Don't be ridiculous. I'm not asking anyone to explain love. You said there are other reasons for them ending up together other than continuity, suggesting that their story has more depth. I...don't see it. In fact, the reason I bring it up is because I view their relationship as forced and coming together for the very same reasons you said that don't matter. I'm just curious as to why you think their relationship works because I find it very contrived and unbelievable. In fact, I view it as the most demeaning factor of the Prequels. For me, the love story just doesn't work.
