If you don't count Y-wings.
True, but I mostly have ignored a lot of the prequel stuff. I've tried to get into it, but I just can't. Guess because I'm a dyed in the wool OT fan since..well..since I was a kid in the '70s.
Heh, I'm the same way and I wasn't even born until 1987. I was at the upper edge of the youngest and most toy-oriented demos back when Episode I came out in '99 and while I enjoy the prequel films reasonably well enough and respect that The Clone Wars blossomed into a good show I've just never been able to care nearly as much as I do for the OT era. There's something timeless and irresistible about the against-all-odds swashbuckling space opera of that style.
And by the same token, we should hesitate to act as if anyone defending the prequels on any level must be some misguided millennial or Hannah Montana fan or something. I was right there at the drop in 1977 myself, watching the film, playing with the toys, reading the comics.
