1. Creating Black Holes(I think Luke did that so I heard anyway) If you can create a Black Hole, you really don't have to worry about the bad guys. I understand that it takes a lot of energy, but if you can master it, you don't need to worry about enemy fleets. Just suck 'em away like a vacuum cleaner.
2. Bad guys just won't die! The biggest bad guy ever(Palps) comes back from the dead, which, imo, defeats the ending of ROTJ. His return is understandable de to the fact tat this was early and EU writers had almos no ideas.
3. Super-Mando. Doesn't need explaining.
4. The Vong. They are abominations of life. Obi-Wans timeless phrase where he says "The Force surrounds us, It penetrates us, it binds the galaxy together." I believe by that he means that the Force is like the life giver of the galaxy. Everyone in the SWU is touched by The Force, the Vong are not. And thy are just plain ugly. They make great villains, but they could have found a different way for them to be unique(besides their smashing good looks)

That's pretty much it for me.
Very good points, but I would like to add to it.
1) About the black holes? I agree with you 100%.. PLUS even though Star Wars is sci-fi, sometimes a writer should do his homework in real life. For those that dont know, a black hole has such a great amount of pull.. that a black hole small enough to fit in the palm of your hand would absorb the planet Earth in less than a second. Now think about that. Yes this power is overkill.

2) I could maybe see him do it 1 time...MAYBE. In a movie you could have some actor that looks like a young Ian McDiarmid. Like the way the make up department tried to make Ewan McGregor look like Alec Guiness. 1 time max!

3) I like Boba Fett, but I never understood why people though he was so BA.. he didn't do anything in the movies. Total screen time in the OT is under 2 minutes.. Yes.. 2 minutes. Jango was cool cause at least we get to see him fight. It's only after watching Jango in Ep. 2 that I started to think Boba could be BA. Jango's ability against a Jedi was good.And the Bounty Hunter video game where you play as Jango was great and really made me like him even more and it had a good tie in with the movie. As for supermandos.. not so much.. I agree that is a bit much.

4) The Vong.. I was thinking about the very thing you brought up.. When Obi-Wan says "The Force surrounds us, It penetrates us, it binds the galaxy together.".. but to add to that.. Qui Gon says "Midi-Chlorians are a microscopic life form that resides in all living cells" and even says "Without the Midi-Chlorians,life could not excist". It's like the writer never even watched the movies.
