the step of Anakin Skywalker to the Dark Side he had a turning point from which he never returns. The call Siege of the Jedi Temple in which it claimed the lives of children on Coruscantone of the saddest moments in Star Wars history and in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
Many Lucasfilm fans have wondered if this scene was necessary, if Anakin was forced to kill the little trainees of the Jedi Order. At first glance, these little ones did not pose a threat to the Galactic Empire at that time.
Perhaps Palpatine was able to take those children captive and turn them to the Dark Side of the Force. Perhaps they were simply not interested in him and Anakin was simply following Darth Sidious’s orders.
As he recalls a report published on the website of His house, Palpatine assures in Episode III that all Jedis are enemies of the Republic. Based on these words, all members of the Order, including the youngest, they were to be annihilated, especially if they were under jedi training.
Anakin’s reason was Padmé’s life.
“Do not hesitate. Have no compassion. Only then will you be powerful enough with the Dark Side to save Padmé.”, Palpatine said to Anakin, seduced by the darkness and the delusion that, carrying out the orders of the Lord of the Sith, he could save the life of his beloved, even if it was necessary to kill the children of the Jedi Temple.
In the Siege, part of the well-known Order 66, one of the little ones approaches Anakin for help: “Master Skywalker, there are too many. What are we going to do now?”.
After those words the fallen Jedi unsheathed his lightsaber. A massacre against some innocent children and the persecution against the Believer Order of the Light Side that was not worth it because, in the end, Padmé died anyway.
