      Instead, the movies should have focused on Obi Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn as the protagonists and Anakin Skywalker as a tragic and initially reluctant antagonist, Darth Maul as an important antagonist in his own right, and of course the main antagonist being Palpatine. Qui-Gon Jinn should have lived to nearly the end of the third film. Darth Maul should also have. The Jedi could have had several important victories, to provide us with the vital sense of hope. The birth of Luke and Leia could also have been presented as a beacon of hope at the very end of the third film.

True, but one could also make the case (I guess as an extension of that) that we knew where the story was going. So while the prequels were sort of about the loss of hope or fall from grace the next three were about hope returning and redemption.

So in terms of that it worked out. Not saying they did it well in the prequels but just saying the themes are fine.
