5: Lightsaber Combat
4: Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan
3: Clone Wars and Rebels
You know what I love as much as Star Wars? Cartoons! Back in 2003, Cartoon Network aired an animated series that would bridge Episode 2 to Episode 3. It was silly at times, dark at others, and more often than not just a bad ass continuation. It became so popular that it was continued, now as a CGI anthology series. Time moved forward, and a year after its final season an sequel series was made to bridge Episodes 3 and 4 in the form of Star Wars Rebels. These were perfect for the franchise as the entire universe was full of characters and planets that can be explored. It is practically like having a Star Wars movie on a weekly basis!
2: The Villains
Darth Vader is without a doubt one of the best villains in cinema history. That being said think of all the villains that came out during the Prequels. Darth Maul might not have had a long film life, but when you actually take the time to find the other appearances through the Clone Wars, Novels, and Comics, he is shown to be something resembling a devil that truly never dies. Count Dooku is the best personification of Separatist; He was once a Jedi, but the moment he realized what could be gained through the dark side, he creates the ultimate army, gathering a few apprentices along the way(Also having him played by Christopher Lee is also a plus)! Then we get to what I consider one of the coolest characters in the prequels, General Grievous. When he first showed up in the Clone Wars series you see him kill Jedi with ease and take their lightsabers; SOMETHING WE THOUGHT AS PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A NON-FORCE USER! The villains may not match up to Darth Vader, but they still are evil as they are bad ass.
