I know that there are a lot of people out there who wanted Maul to return. I also know that there were others that didn't enjoy the contributions that characters like Dooku and Grievous brought to the films. I, however, enjoyed all three villains and their roles in the saga. Maul was essentially a brute, an assassin used to further the initial goals of Palpatine, and put the fear back into the complacent Jedi Order that the Sith had returned. Count Dooku, however, was a charming aristocrat and politcal manipulator, exactly the kind of man that Palpatine needed to create conflict. On the outside he is an idealist against the ideals of the Republic. On the inside, he is a cold, manipulative Sith Lord plotting against the Republic and his own master. And Grievous? How awesome is Grievous? A former warrior turned into a fighting machine, most likely serving the purpose of being anti-Jedi propoganda and military leader. He also serves to be a Vader prototype. I don't care what anyone says, Grievous is quite the badass. He is one of my favorite things about the Prequel movies. Lets show our love for these guys, eh?
