I do not mind the amount of CGI that George Lucas uses or the stuff that has been re-edited into episodes 4-6 (well apart from the scene with Han and Greedo)

Yeah, actually, I think you have a point. The fact that GL is a special FX whore, must have had something to do with it. I mean, come on. Every clone trooper in the new trilogy was digital. Every one. They had zero armor made for the films. Someone needs to punch that man in the throat.
I think that is a bit harsh though. Sometimes I think it is a little wasteful to make so much armour to get so little use out of it.
the effects in LotR r entirely different. and if you recall they filmed in new zealand, not a sound studio lined with green plastic. in space battles i say the more effects the better...but when shooting a scene with people and places, i think you have to be real...or mostly real.
i was watching the old trilogy this weekend and, yeah alot of the effects r dated but it did not distract me from the story. what did distract me was a beak on the sarlacc. (btw still annoyed with fetts rediculous demise)
special effects enhance a movie but should never be asked to carry it. LotR had a strong cast and a visionary director...sadly the same cannot be said for the new trilogy. in an odd sidenote, ive heard lucas wanted others to direct- ron howard and speilberg but they would not.
