1999, 2002, and 2005 were my least favorite years of collecting since the restart in 1995, due to the HEAVY focus on the prequel film of that year. It took years to get away from that formula, then we get a Clone Wars line out of new media, which again takes away from the traditional OT releases. Finally, Hasbro dumps the themed wave idea this year, after having some composed of nothing but Prequel characters... then we're back to the goddamn prequel themed waves again due to the 3D release. Actually, it's more like a midnight madness than a themed wave because of the sheer quantity and focus. Maybe in 3 years when I'm less interested in collecting, I'll see a heavy focus on ANH 3D.
