I hate when Prequel fans say you dont like the Prequels/Prequel story because Lucas didnt write it they you wanted it or expected it when i find BS it just wasnt executed good enough thats the problem IMO for me and others probably...
I generally don't have a problem with the way the Prequels were layed out storywise. I think it could have been better if Lucas had stuck to the the hints that were dropped in the OT about what happened in the PT, but such is life.
I have a problem with all the little stuff that was messed up: Anakin's and Obi-Wan's "friendship", the way Beru and Owen played into the story, the failure to show the beginnings of the Rebellion, Anakin's and Padme's romance.
Then there was the stuff that just came out of left field: Anakin creating C-3PO, the midiclorians, the conception by the force, the allusion that Palpatine created Anakin.
Then there are the major points: Anakin's turn to the dark side, Padme's whole role as Anakin was falling to the dark side, Padme's death, Boba Fett's origins, Palpatine's seizure of power, the Jedi being portrayed in a way that we don't really care when they are killed.
The basic story to the Prequels was okay at best....nothing really mind blowing to me, but when you throw all this other stuff into the mix, you hurt things a lot. If Lucas had dropped much of this stuff and gotten the rest right, the Prequels would actually be quite good.
