From watching the OT and then the PT, i find the serious nature in the OT appealing. The forced comedy gags in the PT were just awful and made me cringe. Floppy ears Jar Jar idiot... (please don't start a PT debate). The comedy relief in the OT was so subtle and clever that it was adsorbed by the movies. Episode IIV no doubt will be a serious plot and have no need for comedy relief.
