But then again, depends what you're into
I think both trilogies suffer from the same problem, in reverse. The OT has a very strong start, but it felt like Lucas held a lot back from the conclusion. There wasn't much to it aside from having Luke go up against Darth Vader. In the case of the PT, the first two films have some excellent ideas and themes, but they feel disjointed between the two films. ROTS feels like what the prequels wanted to be on the whole.
