I'm going to word this as carefully as I can, because I'm a great admirer of Ady's work and I don't want this to come off too critical.  But I'm very eager to get some other opinions.

As much as I appreciate the vast majority of ANH:R, I find myself having a hard time watching it because of the Death Star interiors.  Every time we cut to the DS, I feel like I've stepped into Pleasantville...

The characters are in color (except for most of Darth Vader, minus his various lights) but everything else looks completely monochrome to my eyes.  I find it very distracting, especially in the hangar shots, in which my eyes register almost no color whatsoever.  (I wish I had the DVD with me to post a capture.)

I understand the desire to de-blue these scenes, but does anyone else find the desaturation a bit extreme?  I'd really like to know if it's just me or not.
