That's OK, RogueSith. This is the standard argument for anybody who simply likes the PT. I've tried time and again to defend my semi-basher perspective within a measurable paradigm - that of the world of filmmaking. I try to illustrate by pointing out what I see as editorial sloppiness or bad pacing - as examples. I am, in turn, told that because Lucas wanted that way, it must be right. Forget the idea that there are actual rules of filmmaking, from pre-production to post-production, that are more or less adhered to in most other Hollywood films. Lucas is somehow exhonerated from these rules because he's Lucas. Oh, my head!!!!
