What if George Lucas had got his way with Star Wars?

One of things I discovered later in life is how much of a joke the cast thought the movie was during the filming of Episode IV. Everyone thought it flop, and there was so much that went wrong. The movie's success was in ways a happy accident, and I think we do have to commend George Lucas on the strength of his vision making the films what they were. (Even if his dialog is so often terrible.)
