you know it is interesting. I forgot how much i loved Yoda, and watching "The Empire Strikes Back" brought it all back to me. (it is on now) during the three "prequels" they made him so annoying, but when you see just the 10 minutes of screen time in TESB, you realize what was so cool again. Also, maybe it has to do with Frank Oz' voice not being the same over the years and being very different sounding in the recent movies then the originals...and also they had him talking backwards so much in the prequels that it just lost its luster and became annoying. Also, the original Yoda was a puppet...and had some "life" to it...the new Yoda was CGI and totally annoying. For example... look how annoying in the new ones YouTube - Yoda: Muppet or CGI? and look how great in the Empire Strikes Back...so wonderfull...genuine, real, he is cute, funny, wise...just a perfect scene...just under 3 minutes, and it is better then all the hours of him in the 3 new ones YouTube - Luke meets Yoda Sometimes, simplicity is the best thing anyone with me?
