Rewrite the scripts for Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith to not make Anakin sound so whiny and immature

Then, you might as well do the same thing with A New Hope and the Force Awakens so that neither Luke nor Kylo Ren sound whiny and immature either.

Basically, the film should have enhanced the original trilogy as much as possible and NEVER contradict them.

The story should have started with Anakin around 16 to 21 yeas old and Kenobi around 30 to 35 and had them be the main characters. It also would have been a really good idea to flesh out Uncle Owen, Boba Fett, Luke/Leia's mother and Alderaan. Anything that was resolved in the original trilogy that didn't have much development.

The big moments of the original trilogy should have been untouched. Yoda, for example, defintely should NEVER have been seen, only mentioned. His reveal in Ep 5 is so perfect and should have been preserved.

As for the story, it was right to focus on Anakin's turn to the dark side, the fall of the Jedi and the rise of the Empire. I would have started with The Clone Wars already in progress and Kenobi recruiting Anakin to join in the fight. As the films go on, Palpatine consalidates more and more power, which Anakin and Kenobi feel very differently about. Eventually Anakin betrays Kenobi and the Jedi order as Palpatine declares himself Emporer.

That's the basics, which aren't all that different from what we got...the real problem was execution. Had it all been well written and directed, it would have been good enough for me. For more specific ideas, here's a few:

1) As a Jedi Knight, Kenobi leads a squadron of clone troopers. One of these clone troopers eventually becomes his own man, deserting the war effort to become a bounty hunter: Boba Fett.

2) At the start of the story, Kenobi is married to a royal of Alderaan named Padme. However, as the films go on, Padme falls in love with Anakin and becomes pregnant with his child. This becomes a major reason for Anakin and Kenobi's falling out.

3) I would have used misdirection regarding Darth Vader. Basically Kenobi would have several apprentices besides Anakin and one would appear to kill Anakin and take the mantle of Darth Vader. It's not revealed what truly happened until Empire Strikes Back.

I have other ideas too. Maybe soon I'll start writing my own fanfic of the prequels.
