    • Annakin has a son he knows about
    • Annakin has a daughter he doesn't know about
    • Said son has to end up on tatooine with Uncle Owen
    • Said daughter has to end up a princess on Alderon
    • Ben has to almost, but not quite kill Annakin
    • All good Jedi except Yoda and Obi-Wan are slain
    • The Emperor gains control of the clones and has an iron-clad lock on the Senate (later dissolved in Episode 4)
    • The Stormtroopers get new helmets.
    • Annakin gets a new suit and his voice suddenly sounds like James Earl Jones
    • Grand Moff Tarki
    • Oh, and you forgot the scene where Luke's mom prophetically says, "Gee. I wonder if these two will ever end up on the wrong end of a love triangle because I separate them...naaaaah."

      Doesn't seem like that couldn't all happen in one movie. Might be a little crowded, sure, but what the hell.

      A lot of that doesn't have to be established as such; it just has to be hinted at properly. "What are you doing with the babies, so Vader won't get them?" "Obi-Wan is rescuing the boy. The girl is going to Alderan..." etc.

      Counting the birth scene (where Anakin steals the baby boy, we'll say for the moment) that's two scenes that tie up 4 points on the list. The rest of the movie could be nothing but action sequences involving fights (where Jedi are slain and Anakin is nearly killed) and medical scenes involving the helmet and suit, plus a little Boba Fett thrown in to keep the Boba stuff going, and it would minimally tie things up.

      • They've already set the scene for a bunch of these. Leia's "Father" has already shown up, though they didn't name him. Jimmy Smits in Episode II played "Bail Organa".

        Lucas has an advantage. He knows that we've already seen episode 4. All he has to do for a bunch of these is to just nudge the plot in that direction and leave the intervening 20 years between 3 and 4 to the viewer.

        The only thing I hope for is that we do bring Han Solo into the story in some way. He's already given nods to Boba Fett, Jabba
