Jar-Jar Binks is Exhibit A on most fans’ lists of prequel sins. But as irritating and distracting as the CGI sidekick is, he is representative of a bigger problem: Star Wars didn’t need slapstick comedy. C-3PO and R2-D2 already provided the understated comic relief for the first trilogy, and since they were used in the prequels, too, Jar-Jar was completely unnecessary.

I think that you are off the mark here. While the prequels weren't as good as the original trilogy, they were still good movies.

Jar-Jar Binks & EWOKS, and all the puppet creatures who did not have leading roles!

BTW - Did anyone else take note that in addition to this aqusition of Lucas Arts / Star Wars,
Disney already owns the rights to the Muppets?

This could get bad, seriously bad.
