i honestly think they will handle padme's death like this:
I think that jims shift towards attempting roleplaying was intended so that when the final confrontation came he(jim) would side with obi-wan againts anakin. Anakin chokes padme because of this. OR
Obi-wan will come and say "hey, strike down anakin and you could rule the galaxy by my side."
Aniken: You brought Obi Wan with you? You have betrayed me I have no choice but to kill you!!!!
