I raw, gritty way in which the OT was made. Unfortunately because of huge leaps in technology movies are not 'made' anymore, they are designed. I remember Lucas once said that he would have loved to have had the effects of today back then but he didn't and the movie was better for it. Hand built sets, painted backdrops are what made the OT.
I wouldn't say Disney are directly responsible for the sequels but they had a hand in it. Its a cash cow to them., they are a business and they don't care who they upset or what they destroy. Abrams and Johnson have both proved to be terrible film makes, but that's just my own opinion. Even now after more viewings, the Leia scene makes me wince.
