Crack, Tarkin doesn't know about Obi Wan OR Yoda. Luke jumping caught Vader by surprise. Using 'Force grab' obviously takes concentration. It's funny how the so called "naysayers" know more about the films than some of the gushers. Perhaps that is why we were so disappointed with AOTC, and you weren't. The fact that Anakin's mother was left on Tatooine as a FREAKIN' SLAVE is a MAJOR plothole. There is no getting around that - an idiot could tell you that having a mother who is a freakin' slave on a desert planet with a chip in her head that could blow up at any time would be the WORST thing to do when you are trying to make someone FORGET about their attachments. As for the original post, if you bothered to take the time to read negative reviews instead of preforming your own opinion, you would see that most of us who are complaining understand the plot quite well. Most of us are not enamored enough with video game sequences to excuse the shoddy cutting (that I explained in detail), lackluster characterization, or lack of attention to develop the freakin' villain (Lucas cut out pivotal Dooku development scenes in favor of a Mega Man 3 sequence!?). If you notice, most of the peopel who love it are liking the broad story or seeing Yoda swinging a lightsaber around. Those disappointed are complaining about the little touches that made the OT so great.
