your standards set too high.
