What works in games doesn't necessarily work in movies, and what fanboys like isn't necessarily what the general audience would like.
What part of the general audience that liked either the OT or Prequels would be opposed to large scale lightsaber fights between Jedi and Sith? I'm not talking about a two hour ongoing battle; there would obviously have to be a compelling story and characters wrapped around it for the movie to be viable. But I just don't see what is particularly "fanboy" exclusive about this.
The fanboy stuff would be using sexy females (Boba lady and the Twi'Lek) and the "Our time is at hand" old crap.
Dozens of lightsabers doesn't help much either.
Anyone who liked this should have had no problem with Episode II whatsoever.
