    1. Obi-wan needing the help of the Jedi Brats to figure out why he could not find Kamino in the archives. Come on, could it be more obvious?

    2. "Nooooooooo" in Return of the Jedi.

    There are more, but I want to hear yours.

    You mean Luke's scream before he goes all-out against Vader? Pretty sure he's screaming "Never!"

    Apparently in the Blu-Ray Vader screams it as he's throwing Palpatine down the tower shaft.

    The whole point of that youngling scene is for Obi-Wan to see the obvious by looking through the eyes of a child. Later on Windu couldn't see through the eyes of a child to realize Dooku was evil..it serves a strong purpose in the film.

    ROTJ ground battle. The ewoks do cool things like lassoing a speeder bike to make it crash into a tree. That's a good thing. Thrown rocks knock down Stormtroopers in armor? That's a bad thing. It should have been more of the former and less of the latter.

    Knocking them over (without breaking it) actually makes sense, if the rock's big and heavy enough. No matter how tough armour is, momentum is still momentum.

    The bad dialog. I don't care that nobody would say that crap in real life, Star Wars just isn't Star Wars without it.

    Ewoks... Terrible idea and really knocks how much I should enjoy ROTJ.

    Sidious VS Windu and Co- First the ease of how Jedi Masters get their asses handed to them and then the faces Sidious pulls crack me up.

    I'm surprised noone's stated the obvious yet.

    In ROTJ Luke not having his lightsaber when he goes to see Jabba. Never understood why he had to have it inside Artoo.

    What about in ROTS? The first time I heard it it sounded so cheesy I burst out laughing.

    Yes, I guess that's about it.

    Star Wars sounding cheesy? Impossible... /sarcasm

    The vague portrayal of Sifo-Dyas' contribution to the Clone Wars, Leia's appearance on Hoth and especially Luke's Jedi training between ESB and ROTJ.

    General Grievous with lightsabers. I wish they would cut that scene out!

    The whole Mace vs Palps scene, including:
    • Mace's conversation with Anakin - why not just let him come!? Or tell him to go do something to keep him occupied. Or wait for like 3 hours and take various others to confront him. Others have given valid reasons but it still gets to me.
    • The ridiculous deaths of Kit Fisto and Saesee Tiin
    • The horrible zoom-in sequence when Mace goes to kill Palpatine
    • Mace's scream at having his hand cut off
    • Anakin's 5 minute flip from ratting out the sith to pledging allegiance to them
    that is all :p

    Biggest would be Leia's post ANH character development being reduced to a love interest for a Harrison Ford character more so than a key figure of the rebellion and Darth Vader's daughter.

    In terms of props, I'd say the Death Star II changing apparent size relative to the Forest Moon, from scene to scene, springs to mind.
