Ignor him, Ztakler... Those Ewoks wer enslaved, and had technological actual bombs strapped to them.

Huge Ewok home turf bonus+time they spent preparing (all those traps)+Chewie stealing enemy vehicle(and being the only good driver)+Han Solo+Luke(as Vader said, even the ability to destroy a planet is nothing when placed next to the role of the Force. For Force's sake, the Prophecy was almost fufilled here! And Luke is the son of the Chosen One, and Vader wasn't there unless he was offscreen like the Ewok Bombers)+A rebel strike force armed with guns most people seem to ignore= MAJOR PWNAGE GO WICKETT! And shame, all you GL haters! Really now!

Rather like the Gungans in Episode I...

The Ewok concept was totally stupid, IMO. Maybe a meter taller would have been acceptable, but noo...

That seems like pretty baseless hatred, there.

I realize some of you think Star Wars shouldn't have been so 'cute' but, well, suck it up, because this is what Star Wars IS, and you are fans if you're on this forum. George Lucas wasn't trying to follow canon, or, for that matter, hardcore fan expectations, he was SHAPING them.

I hate Ewoks, but being A Star Wars fan I love them at the same time like I love the Gungans. But I still don't understnad why didn't the Empire own the Ewoks completely, where were the AT-AT's? Or the Tie Bombers/Fighters, sure there are trees but its not Kashyykk! They can still fly around and bomb the villages!!!

The thing is, that ewok battle is the summation and climax of the entire saga... and the fact that the ewoks won is the point of the entire theme of the saga: That technology has all the obvious advantages, but when it comes right down to it, the drive, determination, and spirit of living, breathing people will overcome those cold advantages.

That was one of the original concepts (except the ewoks were wookiees) when Star Wars was still on the drawing board. I know they technically aren't human, but the theme is about the power of the "human spirit."

Now, from a more technical standpoint, the ewok victory completely fits. Typically, people fighting for their homes and for their very freedom will have a spirit that is unmatched by any technilogical power... Although, to be fair, I probably wouldn't feel too comfortable saying that to someone from Alderaan.
