He was always ambitious, but the technology and budget constraints (at least of the first movie) used to keep him in check; kept the original movies feeling gritty and real, focused on character and plot development instead of special effects.

The worst thing to happen to George was that his dreams came true. Suddenly he could make his vision hit the big screen exactly how he imagined, and it turns out his visions are a little too... "grandiose" for many of his fans' tastes.

Personally I loved it, it was some of the more horrid characters (*shudder* gungans) and some really slap dashed acting that stops the prequel for me to be perfect, it was a different feel than the OT, but that was because the prequels were from a different time where the cities were bigger, the battles were larger, the conspiracies abundant. The prequels were the stuff of ancient myths and legends, the OT was more of a down to earth uprising between the time of legends
