He had nothing left, his wife was dead, the Jedi Order was destroyed, and as far as he knew his children were dead.

What was left but to serve the Emperor, his only "friend"?

That's rather disappointing. I thought there was gonna be a first-movie-only discussion, like pretending just for the arguments sake that no film was ever made past the first one.
Wasn't it true that when the first movie was made, they didn't have the whole "Luke Skywalker's father" thing planned at all? Or am I making that up?

Why the hell would you do that?

The entire starwars saga was made before episode 4 (the original starwars) was released. The reason Lucas decided to start with 4 was because he wasn't sure if he'd be able to make sequels and he felt the events leading up to episode 4 would be too hard to put on screen with movie technology at the time it was made. He purposely avoided releasing episodes 1, 2 and 3 until movie making technology was able to create the vision he had for it in his head.

He probably DID tweak the original story based on all the starwars fandom that had spawned during the orignal trilogy, but yes, Lucas started the story in the middle on purpose because he felt the clone and droif wars would be nearly impossible to produce without being campy with the technology of the time.

Oh. Wow. That actually does sound like Lucas. Not sure where I heard about the father thing coming in later. Probably just heard it as a rumor and thought it sounded cool. Oh well. Guess there is no initial argument.

Interestingly enough, I heard about this in a documentary about Star Wars that was made BEFORE episode 1 was even in production. Way before. They mentioned in the documentary that "Star Wars" was actually the 4th chapter and as of the documentary Lucas was "waiting in hope" that technology would eventually allow him to produce the first 3.

How odd. It's like the more I hear about Lucas himself, the more disappointing he seems. It's like he's sitting on top of this huge empire of success, but only because there were other people reigning him in.

He chose to start the first starwars where he did both because he felt that if he was only going to get to make one movie, that was the most interesting part and because it was the part that was the most technologically feasible at the time.

When he made the first one he was not sure how well it would do, so he wasn't planning on sequels.
