Which, as I said, could have been written a lot better and wasn't.
...And the entire scene could have been compressed and altered into the Sith Palpy reveal.
Because he immediately spins around to Padme and the love 'plot' continues.
Episode 1. The only time the word Angel is used in Star Wars... And it still didn't need to.
Specifically, the writing in those scenes. But I really should have listed some, my apologies.
Because a dead alien and Anakin abusing traffic safety laws. Like, Episode 1 solved this - and I used solved loosely - by saying "Padme doesn't like Palpy not doing anything, so time to back cue Jar Jar screaming". Sequels, from last I checked in Star Wars, try to do something better than the last.
You're missing the point.
Dexter Jetster's entire existence was unnecessary because they could have given that pat out any other way. For instance, it was stuck super deep in the jedi Archives and the hider (Was it Quinlan Vos I forget) did a poor job at it, and since nobody else looked, Obi-Wan brings it up.
Would we have met Flesh Diner Grievous that way? no, but while that mock-up scene that took me half a second to think up would be very lackluster, it would still be an improvement.
With all due respect, most of the scenes I listed here are filler because of how they're filmed. Had they been filmed in a much better manner, they would be reasonable scenes that kept us engaged in what was going on. But thanks to George and whoever else there was, they weren't, and so the plot points can just be shoehorned into another preexisting scene which wasn't much better to begin with, or flat-out dropped because the little plot that was there wasn't that worth keeping.
I'd really love for the Prequels to be good. But do we have to go through with a cleaver before they can get that way?
