I think TMI has helped as well, in a similar way to Revenge of the Sith softening the hate for Phantom Menace. Partly because it justifies some of the plot developments of EMI by treating them as cannon without revisiting them (a bit like getting rid of Jar Jar Binks but having a cameo at the end of the third film). That sentence doesn't make much sense but hopefully you see what I mean.

Also, TMI took some of the pressure off EMI being the last in the series, and therefore some kind of statement or farewell of the saga.
