Hmm for some things yes, but other things no. I actually preferred the model ships as the texture looked more real in the older films. However for the city landscapes it did look impressive.
I totally agree, and I think one of the few good things about Ep. I was that he tried to keep to the models more, but let himself get carried awaqy in the later movies
The Star Destroyers and all the other ships in the old movies looked much more real then the CGI generated ships in the new movies. Also, I think they used a CGI 'touching up' affect on most of the clones, Vader *after he got in the armor* and such that makes most all of them look sorta fake to me, even though much of the time it really is a guy in a suit
