According to my good buddy Lionel Bohbot over at 411mania.com/movies (read me there!), the working title for Ep. III is Rise Of The Empire. That's more like it, Georgie. Also, Anakin finally takes the Dark Side plunge after slicing up Mace Windu. See, I had Boba Fett pegged as Windu's eventual assasin, owing to him beheading his father and all.
I had assumed it would be Anakin. Samuel L. Jackson has alwasy said that he knew his character has to apparently die in EpIII and he didn't want to go out like a punk. That's how I decided it has to be Anakin that does him in. Plus, it gives Obi-Wan some more reason to feud with his padawan (besides the whole going to the dark side thing).
It will be interesting to see tho, me being a big fan and all.
There's also an interesting thread going over at the Force.com where someone has posted all the "facts" that are known about EpIII from various interviews of stars, Lucas, Rick McCallum (producer), etc. They have both spoiler and non-spoiler versions.

And he was EVERYWHERE...even in the skit before the theme. A good job, though, even if too many skits relied on his normal tough guy image. One of the better shows of the season, though nothing special.
