    I prefer to pick the Saga as a whole as my choice, as all six movies fit nicely together to tell the tale of Anakin's Skywalker's fall and redemption (though both trilogies follow different sets of protagonists). But if you hold a gun to my head and force me to choose, I guess I'd have to go with OT, simply because it was more consistent in quality overall, but really both trilogies have their merits and demerits, and I ultimately dislike having to compare one favorably over the other. All six movies, I feel, keep true to the spirit of Star Wars as a whole that Lucas conceived and brought to life. Oh, FWIW, RotS is my favorite movie in the saga, followed closely by the three OT entries, in case you're wondering.

    The trilogies debate will continue to rage on as long as Star Wars is still popular, and since it has been immortalized in our pop culture, I'd say it will last to the end of civilization as we know it.

    OT guys should be happy that there are so many Saga people - otherwise there would be a lot more votes for the PT :D

    I can't even really vote on this. as much as I love the OT , maybe it's because I have seen them so much (but then I've seen the prequels almost as much) I just really am more into the prequels in recent years.

    *wish
    And BTW, the PT & OT were tied in the votes several time here, the PT even was ahead at one point. Nothing is impossible.

    I grew up with the OT, heck I watched ANH so many times my parents kept having to buy the VHS over and over for me. I absolutely loved the OT as a kid and still love it as much, if not more, today. PT is also a great trilogy, and I watch it a lot. But the OT will always be my favorite.

    Considering battledroids have better aim, I'm not so sure. Clone troopers, on the other hand...

    Stormtroopers are the cooler looking grunts over the battledroids. SuperBattleDroids and Destroyer droids? could give stormtroopers a run for their money in the coolness factor.

    Clone Troopers are cooler than all of those. And they actually have good aim!

    The Jawa's in ANH would disagree with you. :p

    As the stormtroopers wiped them out (interrogating them to see who they sold the droids to) and then tried to stage the scene so it looked like the Sandpeople did it! That was like the OJ Simpson case of a Galaxy Far Far Away, "If the Gaffe Sticks don't fit, you must acquit!" [face_laugh]

    I saw all of the OT in their initial release at the cinema multiple times, was in the lower double digits as an early member of the original SW Fanclub, own(ed) every single Kenner toy, was a SW character every Halloween from the late 70's onward, my bedroom was nothing but Star Wars posters, those die cast metal figurines, SW sheets and comforters, every childhood birthday was SW themed... and I like the PT better. Nostalgia means nothing. I prefer the PT.

    I agree that nostalgia means nothing, as I prefer the OT. ;) But I'm still glad they made the PT and looking forward to the ST. :)

    Since stating your opinion did not at all require quoting me or trying to use my wording against me, I assume you are openly baiting me?

    The ROTS helmets and the troops that were with Ki-Adi-Mundi were pretty cool looking but the regular troops were just white suit Jango Fett rip-offs. Not cool. Yeah like the one person said earlier, ask the jawas.
