A lot of people think the reason why so many were unhappy with TPM was because Lucas was surrounded by people too afraid to tell him his ideas were lame. For instance, had more of his colleagues spoken up about Jar Jar, the character would have been toned down. My question is, would you have told Lucas your thoughts if you disagreed with him? Some say, in his defense, that they DID speak up or that they simply trusted that Lucas would be right (and was). But if you were lucky enough to be working on the first SW film in 20 years, would you risk that by suggesting that Lucas was making big mistakes? I wouldn't give him the chance to find someone else who wouldn't disagree. So, regardless of whether the film is bad or gold, isn't it logical to assume that Lucas is surrounded by yes men? Would you seriously voice negative opinions while working on a SW flick?
