I think the problem with the Star Wars prequels was that Anakin was such a douche I didn't care about him becoming Vader.
He isn't in the Clone Wars
TV show, but becomes distressed and agitated after being denied the rank of Jedi Master, and also because of the regulations against personal entanglements and the death of his mom. That would fuck me up but good-in fact, it would fuck anybody
up but good. Being a douche? More like a tragic hero who became a villain when things got out of control.
