Hey Paul, I agree with you about the script for Ep2. I don't understand why Lucas doesn't hire Lawrence Kasden to co write the new scripts like he did with ESB and RotJ. I would think since Lucas spends so many millions of his own dollars to make these movies that he would want the best and most intelligent scripts possible. As for not liking CGI Yoda... I see your point. I also prefer the organic look of the puppet from the original trilogy but Yoda isn't going to look totally realistic either way so I would rather see a CG Yoda that can battle the Sith than a puppet that can only waddle around and stir food. I really enjoyed Ep2 but, at this point, I don't think it's possible for the prequels to be as fun and inspiring as the originals simply because none of the new characters are as likable as Luke, Leia and Han. It was much easier to relate to those three, in my opinion, because you could tell they were actually interacting with each other. In Episodes 1 & 2, most of the actors seem to just be reciting lines as opposed to actually listening to or caring about what the other actors are saying. So I've decided to just enjoy the ride and view the prequels as footnotes to the original trilogy. It's a lot more fun that way.
