First "The Phantom Menace" a name so bad people actually thought it was a joke or a trick to stop bootleggers (a la 'Revenge of the Jedi') -- but no, it was real.
Still what's a name eh?
Well, until the film came out and was utter shite... the name just made it worse.
Episode I: "Dark Beginnings" perhaps would have been better?
Episode II: "The Clone Wars" would have been 1000% better than "Attack of the Clones" -- oh Lord!!! Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!
I know Star Wars was supposed to be an homage of the serials and comics Lucas grew up with (mainly Flash Gordon), but he "cooled" it in the process. (Let's face it Flash Gordon was just crap.) Now he's undoing all the excellent work he did going back to the cheesy names!!!
