In only watched AOTC the film. No comics, novels or other story sources. From watching the film I know NOTHING about the Seperatists. Nothing about their history, reasons, motivations or moral stance. Absolutely NOTHING is explained about them. So why on Earth should I care about a battle between Seperatists and Clones even if it has nice effects? It's like watching a football game between Tunisia and Bulgaria - you might appreciate a nice goal scored in such a game but ultimately you don't care who wins. Lucas throws eye candy at you but apart from saying "nice effects" you just don't care. How would you since you know NOTHING about either side of the battle. You see a giant mechanical spider. Great. What side is that spider on? No idea. Are we supposed to guess this? And then look at Helm's Deep. It's quite simply in a different league. Or, as Sam Jackson put it in Pulp Fiction, "it's not even the same f-----g sport!!!". At HD you get characters, people, dialogue, emotions, strategies. My god, how anybody can seriously say that the Playstation advert in AOTC is better is beyond me. It seriously is.
