And that the rabid ones are fanboys in this fandom.
Anyway, I think I would have gotten more squeeage out of the movie if they hadn't cut the Mon Mothma scenes out, because I've now discovered the root of why I liked Episode II better. Got nothing to do with dialogue or acting, or the flow of the over-all plot or any such silly little things. It was all about the Boba Fett pwnage. There was 'ooh' and 'whoa' in discovering that all the storm troopers = Boba Fett, and that he was essentially a super storm trooper, and there wasn't any such 'ooh' and 'whoa' to be found in Episode III.
My answer to the age-old question of favourite character has been Boba Fett since I was ten or something, and the fact that Anakin's nightmares looked a hell of a lot like wet dreams to the outside observer is beside the point.
Not that Episode III didn't have its good points, mind. Obi-Wan hugging Anakin in the elevator shaft with the Emperor hanging from his leg was brilliant.
