There isn't really any one particular plotline, character or scene that irritates me above all others, so I'll just list everything: Plotline: The ewoks defeating the Stormtroopers. "It's a nightmare!" This is another plotline that perhaps works ok with an audience seeing it for the first time, but isn't really funny after that. Maybe if there wasn't so much emphasis on 3P0's mix-up, it might be ok. Character: The podracer announcer. He'd be great for a "Droids" cartoon or something, but not for a SW movie. Scene: The "Let's try spinning! That's a good trick!" scene. Anakin should've just shut up like he did when he was podracing. "The crowds are going nuts! Oooh Ahhh! Oooh Ahhh!" I didn't have a problem with this at first, but it's more of a crowd pleaser to get a first time audience excited at a theater, and not really something I can enjoy watching by myself. "R2-D2, your highness." This scene where we get introduced to R2-D2 is winking at me too much. It's another one of those scenes that works ok for an audience seeing it for the first time, but not for home enjoyment. It's got too much of the "Hey, this is a character from the OT that you've come to know and love for so long, and he's back!" thing going on. "Exqueeeeeze me." In fact, most of the Jar Jar scenes in TPM. The key word is "most." I did like some of his scenes, but most were just Lucas saying, "Hey, look what ILM can do with a digital creature!" and didn't add to the plot at all. They got him right in Ep. II though. Eeopie fart. Has no business being in a SW movie. "I'm sorry master, but I couldn't find a speeder that I really liked..." This line was fine, but then it went on too long: "...with an open cockpit, and the right speed capabilities." The line wasn't delivered well, and it wasn't needed to make the joke funny. It was funny before, but the second half of the line just kills it. "We've got to get to that hanger!" How in the heck does Padme know of a specific hanger that Anakin and Obi-Wan were at? It makes sense that she would suspect that Dooku was heading for "a" hanger. But she specifies with the word "that," which makes this scene appear to be a bad edit. Leia kissing Luke. Luke smiling afterwards. That was just a little much. I know we didn't find out she was his sister until later on, but still. That scene isn't the same anymore. The "he's my brother" scene. There's just something about this scene that's cheesy with Han's reaction, the kiss, and the smiles afterwards. The repetativeness of Vader's dialogue. "[fill in the blank] your destiny." "Obi-Wan has taught you well." "[fill in the blank] complete." "You half-witting, scruffing-looking, nerf-herder!" "Who's scruffing-lookin'?!" etc., etc. This is one of those scenes that works now, but I guarantee if these lines were said in the prequels, people would hate 'em. I guess when it comes down to it, the prequels have more flaws that are irritating that the OT. Some of it has to do with the amount of time that has passed for the flaws in the OT to grow on me and how little of time has passed for the flaws in the prequels to not grow on me. And others are because they're just simply badly written plotlines, characters, or scenes. But for me, there are still many more good things about the saga than bad things, so I don't have much of a problem ignoring the bad because most everything is pretty cool.
