Cracked.com does a lot of "Top x stupidest Star Wars y" lists, but one they published today actually hit close to home. It's called "5 Reasons Star Wars Sequels Would be Worse than Prequels".
You see, the Star Wars Expanded Universe (called the "Exploited Universe" in one of the best SW prequel parodies) has basically run out of ideas and gotten incredibly lame. For example, the ending of Return of the Jedi pretty much killed off the best bad guys in the series. What's a Star Wars writer to do? Aha--they can use that whole cloning loophole from Episode II to clone Emperor Palpatine millions of times! You can never run out of enemies now!
Yes, I realize that cloning the Emperor basically cheapens the whole plot of the six movies, which are basically about Anakin Skywalker destiny as the "Chosen One", who eventually destroys the Sith, but who needs mythological symbolism anyway?
