Just cos there wasn't a lot of whiz bang pow doesn't mean it was pathetic. They were concentration. Really Really Hard.

Count Dookie needed to do back flips and shit. Obi & Darth are so good that they can win duels by just sticking out their arms and going poke poke poke. Or... at least Darth can.

More to the point, the prequels are completely fucking tasteless and classless. The lightsabers in the original had weight because they didn't come out at the drop of a hat - the sounds were deep and gave the impression of power and danger. The Force in the original was mystical and zen-like - it was about knowledge and perception, not bullshit mutant superpowers.

Also, if you're playing with some sort of coherent plasma blade that is going to chop off and cauterize anything unfortunate enough to touch it, you'd naturally plan your movements much more carefully.

solid points, they did seem to be far more careless and lackadaisical concerning their handling and interaction with the light sabers...

That's what I was thinking.

The whities with the inferiority complex need the medals.

Han should have 3 medals. One for each Deathstar, and one for wasting Greedo regardless of who shot first. Chewbacca should of course be invited to the award dinner.

Wouldn't Lando and Wedge deserve the medal more than Han for the second Death Star Destruction? I know, I know, Han deactivated the shield. Just saying.

Han got to feel up Leia, that's got to be worth something. And really, ROTJ, they didn't get medals, they just got to hangout with Ewoks.

Not only did Chewie get snubbed, but so did Wedge and that random Y-wing pilot that must have gotten lost during the fight.

Yeah, all Wedge got was some hugs from the fucking Ewoks a few years later. Fuck that shit, man.

Special isn't a word I would use to describe the Star Wars Holiday Special. Tbone, Bacomrade, and I soldiered through this last night. Ugh.

Special is used euphemistically in this sense. As in, Corky is a....special person.

This is entirely relevant to this thread. And pretty awesome. Don't say I didn't warn you of the elevated nerd level of this link . . .

some fucking retard on the internet wrote:Chewie's first problem is what is happening between Luke and Leia. With a psychic link they can feel but not understand, thrown together in a life-or-death escape, they are looking at each other with a sparky intensity that Chewie gradually recognises as Romantic Tension. He is no expert on human relationships but Chewie is fairly sure that that's Wrong, so he does the only thing he can think of under the circumstances - he throws Han at her.
Seriously?
I mean SERIOUSLY?

some fucking retard on the internet then wrote:Han and Luke get medals but Chewie doesn't. Actually, Leia offers him one but the wookiee turns it down.
Really?
I just fucking watched this and didn't see no Wookie being all like "Nah bitch, I don't need one of them shits. I got one from a green midget."

Whoever wrote this bullshit is a fine example of why abortion has its uses.

That part about R2D2 brokering a deal with the Jawas to sell him and C3PO to Owen Lars and Luke Skywalker? Ridiculous. Jawas literally buy and sell droids. They don't make deals with the hardware. It's sorta like the dope dealer's "don't get high on your own supply" rule.

Besides, the movie shows quite clearly that the Jawas made no effort to sell R2 to Owen. He only received R2 as compensation after the original R5D4 he'd purchased blew a motivator while Luke was leading it away from the Jawa camp.

Stupid nerd. If you're going to write fan fiction, at least make a token effort to know the canon.
