No, you are being defensive. He was awful in every frame. From the Attack of the Clones delivery in the elevator, to his dialogue with Amidala, the sand bit, his ranting....oh, hell, it just goes on and on in that film.
Revenge of the Sith: "you turned her against meee!"
"this is the end for you, my master"
and the worst of all: "i have brought pEEEACE, freedom" bit before the duel. Horrible. It is no wonder his character was so hated.
