Heartwarming / Revenge of the Sith

  • In Revenge of the Sith, Padme telling Anakin she's pregnant. His grin absolutely makes it. The Nostalgia Critic even calls this one of the best moments in the prequel trilogy.
  • Anakin refusing to leave Obi Wan behind while on the Separatist Command Ship.
  • The moment when Anakin asks Obi-Wan's forgiveness for not being a good student. And Obi-Wan praises him. Also a Tear Jerker - it is their last moment as friends... (in living, though.)
  • The ending of novel is brilliant. Each of the chapters has Dark Side-ish introductions, but at the end...
    "The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins — but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: one lone candle is enough to hold it back.
    Love is more than a candle.
    Love can ignite the stars."
  • In another one that doubles as a Tear Jerker and a Call-Forward, Obi-Wan reflecting that he always expected that, when he died, Anakin would be with him.
  • Near the start of the film, Anakin verbally defends R2-D2 when he thinks Obi-Wan may be (unintentionally) insulting the droid, telling his former Master, "No loose-wire jokes," and declaring that R2-D2 is "Doing his best." It's really heartwarming, especially since we didn't get to see that much of this part of Anakin's personality until the Clone Wars cartoon came out.
  • A subtle one, but after Obi-Wan's duel with Anakin on Mustafar, he returns to Padme's ship, and Threepio is out there waiting for him. When Threepio suggest they should leave, Obi-Wan just gives him a weary pat on the shoulder. It's a small but very touching moment.
    • Doubles as a call-forward to 'A New Hope' in which Luke gives Threepio a similar pat when the latter is forced to wait outside the Cantina.
  • The opening of the novelization describes the people of the Republic reeling from the attack on Coruscant and trying to comfort their children. Only, the children don't need comforting. In fact, most of them are reassuring their parents that everything will be all right. For one simple reason; "Anakin and Obi-Wan will be there any minute." Even as the galaxy is slowly turning on the Jedi Order, kids still view its champions as superheroes that will make the bad guys regret getting out of bed in the morning.
