Nuff said. Thrawn isn't epic enough, Dark Empire's ressurection of Palpatine is lame. Seeing as how Disney handled the whole alien invasion thing in Avenegrs I think this would make it epic.

or they could you know actual do something original instead of taking someone else's stories and butchering them to make a movie

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

I'd actually would be interested in seeing them jump to the Legacy of the Force book series. It would put the actors in the right age group for their roles in the books and would welcome in a whole new era of actors to play those characters for years to come. I'd love to see a new set of actors come in and portray the Solo Twins and all the rest! That in MY mind would make for great movies for years to come.

The Vong butcher their story well enough on their own.

I heard somewhere that the next trilogy will be what George Lucas had originally written. It will be completly original. Nothing that has already been seen.

I'm hoping that when Lucas approved all the EU books, he made sure to keep his original ideas for Ep 7-12 intact. I'm thinking that we'll see something in the midst or right after everything that has been written, and hope that the new movies will properly take the EU into account. Otherwise, Disney and (yet again) Lucas will have a lot of P-O'ed fans.

Lucas didn't approve EU. In fact, there's a quote on Wookieepedia in which he says something to the effect of, "Howard goes a bit overboard." as well as how he doesn't recognize the EU as part of his universe.

Totally agreed. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...PowerNullifier

And the instances of ridiculously powerful Force effects diminished its value. It's a never-ending chain of Power Creep, which is not compelling or mildly interesting.

On the other hand, the effects of Power as played out in KotOR 2 was quite interesting. The intense power at Malacor V was an abomination against the nature of the universe, and the objective (story-wise, not mechanic-wise) was to settle the echoes rather than simply get stronger and beat up the evil dudes. It's a story about humanity and our emotions, and what it means to be at peace with the Force. That makes the Force compelling rather than a http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...tyPlusOneSword

Once again, shouldn't be EP7 of a completed story. Do an Old Republic story trilogy, or a handful of Stand Alone features. Because frankly, I still wanna see a story about the first Mandalore, the one that unified the clans. That would be an epic tale. Not clone Sid. Not Clone Vader. Not the Vong or Luke's drug-sucking Grandson. Mandalore the First, ladies and gentlebeings. That's what we need.
