I know it was part of Lucas' idea...But I mean in some episodes he would meet 2 to 3 famous figures. It was a little overkill.
I don't understand why he couldn't have just made a Young Indy that would've been like the Harrison movies. He could've made a brand new character if edutainment was more important than telling Indy's story, because often times in the Chronicles, it does seem the event or figure Indy is meeting takes precedence over HIS story as a character.
