I personally think it's the Holiday Special...I mean Jefferson Starship?  Beatrice Arthur?  Harvey Korman?  Ugh...And that stupid song sung by Carrie Fisher at the end for that Life Day celebration!   :shakehead:

With these three reasons alone the Holiday Special wins first place.

If I picked something directly movie related it would be Midiclorines  :mad0218:

The Holiday Special IS the worst thing associated with the Star Wars Universe. There is NO SINGLE redeeming item in that televised "special". Life Day?!?!?!? Chewie's son "Clumpy"?....I really try to block any of that out. The other items you posted are at least associated with movies that have some redeeming attributes.

I vote other...I think one of the worst things to happen has been the rapid advance in computer, digital, and film technology.  Yeah its cool to see Yoda fighting and everything else that Digital Technology has allowed for but I think it also made LUcas a little techno-crazy...I like the fact that the original Star Wars had a solid storyline, pretty good actors, and super good dialog (compared to the Prequels)!  I think Lucas focused so much on creating new digital charecters and pushing the limits of film making that he forgot about plot, character arcs, decent dialog...stuff that makes a movie enjoyable.  Too many movies are made with tons of crazy digital effects and people go for those but the movie as a whole sux...I would rather see a well written, well directed, well acted movie with little or no special effects over those anyday.

PLEASE DONT FLY OFF THE HANDLE AND ATTACK ME...I LOVE STAR WARS...ITS JUST AN OPINION ABOUT FOCUSING ON THE TECHNOLOGY OVER THE STORY!!!

The Holiday Special IS the worst thing associated with the Star Wars Universe. There is NO SINGLE redeeming item in that televised "special".

Many people would count the Fett cartoon as a redeeming aspect of it.

My choice here would be the length of time between ROTJ and TPM.  It caused too much anticipation, and the result was an expectation for the PT that could not be met in the eyes of many people.

By far the Holiday Special. I don't even like to think about it, it's so bad. I'd rather eat cake off a gas station toilet then watch the holiday special again. Nothing else in the Star Wars Universe is as bad as that show. :shakehead:

I think the Holiday Special is forgivable.

GL was young and... well he didn't need the money, but he sure wanted it. Besides which, the show is pretty much out of circulation and goes for the most part forgotten.

IMO, the worst thing to happen to the SW universe is Episode I.

Jar Jar, midichlorians, "Yippee", Jake Lloyd, "are you an angle," Jar Jar, that terrible looking Yoda puppet, Jar Jar, Jake Lloyd, a 5 hour pod race, Anakin was WAY too young, "exsqueeze me," "let's try spinning that's a good trick- WHOOOAA," the dancing midget Rhodian and let's not forget Jar Jar.

Cut all that's wrong with Episode one and you have a really good half hour movie.

the worst thing abot TPM, is that it tainted the entire PT and divided the fans up into PT vs OT fans forever.

If only the whole movie could be re-done.  :tongue0024:

I think the fact that they finaly released Star wars on DVD and didnt do half as much as they could of with it, the worst thing to happen in my eyes is kinda something that didnt happen, and that is the wampa attack, and when 3p0 takes off the warning on the door, with all that lucas does to try and make these films better, film that scene.

I wanted to say Gungans, but generally speaking... if you lopped off Jar-Jar's head and stuck a cork in Boss Nass' slobbering yap they would have been tolerable in the movies.

The only thing really annoying about the Ewoks was the song... and Lucas fixed that for me.

The Holiday Special I only saw once when I was a wee lad... I know it was horrible but it is such an old wound I barely even notice it anymore...
