FYI: filmmaking is a creative process that is collaborative in nature.
When Lucas made Episode IV, he had inputs from his actors regarding
the dialog Lucas wrote that sounded good on paper but undeliverable
on film. This time around, it's Lucas the dictator. You either do
what he says or you walk with your pink slip. Nothing personal against
Lucas, but I think one factor Episode I did not live up to expectations
could have to do with the fact that he was King Lucas on the set and
the actors and crews were too intimidated to butt heads with him for
the film's benefit.

Actually he's an outer space Goofy. People who diss him because they
can't get past the accent and weird syntax/word choice simply don't
get it.

You refer to the... balance of the Force? ;)
