I heard from Ign that this and the next episode really suffer from battle droids being annoying and silly

the point is: they're battledroids... Droids that in Episode III say "stop right there" and aim at R2; who than happily goes on an attempt to electricute one of them. What's the reaction? He gets kicked.
A battle droid should shoot him to smithereens...
Or when R2 sets fire on two of them... what were they doing there? They should have just shot him.

The point is, they're programmed for battle (hence the name) or have programming in piloting etc. They're not programmed to goof around (for instance: in EpIII in the elevator: "Drop your weapons!" followed by every battle droid saying "roger" twice...), they're programmed to patrol, search&destroy, etc...

Yeah, cause the Stormtroopers were, like, totally all uber evil and badass. Competent, too, unless met with the mighty force of Ewoks.

Dude, stop nitpicking about one scene. Not every bit of comic relief is 'childish'- sometimes, a little slapstick in an otherwise serious event helps. This isn't LotR- this is Star Wars, and a healthy sense of humor always helps to bring SW up. Besides, one scene like that doesn't make the first hour 'childish' or kid-friendly or whatever. Honestly, RotS is the only movie in the six that has scenes and themes which genuinely aren't 'kid-friendly'.

All that being said, however, I don't think there's a single SW movie that is made specifically for kids. If some of the more 'hardcore' fans could relax, they may find Jar Jar amusing, or at least tolerable. Instead of waiting to jump at the next scene that has the slightest element of childishness, just chill. All of the 'kiddy' stuff in the prequels suddenly become so much more tolerable.

I'm sorry, but it is pretty much aimed at children. And ROTS didn't have the only scenes that weren't "kid friendly".

Also, I think it would have been quite an interesting movie if they had gone at it having LOTR in mind. Probably not very Star Warsy, but could have been cool.

I believe the average PT fan's age is about 17. RotS, quite simply, has a storyline that- like ESB's- is too complicated for young children to fully comrehend. Political overtones, for example. I doubt your average kid will understand analogies to the war on Iraq? Or things about democracy's nature? I doubt a kid will fully understand the nature of Anakin's turn to the dark side, as well.

The only scene that truly isn't 'kid-friendly' in the saga is Anakin's immolation. Other than that, what scene is there that isn't appropriate for young audiences to watch?

Nah. LotR and Star Wars are very different things that I doubt will mesh together well.

They don't. As I said, I feel we are getting MORE silly elements...

dude, don't overthink star wars.

I was talking about childish battledroids, not storm troopers. The fact that they can't hit anything except an off-camera sandcrawler is nothing new and does not diminish their status as "dangerous footsoldiers". In most, almost all, series, the main heroes never get hurt.
That they look silly on dewbacks... they can't help it, that was inserted later on for the special edition (and after the '80s Lucas clearly went for the wishes of the little kids). The only other thing I can think of was that they got beaten by teddybears who only had sticks and stones which is a huge plothole imo.
This is all I can think off, nothing childish about them. Or have I missed scenes?

I don't like shows where they nerf the bad guys so badly just to make the good guys look good. The battle droids, aside from being ****ing idiots, totally suck in combat as well. That puts me off.

You've never liked any Star Wars film then? What with the stormtroopers and all.

Actually, yeah. One of the reasons why I think the OT sucks, specifically ANH. I can't watch the death star scene and look at Luke standing in the absolutel open not getting hit once without cringing. Indiana Jones has similar problems.

The droids in the PT movies aren't as nerfed, neither are the clones. It makes a lot more sense for them to get their asses kicked by trained Jedi Knights than it does for Luke "farmboy with no cover" Skywalker to stand in one spo taking out trained storm troopers without a single scratch. It's just... irritating.

And let's not even mention the Ewoks.


That's why I like Lord of the Rings. smile

edit- But, srsly. THe OT isn't an inherently bad movie at all. I just heavily dislike the black and white, good guys are better and always good and bad guys suck and are ultimate bad" type of story telling. I dislike that in any movie.

though LotR seems to be the exception...

Maybe you take fantasy/sci fi movies a tad too seriously.

How can anyone like the PT more than the OT? That just...doesn't compute.

Anyway, I rather liked this. Yes, it's silly and light-hearted but it still has the Star Wars feel to it.

Plus Yoda doing his crazy ESB laugh was freaking awesome.
