Also, because of how much he valued power and wanted to become even more highly-ranked, he started following Palpatine’s orders even when they were very extreme and harmful towards the Jedi. Palpatine led Anakin to want to end the Jedi, so he could be the most powerful and so he could save Padme. All of this occured because of one poor choice that he made because he was impatient.
