It would be OK with me there was a way to digitally replace Hayden Christiansen with a better actor.
No kidding!

not really a flaw, but more of an observation

with all the adjustments Lucas has made with the Star Wars franchise frankly I'm a little surprised he didn't insert the ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn inserted at the end of Return of the Jedi...

You know,I've wondered about that one myself.

One of the biggest inconsistencies between the prequels and orignal trilogies is that Darth Vader is unaware that he has produced any offspring. In fact, Obi-Wan along with several people has gone to great lengths to conceal the children from being discovered. Yet Anakin (Darth Vader) is told in very clear terms by Padme that she is indeed pregnant. At no point, does Anakin have any reason to believe that his children are not alive and well. Even in his vision of Padme dying during childbirth, she still gives birth. It seems almost impossible to believe that Darth Vader is clueless to having fathered children.

Vader was told that he killed Padme on Mustafar. Remember that whole "Nooooooo!" business at the end? He choked her unconscious, and that was the last he saw of her. Vader had no reason to believe she'd survived long enough to give birth.

No Jar Jar Binks in the OT. He played a big role in Episode 1. Lesser in Episode 2. He played a key role in giving The Emperor all that power. Seems kinda odd that that he apparently turned into a force ghost.

For awhile I've believed that the Emperor eliminated underlings after they were of no use to him.

Yeah, if anybody cared, there'd probably be a nine-page thread about it somewhere!

I wonder where something like that would be?

Why does Mr Lucas feel the need to constantly bugger around with the magic he created for me and millions of others when I was ten?  Question

This was probably already pointed out somewhere in this thread but R2 knew everything in ANH and doesn't bother to inform anyone.   That kinda makes him lose street cred in my eyes.

To me, it kind of puts him more on the level of Ben or Yoda, part of the trusted inner circle. He knows what's going on, he's in on all the secrets, and he's much more of an instigator of events than a sidekick. It's pretty consistent with his behaviour when we first meet him. He knows the situation, he knows where to go and who to see. And if he's privy to inside information that only a handful of people share, he has a better grasp of the situation than the princess does, even though she's sending him on the mission. Makes him into a bit of a mastermind, in my view.

Poor R4, always forgotten.
I believe R4 was the republic's property, not Obi Wan's personal property.

Sure it can be implied that Lukes training was a few months long... but I'm not sure if Han would deal with C3-PO for a week. And the way Han and Leia were acting towards each other; I bet within the a week Chewbacca would of dump those two love birds at the nearest astroid.

You know whats funny, I really didn't give that much thought but yeah it doesn't seems like Luke had all that much time with Yoda.  If it was real time with Han and company's problems after the Hoth then I honestly think it couldn't have been more than a day or two. 

You have to figure they bailed on Hoth on...lets say a Monday morning.  They couldn't have been on the asteroid belt for longer than a few hours.  That includes their dilmea with the worm they were in.  Then by the time they bolted off to the Cloud City it was probably the next morning Tuesday.  By that evening Han was in carbonite and Luke had his hand chopped off.  Wow, that means Luke really did a lot of Force development between ESB and ROTJ. 

Wow...that just seems beyond stupid for some reason.
