I repeated the same thing because no one answered it.
It wouldn't break any pace. That would add more emotion to Luke's failure.
We are truly of different generations of film fandom if you still aren't getting this.
The very best thing I've heard in a long time that highlights this gap is from "Spaced", a brilliant English comedy starring Simon Pegg of "Shaun of the Dead" fame. Tim Bisley works in a collectibles shop, and an 8 year old wants to buy a Jar Jar doll. He explodes:
"You are SO blind! You so do NOT understand! You weren't there at the beginning! You don't know how good it was, how important! This is it for you! This jumped-up firework display of a toy advert! People like you make me sick! What's wrong with you?!"
Lots of Star Wars references like that... He is so disapointed with TPM that there's a scene where he burns all his cherished SW merch on a funeral pyre in a re-enactment of ROTJ's burning Vader scene. Very funny show, shame it only lasted 2 seasons.
I remember that, Spaced was pretty funny. The difference is, it's nothing to do with the problem here, and I was never blinded by the "perfection" of the original movies, either. I've never liked Return of the Jedi, and that has nothing to do with Ewoks. So, nice clip, but inaccurate comparison. I neither hate all modern films nor blindlingly love those I saw when I was a kid, so, you might think you just summed me and others of my generation up, but no, not really.
