What should Episode III be titled?

Star Wars Episode III - "??????????"

So what should it be? Something like "The Rise of the Empire", "The Fall of the Jedi"?

Ideas?

First part of trilogy:
ARTICLE, ADJECTIVE, NOUN

A New Hope
The Phantom Menace

Second part of trilogy:
CONVEY ACTION (STRIKING, ATTACKING)

The Empire Strikes Back
Attack of the Clones

Third part of trilogy:
VERB, PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE WITH JEDI

Fall of the Jedi?
Return of the Jedi


just a theory...

Whatever the title, it should convey something very dark indeed since the next episode is entitled A New Hope. The title of the third and the fourth movies should be totally opposite, and I would like to see Episode 3's title convey the total lack of hope the universe has with the rise of the Dark Empire.

I doubt Lucas will choose a title we could predict. Who would have predicted Attack of the Clones?

Nobody... especially since the clones didn't attack... they defended/rescued.

Revenge of the Sith. I think that title would be awesome. Knowing that Revenge of the Jedi was supposed to be the original title of Return of the Jedi.

My first thought was also "The Rise of the Empire" or "The Fall of the Republic" or "The Fall of the Jedi."

But now it seems too logical considering Lucas settled on "The Phantom Menace" and "Attack of the Clones." As GuessWho pointed out, the Clones didn't attack anyone, so it was a misleading title.

He might as well just call it: Episode III: The Plot Thickens

I like 'Rise of the Sith.' It's a nice parallel to 'Return of the Jedi,' and even if I didn't know anything about Star Wars, the word 'sith' just sounds ominous.

Knowing Lucas he'll pick something odd like 'Ascension of the Sith' or 'Fall of the Council'

I think a pretty kick ass title would be
Star Wars: Episode III Return of the Sith
because in TPM Mace says," I do not think the sith could return without us knowing." And, it would fit pretty good with "Return of the Jedi."

Yes, because it sounded hokey...

My objection to Star Wars: The Clone Wars is semantics, the overly repetitive use of "wars" - not the concept

The Clones don't Attack?

Maybe from the Jedi's point of view its defence, but the only reason that battle takes place is because Palpatine wants the clones to Attack, destroying the separatist droid army. That’s why he has Dooku/Tyrannus form the separatist movement in the first place - to destroy the only threat to his eventual Empire - the droid armies of the trade federation (the same federation he used to become chancellor in EP 1)

the 'Attack of the Clones' is a pivotal scene in the saga, as the republic has no choice but to accept the clone army, while the Jedi fight with the clones, helping to wipe out what would be the only defence against the Empire.

Throw in the Death Star revelation, and you're left with a great political ploy that leads to the birth of the Empire.

As for the title being ‘misleading’, it clearly isn’t. I was also expecting the clones to attack the Jedi (I avoided all spoilers), but in hindsight that wouldn’t have been nearly as cool as what actually happens - the Jedi fighting alongside the very army that will destroy them in the next film.
