Re: What would you have done differently?
I wouldn't have severely undermined Yoda by making him fight like a cartoon grasshopper. That paired with midichlorians completely subverts the great "luminous beings are we" scene in Empire, where the emphasis was not on physical prowess and combat skills but on spiritual power.
O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells.
Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills.
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths, for you the shores a-crowding.
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning.
