Kurtz was the reason we have the OT the way it is, and didn't turn into the PT like what you get when your producer is yes-man Rick McCallum.

Sadly, he was not involved in Jedi, which is essentially why we got Ewoks.

Exactly. Gary Kurtz would have never let it devolve into Chewie doing the Tarzan yell. Although some of the comedy banter in ROJ is fine, and that likely wouldn't have gotten by him either (I'm thinking of Han piling on stuff to 3PO and then telling him to hurry up as he doesn't have all day  :rollfloorlaffsmiley: ).
