    Episode I should have been about the Clone Wars (clone troopers versus jedis...not stinking malnourished droids). The first act of the movie could about Quigon and Obi Wan meeting a teenage Anakin who helps them out on a mission. Seeing that the force is strong with him, Quigon decides to train him to the ways of the force. The second act of the movie could be about his training. And the third act could be about Anakin failing on his mission but Obi Wan saves him and saves the Galaxy frim Darth Maul (but us noy killed). Instead of gratitude, Anakin resents that he didn't get the glory.

    Episode II could be about Palpatine seducing Anakin to turn away from the Jedi and become his apprentice. hr accepts and is given by Palpatine a taste of the power of the dark side, which Anakin use to vanquish Darth Maul in front of his new master. Act 3 of the film could be about Anakin secretly killing Jedis....and Obi Wan and Quigon saving the day but is oblivious to Anakin's treachery.

    Episode 3, after numerous jedi killings Anakin is discovered, and is confronted by Quigon...the jedi master defeats him, but feigning defeat, Anakin cowardly strikes Quigon while his guard is down killing his master just as Obi Wan discovers Anakin's treacherous act. Obi Wan fights and defeats Anakin but cannot bring himself to kill his friend. Then Palpatine rescues Anakin and turns him into Darth Vader. The ending could be Palpatin and Vader defeating the Republic because all the Jedis have been slaughtered by Vader except for Yoda and Obi Wan....ohhhhh and Natalie Portman gives birth to twins because 9 months before she let a cocky Jedi give her his throbbing lightsaber. She gives them up for adoption. KING Organa adopts one girl. A peasant moisture farmer, wanting a helping hand on the farm without paying him wages adopts a boy who will grow up wanting to be a pilot but his uncle would rather have him waste his youth fixing up droids and bartering with jawas. This boy's only form of recreation is shooting wombats.

This is really close to how I would have redone the three movies as well. I think the biggest thing is that everything that turns Anakin to the dark side should be compressed into one movie, to really highlight the anguish that drove him over there. His mother's death, not losing Padme, any feelings of betrayal by the jedi, etc.
And if that is all in the second movie, the third movie can have extended time at the end with Darth Vader in his armor going after jedi.
