Eggrert: With one or two exceptions, you're the only poster who shares my distaste for the Throne Room scenes. Bereft of the aesthetic beauty and primal force that powered the ESB duel, or the philosophical intrigue lending weight to the Palpatine/Anakin ROTS exchanges, there's nothing that resonates. What we're treated to are variations of a simplistic lure... "I can feel your anger." "No." "Your hatred swells." "No." "It is your destiny." "No." "C'mon, get mad." "No." The only way Lucas could have drawn genuine suspense out of this is if his hero was flawed, but ROTJ Luke is the veritable White Knight, intent on redeeming his father. Which is fine, thematically, but not so good for drama.
