As a much more casual fan, here's the problem with the prequels. <br><br>Lucas started too far back. People want to know how things got to be the way they were in Ep IV, not how young Darth Vader behaved as a schoolboy. <br><br>Eps I, II and III should have all been about Annakin's turn to the dark side, and the subsequent rise of Vader. Lucas should've hired writers and directors (not art students with tinfoil hats to give each other CGI facials) to make decent movies. <br><br>I'll see III because it's Star Wars, but I have absolutely no expectations. <br><br>
Bail Organa (Jimmy Smits) was King of Alderan, but Senator/Representative of Alderan. Leia was his adopted daughter, on the toy packages she is listed as Princess Leia Organa.<br><br>This is also how Leia seems to have a little bit of a bankroll in IV-VI<br><br>She did know she was adopted, and know her real last name was Skywalker, that's why she was slightly surprised when Luke comes to save her and says, "I'm Luke Skywalker and I'm here to rescue you"<br><br>Her reply, "Who??"<br><br>Luke says, "Nevermind ... quick"<br><br>WWW.ADZOOX.COM & www.JACKWHISPERS.COM

That sounds like a real stretch to me. Despite his comments to the contrary, I don't think Lucas had all the details worked out to that extent on the first one. Otherwise, he'd have left out the creepy kissing-your-sister stuff.<br><br>As an aside, what's with the hybrid royalty/democracy angle with all these planets? They keep going on about democracy and I guess they're elected but it seems weird to be elected as "Queen" and "King." And the children (Leia) are addressed as "Princess" but who elected them? Your father gets elected King for a few years but you get to be a Princess forever. WTF?!?!?!<br><br>
Maybe it's like presidents... you're called Mr. President for life. Dunno, just guessing.<br><br>Lucas always said these movies were about Vader, not Luke. I watched an interview with Mark Hammill over the weekend in which he described the first script he read to be titled "The Adventures of Luke Skywalker" based on "The Journal of the Whills" or something like that. The story of George's intentions with this saga have changed umpteen times over the years. I think he's full of crap... he's making this crap up as he goes.<br><br>

Those that sit and try and figure out the master plan are playing a fool's game. Whatever does or does not happen is just because Lucas made it up. Out of thin air. Plot holes and all. <br><br>
