One thing that always strikes me when I watch The Phantom Menace, is that the Jedi Order to me is portrayed as nothing special. There was some good potential to show that this order does real good to the Galaxy, not just settle border disputes and trade arguments. We could of learned that the Jedi Order was concerned about the slaves on Tatooine, that they helped give food to the hungry on some forgotten planet or something like this. To be honest, I really don't care when they are all killed in Episode III, because this order spawns the most dull and two-dimensional characters ever. Take Mace Windu for example? What does he do in Episode I but talk all serious and stroke his chin? Hell, did he ever smile or look happy in Episode I? There is nothing I actually like about this character and I don't see how some people like him. Did he feel nothing for Qui-Gon when he learned he was dead? All I got from this episode was that the Jedi Order sit around and make themselves look important on the council. I wanted to see that they cared about their important roles, but it was all too serious and we learned nothing much about the order. Does anyone agree?
