The thing is, back in the 70s you could get away with being a minimal director like Lucas, because the actors were generally better.
Agreed to a point. Alec Guinness and Peter Cushing more or less directed themselves, whereas Hayden Christensen and Temuera Morrison...not so much. However there's little excuse for how Lucas failed to direct a gifted actress like Natalie Portman and got such disappointing performances out of her.
