Re: George Lucas - Why the Vitriol?
They're his films he can change them if he wants to it. You and I may not like it but such is life. Some of the changes were for the better, surely adding the vistas of Cloud city as our characters walk along the corridors enhances those scenes?
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
