I was watching the deleted scenes from AOTC and ROTS the other day. A few of them could have been acted, but it struck me how much they added to the films. It really humanised Padme seeing her interact with her family. When I then watch the OT, it makes you realise and hope that Luke/Leia will one day meet their grandparents. It also adds to the love story. Then the extra scenes with Obi Wan/Anakin at the start of ROTS really helps show their friendship. They are comrades fighting in arms. The political scenes with Pade/Bail/Mon Mothma were brilliant. I loved how we saw the birth of the rebellion and the growing tension politically between Padme and Anakin. Ultimately I think there was a missing film between AOTC and ROTS. There should have been a film detailing the clone wars, just like the Clone Wars cartoon. It would have allowed us to see more of Dooku, including the excellent Christopher Lee and shown Anakin/Obi Wan as brothers. George Lucas constantly talks about the compassion of the Jedi and heroes on both sides. It would have been nice to see heroic members of the Separitist fighting against the Jedi, instead of villains like Dooku or Grievous. A hotshot pilot to rival Anakin. A heroic general, fighting to break away from the corrupt Republic. It was the opportunity to have characters Anakin/Obi Wan liked but had to fight against. George also likes to mention how the Jedi are compassionate. Another film could show this more clearly. They could have the Jedi rescuing and sparing their enemies. TCW cartoon are very well done, but it would have been better to see this on screen. My biggest problem with the prequels is that they don't show enough of the things George wants to stress. We are forced to go to what was the EU. Another film would have given us much of this on screen.
