No worries and none taken.

You hit the nail on the head about why I don't like Legacy too.

Legacy took everything Skywalker accomplished, crumpled it up, threw it in a trash can, and then said, "Meh... Ultimately didn't matter." So... Legacy kind of kills Star Wars for me.

As for Ben's story... I might follow it for a short time and *maybe* it will spark something in me... But... I dunno... I'm not a kid anymore. It is hard to relate to him for me.

This is actually very simple, Walsh doesn't like it cause it starts with the Sith overthrowing the Emperor and destorying the Jedi and ruling the Galaxy, undoing Luke's work. Which I get, but to me what destroys Luke's Legacy is the fact that a jedi of the OLD Republic running things and all of Luke's students dead.

Also Legacy was set up like OT but lost it's way after it dropped the Princess.

Seeing as FOTJ entertains the notion of eternal war between Jedi and Sith, it is hard to say that Luke's work was undone by Legacy if Luke himself posits the notion that the Jedi's work is never done. Besides, Luke's work wasn't undone. The end of Palpatine's empire still remains the most significant event in galactic history and the singular moment in Star Wars history that has the greatest cosmological significance. One Sith, Lost Tribe, or whoever. The end of the Banite line of Sith by the Skywalkers single-handed redeems the galaxy and even the Force.

You don't get much bigger than that. And you can't particularly undo that moment's importance. I'll ignore the ways in which I actually believe that Legacy shows just how much Luke's actions have saved the galaxy over and over again. But needless to say, the effect does not simply end with the man. I think that Luke's actions continually provide the galaxy with the model and sometimes the direct means to its salvation and protection.
