'''You'd Expect:''' Qui-Gon to adapt to this situation and just look elsewhere for a generator. Or write the royal cruiser off as a loss, and find some ''other'' solution to get the Queen to Coruscant, such as buying a new ship outright or hiring someone to fly them to Coruscant in ''their'' ship, much as Obi-Wan and Luke did with Han Solo and Chewbacca in '' ANewHope. '' \\ '''Instead:''' He decides to embark on an incredibly convoluted scheme of betting on a podrace, the success of which depends on a nine year old boy ''who's never won or even finished a race'' coming in first. You can literally see poor Padmé's horror and disbelief mount with each fresh twist Qui-Gon throws into his plan.

Then, after getting to know Anakin, he decides to embark on an incredibly convoluted scheme of betting on a podrace, the success of which depends on a nine year old boy ''who's never won or even finished a race'' coming in first. You can literally see poor Padmé's horror and disbelief mount with each fresh twist Qui-Gon throws into his plan.

** When they arrive on Tatooine, they need to replace the hyper-drive generator of the royal cruiser. Qui-Gon attempts to buy one off Watto, but he won't accept Republic credits, and he claims that no other dealers stock the part or will take Republic credits either.\\ '''You'd Expect:''' Qui-Gon to adapt to this situation and just look elsewhere for a generator.

'''You'd Expect''': Amidala to have brought some proof of the invasion, given the only reason the Trade Federation is getting away with this nonsense is how effectively they're blacking out communications. If she had recorded her harrowing escape from the planet, that alone would have been proof enough. If nothing else she could have brought in Qui-Gonn and Obi-Wan as witnesses to confirm her story - and, incidentally, bring their own charge against Nute Gunray for trying to ''kill'' two ambassadors sent by the Chancellor himself.\\

'''And You'd Expect:''' The Jedi Council would send a Jedi with plenty of experience, maybe two, to protect her, since Obi-Wan is going to be busy investigating the mysterious Bounty Hunter. Why not even send Yoda or Windu, if Padmé is worth it ? It's not like they have a war to fight.\\ '''Instead:''' They send Anakin, alone and inexperienced, as if there was no other Jedi available around. To make it even worse, Obi-Wan is well aware that his Padawan is infatuated with the person he will have to protect, and that he's been having nightmares about his mother. And yet he doesn't mention it to Yoda and Windu, and just tells them Anakin is too "arrogant". The reactions of Yoda ["many Jedi are arrogant, I don't care"] and Windu ["Anakin is supposed to be the Chosen One, I don't care"] are priceless, especially if you remember how they treated Qui-Gon and Anakin in the Phantom Menace.

** Quin-Gon had tried to free Shmi Skywalker along with her son, but Watto wouldn't agree to it, and Qui-Gon didn't have the time and resources to negotiate further.\\ '''You'd Expect:''' That once all the dust had settled and the Trade Federation got kicked off Naboo, Anakin would pipe up about his mother, to either Obi-Wan or Padmé, and they would take steps to buy her freedom. Even if Jedi are supposed to sever ties to their families, Obi-Wan would surely see the sense in making sure Anakin doesn't have to worry about his mother when he's embarking on his new life, and Padmé has already grown close to Anakin, presumably feels gratitude towards Shmi for helping her, and could certainly afford to pay any price Watto might ask.\\ '''Instead:''' They just leave Shmi on Tattooine, presumably without checking up on her even ''once,'' and without any explanation given for why they do so. As a result, she eventually gets captured and killed, leading Anakin to brush the Dark Side and become more ambitious and grimly determined to prevent the deaths of those he loves, which leads to disastrous consequences in the third film.

** After Qui-Gonn and Obi-Wan rescue the Queen and her party, they need to escape Naboo and get to Coruscant. The trouble is, the Trade Federation blockade is in their direct path. ''You'd Expect:''' That the pilot would take advantage of space being really, really big to go ''around'' the blockade, rather than through it. If nothing else they could leave from the other side of the planet, which the Trade Federation doesn't seem to have blockaded, and go from there.
