Another General Alternative:

The Tragedy of Darth Vader (or Anakin Skywalker)
The Adventures of Luke Skywalker

 These are good, but I think they would be even better if they read:

The Tragedy of the Darth Vader (or Anakin Skywalker)
The Adventures of the Luke Skywalker

This really captures what the OP is looking for I think.

^not exactly, but thanks for boosting the topic.

just to clarify, my reservations with 'of the' bits is just so there are only like 2 at the most titles containing them.

some titles its just unavoidable.

anyone had any more ideas lately?

Simply a humorous bump :)

Here are some ideas:

Ep I: A Light in the Dark

Ep II: The Path to Destruction

Ep III: Revenge of the Sith

The idea with the first is it sort of mirrors A New Hope, since the first light falls in the end.  The second is supposed to have a double meaning in that Anakin and the Republic are going to fall.  The third I kept the same because I do feel it mirrors Return of the Jedi well.

Episode II: The Clone War

Seriously, that's the only one I would change. Attack of the Clones is such a dumb movie title.

I like these, and they make sense.

It could be particularly effective if Ep I is editted to portray the trade federation (or whatever they are renamed to) as a marauding entity that goes from planet to planet pillaging. If the republic is seemingly powerless to prevent it, then it would be just the heroes standing between victory and oblivion. Maybe this conflict would then end with the beginnings of the clone wars at the end (just without the clones!)

Ep II could perhaps have some of the political gloom shifted into it perhaps, I like the duality of both anakin and the republic heading the same way.

On a small side note. Reign of the Dark Side was already taken for my Ep 3 edit, But I'm sure Ben already knows that 8)

Sorry I probably should have asked first. I put that up,as with many of the other ones, as an example. If anything a library of all the titles would help as a springboard. I'll clarify it with links!

*if anyone recognises any titles and could help me with links that would be awesome!

Is that what you're calling your Episode I Smithers?

If I, for some reason, decided to do edits of the OT and beyond and continue adopting EU titles for them, I might go with these...

(Episode I: Cloak Of Deception

Episode II: The Approaching Storm

Episode III: Labyrinth Of Evil)

Episode IV: Rebel Dawn

Episode V: Shadows Of The Empire 

Episode VI: Heir To The Jedi

Episode VII: The Force Unleashed

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

If it truly was a I-VI saga, I think the titles of the OT would better reflect the preceeding events, so it does make some sense. Its fun to imagine anyway.

I have dubbed my own alternate titles for the episodes in MACHETE order as so (some of these adopted from ideas previously introduced in this thread, thanks!):

Episode I: Ways of the Force
Episode II: The Empire’s Wrath
Episode III: Reign of the Darkside
Episode IV: Edge of Disaster
Episode V: Rebel’s Legacy

In addition to the ‘extended’ versions of the prequels that ADigitalMan released, he also re-cut each of them too. I always happened to like the title he gave to his TPM edit, which was ‘Episode I: A Vergence In The Force’

(and the other titles he used were ‘Episode II: Path To The Darkside’ and ‘Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith’)

Here’s his thread - originaltrilogy.com/topic/id/2446

Despite my intention to alter a lot of George’s prequel footage for myself, I’ll be keeping the existing ‘The Phantom Menace’/‘Attack Of The Clones’/‘Revenge Of The Sith’ title scrolls just as they are - but I think ‘Episode I: A Vergence In The Force’ would have been a terrific title to name the ‘first’ chapter of the official prequel trilogy with instead…as I really happen to like how the combination of words work together.

And as far as the original ‘STAR WARS’ movie goes…even though we’re all completely used to it being sub-headed ‘Episode IV: A New Hope’ these days, I reckon ‘Episode IV: A Vergence In The Force’ could have also worked as an excellent re-naming of that particular chapter too, at the time.

I’ve always loved the name “STAR WARS: From The Adventures Of Luke Skywalker” but I don’t know how that would fit in your renaming.

I think that Attack of the Clones is the worst, so I have thought of some alternative titles. I think that “A Galaxy Divided” would be good because thats what the premise is. “Dark Force Rising” would work well too, because throughout the film Palpatine slowly rises to more power. I also remember somewhere that someone suggested “The Republic Storms Forth” as a title, which mirrors “The Empire Strikes Back” and also alludes to the fact that the clones will become Stormtroopers.

I remember one of the speculated titles for Episode 7 before “The Force Awakens” was revealed was “The Ancient Fear” and remember feeling like that would make a good alternate title for Episode 1. It has a similar idea to “The Phantom Menace” but sounds much more mysterious and mirrors “A New Hope” nicely.

I haven’t had any issues with the titles of the movies to be honest, the only one that bugs me it’s “A New Hope”, too passive not interesting at all…

Some alternatives that I had imagined before are maybe…

“Galaxy At War” (like the video game)
“Assault of the Alliance”
“Dawn of the Rebellion”
