I always thought that Beru should always have been Anakin's actual sister, with an actual bitter relationship between Anakin and what he saw as her less than worthy husband Owen.My buddy likes to point out that there's a bit of a plot hole between the prequels and originals - made worse with all the expanded material (both original multimedia and CGI) - Owen & Beru.
Of course a lot of that is due to the films themselves since somehow Vader never thought to go check the house he knew his stepsiblings were staying for Obi-Wan.
His fix fic is that rather than Asoka, Beru should have been in her place and as a literal lost little sister (Beru Skywalker). Then rather than Rex, Owen should have been a regular soldier and war buddy of Anakin. In both the movies and the shows, this would give someone his own age to bounce off of and given the audience a viewpoint of how everyone else in the galaxy viewed the war outside of the Jedi, politicians, and clones. Eventually he would marry Beru and give Anakin more to lose in the war than just a wife and child. Through their friendship, we could watch Owen's horror at Anakin falling from the friend he used to know before he goes fleeing to Tatooine for refuge.
Then at least we could smile in the episodes when Obi-Wan shows up and drags Anakin and Owen off on a new mission for the war. Because then we would understand the line "He feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damned-fool idealistic crusade like your father did."
He should have sent Thrawn off into the unknown regions and then the sequel trilogy should have replaced Hux with him. (I mean you can still keep Domhnall Gleeson as the actor - paint him blue and I think he'd make a dang fine Thrawn.)
Or they could of just lifted the Thrawn trilogy wholesale and not do what they did with the ST.He should have sent Thrawn off into the unknown regions and then the sequel trilogy should have replaced Hux with him.

CGI which supposedly included giving all the cat people butt holes before being edited out. Imagine the world where Cats was a success and its "art style" became the norm...Only because it tanked at the box office, if it made its money back or worse megabucks. Hollywood would have been flooding the theaters with more movies with that kind of CGI.
The Vong is Islamic? How?CGI which supposedly included giving all the cat people butt holes before being edited out. Imagine the world where Cats was a success and its "art style" became the norm...
Also the Tusken Raider language/alphabet is some kind of warped version of Arabic and Muslim calligraphy in Disney canon.

I don't get it. Disney's Woke Brigade is willing to decry the Vong as "Islamaphobic" but Disney making savage sand assholes literal space muslims isn't? Then again, they have been trying to make them dindus and troons in some novels...
kind of reminiscent of when some people called the Covenant from Halo islamophobic (despite the covenant being more of a hybrid between the Catholic Church and Islam but with aliens). NJO and Halo aren't anti Islam but anti extreme religious fundamentalism to the point of (literal) xenophobia.
The claims typically go like this: a zealous religious society that believes in essentially cutting a bloody swath against the part of the world that doesn't cow-tow to their religious beliefs, all while committing acts of pseudo-terrorism like dropping moons on planets like Serpindal or bombing planets like Ithor into oblivion. It's worth nothing that the timing of the NJO story arc only made these comparisons all the more rampant. as they were coming out just pre and post 9/11.
Disparate effect and semantic sleight of hand. There are no Christian theocracies (not counting the Vatican because you don't have to live there), so any modern criticism of theocracy in general is criticism of the theocracies which actually exist. Second, "anti-Islamic" as a conflation of "this has a negative effect on Islam" and "this is an illegal and deplorable infringement of Muslims' human rights".
I mean ideally sure, but part of the problem is that it had been WAY too long in real life for a straight adaptation of Thrawn. Unless you want them to do that horrible Tarkin youth-a-izing to Mark Hanill for the entire trilogy and we have the problem of Carrie dying before it was finished.Or they could of just lifted the Thrawn trilogy wholesale and not do what they did with the ST.
Besides it was kinda to late to introduce him into the ST since TFA came out in 2015 and Thrawn wasn't re canonized until the 3rd season of rebels in 2016. If they really wanted to add him it would of been in TLJ but then there you would of risked the probably of Johnson using him as another form to subvert our expectations.
Thanks to GoG and Steam we've always had those.In more positive news Jedi Academy is apparently coming out on switch today and episode 1 racer is also getting a rerelease. Hopefully this means we’ll see other titles like the KOTOR games, the first 2 dark forces games, the rogue squadron trilogy, the x wing/tie fighter games, classic battlefront, and republic commando get modern console releases
Finn being a renegade stormtrooper, the riot armor of TR-8R, the concept of a casino planet like Canto Bight, that weird squid alien Han and Chewie were smuggling, and the bomber from Last Jedi (even though it was impractical, it’s a nice nod to WW2 with the bombers needing to be escorted)
Only good thing I can think of is that it made a lot of people soften on the prequels because for the first time since the Holiday Special we got to see what a REALLY bad Star Wars film looked like.
