David Brin's Attack of the Clones Critique

David Brin knows how George Lucas can save the muddle that the Star Wars franchise has become. His suggestion is brilliant, and at the same time obvious. “Why else would Obi-Wan ‘hide’ Vader’s son in Vader’s home town? Their final ‘deathfight’ distracts the guards to let Luke/Han/Leia get away. How else do you explain that Vader grabs/interrogates Leia, yet never detects her force? Watch carefully… Vader’s ‘chase’ of Luke in the first film clears all the other Imperial fighters off his son’s back and halts the antiaircraft guns, giving the kid a clear shot! And guess who’s the only Imperial survivor?” —David Brin’s Attack of the Clones CritiqueDavidBrin.com)
