Something I don't understand...

In "Episode 1: The Phantom Menace," if my memory serves me (because I certainly didn't sit through it more than once), the queen's name was Amidala, and her sidekick/look-alike was named Padme.

So now, why is the queen's name in "Episode 2: Electric Boogaloo" Padme Amidala?

With all the money he has, you'd think George Lucas could afford a better grade of dope...

More Star Wars silliness

metaphorge explains that "on Naboo, Queen is an elected position."

This raises two questions:

1). Why would you use the term "queen" to refer to an elected leader?

2). Why the fuck would you elect a fourteen-year-old as leader of your planet?
