I agree about him being unstable. The fact that he is this emotional train wreck is where i just stop liking him.
I imagine if the war ended and he was home all the time with padme; she would divorce him.
Why she want to live with guy like that, when she could have kit fisto.
Except that she couldn't have Kit because Kit was following the code. Duh.
And there are emotionally unstable people in the real world, plenty of them. Ever go to a high school? There are
people who freak out in real life because their mother died, or the person they loved was not allowed to love them.
