Yes it does, because if the devs don't attempt to hold some of the universe's glue together, you stop having a Star Wars game and just start having a random sci fi clownfest.

It's very annoying when a game (or movie, or series, or book, ...) is crippled by overly-draconian adherence to preexisting lore, same as when people are overly-conservative IRL and hold back societal progress and evolution.

But it's also very annoying when an intellectual property becomes so arbitrary and diluted that you can't even recognize it any more.

There's a balancing act to allowing some expansion/modification of preexisting precedents, and not doing it so extremely or so quickly that it stops feeling like that same fictional environment.

The best fictional universes maintain some degree of focus and control over what the rules of their universe are, what fits and what doesn't, and this gives each successful fiction universe its particular flavor and immediately-identifiable look, feel, story, style, etc.
