I dunno... whenever I think of a "mature" Jar Jar, I hear a cross between Yoda and the Priest from "The Princess Bride":
"Meesa feah leads to anguh. Meesa anguh leads to hate. Meesa hate leads to the Dawk Side. That's why meesa Light Jedi!"
Personally, I'm with millions of other SW fans, I hate Jar Jar. But, kids love 'im, and they're all Lucas really cares about - besides telling the story the way he wants it told.
Of course, if he were a Jedi, we could always get lucky and see him slice his own face off when he ignites his lightsaber while into the emitter.
Jar Jar dead!
