I also found this page that has some in-depth info on the topic: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Midi-chlorian
Things like this make me embarrassed to like Star Wars.
I agree, I also think that midi-chlorians were a bit too much... Like many other things in episodes 1-3 (it would take too much time to list all the annoying things, problems and "flaws"...). I was just wondering what inspired Lucas to include such things in a first place... Personally my favorites are the original episodes, the new ones cannot compete in any level. Just wanted to clarify that I did not start this thread because I think midi-chlorians are amazingly cool, I was just wondering what inspired Lucas when he came up with them. And when I found that SW "wiki" page I thought it was simply hilarious... :) :) :)
