^ - ok, that was just cruel. I was just kidding about the comment above.
I too hate seeing Lucas mess around with stuff. It's like colorizing the old black and white t.v./movies. It's almost like re-writing history. Why can't you leave well enough alone? Unless he thinks that there is new money generated?
:D For a second, I thought you were serious about the Gungans. It makes me want to start a joke thread on changes in the new BluRay presentations whereby we can all brainstorm to come up with changes we would definitely not want to see. (James Earl Jones has been replaced by Chris Rock as the voice of Darth Vader!?!? :p)
To be fair to Lucas, I can understand from an artist's perspective why tinkering would be tempting. It can be very hard to let go and let the final product stand on its own. There is always something you feel you could improve through subsequent revision. Thinking of all the advances in special effects since 1977, I can understand why Lucas would be tempted to revisit scenes he wasn't 100% happy with due to limitations of filmography at the time.
I admit that some of the changes do make me scratch my head and wonder what he was thinking, though.
