Of course, the moment a list such as this is published, the disgreements begin. And why should this one be any different.<br /><br />GEORGE LUCAS, GREATEST SCI-FI PIONEER??!!!<br /><br />Marketeer, undoubtably. But let's face it, the man's never had an original creative thought in his life.<br /><br />His only major talent (which admittedly he's very good at) is - ahem - 'borrowing' other people's ideas, and then reheating, rehashing and reselling them to the public, with great success.<br /><br />I'm going to stop there, because I've learnt from other message boards that the pro-Lucas/anti-Lucas argument has no end. If anyone on this forum is an admirer of the man, that's cool. Don't try to convert me, and I won't try to convert you.

Ha ha Fenris, I was about to go into rant mode myself then scrolled down and saw your message, so you've spared me the trouble! Ta!<br /><br />That aside, I love the 'Quote' and 'Did you know?' on the SFX page.
