George [Lucas]’s willingness to freely evoke, to riff and cobble together, lives on his later films, most notably, to me, in the design of General Grievous, which joins Kali, the goddess of Harryhausen, an evil grasshopper, and a mechanized skeleton, with a name that is, again, just brilliant. Or in Darth Maul, perhaps the most memroable character in the second trilogy.
