I agree that the romance was awkward at times and I really didn't like the alien villains from Phantom or Clones, but I did enjoy finally seeing a lot of things come together and connect to the original trilogy - the explanation of the stormtroopers, Boba Fett, the Death Star plans, the Imperial Star Destroyers. I think that's one of the reasons I'm going to like Sith much, much more, is because we're bound to see a lot of connections that lead right into ANH. From the semi-spoilers I've heard about Sith, there are a lot of things that finally complete the puzzle and connect these two trilogies.
