Episode I in 3D was every bit as bad, but the podrace looked really cool.
Anyway, out of the original trilogy, I think Star Wars was a great movie. It's a lighthearted space fantasy movie where you don't really have to think too much. It's a hell of a ride. Empire then ups the darkness and develops the characters further and improves upon the original's special effects. Jedi continues to improve the effects, but the story feels weaker this time around and you can already see merchandizing starting to take over the creative process with the painfully obvious "cute" factor in the Ewoks, as well as having Jabba the Hutt be a giant slug creature rather than just a really fat dude as he was to have been shown in the original Star Wars (on the 2004 bonus features DVD, there's a shot from the set of the scene with Han and Jabba in the original that was cut and later reinstated for the Special Edition with a CGI slug-Jabba. He is portrayed simply by a fat guy).
The prequels... Episode I is just many different kinds of terrible. Episode II is bearable, but the love story is horribly written and worse yet made one of the main focuses of the film. Hayden Christensen's performance is just jaw-droppingly bad. Episode III is pretty passable though, falling just a little below Jedi in my opinion.
