    I don't know why people hate the second episode so much...it had to happen otherwise the original 3 wouldn't exist. I liked it for the mere fact it was Star Wars. To not like episode 2 would be to hate Star Wars and that would be ashaming myself.

    But it wasn't good or like the others in any way! It was cheesy and just cliche. It was not unique or new or anything that would make it worthy to be a Star Wars movie, in my opinion.

    I thought they did a bad job, its only Star Wars in the sense it has the same characters, it was really.....lame, thats the best word i can use to describe it. The massive jedi battle was novel, but that was about the only "cool" thing in it.

    Don't forget the dialogue. Or maybe you should forget.

    Not really.....Like Lady_of_Shalott said, it was pretty cheesy. I still love Star Wars but that one was just really bad. Jango was neat, but overall it was lame.

    Yup. We really should forget dialogue, like isengard111 suggested. I still shudder when I think about the Padme/Anakin scenes. Ick.

    I hate to say anything but we're majorly straying off topic...the thread is to talk about Ep 3 titles, there are threads around that bas Ep 2...

    yes strider is right. thanks for reminding us:) back on topic. I suppose the EP3 title is fitting although I would have liked "The clone wars" better but it woud be too similar to "attack of the clones"

    "The Clone Wars" would not have worked for a few reasons.

    First and foremost, the movie is not about the Clone War. Attack of the Clones was about the beginning of the War. The Clone War is covered by the comics and The Clone War animation on Cartoon Network. Ep. III is basically the end of the War and the advant of the Empire.

    Second, also impoartant, is that "The Clone Wars" does not fit with the other episode titles. All the other titles are descriptive about the theme of the movie: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Manace, Attack of the Clones. "The Clone Wars" is too small in scope as it only refers to one single event -- and one that is not the focus of the movie.

    Besides, the Clone War is merely a device that Palpatine used and manipuated to establish the Empire and exterminate the Jedi -- which, together, is the Revenge of the Sith.
