...why some ppl don't like this movie? It shows Anakin's first steps toward the dark side. Isn't that just a tiny bit important? And even if for some reason they don't care about that, what about Padme? Surely after seeing Ep. III, they can look back and realize that she is a big reason why Vader appears? Can anyone explain this to me?

I think the romance angle gave a feel that Anakin was a normal young fellow. It is something that made him seem real to an audience. It likely appealed to the women in the audience the most. I for one found it an interesting part of the plot because it does explain what drove Anakin to his final decision. It also brings up some pretty unexpected issues about the Dark Side, associating the Dark Side with Love. The Jedi are celibate which says that those who want to marry are a bit Sith. Interesting. I wonder if moviegoers who are married look at their wedding rings and go, "This makes me more Sith!"
Lucas, being a smart movie maker, did not drag out the love scenes too long and bore the audience. Still, the action was dominant in the film. He did it just enough to make love part of the plot.

I agree with Empress Palpatine 100%. I could not have said it better. I for one loved Ep.II. If it were not for Ep.II I would still be a Jedi. Befor Two My faverate charector was Qui-gon Jinn and Luke Skywalker. Anakin was so attractive in every way I switched to Vader. Anakin brought me with him on his journy to the darkside.
I stand by his side. Together we are one. We serve the Emporer.
