Re: Question to those most disappointed with the SW prequels
Padme had just seen the fall of the Republic, she's been told that her husband has betrayed the Jedi and killed younglings and he just tried to kill her. And while many women do in fact love their new born children, many women also develop postpartum depression and in Padme's case it would seem to be justisfied.
You can also see the long distance connection between Padme and Anakin in the scene just before he leaves the temple to save Palpatine. She appears to looking at him in the temple as he's thinking about Palpatine's words about saving Padme's life.
