One of the factors that makes the OT so good, IMHO, is the character of Han Solo. In Han, we have a good guy with a rogue-ish edge. While Luke, Leia and Obi-Wan we're all pretty much squeaky-clean, idealistic heroes, Han possessed characteristics like cockiness and arrogance and greed. He was't perfect. Most of the characters in the trilogy were either all good or all bad. Han is one of only a few to live in that middle ground. This made him extremely cool. His character added both humor and humanity to the story. The PT lacks such a character. What we have mainly are one-dimensional idealistic heroes and villains. You might make a case for Anakin, who certainly embodies elements of good and evil. But Anakin lacks the rogue-ishness, the coolness of Han. Besides, once Anakin goes bad, he will be pure "bad guy," unlike Han, who despite his faults, was always one of the "good guys." I once hoped a young Obi-Wan would fill this role in the PT ? a brash young Jedi, a little cocky, a little out of control. But he has turned out pretty much squeaky clean. IMHO, the Star Wars Saga would be better with the inclusion of more Rogue Good Guys ? imperfect heroes ? an absense most notable in the PT.
