I like it a lot. I think it follows the same pattern of the other titles pretty closely. A NEW HOPE and THE PHANTOM MENACE are both statements with no real working verbs ... at least not in this context. THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and ATTACK OF THE CLONES both say what is happening in this particular chapter AND both of them have forceful verbs (strike and attack).
My first thought was that it didn't really sit well with me. But, you know, I don't think anything would have really been perfect. 21 years ago, I probably would have thought that THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK was a stupid title (especially concidering that I was 4). I mean really ... no shit the empire is striking back, they got their asses kicked in the first film (that was sarcasm).
I would say that Ep. 3 would be called FALL OF THE REPUBLIC, but that's WAY too obvious.
