People seem to use the word "camp" a lot and I'm not sure I understand how they mean it.
Basically, anything that isn't "dark", with characters wallowing in constant "angst" and "Daddy issues" is dismissed as "camp". "Fun", an characters who act like actual people is not allowed.

This view is incorrect. These stories have their place, and I can enjoy them on occassion, but now pretty much EVERYTHING has become that. And it has become tedious.
I dunno. If you're right, how do you explain Jar Jar Binks?
Well, you could make the argument that there are exceptions to every rule.

But also remember that Jar Jar was created roughly four or five years before the whole "dark" thing told hold, so that probably plays into it too.
