I personally think too much time was spent on Anakin and Padme's relationship and some of that time could have been diverted to making Anakin and Obi-Wan's friendship stronger. And I say that as someone who likes Anakin/Padme fine.
All things die, Anakin Skywalker, even stars burn out.

Those without swords can still die upon them

I quite agree; I would have loved to have seen more Anakin/Obi Wan interplay between them. I do think, though, that Ep III had just enough scenes to highlight the bond between them. The post-Dooku fight scene, the lift rides, the scene of Obi Wan's departure come to mind. Though, certainly, it would have been nicer to have had more of that in AOTC. But as it is, I'm okay with it. Mostly.
I am a Star Wars fan. That doesn't mean that I hate or love Jar Jar. That doesn't mean I hate or love Lucas, or agree or disagree 100% with him. That doesn't mean I prefer the PT over the OT, or vice versa. That doesn't mean I hate the EU, or even love all of it (or even read all of it). These are not prerequisites. Being a man is not a prerequisite. Being a geek is not a prerequisite. The only prerequisite is that I love something about Star Wars. I am a Star Wars fan.

Well I can go on for ages about Anakin. I'm not an expert in movies or anything, and I am not that kind of Star Wars fan who knows everything about Star Wars, so I'll just give you my honest opinion. I love Anakin, from the beginning till end.
Let's start with the little boy. "Are you an angel?" that line got me. It was so sweet! But I do agree that it wasn't a very good start when he bragged about being the first human in Podraces. Anyway I like the little boy Annie for the fact that he was very determined, and that the fact that he was a child didn't set him back. He lived one hundred percent. It was a brave decision of him to leave his mother for training to be a Jedi, but that only shows how strong a mind he had! Anakin in AOTC, well I liked him well enough, but his rebelling wasn't very good for a Jedi. Then we skip ahead to ROTS. I loved the scenes on Mustafar, and even though it was sad I loved the scene where he strangled Padme. His love for her killed her. It was filled with emotion for me, and I think it was really sad that Anakin had to burn half to death. But hey, that had to happen or the whole DV thing wouldn't have happened. In the end of ROTS, when the newly formed DV yells "noooooooo!" when he finds out Padme is gone just shows that he still cared for her.
I think that to sum DV up, he was just very misunderstood. He had turned evil for a good cause. He loved Padme so much that it led him to the Dark Side. That is truly sad, but all in all I loved Anakin and DV, one yet two completely different characters.
To be angry is to be human. All mentors have a way of seeing more of our faults than we would like. It's the only way we grow. ~Padme Amidala~
