It's almost ironic that I said this just yesterday afternoon. Because last night I was talking with a friend online that says he knows an ex-LFL employee that still has contacts within the company. He went on to tell me some things that frankly ruined my day...or maybe not. So, I'm calling this a rumor, but you may want to consider it a spoiler warning:
What one thing would make me turn my back on SW...

Luke being the villian. Sorry, I hated Dark Empire. Luke is the model of what a good guy is supposed to be. He faced the temptation of evil and rejected it. He passed where his father failed. It's what brought his father back from the dark side. To disregard that is just bad story telling. Sorry, LFL, if that is your plan going forward, I'm out. I didn't mind the other stuff...focus on H&L's kids, Ian McDiaramid (-sp) in it, and Han dying. I say "rumor" because to me these bits of info sound like they are using the Dark Empire story idea, set it 25 years later, and add some other stuff. I call it semi believable because GL said he liked Dark Empire and this could have come from Arndt's script based on GL's ideas.
I'm hoping beyond hope that this info is all false, but my friend apparently believes it 100%.
So, perhaps I will be able to pursue those other interests sooner than I thought.
