Remember when Darth Vader killed all of those Younglings?

Unfortunately, couldn't find the entire scene, but this is close enough.

I saw the midnight release of Revenge of the Sith back in 2005 and when the movie got to this scene, it floored the entire audience. I remember a woman behind me whisper to her friend "He's not going to kill them, is he?". When Vader turned his lightsaber on and the door closed behind him, ending the scene, you could hear audible gasps from almost the entire audience. It was a small, but important scene because it showed the continuing fall of Anakin Skywalker and the rise of Darth Vader. Killing Mace Windu and the other Jedi was one thing, but killing children? That was a whole new depth of evil.

Well, Palpatine did order him to kill all of the Jedi at the Temple...
