Ugh! Lucas names fifth Star Wars 'Attack of the Clones'. Attack of the Clones!?! You'd think he might have realised his mistake when he saddle the first film with 'The Phantom Menace' which is still a terrible title three years later. At least if he'd called it 'The Clone Wars' (which I think we all might have been expecting) it would have made sense and respected the opinions of the fans. People often complain that film trailers have a habit of giving away the plot. Does this mean we're ushering an age when the title does as well? By this thinking 'A New Hope' would have been 'The Death Star is destroyed by a farm boy', 'The Empire Srikes Back' finds itself saddled with 'A Visit to Cloud City' and 'Return of the Jedi' becomes 'A New Death Star Is Destroyed (Again)'. Oh well AotC it is then. Aaaah!
