The 'old' starwars had what you called storyline. This was Lucas in his prime, doing his best work.(given the time and age). The old movie have lore and heroic/epic storyline. What the new one have is lights, action, and loud noises. This is all too common place in movies these days. They lack the indept story, just quick flashes. Mediocre at best story line, then big finish. Boom! Actually after saying that; you could say that the new Star Wars is like bad sex, really.

The old one. As the world evolves, the minds of the creatures upon it crumble and turn to ash. The new ones are pieces of crap, but they're no shorter, unfortunately. So, no, you can't have to 3 hours of your life Episode II discarded. ;-; I'm sorry. At least you got your money's worth-wait-no you didn't... My apologies, once more.
I still love the work of the beardy one. Indiana Jones needs more recognization. >>

If you picked anything other than the original, you cannot be a true fan of the series. If you judge the two trilogies by their effects, then you're an idiot. Movies are good because of the story and acting, not because of the special effects. The original trilogy is on a whole different level from the new three. They were all perfect. The new three are not even close. Though, of course, I liked them all, they all have large flaws. Episode I looked like a little kids movie, with annoying jokes and childish dialogue, though Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon) acting was as up to par as usual. Episode II was the worst. It was a bunch of different plots thrown together in a bad way. The romance between Anakin and Padame was horrible, the dialogue between the two was terribly cliche. I did like all of the clues that showed what was going to happen, though, and the fight at the end was good. Episode III is by far the best of the new three. But its major flaw is that in this move Lucas seems to overdo it with the computer graphics. Many of hte places he overdoes the special effects, but the dialogue and acting are poor. But, this one may be even better than the originals if you only take in the movie from where the Jedi are killed off to the end fight, which was, in my opinion, the best duel in any of the movies. Plus, the very end to this movie was the best in any of the movies, easily. But I am afraid that Lucas was doomed from the beginning. He could never outdo his work in the 70's and 80's. But I've grown up on Star Wars and, as a whole, its one of the best movie sagas ever made.
