Old man yells, "get off my lawn"!
Seriously dude you're not that old.
Even you acknowledge these films were heavily commercialized back then - it sounds like we're about the same age - just as they are heavily commercialized now.
In my opinion nothing has changed really... the new stories are the same as the old ones just redone.
I acknowledge it isn't a logical turn but an emotional one. But isn't that what "liking" or "disliking" art is all about?
Why start to dislike something you used to like, just because there is now more of it. That does not make sense to me.

Was a New Hope really any better,
Mark Hamils acting was awful, the script was awful, the fight between Vader and Obi Wan was awful and if you really think about it the only really amazing thing about that movie was how it introduced us to the Star Wars universe.
