    This is very unbecoming and beneath an author of Brin's caliber.

    I have read and deeply enjoyed Brin's Uplift novels. He is an extremely talented author. I thought this rant of a critique on Lucas's Star Wars franchise came off as bitter and jealous and even peevishly whiney at times. You are far too gifted of an author to stoop to taking pot shots at another because of his success with pop culture, David. All this does is reflect poorly on you. You are better than this.

    "Cliche-ridden"? Really?!?

    Star Wars MADE several cliches.
    "These aren't the droids you're looking for."
    "I've got a bad feeling about this."
    "May the Force be with you."
    etc.
