: What if a Senator that the Jedi suspect (and who Palpatine/Sidious/Dooku frame) is Amidala? ( Do you think she suspects an attack?) Ok, now think about this:
: Amidala is framed, Jedi hunt her, Anakin protects her, then in a totally awesome confrontation, the Jedi KILL Amidala right in front of Anakin. Ooooooh. This will cause two things:
: One: The Jedi are doomed. The galaxy sees their arrogance and paranoia as dillusional and a general hazard to the populace. The galaxy is ripe for a Purge.
: Two: Anakin gains not a simple dislike of the Jedi, but a deep and unwavering HATRED of them. In his fury, he turns against the Jedi, including Obi-wan.
It is not impossible that this could happen in Episode 3, but it creates the problem with the extermination of the Jedi.... the Jedi were closely supported by the Old Republic government, and this would effectively mean that the Old Republic's government is more likely to support the Jedi than turn against them.
