Yes, Lucasfilm was advertising that it would be the last time you would be able to purchase the original trilogy as it was originaly seen in theatres. As video versions go, the flat, hologram boxed set was the best one to get before Lucas had all the remaining store copies sent back and supposedly had them destroyed... or so we were told, who knows what they really did with them.
Mr Heel II, ou should realy watch EMPIRE STRIKES BACK as not only was it the best film out of the six, but also quite a good film on it own. I'd so so far as to say it's one of the best films ever made.
I think any major storyline is probably game. In some cases, they are better because they don't have the weight of comic continuity to them. The Red Hood film was a LOT better than the comic, mainly due to the lack of Superboy's Magic punching BS.
