** When they are floating over the molten lava on platforms, if you look there is a blue glow on the underside of the platforms indicating that they are using some sort of force fields to protect from the heat. The blue glow also extends up past the sides (and you also see miners standing on similar platforms in the lava lake). It seems that the platforms are designed to be stood on, and use force fields to protect the occupants. The station itself also had a similar blue glow, and when it was accidentally turned off, the entire place started to disintegrate. Also, at the conclusion of the battle, Anakin bursts into flames even though he is a good 10-15 feet away from the lava. So this is actually a very complicated aversion, where some technology is involved.

** [[spoiler:Padmé's death seemingly centered on a Force-choke from Darth Vader, which she clearly survived. It is explained in supplementary material that the Polis Massa, the aliens that Obi Wan and Yoda meet with in the epilogue, are supposedly not good doctors and do not know what the reason behind her dwindling health is. It is also explained in said supplementary materials that it was trachea damage they couldn't detect.]]

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates a 6, being the most violent ''Star Wars'' episode to date. Plenty of people lose limbs or heads bloodlessly and [[spoiler:Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) gets lit on fire by being too close to some lava, leaving him badly charred]].

** Anakin turned to the Dark Side because Palpatine promised that he knew a way to keep Padmé from dying. But when she learns what Anakin has done she confronts him, leading to him Force Choke her. In the end he becomes Darth Vader, has killed most of the Jedi Order, helped create TheEmpire, and ultimately caused the death of his wife and (so he believes) their unborn baby. He had lost the love of his life, his child, his friends, and everything else he risked his life for.

* BrokenAesop: The preservation of democracy against tyranny is one of the morals of the story, but the Senate is depicted as being one of the biggest problems the Republic has since they are all too eager to grant more and more executive powers to Palpatine. This escalates to the point where the Jedi Council (the heroes) resolve that they will have to take control of the government when they remove Palpatine from office. This sends a contradictory message that DemocracyIsBad because only a group of unelected warrior-clergy can possibly save the Republic from itself. The novelization explicitly points this out, with the Council discussing the morality of what they're doing, and saying the entire war was a no-win situation for the Jedi.

** When Luke asks Leia about her mother in Film/ReturnOfTheJedi, Leia says she died when she (Leia) was very young, and that all she had were "images and feelings". This suggests that Leia was about three or four at the time, old enough to remember such things. In this film, however, [[spoiler:Padmé dies almost immediately after giving birth to her children.]] Additionally, the way Obi-Wan phrased it in ''Jedi'' - "To protect you both from the Emperor, you were hidden from your father when you were born" - implies Anakin was unaware that he'd had children at all, until he found out about Luke, while in this film he's fully aware of the existence of his 'child' - [[spoiler: he just thinks it perished along with his wife.]]
