That said I doubt it would strike me that hard, not really being very invested in Star Wars (much as I loved the originals as a kid and I am sure I'll sit down and enjoy them again some time in the future).
I don't know if I'm all that invested - I just think there's a way to do it and a way not to do it.

Lucas has all but ruined it - and now that it's J.J. Abrams in charge - there's no way it will ever be appealing again.
P.S: I do believe that comic and more serious approaches are quite a bit possible and can even turn Great. Yes the Dark Knight (the comic) is a good example but the Watchmen is even better, and the Sandman (if you disregard the first 8 issues) might even be up your alley as it focuses on characters and interpersonal drama of very real people and issues.
I did like Watchmen - even if I think a lot of it is silly. Dark Knight the movie was not good - but I know I'm not representing the norm with that opinion. I liked Batman Begins a lot, though, so go figure

I meant it in the sense that he offended you sensibilities enough to turn you off. Nothing more than that
It's not quite how I'd put it myself - but it's no big deal.
