Does anybody else think Savage Opress sounds like a girl's name?

We don't need him anywhere closer than he already is to this game. Seriously. Keep him away from it.
Wow, show some respect. If it wasn't for him this game wouldn't even exist. His IP, therefore he and Star Wars are connected.
A heart of darkness and soul of light can never truly co-exist.

Just because you think a person has done a poor job doesn't mean you disrespect them as a person. I respect Gene Roddenberry for creating Star Trek, but between the original series and TNG he became surrounded by people who thought he could do no wrong, and the studio gave him enormous latitude to do whatever he wanted. The first two seasons of TNG are way, way, way worse because of it.

This is pretty much the same thing as the prequel trilogies: Lucas did his best work when he was forced to work with others, had oversight to cull his worst ideas, and needed to work with a team. Between RotJ and TPM, though, he bought into his own press, and the studio let him do whatever he wanted. As a result, the quality of the prequel films is notably lower, as it usually is when a director is also the writer and gets free reign to do whatever he wants.
"Vengeance is mine," quoth Alvis! Then he shot that guy right in the friggin' face!

Let me rework your question.

Wouldnt it be cool, that the guys who produced the game trailers go help George Lucas make a real Star Wars film?
Trevise Jedi Shadow
Karkus Tritonos, Sith Marauder
Hanunaki ; assassin
