That seems to have gone away and now its more clone wars stuff and time travel. But who really knows I guess.

I'd always wanted to see a show either about a Jedi living in exile and/or hiding from the empire. Or a show that focuses on a group of troopers that hunts the remaining Jedi.
Pay no attention to the time travel rumor... it's just someone grafting the idea behind the Abrams Star Trek franchise onto Star Wars given George's continued tinkering with the OT and disregard for common sense (the "Greedo was always supposed to fire first" baloney) or fans' love of the films despite actual technical limitations & flaws from back in the day. A rumor meant to rile up fans, nothing more.

It's always kinda funny when people suggest they wanna see Luke growing up between Episode III and Episode IV. Did nobody WATCH Episode IV? Luke's bored outta his mind and can't wait to get off Tatooine because NOTHING HAPPENED TO HIM while growing up. He had 'normal' (for Tatooine) childhood adventures, that's about it. Racing skyhoppers with his buddies, bullseyeing womp rats, MAYBE fending off a Tusken raid (which would involve him & his uncle & maybe other farmers, wherever the raid was, hiding out and shooting at the Tuskens until they were driven off, no Siege of Helm's Deep close-quarters action), maybe getting lost when he was little and being rescued by Ben Kenobi and not knowing why Uncle Owen's yelling at Ben for saving him, getting shot down by Camie at the Anchorhead Middle School Spring Fling, then getting a wedgie from Fixer for daring to ask Camie out.

Dull. No real Imperial presence. No real talk of the Rebel Alliance. No space battles. No Jedi action. No run-ins with Han Solo. No Mos Eisley. No fun droids like R2 and 3PO. No other planets besides Tatooine--and haven't we seen ENOUGH of the twin-sun desert world?

Luke and his uncle Owen go to Mos Eisley to buy a new moisture evaporator for their moisture farm. Luke cleans their house because there is sand all over the place. Uncle Owen sells some of whatever he is farming to some Jawas.

Dont forget shooting womp rats in beggars canyon, they could flesh that out into a dreadful quater of the movie circa Batha's Eve Pod Race.

The Force Unleashed covered the (canon)founding of the rebellion, etc.

And not in a really great way, though... a smidge of TFU's story involved in the founding would've been more than enough. Not Galen bringing it all together (for whatever reason) and then sacrificing himself to save all the leaders (on the Death Star no less!), with the Rebels using his family crest as their symbol.
