I may be, I thought you meant you liked episode 1 (1999) and episodes 2 (2002) and 3 (2005) were disappointing
Besides I have a problem with statements that claim most people do this or that. If I saw that on a test, I would mark it wrong because statements like that are usually wrong.
When a big movie like star wars gets bad reviews it becomes somewhat common pop culture knowledge
here are the ratings from the major sites for the 2nd star wars trilogy
episode 1, RT 57%, Meta 51, Imdb 6.5
episode 2, RT 67%, Meta 53, Imdb 6.7
episode 3, RT 80%, Meta 68, Imdb 7.7
episode 1 scores the lowest on all 3
