Darth Vader isn't calm in the original trilogy; he has always been very emotional
Time

And yet a lot of the most emotive lines are delivered in the exact same way, and it’s generally the same kind of malice. I find it all pretty consistent even if his actions soften in ROTJ. For example ‘I find your lack of faith disturbing,’ and ‘if you won’t join me then perhaps she will.’

They would never admit fault and retcon anything, but Clone Wars sets a precedent for additional media that normalises and patches over mistakes for an existing trilogy over time.

Star Wars has had a precedent to retcon things since the moment Vader said “I am your father” way back in 1980.

Coming up with a single plot development in a sequel isn’t the same as a dozen prequel TV shows.

Whether people like them or not the current ST will be buried in about 5 years by other media. Probably to included new trilogies or even new stories set in that period. Probably stories that will include more interesting character struggles that might be smaller scale than Palpy’s Revenge but have more depth. It wouldn’t be hard. So dream on, there’s no end in sight and even the most grave errors made in TROS could one day just be another zero weight side story…

Honestly I used to care less about any of the problems with SW as a whole. I could overlook the Special Edition changes and happily watch the prequels and all that other stuff. So in a way I can appreciate what people love about this stuff from endless force power battles to every minor character being integral to every tiny thing. But times have changed and you have to develop your critical skills sooner or later; that’s life.
