This is a guy that had an innovative and original idea who managed break away from the studio system and create his own empire. The fans turned away from him after the prequels, saying other people were responsible for the original trilogies success (those same people would have blamed him for it failure if it wasnt) and were so happy a major studio was in charge of the franchise and a hack was chosen to direct the first installment of the sequel trilogy. Meanwhile, the original creator warned everyone of what would happen to their beloved universe after the slaveholders got their hands on it. It is now diluted and safe relying on previously popular concepts to hold it afloat whilst Georges original idea for the new movies was abandoned. I dont like that Lucas witheld the original cuts and kept tinkering with his films but at least he was bold enough to create new vistas and invest in outlandish concepts. Star Wars does do exist without him.
