My super unpopular take is that not only is RotS the worst and most soulless of the three prequels, but the best prequel in my opinion is AotC.
Most disagree, but for whatever reason Clones is just the film that feels the most in line with what I love about Star Wars. TPM feels weird and disconnected from the rest of the saga in tone, and RotS always felt like a string of boring conversations held together with video game style boss battles to me.
AotC, despite the sillier stuff, the overuse of CGI and the terrible romance, has some of my favourite additions to the Star Wars mythos. I always thought Boba’s origin fleshed out his character in a more interesting way than some of the other retcons, Obi-Wan finding the clone factory brought some of the mystery of exploring new worlds from the OT back, and the Battle of Geonosis feels like such an exciting and pivotal moment in the franchise.
In the same way I don’t understand the intense praise people show for RotS, I don’t get why AotC is SO despised by many. I feel like too many people get hung up on the bad stuff, but I would argue that it has higher highs than RotS, and feels like a much more intriguing story despite all it’s flaws.
RotS took too much mystery away from the OT and it was a little too hard to get invested in a story where you know pretty much every outcome. AotC on the other hand was the first time we ever got to see the clone wars in any capacity, and without it we never get The Clone Wars or Rebels.
TL;DR - I’m probably about to make a lot of enemies.
