REVIEW  Stories of adventure and heroism

The great appeal of Star Wars is slightly mysterious. There are times when it's clumsily written (Obi-Wan's explanation, in Return of the Jedi, for why he said Vader killed Luke's father is my favourite example: "So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view") and though I needed others to point them out there are some big plot holes (why does Vader connect with Luke through the Force, but not Leia?). What makes Star Wars special, however, is the beauty of its storytelling. Say what you like about George Lucas, he created his own rich, developed world, populated by aliens and characters who've become timeless. These stories, perfectly crafted and paced, awaken our sense of adventure. The Death Star, the Force, lightsabers, Jedi Knights and other features of this world are simple concepts which enchant the imagination. Whenever I watch these films I'm left in awe of them. They're visual masterpieces, which fully realise many different species and places, but they're also terrific stories that explore classic themes, like love, hate, death, friendship and betrayal.
People often regard The Empire Strikes Back as the strongest of these films, and Return of the Jedi as the weakest. I don't really understand this differentiation between episodes. In my opinion they're all about as good as each other and tell the same story, just from different stages. (Disregarding the prequels) A New Hope is the setup, Empire the middle and Jedi the climax.
Aside from one, I have no problems with the changes Lucas has made to these films. I don't care that Greedo now shoots first, for instance. I understand why Lucas wanted to soften Han's character, and even if Greedo hadn't shot first he would have if given the chance, leaving Han no choice but to defend himself. Either way, Greedo wanted to kill Han so Han killed him before he could. Han still walks away with blood on his hands, which should please those who miss the original scene.
The only change I dislike is the replacement, in Return of the Jedi's last shot, of Sebastian Shaw with Hayden Christensen, who plays Anakin Skywalker in the prequels. It's just wrong, and badly scars what is otherwise a perfect film. When Anakin joins Yoda and Obi-Wan to appear to Luke from the afterlife, he should be an old man, not just for consistency but because it's more poignant. Vader's finally transcended his mask and is at peace. Also, as if the replacement itself wasn't bad enough, Hayden's expression is wrong. He looks cocky, like a college kid making sex eyes at a girl across the room, not a father gazing benevolently at his son. That change annoys me to the point of almost wanting to deduct one star from this box set, but that would be churlish. Star Wars Episodes IV through VI are masterpieces, and not even a mangled final shot can destroy them.
