... there wasn't enough live action stuff. I mean, you listen to the commentary on AOTC, and the guys are slapping themselves on the back and almost wetting themselves that not one single Clone Trooper was real. They were *all* CG. That, to me, is so lame. The reason that movies like Lord of the Rings and, ironically, the earlier Star Wars movies, worked so well, is because there were lots of *real* people in *real* situations, augmented by CG other other special effects -- not reliant on them. There's such a profound difference in that. That's not to say that CG doesn't have a place - it surely does. But I think that battle on Geonosis should have been taken out into a real desert, with real Clone troopers running around, augmented with CG ships and CG Clone Troopers also on screen. This would have given the movie that *real* feel that the earlier ones have. When you look at the Jawa's Sandcrawler, for example, you can see that it's real. Even with the SE adding CG stuff, you still have this overwhelming sense that you are in a real place. Another good example is when we see Obi-Wan's home in the SE. The house is CG... but we still feel like we're in a real environment, that can be touched. Too much blue screen has ruined the prequels. As much as I like them, and think they're fun... I still think they're flawed for this very reason.
