It's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond a stretch I realise, but the best I can muster around the fact that she had to die.
I don't see why it could just have been Anakin choking her into a coma, the babies being delivered and then her dying just after the birth without regaining consciousness but GL seemed to think different.
That's exactly how it should have worked IMO. Vader should have killed her, far more powerful. I did like the duality of her death being paired with Anakin's death and rebirth as the helmeted Vader. Had they just not added that whole thing about losing the will to live and simply let her succumb to an injury as a result of the choke it would have worked much ,much better.
