"I usually judge quality on whether or not the story involves complex characters that I feel emotionally involved with and whether or not there are intriguing, complex, original plot lines. "
I find this comment really odd. To me, the whole point of Star Wars, is it not complex. It's simple. Bad guys, good guys, blow up the Death Star, y'know, get some kicks while your at it. The whole reason SW became a phenomenon in 1977 was that is was simple characters and stories set against a visual style was was more complex than anything ever put on screen.
