How do you feel about the inclusion of “Episode V” in ESB’s opening crawl in 1980??

I think Lucas painted himself into a corner by giving each film a numerical chapter. There could have been endless STAR WARS films made and set before and after the original 1977 film - ALL legit STAR WARS films, without having to be spin-offs (ROGUE ONE, SOLO, etc) - and using John Williams.

I think I agree. It would have been very open ended in both directions if they had remained unnumbered. The original film still would have had a new crawl for the individual title.
