I think that anyone who expected the Prequels to be as good as the originals is diminishing how awesome the originals are and how difficult it is to make something that awesome.
I'm not going to hate on Lucas. I enjoy the prequels because they are Star Wars and they still brought more story to light, but I think some of there flaws weren't just because it's difficult to have the magic of the originals. A lot of it was because George has too many yes man and a gigantic ego.
There are certain parts of the prequels where I literally cringe because the dialouge is so bad. And I don't think all the people in on making this movie missed it. I think George got an idea in his head and that is what he was going to do no matter what. So if people want to criticize him for that they can. He isn't immune just because he made the originals so good.
All in all, of course, we all need to be very thankful to George for bringing so much enjoyment into our lives, Ep 1-6 and everything else that goes along with it. The fact we are so critical about it shows how much we love it.
