First podcast on this site for me! BTW, can't forget C-3PO with his British accent! I never really considered the prequel aliens as having accents geared towards certain ethnic groups. I did watch the prequels while I was in middle school, so perhaps I just immersed myself into the universe compared to if I was older and analyzing the movies. In fact, Episode III, which happened to come out the week before my high school graduation, was a little of a disappointment due to expectations and thinking some of the dialogue was rather bad (though not as bad as Episode II's love story). Anyways, glad to hear some of the more interesting tid-bits on the GDC coverage. I know a lot of people hate comparisons to SWG, but it is the only Star Wars MMORPG out there... and some SWG folks from Lucasarts are involved with TOR. You'd expect some influences from SWG.

Welcome! Most of the consensus comes from the age discrepancy of hte audience which viewed the original trilogy as most of the aliens had subtitles or actual alien sounds as to where now the aliens all speak / common basic.

However it all ends up boiling down to if the viewer enjoyed the over all story or not.

I'm sure the mistakes and benefits of SWG are being considered into the production of SW:TOR.

Welcome. :)

You know, it's funny. I really like a lot of things in the prequel trilogy, yet I usually find myself complaining about the prequels.

I love Darth Maul, music and visuals of episode 1, but hate the story/acting of episode 1.

With Episode 2, the music and visuals are also great, and has some scenes I really love (like the asteroid belt fight), but again I find myself only complaining about stuff like the award love story.

Episode 3 I actually love the most. The first 20 minutes of episode 3 are SO cool. I love it. And I really like a lot about this movie, but I find myself complaining about anakins' turn to the dark side, or how obi-wan won the crazy long duel just by "having the high ground". Apparently darth maul didn't have enough high-ground when he had Obi-wan hanging in a pit in episode 1?
