See, my understanding of ROTJ was never qualified with that information. It was the first SW film I saw, and then I watched the other two with a, "OMG, there's more?!" kind of attitude. I was a kid, and I was gobsmacked. After viewing the entire trilogy in chronological order, I never got the feeling that ROTJ was "rushed." It was the perfect conclusion, where the heroes win in every possible way - not without losses, but they win. Plus, there's lots of Luke angst, which I adore (sorry, Luke!). His redemption of his father was, IMO, perfectly paced and plotted. What a beautiful note on which to end the saga. Speaking of Vader's redemption, your information about George's plans conflicts a bit with what I understood from his comments that SW was always Anakin's story. I knew he had another trilogy planned, but I don't really see how their existence as an idea meant that Jedi was rushed, since, if we're to believe Lucas, the entire arc of the first two trilogies centered on Anakin - his rise, his fall, and his redemption (though I consider the OT to be about Luke, but, whatever). If you look at it that way, then ROTJ ends exactly as it should have.
