This kind of detailed analysis ruins a franchise you know?
Remember when they talk about midichlorian in episode I?
Starwars is a space western about space cowboys with cool powers... Eff midichlorian. George Lucas, stop trying to analyze everything. G*ddamn it! Effing ruined a great franchise.
What the eff was the trade federation, senate chambers, effing trade war? What the eff? trade? It should be about whether or not Han shot first.
BTW, I failed the geek test too.
Oh, and having some of the more mediocre actors in a big movie in recent memories (I'm looking at you Jake Lloyd and Hayden Christensen) and some of the worst dialog in the English language ("Only the Sith deal in absolutes" OMFG) does not help.
