So I was chatting to a few friends today about the SW saga, and all the spin offs from it. We were largely in agreement that the sequels have left a massive stain on the Star Wars legacy. I actually can't beleive how easily I have erased the ST from my mind. I never felt like this with the PT, although AOTC is probably easy to forget. I mentioned how the hype leading up to the Special Editions was very good for the PT as it meant Star Wars was back, and the hype when TPM was released was memorable. The fact that the PT were part of the saga because of Anakin and his turning to the dark side really helps the PT to keep momentum going. The ST however was shocking and I never felt the same as with the PT. As I'm one of the lucky ones who was there from the start in he 70s, maybe I expect too much, but it's actually weird how easily I have forgotten the sequels.
