Would we like a gory star wars?

When we look at star wars we usually see a very child-friendly galaxy. The fights are not nearly as violent as they could be, the injuries are not shown upclose and are almost always made by energy weapons that cauterize the wounds instantly. So all in all star wars is a very child-friendly franchise.

But what would happen to the fanbase if one or more filmmaker made another kind of star wars story like the ones described in the books or like the ones described in the backgrounds of the games.

A sith lord gets really angry so he blasts his enemy with a force wave so powerfull that it ripps his victims skin of his face and his limps from his body. Or another scenario when we actually gets to see force speed used combat like its is portrayed in the games or books where the jedi and sith are blurs of speed moving so fast that the grunt cant even react to them.

If this came into play on the big screen it would defenitly change the feeling of the star wars films forever. But do we want that? Personally i would like to see it at least one time simply because it would be fun to see it.
What do you guys think?

No. I would not play something like that.

Republic Commando is as close as we'll ever get to that I'm afraid.

I notice they pilfered that game's theme for KotFE chapter XIV too.

Absolutely not.

I like watching and playing Star Wars partly because I know, no matter how violent it gets, I'm *not* going to see blood and guts flying around the screen. Little patches of blood when somebody scrapes their head or hand or whatever - Rogue One comes to mind - sure, that's fine. I don't care about that. But actual gore? No way.

I've played other games where the player had control over whether or not there was gore, and they're ok. Usually the baddie just turns into what looks like a grease spot on the floor after its dead, though. If they implemented this option in this game with the affects that you described, I think some people would like it for a while, but I feel it would get old fast, too. Sure, the first few times you send a head soaring across the battlefield, it's funny. But after a while it just becomes "oh, hey, did it again. Yay, me". Slow motion kill scenes would be cool, if they have them be a rare trigger.

I wouldn't want more gore. Absolutely not.

But a more adult and sexualized Star Wars...absolutely.

Noting in this is child friendly

No thanks.

Star Wars products that include more mature storytelling, sure - especially including some more complex, adult themes. There's room in the IP for that alongside the more kid-friendly fare (which should always continue as well, Star Wars should be a property that always has plenty of welcoming options for kids).

But ramping up the gore? No, there are plenty of Science Fiction and Fantasy properties that already have that covered.

Nope, to see gore all you have to do is watch the news. I prefer it the way it is.
Although the books are considerably "darker" than the games. If they ever turned the Bane series into a movie - it might be a bit bloody. I just don't want to see SW turn into Excalibur.

I'd say yes, if you do something horrible then let it show! Doesn't have to be extreme but it's nonexistent in this game. But it is 16 rated so heh, it's fine I guess. I'm always wanting the opposite of the "masses".
