On IMDb.com they list a few Lucas' in the cast-listing (including George). Anyway, here ya go...

Anyway, I caught it last Thursday and was slightly disappointed. Only slightly because my expectations were low to begin with. I've learned my lesson from Episodes I & II... but it was
better than Episodes I & II, so that's nice.
Most people have already mentioned what I will, but dammit - I like the sound of my fingers tappin' on the keyboard. So anyway, Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen did poor jobs acting (like they've done in the previous Star Wars movie[s]). I haven't seen any of Christensen's other movies, but Portman is usually pretty good.
The dialog was pretty bad for the most part - especially in the scenes that supposedly dealt with romance. A lot of lines seemed forced and unnatural.
Anyway, Ewan McGregor did a great job as Obi Wan Kenobi. Ian McDiarmid also did a good job reprisin' his role as the Emperor (he also played him in Return of the Jedi).
R2D2 was a lot more useful in these new movies... I kind of wish a lot of his stuff was toned down a bit... but that's just being nit-picky.
Overall it was pretty solid... disappointing to a degree, but solid. It was cool to see everything put together (even if I don't like how some of it was).
