I think this one wrapped things up pretty nicely, but with the Death Star II, it kinda seemed to be a redo of ANH..
I agree that it is a great movie. The final development of the characters is excellent, one of the reasons I think the OT is so much better than the PT.
And I also agree with you on the Death Star II. When I first watched it...A Long Time Ago On A Couch Far Far Away...it was kinda like "well here we go again". But you grow to love the Death Star II....and it's destruction :P
