To think it all started in the dessert with Tusken Raiders.  

When did Anakin have dessert with Tusken Raiders?  Was it apple pie?  Ice cream sundaes?  Italian pastries?

Couldn't care less...

All of the Jedi never connected with me, apart from Obi-Wan.

Showing Vader being evil by letting him kill defenseless kids, okay.

Showing Vader being a powerfull Sith by letting him kill defenseles kids, bad.

It makes Vader a wimp, only brave enough to go after little ones, and leaving the full Jedi Masters to be exterminated by others.

THAT IS NOT DARTH VADER! >:(

You see, you're still not getting the Prequels.  The whole point of them was to change our perception of the originals.  Anyway, Vader always went after unarmed people (Antilles) and wimps (Motti).  Most "evil" people are cowards at heart.

Also, you can see him killing armed adult jedi in the hologram recording.

In truth, the only thing that I felt was missing from ROTS was a small scene (30 seconds) with Anikin in the temple killing a few adult Jedi.  I would have love to see him wiping them out with no problem, showing us how strong the dark side has made him.

  I think that the hologram didn't show enough.

You're almost right. It's not about what we actually see. It's about what we can imagine. In the hologram scene I think we needed a few beats of watching Obi-wan's reaction to the slaughter. That would have been very powerful on many levels.

That's the only part of the movie that didn't work for me.  There's no horrific realization on Obi Wan's part, just understated disappointment it felt like, and for some reason they blaze through it.

yes, yes i do.

Generally no one else is very pleased by it, especially when you aren't adding anything of value to the conversation.

Just a tip.
