Anakin Skywalker & Frollo

Let’s consider  the Star Wars Prequel for a moment. Before the movies came out everyone wanted to know how Anakin went for being a nobel Jedi knight to an evil jerk called Darth Vader. However the way the “seduction” to dark side occurs in the Prequels was just stupid. Anakin was basically a bad-apple who was tricked into it because he couldn’t stand loss and didn’t have the power to fix his problem. It was lame.

There was also the his relationship with Padme.  Basically Anakin pressures Padme to giving into him by having a romantic/sexual relationship. But Anakin feels nothing about ignoring the Jedi doctrine  on having romantic attachments. Here is where I think Geogre Lucas should have taken a page from the Hunchback (pardon the pun).

Frollo would have been the perfect model in which Anakin could have been seduce by the Dark Side. Frollo starts out as upstanding nobel priest who worked hard to gain respect. However he really couldn’t capture people’s hearts but he maintained good and charitable acts. However once he saw a young girl he was undone and started to commit horrible acts in the pursuit of her.

Not that I think Anakin should have done the same same things as Frollo but the torment of love for a women should have been there. He should have had more conflict between his desire for love and and his Jedi training. In Episode II, which was the core of the Love story takes place, there is no conflict for him. He begs for sex and Padme uses her career as an excuse. It was so dull and awkward.  The torment would have added so much drama and sympathy for Anakin just like Frollo
