Just thought though that Birth in the title makes a ton of sense...

Birth of the Empire
Birth of Darth Vader
Birth of the Twins

I just don't the word 'birth' inthe title, don't know why, I like 'dawn' better; maybe 'The Empires' Dawn', 'Dawn of the Empire', 'The Hand of Fear', 'Shadows of the Darkside'...
I could go on and on...; makes no difference - only GL knows for sure ;)

If its going to be something about the beginning of the Empire, I'd prefer Rise Of The Empire.

The Phantom Menace

Attack Of The Clones  (My second favorite title in the saga)

Rise Of The Empire

A New Hope

The Empire Strikes Back  (My favorite title in the saga)

Return Of The Jedi

The only problem is two movies in a row with "of the" in the title. Of course, if you rephrase it as The Empire Rises, you'd have two titles very close to each other that start with "The Empire".

Honestly I think Revenge Of The Sith would be the best choice. Sure, you've got "of the" in the title, but it works perfectly. You have Darth Maul's dialogue in the first movie of the saga about how the Sith will have their revenge, and then you have the title of the sixth movie (ROTJ) which mirrors it very well. Its also a bit of a tease of the Revenge of the Jedi Title.

I don't like any title that includes the phrase "of the;" it's okay in two of the six, I guess, but half of them?!

Not too creative.

The best title so far has been "The Phantom Menace."  Unfortunately, it accompanied the crappiest movie, but still, a cool title.  Kind of eery, surmises the plot...just cool.  The Empire Strikes Back is pretty sweet, too--blunt and right to the point.

My vote for an Episode III title would be Fallen Order, referring both to the Jedi order and the order of things under the Republic government.

Mmmm...I dunno, though, that's probably just as lame as any other suggestion.

But at least it doesn't have "of the" in it. :D

             I still maintain Episode 3 should be called 'Sith Happens'  ;D

Check out the end

We caught George Lucas wandering around the grounds with his daughter, Katie. The director said the title of Star Wars: Episode III won't officially be announced until November, when the first trailer hits theaters.

But he conceded that fans on Web sites already have guessed correctly. So we threw a couple of rumored titles at him: Rise of the Empire? "No, that's not it," Lucas said. How about Revenge of the Sith?

With that, Lucas smiled knowingly, backed away and teased, "That's a possibility. Lots of titles out there ..."

I noticed that article too Scott, I could see that being the title possibly....especially since Lucas likes to "go back" and use things from the past, and "Revenge" was nearly used for ROTJ, but changed because a Jedi wouldn't be "revenging"  :).  Probably couldn't say the same for those wily Sith lords though.

On a side note....it seems like I really get down on the prequels every once in awhile...I still enjoy them, but am just more of an OT person at heart.  That said, it seems once the hype starts for Episode III, and the more I see on hyperspace or various sites, the more excited I start getting for the movies again.  I guess, at the end of the day, its still Star Wars....even if its often not as good as the "good ole days". :)

While "Revenge of the Sith" has been guessed so many times that it's almost tired, I'm still a big supporter of that title. It's simple, has a bit of OT feel, and flows nicely with "A New Hope". Plus with all that "Revenge" usage history it would be a nice nod to those good ole days, like you said.

I'm really doubting that the title can be held secret until November, though.
