"For one thing, the plot for Star Wars is gradually getting harder and harder for the average non-Star Wars fan to follow." Great point. This is the fifth installment of one solid story (Ya I know, technically 2nd, but really fifth), not Lethal Weapon IV- same thing again with new bad guys. This would be like a non LOTR fan having some memories of reading The Hobbit back in school and then picking up TTT. Older and wiser? Bah. I've got my share of both and keep running to the theater!
