    When Anakin is forced onto the service ramp (as it is so gracefully "predicted" by the announcer), we see a close view of him rising high into the air and then charging down to the race track. I am really disappointed that we didn't get to see a bird's eye view of Tatooine here. As Anakin rises, the horizon comes into view, but ILM must have been lazy because they missed a great opportunity to show us some great Tatooine landscapes. View it again on your DVD, we see two big rocks and that's it....the horizon goes out of view almost immediately. weak IMO.

    Any thoughts here?

    I don't know how you can say it's because they were lazy. They did create the entire race course from scratch (well.. with some real world textures..) and made it look so photo realistic I didn't even realize it was all CG until I saw it in a Making Of video. If Lucas wanted that kind of shot they would have done it for him. But you're right, that could've been cool to see.
