If you could make your own se change, what would that be?

Fix all errors. There is no reason to change anything else.

The originals - nothing

The SE’s - revert to original but Harmy’s done that for us

I agree with the change to make Ian McDiarmid the Emperor hologram in ESB. Though I would have tried to make him resemble the ROTJ Emperor more than the ROTS Emperor and would not have changed any dialogue. I also don’t mind any of the little fixes and clean-ups, and even a few of the subtle/tasteful CGI enhancements like the Cloud City windows.

But other than that, nothing. I can’t think of any additional changes I would make myself. George has already gone way above and beyond the threshold of any possible change that could be good and then some, by far. That’s why we’re here.

Neither of these make sense by the parameters of the question.

A sensible answer?

I’d like all the compositing done cleanly - no garbage mattes or black lines or transparent objects. I know there’s many who are sentimental about them (especially on this site!) but it’s something that always draws attention to itself for me. It certainly wasn’t ever intended to be that way so I’d be happy to make that change.

In the prequels, I’d edit the end of ROTS so that Padme doesn’t die.

In the originals, my one change must be two, the first of which is to have the first Death Star only partially destroyed. The second change is of course to the crawl of ROTJ to indicate that the Empire is repairing the First Death Star instead of building another one.

Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change? - oojason

Then there’s no need to respond to the question.

The Ben v Vader duel in ANH: it can be improved with the existing footage and if needed a few new shots could have been done with doubles to make this fight more nervous.

If another change could be wished, I would go with new scenes for the battle of Endor to see a real fight between ewoks and stormtroopers (and something close to that could be reinserted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gT-ZsR2P8dU).

I’d remove the downed AT-AT getting blown up since “That armor’s too strong for blasters!”
I like what Ady has done to it- with the lasers hitting the more obviously damaged neck, but I’d rather see that shot replaced by Snowtroopers repelling out of the AT-AT and running towards the Rebel trenches.
This way when we cut to the Rebel soldiers and “C’mon!” they have a reason to be heading out onto the battlefield. As it stands, it seems like the Rebel troops are running out into danger for no reason at all.

The continuity of the sky is off, worse so in the Special edition, actually.

Didn’t they add what looked like storm clouds to the sky in the Special Edition?
