You guys are crazy. Anything Hamill lacks is from "Youcanwritethisshitgeorgebutyoucan'tsayititis ". The irony being that Ford sold his lines perfectly.
Also direction. It is the directors responsibility to get the right takes from the actors. Somebody mentioned Guiness earlier--my guess is that the problem comes from a "shoot it and wrap" mentality where there was no waiting for the right delivery from any of the actors. Ford shines above the rest because this style probably suits him.
Look at Shatner's brilliance in STII compared to his acting in STV for example. In Khan many takes were done until Meyer (sp?) got the performance he wanted.
