A major factor I've noticed that I felt was a part of what makes Star Wars what it is, and was lacking in the PT was the amount of space and cockpit scenes. The original trilogy... IV - The scenes aboard the Millenium Falcon where Obi-Wan is giving Luke his first lessons with a lightsaber and about the Force. - The escape from the Death Star, gun turrets on TIE fighters. - The long Battle of Yavin sequence. V - Most of Han and Leia's exposure in the movie was aboard the Millenium Falcon on their escape from the Empire. - Luke travelling to and from Dagobah while conversing with Artoo. - The escape from Bespin, TIE fighters blazing as Lando, Chewie and Leia pilot the Falcon. VI - The shuttle sequences delivering Vader and then the Emperor to the second Death Star. - The Rebel fleet sequence in preparation for the Battle of Endor - The very long Battle of Endor sequence. ...and the prequels I - The short blockade run from Naboo - A few flybys of the royal starship - The seemingly short assault on the control ship II - Obi-Wan on a approach of Kamino - The asteroid dogfight It seems that the prequels are devoid of some good quality time in space and in starships. That, for me, is one essential part that makes Star Wars what it is. Let the bashing commence.
