Now, plenty of people seem to like Star Wars for the lighsaber battles, the technology, the rich visual feel, the badass Sith, etc. Clearly it has that element in it. And, others (like me) like the characterization, foreshadowing, the fact that while it might seem so on the surface, the good is not all good and the bad is not all bad-- that kind of thing. However, these aspects don't seem to be as well known, and it can be argued that other books and movies far surpass it in this respect. So, do you watch SW just for the style, or much prefer the substance? Do you enjoy the style and substance equally? Do you think there should have been more lightsaber battles? So you think the action goes on too long and it should have been replaced by characterization? Why? My stance is that I think there is depth to SW unrecognized by the general public (but that it could stand to be strengthened), and the strained bonds between Obi-Wan, Anakin and Luke and Anakin's subsequent revivification through Luke's uncompromising love is one of the most moving things I ever will see.
