I'm not the only one, by the way

Yes, I bitch and complain about Star Wars a lot, making me an uber-geek with a whiny attitude--much like Mark Hammil in the first Star Wars.

But I ain't the only one:

Maybe I’ll put it like this. To be a Star Wars fan, one must possess the ability
to see a million different failures and downfalls, and then somehow assemble
them into a greater picture of perfection. Every true Star Wars fan is a Luke
Skywalker, looking at his twisted, evil father, and somehow seeing good.

This is from a MUST-READ article entitled "The Complex and Terrifying Reality of Star Wars Fandom" by Andrey Summers.
