Let’s say, hypothetically, that George Lucas did direct Episode IX and it was awesome, exactly what the fans wanted. There’s a good chance he would still go back and ruin it by adding stuff a few years down the road. Lucas can’t stop tinkering with his movies after they are done. Let us not forget the amorphous blob that is Jabba The Hutt in the 1997 Special Edition of A New Hope. It’s not just the classic trilogy either, he’s been messing with the prequels since they were still in theaters.
