>"'Star Wars' is like getting a box of Cracker Jacks which is all prizes. This is the writer-director George Lucas's own film, subject to no business interference, yet it's a film that's totally uninterested in anything that doesn't connect with the mass audience.

Yes but have you ever told Luke about Ki-Adi-Mundi? He was a cerean Jedi Master with a seat on the council. Due to low birth rates on Cerea, he was permitted to have several wives. He was a good friend.
