To answer your question, Angry Ewok, I simply did not buy into it completely. I love it, it is SW and has light sabers and Force abilities and such, but to me it is not the same as the other 4. I love everything about the other 4... including such diverse elements as: the whiney young Luke hoping to get some power converters, the vast array of aleins at Mos Eisley, the dastardly villians, the great droids, the impressive Imperial machinery (AT-ATs etc), the Millennium Falcon!, the space battles, the light saber battles, Yoda, and yes, even the Ewoks in some ways. But Ep1... OK there was light sabers, and the things I mentioned above, but there was also Jake Lloyd, and lets not even speak of "JJB". I am really looking forward to EpIII though...
Well I look back and see that I babbled on a bit there, but the point is that while I love EpI, it does not measure up to the others in my book. Sometimes I wonder if I just have not developed the peoper appreciation, and that after I allow my feelings on the suject to age a little I might like it better. But then I think.. Nah!
OK, well more than anyone wanted to know, but there you have it anyway.
