GL is just bitter because the prequels were bad and the critics and fans told him so, this is his way of getting back at them.

While I would never wish harm on any other human being Lucas need to stop playing this "pity me, Iím the victim here card". The pres were bad. We told you they were bad, get over it and don't make the same mistakes next time you make a movie.

But the Original Trilogy would have been exactly the same if Lucas did all the writing for those to.

Don't bomb on Lucas, bomb on Lawrence, the guy who wrote ESB and whom refused to write the script for the Phantom Menace and following films.

We were all very selfish, and if I were in George's shoes, I'd have done exactly the same thing.
Well Rayla to be fair, he did write and direct ANH and that turned out to change the world(he also wrote ESB/ROTJ story and the screenplays were based on them). Its more the fans fault, because they had too high expectations for the PT and probably not realizing that no movie is EVER perfect.

Also I don't think he is QQing, or upset at all guys. ITS HIS MOVIES! Why would he get upset, over some fans who critize his movies because he made them the way he wanted to?

Also bad is subjective, I like all the movies....so no movie can ever be bad because people like different things.

This kinda posting is the reason why Lucas does not want to make other movies.

Good for George! An artist needs to be able to step back from his work, to let it go. For me the most telling statement is: "there are more important things in the world".

He's right.

Ok, I just felt the need to answer this one especially....

George Lucas has made HOW MUCH money from us??? All the movies, books, comics, games that he is getting royalties from because he owns the IP, and we spit on him??? He spit on US with those horrible prequels! Yes, the basic story was awesome, and the special effects were great, but that doesn't excuse his QQing over it. He made bad movies, and he was pissed off because WE didn't like them??? So instead of trying to make things right, he throws a pantyfit over it.

I know he owns the IP, but that doesn't excuse how he treats his fans that have stuck by him in spite of the prequels, and in spite of him not giving a damn about them....

Being forever we StarWars fans been asking him to make more movies and when he did we were liek #$%^&*(*&^%$#$%^&*&^%$#$%^&!!!!!! Yea I would say that is enough to feel like "You know if they are going to talk to me like that , then I will show them who the BOSS is " and rightfully so he did and will continue to do until he wakes up one special day and says "I miss making StarWars movies" which is doubtful but possibly could happen .

This recent season of StarWars Clone Wars has seem more of him being involved that ever , and he has been extremely involved in ForcesUnleashed 1 and 2 . I wouldn't doubt if he had a little or big hand into TOR here and there as well .
But really its the fanbase and the extreme side of it with the threats and constant attacks that probably keep him from doing it.

So next time you see a extreme fan ripping on a StarWars Author remember those are the issues he has with his own creation's fan base as well . It does not help the whole !!

I liked them, they weren't bad to me. Bad is subjective when it comes to entertainment.

Hire whatever company made the SWTOR intro cinematics and have them make the next star wars movie(s). The lightsaber fights in those battles seem more realistic to me choreographically than any of the live movies.
