I sincerely haven't watched the first three movies. I like how Star Wars deals with "Passion/Evil/Sith" and Jedi "Unselfish,Guardians, protectors" it really taps into the whole Good vs Evil thing. With "Sith" supposed be the evil guys and Jedi the good guys. Being a bad guy though can have major benefits in being able to do what you want. I'd say yes I a massive Star Wars, fan I don't read the novels.
