Yeah, but aside from the lousy Sam Jackson stand in, the Jedi continuity is all the fault of fans who have no imagination. The way I remember it was that fans noticed that the exact same actors/actresses had not played the same character (defined by costume) and started whining. For instance, Adi Gallia (sp?) was in TPM, then another actress whole looked almost the same played her in AOTC. But since it wasn't the same actress, people started complaining.
It this sort of tight ass rigidity that I dislike in many fans. They would rather have continuity, as opposed to, say an actress who is better with a lightsaber than the previous one who played they same roll.
