Underworld happenings? Or perhaps with the early days of the Rebel Alliance?

So...ya, the only one you could say that for is Luke and he would have died had he not been sucked into another vent.
And what about Darth Maul?

"Maul was sent to Naboo, where he fought Jinn and his apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Though he killed the Jedi Master, Maul underestimated Kenobiís skill and was severed in half at the waist by the Padawan... Flinching in shock and pain, Maul fell backwards into the shaft in silence, his two halves separating ... he reached out with the Force and grabbed an air vent. Maul went down the reactor shaft and landed in water. Maul was then dumped into a container which was taken to Lotho Minor, where he was able to get out.[31] He also escaped Sidious' anger for his failure. Maul was able to use the Force[source?] to acquire a six-legged arachnid-like cybernetic apparatus to replace his lost lower body, and stayed in the caves of the planet. For twelve years, Maul's memories were lost and he was in a state of near-madness, eating only the small animals that came to the cave" -wookiepedia

Maybe the plot of the game will be like KOTOR again. You play along happily with your character, then midway your character regains his memory (which he lost due to the shock of his wounds) and discovers he's actually MACE WINDU.

EDIT: Also Anakin fell in Coruscant in EP II, but landed in a vehicle.

EDIT: Oh and one more, Gandalf

Darth Maul sustained himself with his anger. Note how he says in the last episode of the Mando arc "I used your training master." Mace Windu is a Jedi and wouldn't do that. Not to mention that the ROTS novel specifically states that his body was lifeless upon being hurled out of the window by Sidious' Force Lightning.

Anakin used the Force to guide himself to Zam Wessel's vehicle.

Gandalf was pretty much riding the Balrog down into the waters in the deepest dungeons of Moria. Not to mention that he was ALIVE for that ordeal. Mace Windu was dead.

I mean more of, you taking control of a character within the Rebellion, not be a Jedi or anything just a regular freedom fighter. I mean in TFU you never really are in the Rebellion so to speak, you are just kinda loosely tied to it.

True but it depends what they are making to be honest. They can pick something totaly diferent with the all whole that we know as background scenario. It can be a clean slate on that view.

Do you not see the connection?

Edit:

Although since they made to KOTOR era as similar to the ep 3-4 era as they could, jedi gone/ exact same robes and ships, maybe it won't completly suck

Has this been confirmed in any way shape or form other then rumors?

Not sure what rumors you're talking about there.

The Obsidian CEO himself already "confirmed" that they pitched LucasArts on a new Star Wars RPG.

It's confirmed that it's "in the works" as in; they're working on getting the development started once Disney (hopefully) approves.
I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest, honestly.

It's the honest ones you want to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they're gonna do something incredibly stupid.
