i think people don't like the prequels because they wanna see anakin go all vader. they just don't realize the prequels are about how good of a man anakin was and why it was so tragic when he turned into vader.. the prequels are about obi-wan..about him haveing a great and wise teacher(qui-gon)and OB1 trying his best to be qui-gon and failing in every way eventually causeing anakin to become vader. it's about padme' and her struggle to maintain order when everything else is going to hell.it's about forbidden love with a man who is not allowed to love. it's about jar jar,a creature who tries to be helpful but fails in every attempt. it's about yoda.who is slowly realizeing that the force has failed him..he has become so powerful he has overlooked evil sneaking into his world. and finally it is about palpatine.a man who craves power and manipulates every around him to get it. that is the why prequels are better..they have thier flaws..but are truly great.
