Well... I can only respond to these critics with that line from FRIENDS:

"You could not be any more wrong. You could try, but you would not be successful."

Those 'Empire' reviews are spot on!

I don't think these critics really get "Star Wars" or fantasy films. One seemed to think appealing to younger audiences was a bad thing.
I might agree that C3PO was annoying in "Empire" (though he was made fun again in ROTJ) and the Han-Leia-Luke triangle was too neatly resolved (though really it only existed in the first Star Wars film. Even if Luke weren't Leia's brother, his real love was the Force in much the way a priest is "married" to the church.)
The most common criticism of ROTJ I can recall is that it was cartoonish, with so many alien creatures and monsters. I agreed at the time but several Star Wars films later, I find that really is part of the Star Wars style, too. It's just that George Lucas didn't have the technology to accomplish it in the first film and only touched on it in the second (Think of the "dinosaur" on the asteroid or Yoda who, face it, was a puppet.)
