In my introduction Star Wars: the Animated Series… Wait, what? I made it no secret that I love Darth Vader. I kind of feel as though George Lucas works in a very limited spectrum when it comes to Star Wars, or anything, for that matter; he’s either amazing or he fails beyond belief. I didn’t feel this way about his antagonists until Revenge of the Sith. If there is one aspect in his work that he excels at, it would be villains.
I don’t think I’ll be breaking anyone’s heart when I say that I firmly believe George Lucas is a whore for money. And why shouldn’t he be? After all, he’s remarkably successful, and it’s only natural that he would want to continue being successful. But it doesn’t change the fact that Star Wars has gotten progressively worse since the release of Episode I.
