If by "Star Wars" you mean 'the prequels' the answer is 'no'. It wasn't what viewers expected. While the dialogue needed some serious revision, the visual aspect of the films seemed to make up for the loss. By the end of the third movie, it seemed like George Lucas had finally broken though with his story telling and delivered a second half of Episode 3 that was just short of stellar.
So, could they have been better? Sure. BUT, to call them horrible is just a bit much.
