Okay, I'm convinced, about your reasons.
But the way LucasArts portrayed it was terrible, the whole Count Dooku thing with his battle droid army seemed like a distraction.
Plus, they should have kept Darth Maul.
He was a Darth and was killed by an apprentice?
Impossible.

Thats just it, the whole war was just one big farce so Palpatine could get into power as Supreme Chancellor. Then get emergancy powers, get his apprentice, wipe out the jedi order and take over the galaxy. That was his whole plan to begin with, start a fake war.

As for Maul being beaten by an apprentice....thats not really true, he was beaten but not killed(see TCW). Plus by that time, Obi-Wan was pretty much a jedi knight he just hadn't yet taken the trials yet to be official.

Darth Maul had managed to kill a Jedi Master, but not a Jedi Knight?
Really... A Dark Lord of the Sith beaten by the apprentice of the master Maul just killed.

He let his guard down. A rule of fighting, you NEVER let your guard down. EVER.

The fall of Anakin is too weak of a storyline, because Revenge is the main theme of the Trilogy's, seen in the scene we first meet Darth Maul, in Episode IV where Luke seeks to avenge his father's death, and the original title for Episode VI wad, "Revenge of the Jedi" To carry that theme forward, Anakin should have sought revenge against the Jedi for the death of Padme, making a better storyline.

The Jedi had nothing really to do with the death of Padme. Anakin did. Anakin had a choice to leave the Sith behind when Padme came to mustafar. He didn't listen. He was more concerned at that time on power than staying with Padme. Then he got jealous because Obi-Wan came out of the ship. Instead of listening to Padme that she didn't know he was there what did he do? He choked her and most likely would have killed her if Obi-Wan hadn't told him a few times to let her go.

When he let her go did he go and check on her to make sure she was alright? No, Obi-Wan did. Obi-Wan showed more concerned for Padme than her husband did. Anakin is the reason Padme died not anyone else.

Just another case of a self-fulfilling prophecy with Anakin's vision of Padme's death. It's a wonder that very few Jedi actually figured out in thousands of years that the Visions are NOT set in stone. They're a warning of what MIGHT happen. What COULD happen. Not what WILL happen. Jedi should learn this as Padawans, in fact. "If you get a vision, let someone know about it. It's a warning or caution, It is NOT GUARANTEED TO HAPPEN." If someone had said that to Anakin during his training, it might have helped a bit.

I agree with another poster who compared it to a Greek tragedy. Same elements in place, driven by stupidity. For the record, I would never call it a Shakespearean style tragedy, as that would be a dire insult to The Bard.

Although I must also add that the worst Greek tragedy was better written than the Prequels.
