Interesting interpretation of the prequels, & I do say it generally correct.
The prequels take a lot of shyt but they aren't as bad as people make them out to be. Lucas (& I include all the other film makers who we never give proper credit to) tried to do a lo of interesting things with the prequels. I truly believe that a lot of the more interesting teases/hints/storylines could not be followed through due to making SW more commerically acceptable. (especially after the failure of ep 1) This left some story lines in a more grey area which actually adds to the stories when re-watching them as an adult.
