Remember that not all conflict is resolved through force of arms. Diplomacy, politics, debate, reason, the skills of statecraft and leadership - these are all worthy methods to achieving goals in their own right.

Padmé: Anakin! Here you are! Okay, let me get into character...
Padmé: I am soooo—
Anakin: I know. I love you too.
Padmé: —soooo angry at you!
Anakin: Uh... You are?
Padmé: You started this huge war between the good guys and the rest of the Galaxy, and I didn't even get to fight in it!
Anakin: But you have been fighting. In the Senate. I'm so proud of you.
Padmé: Really? I thought you'd be annoyed because I haven't achieved anything with the Rebellion.
Anakin: I know you're trying your best.
Padmé: By the way, Obi-Wan is hunting you down and may or may not be hidden on board. I'm pretty sure I failed my Spot check.
