lol, i knew someone was going to say "Empire strike back", hey lets all just hope that Lucas astounds us all, and This third one distroys all of the other ones. Should the content of this one should be loved by all.
Everyone hates Jar Jar cos he's annoying, and he's the numero uno example of how the Star Wars prequel trilogy is a bit awkward and different to the original trilogy. Did people want exactly the same thing twenty years later?
I hated Jar Jar for years, but now I'm ambivalent. At least he didn't have big roles in II and III.
There's actually a really good short comics story in an issue of Star Wars Tales which shows why Jar Jar was exiled from his people before Episode I. It shows that even the lamest character can be made sympathetic and interesting with treatment by a writer who isn't as detached from reality as George Lucas.
return of th e jedi is still the best of all six movies. Luke confronts his father and the emperor, overcomes the dark side, and completes his jedi training. Not to mention the sweet scene of Lando piloting the millenium falcon out of an exploding death star. Luke is my favorite jedi by far so I really enjoyed watching him become the new master and last living jedi. I think the reason everyone likes empire better is because it is a darker movie with no ewoks running around.
Also in my opinion....episode III was a let down, but not as much as I and II were. At least III is watchable were as that kid in episode I makes me want to violently assault George Lucas for not yelling,"Cut! we need a better actor!" And the mind numbing politics and whiney annakin in epidode II piss me off more. At least there is some more action in III to mask that the writing and acting kinda sucked.
