When I watch the despecialized I don’t see anything at all wrong. I never would have changed a thing. If Lucas were a better filmmaker he would have concentrated on making more movies instead of fiddling with the past. He wasn’t even confident enough to write the prequels without R2 and 3PO wedged in and ruining continuity.

wedged in? R2D2 and C3PO were always supposed to be in the prequels, even back in the 70s
in fact, it was said 4 decades ago that R2D2 and C3PO were supposed to be the only characters to appear in and survive the entire 9 (12, etc.) main sage films.

^this is true , and it was also said that the saga was being told from the viewpoint of the droids , but I think they do feel "wedged in " in the prequels . Yeah , Artoo had a couple of heroic moments , but the story could have been told without them , if you were to edit them out , with the exception of maybe artoo repairing the hyperdrive in TPM , it would not change the story of the prequels . I always thought the droids would have had a bigger role in them before the prequels came out . a missed opportunity imho .They just felt shoehorned in.
