We've had a few Star Wars related threads before. But I think what's needed is a conglomerate thread where we can discuss anything and everything about Star Wars. I notice that it's actually really popular around the Forums, a notice I picked up on considering Star Wars characters have done very well in a few Vote to Wins on Forum Games.
I've always loved Star Wars. I was and still am a big fan for quite a while. I always subconciously knew of Star Wars existence as a kid but wasn't a huge fan until I played the first Star Wars Battlefront. Playing that game and seeing the movies got me hooked.
On regards to the different trilogies I actually like both of them for what they brought. Yes I know that the Originals are mainly considered far better then the Prequels but I actually like the Prequels enough to say they weren't entirely unnecessary. I'm able to overlook some of the rather bland acting done for Anakin and Padme and to focus how stuff is shaped in order to get to how the Original Trilogy starts out with.
On non-movie stuff. I have actually read alot of Star Wars books. I may not remember everything but there was some stuff I liked. And on the Shows, I loved the 2D Clone Wars thing done by the creator of Samurai Jack and Dexter's Lab. I've also seen a bit of the 3D Clone Wars one but I'm not sure if I can really enjoy it as obviously we know what's going to happen to the characters after the series is over. All the kid-friendly happy Scenes with Anakin talking with other Jedi kinda gets ruined by the fact that Anakin sets off to kill pretty much most of them (Including kids) in Revenge of the Sith. And of course Grievous and Dooku are too, even if they're beaten in some sort of fight or their plan is foiled they're going to escape in Clone Wars since they don't meet their end until Revenge of the Sith.
I could say alot more. But Star Wars really is a broad topic. I can't really say thoughts on everything in just one post. If a discussion comes on a particular thing, I'll comment on that if I have anything to say. For now, May the Force be with you and start posting.
