I personally don't see any comparison with the Star Wars prequels and The Avengers. I'm not a person that uses hyperbole and says that everything sucks or is great, but I'd say that Lucas is a poor script writer and director. He's very interested in the technical parts of filmmaking so some of his scenes come across as effects for the sake of effects, while Whedon is a very strong writer when it comes to characters so I think every scene manages to put something else above the effects.
That's true, but that complain was about people complaining about the prequels having "bad CGI", many don't say badly placed CGI, they just say it was bad, when it was in fact the best CGI of its time and has barelly aged, the problem in those films was that it was indeed overused, besides the scripts being bad.
I wouldn't call Joss Whedon a good plot writer, his plot's nothing special, he's a characters writer who excells in writing scripts, George Lucas is a good storyteller, the original trilogy should be enough to show that, he's just terrible in writing scripts.
