    My podcast is doing a bracket to determine the Worst Star Wars Thing. We are down to The Holiday Special, Christmas in the Stars, Hayden Christiansen, George Lucas, Naboo, Jar Jar Binks, Midichloreans, and Podracing. What do you guys think?

    George Lucas
    -----------------

    The worst thing about about Star Wars was the man who created it?

    holy twisted logic Batman!

    anyway, Mara Jade or Ahsoka Tano :p

    The very second GL is picked as the worst thing in Star Wars, a huge vortex is created and the whole saga gets swallowed by it forever ;)

    I think the worst bits of Star Wars are the bits which make you turn away from the screen in distaste. For me, that would be the love scenes in AOTC and Jedi Rocks in ROTJ.

    What's the problem with Mara Jade? :eek: I think she's the second best EU character (the best being Grand Admiral Thrawn).

    RoTJ. Boba Fett. Sarlacc Pit. Don't think I need to say more.. :(

    (Second worst would be AOTC. Geonosis Arena. Jango Fett. Mace Windu.)

    But if I'm limited to the list in the first post JarJar wins hands down.

    I wasn't going to post in this thread as I thought the OP was probably just a trolling attempt (since it was a one-time, drive-by post from that username), but...since it was just revived...I will add that if the OP was serious, it always makes me sad to see GL himself included in something like this.:(

    My list of "worst things" is pretty short, but I guess I'll go with (in no particular order) the visual quality of the effects in the droid factory sequence (esp the way Threepio looks), the inclusion of poop and fart jokes in TPM, and Obi-Wan's hair in AOTC:p .

    bwhahaha, Yak Face[face_laugh] ...and how did you know that Bono is yet another one of my big crushes?!;)

    Obi's wet Kamino hair is actually the only time I like it in that film (when it's good, it's really good...:p)

    Also, I forgot to add one more component to my list of worst things--gotta agree with you and add in Anakin and Padme's romance (though, for me, really only in AOTC ...I actually sort of like most of their scenes in ROTS).

    Mara Jade and Ahsoka Tano

    The Chosen One prophecy

    Lack of consistency among films and TV. I let the books slide because Lucas did not have a direct hand in those, but the films and TCW not meshing well with each other? LOL.

    Ewan, Bono ... It's the Celts isn't it? The blue-eyed Celts...

    Yeah, AOTC is certainly the high point / low point of the romance horror. The best scene those two ever did together IMHO was the one in ROTS when they weren't together and they didn't speak. Don't know what that says...

    Dave Filoni for TCW, his clones and Ahsoka. I didn't know how to hate anything in Star Wars until they came along.

    I'd say the worst thing associated with Star Wars is 'fan' judgementlism.
