I'm so sick of this stock response, especially since it shows an inherent lack of knowlege about what make Star Wars, well, Star Wars.
But it also doesn't matter. Ackbar's total disregard is merely the ultimate symbolism of Disney's telling the "old guard" of fans that they are not wanted, not needed, and cast aside.
I feel essentially tossed into the trash. They've abandoned me, I'll abandon them. I'm done giving them a dime.

I am a OT fan. I paid to see the PT in theaters when they came out. I think it had flaws. But it wasn't that bad.

But still I've continued to crawl back. Like said. We're like battered wives. Thank Christmas Han Solo looks like such a goddamn stillbirth no one will question me not wanting to see it.

At first. MGM had held the rights to a Hobbit movie since the 60s and weren't going to let their constant financial instability stop them from getting a Peter Jackson-sized paycked out of it.
So when Jackson et al started their work, they hired Del Toro to direct and started all the preproduction fun. But MGM ran out of money and shut them down. Then a few months later called them and said they could start working again, and so preproduction resumed. Only for a few months later for MGM to call them and tell them to stop what they were doing, MGM was out of cash. Again.
This went off and on for a couple years before Del Toro just had enough of it. He had to hold off from any other project he wanted to do to keep himself free to work on Hobbit as soon as he got the greenlight. But he couldn't wait forever for MGM to get their shit together and so he had to walk off the project.
So everyone turned to Jackson as the only logical choice to direct the Hobbit movies(there were only 2 planned at this point). Jackson just really, really, really did not want to go through the stress of directing a huge epic film again.
Once Jackson took the helm, he scrapped everything they had done so far. In his words, it looked like a great Guillermo Del Toro film, he needed to make a Peter Jackson film.
And so work resumed with Jackson molding the movie into his own vision, only he envisioned a lot fewer location shoots and a lot more comfortable studio shoots and digital cameras and more CGI.
Watching the behind the scenes featurettes, he really looks totally apathetic every time he gives direction on set.
And that really came across in the movies, too. They just look like someone did not give a fuck about what they were making.

Well now you got me thinking, and now I can't stop thinking, so enjoy some nonsense that is technically your fault:

Think of the Reploids as "new" Jedi, and Sigma as a new Dark Side wielder that learned of an ancient and terrible secret and has begun turning some of these Jedi over to the Dark Side. Sigma slowly becomes a darker, more powerful figure, a being akin to Vitiate, but each time he comes back he's slowly losing his mind and any semblance of sanity left deteriorates until he's become a mindless, almost Eldritch being.

Certain skilled fighters are set to root out the beings Sigma has corrupted, Jedi gone "Maverick" so to speak, and these are your "Maverick Hunters." They don't technically need to be Force-Sensitive/Reploids, but they do need to be able to go toe-to-toe with the "Mavericks" in some capacity.

And in the background of all this, you have the leader of the new Jedi, the reformer, Luke/X. Wanting to prevent further violence, but doing what he can to stop the spread of this corrupting influence. I guess you can have Kyle as the "Zero" of all this or something, though if you want new canon, Ezra might fit if you squint. (You should just use Kyle though, Kyle's cool.)

A movie based around the same events from different perspectives. Lets say an invasion of a planet by whoever.
A movie about mandelorian mercs and their codes of honor and philosophy as they serve the highest bidder but their own above all.
A movie about the invaders and their justification for the attack aswell as the massive logistical scale of it all. Basically a more normal war movie, expect sad squad mate deaths and the like.
And a movie based around the people on the planet, how they are reacting to the attack. Have some side with the attackers others go full resistance. Have the main guy caught in-between.
Finally a movie involving the force side of things. Talks about how this affects the universe as a whole and ect. Have the protagonist be a jedi on neither side, there only to help people evacuate a warzone and dealing with people cursing him and his order for not stopping the invaders and show the temptation he feels about it all.

That last one reminds me a little of events alluded to in KotOR regarding the Mandalorian wars but never addressed head on.
It's made me think: Is there a story in EU or canon about a Jedi conscientious objector to the Clone Wars? Someone who just refused to fight because war wasn't the Jedi's place or something like that? Or someone with the same kind of conflict about it not being the Jedi way but who goes to war regardless?

I think it was hinted in the first prequel but thrown to the side when the found maul. Actually I could see jedi siding with the separatists, i mean yeah they were basically space jews at the top but many joined them out of actual complains and disdain for the republic. They wanted their freedom back.
From what I could tell the seperatists were more of a confederacy while the rebublic was more centralized. Let its members have alot of autonomy of course, got dimoceracy and monarch side by side as members after all, But they still took taxes, dealt with alot of trade, and basically had military control of its members. Tons of reasons to want to leave it.

I think my biggest problem with the ST so far is that I don't want to interact with anything from the setting so far. Except maybe those crystal fox things, those were cool. There haven't been any other locations, vehicles, weapons, factions, creatures or pieces of technology that I've wanted to feature in a campaign yet. Basically any time I think about setting something during the time of the ST, it just turns into avoiding everything from the movies and focusing on my own donut steel shit.

Beforehand, I couldn't wait to throw players into a planet from the prequels or have them fight in the clone wars or the GCW or something, fighting classic Imperials or even doing Old Republic stuff. but so far Disney just hasn't made much that I've wanted to include in a game.

“Spaceball One” is the nickname of an undercrewed, incompetently-run warlord SSD operating in the Outer Rim. While it’s size and armerment are still threatening, the sheer ineptitude of its crew and commanders keeps it low on the New Republic’s list of priority targets.

Recently, Spaceball One suffered serious damage to its life support systems while fighting another warlord’s fleet. With nobody on board capable of fixing the critical atmospheric generator, the ship’s crew have resorted to kidnapping talented civilian engineers to save themselves from getting vacced.

New Republic Inteligence, noticing the missing engineers and fearing the “Spaceballs” are constructing a new super weapon, send the PCs to investigate. Boom, instant campaign.

This is the closest i've found so far, with the only disadvantage of this being that there's another less reworked edit that puts back in the Leia/Kor Sella scene.

But really the movie is unsalveagable, thanks in large part to the terrible art direction.

The Pressurized Universal Docking System (PUDS). It's main purpose for us is docking a snubfighter to a Sil4 ship. It includes fuel and power lines, is flexible and configurable to attach to many different cockpits or hatches, and with upgrade allows quick attachment and release and ease of access.

The note about light freighters having external clamps is a little vague about how it works. This one not only makes sure you don't have to do a space walk in the middle of combat to get aboard your Headhunter, but lets you get aboard and un-dock in 1 turn.

Avail 4, 1HP, 3000 cred, 4 manoeuvres to dock and exit and vice versa can be trimmed down to 2 with 2 mods.

Eh, hard to say, really, from the ground up? Tough to say, so much of it has gotten iconic.

I guess for starters, and I feel awful for saying this: I'd pare down the number of sapient alien races to maybe less than twenty. Then try to expand on each race having multiple sub groups, 'nations', ethnicities, and cultures among them. (Like maybe the kamino are a twi'lek people instead?)

I'm gonna stop there, that seems awful saying it out loud and feels like it misses the spirit of star wars.

I will say this though:
more guns that look like real world guns with fancy sci-fi stuff on them for spess nuggets
Give the rebel alliance an aesthetic progression, starting out looking like Spess GLA from C&C Generals meets Spess Vietcong peasantry and slowly develop into looking like Spess NCR from Fallout.

Yeah, it's not like the regular A280 isn't also an AR-15 gussied up with sci-fi bits. Or that "add lots of gubbins to a regular gun" isn't how most Star Wars blasters are made in general.

I think the old AUG and to some extent the G36 just sort of get way too much screen time. They're just a bit too readily identifiable, well at least to me anyway.
Stuff like the PPSh-41 and 43 could go under the saw and welder to make something cool, plus there's probably a few million out there for next to nothing, the G3 and FN-FAL might also be kinda cool for some of the larger guns as well. They're basically everywhere and cheap as shit.

Drop something off that ridiculous Kylo build and at least give Blackout the title. The weapons engineer probably.

Certainly not with trickshot.

doesn't have any kind of oversight.

Of all the things that Disney shouldn't have fucked up with the new trilogy, this one really is unforgivable. There was literally no reason to not have a single writing team come up with three solid movies to serve as an anchor for nucanon. They had the money to do that, and if the projected loss compared to what they wanted to make is true it will likely end up costing them somewhere around a billion dollars. That's a horrendous mistake to make, and it honestly makes me wonder just what the fuck is going on in Hollywood that they fucked it up this much. Kennedy is almost certainly going to get fired before this is all over. Because how in the fuck did they not have a solid outline before doing this? Who the hell decided that writing TFA in a month during pre-production was a good idea? You have the fucking budget to wait a year and get good scripts, get input from people, etc. It'd like they were too goddamn excited to make new Star Wars they didn't stop to actually try and make it utterly amazing.

Don't know. It's my personal favorite Star Wars film now. It has its clunky parts, but I actually liked most of the characters and I think it did a fantastic job of showing what the galaxy was like in the era immediately before IV. But I also don't hate the prequels and so it being a really good bridge between III and IV is a bonus to me.

Really depends on what your local community is like. Even as an avid Armada player I'd say hold off if you don't have a community to play with.

The fact there's basically nothing in the ST that's connected with SW at all outside of some old characters your supposed to feel bad about dying, pretty much. It's amazing how insulated it feels. We've had two big social scenes now in the ST and in neither of them was there a recognizable alien. It's like they didn't want to actually make Star Wars.

Lord_Tryzalot

IF they had gone with R1 like movies, I wouldn't care much, heck, I would even go to the cinema to see the movies. Using new characters is good, at least they put new stuff and was dumb but fun action flick, with a very star wars feel.
One of the best SW space battle (I prefer the Coruscant one, and of course it doesn't beat for me the Trench Run or the RoTJ endor space battle, at least for me) and cute new star ships. It added, it didn't destroy. A think we can't say about the ST, than had to give us a new, interesting look at the SW galaxy. And we all know how that ended up being...

I think it's partly because some people in Hollywood think that the viewers are morons that gobble up anything thrown at them. This is true for summer blockbusters but that is because people are not expecting much of them other than really cool stuff to entertain themselves with for couple hours.

Hence why people like Kennedy have this aversion of doing "too intelligent" scripts to their movies so they don't invest in writing part at all as they see it redundant part of the movie. Just thinking that script written a month will be enough.

The nucanon page:
To this end, the only way a Sith, or other darksider could make use of a kyber crystal was to use the Force to dominate the crystal, bending it to their will. This process would cause the crystal to "bleed", as if it were a living organism, resulting in the distinctive crimson-bladed lightsabers synonymous with the Sith.

It's the clone war that brought them into it, just to protect the people from the oppression of a droid army and save the Republic so they can deal with Dooku since he's a Sith.

The PT OJO's hand was also forced by having to rescue two of their own, including the precious chosen one, from execution on Geonosis. It certainly didn't help that the CIS' members included the Trade Federation, who had shot at Jedi just a few years prior. I can't really blame them for being forced into taking a side during the Clone Wars.

Starting a new game of KotoR 2. What class should I make? I really like force jump, but the guardian's lack of skills makes me feel super goddamn useless in the early game.

Newbies tend to not know what the hell they can/cant do in games, so plan for some railroad shit with lots of high octane action sequences with the occasional social interaction to build characters. And with the FFG games you can push them to be imaginative with the scene and make them build it as they go along.

I always found Force Jump to be the worst Feat of the 3 starting classes, I've really come to love the Sentinel class thanks to the Immunities it gets. I'd only go Guardian for Feat intensive builds like Dual Wielding

I always used to go Sentinel, but on my most recent playthrough of 1 I went Guardian and fell in love with force jump.

According to Kevin Jenkins, the design supervisor for The Last Jedi, the ship was already indicated in the initial script, but its design did not occur until post-production. He also indicated that director Rian Johnson specifically requested for a bigger battleship known as a dreadnought for the film, and that it would act as a gun platform as well as a flat surface with lots of cannons on it.

Anakin hurting Padme is a big reason why the Vader persona is able to take control though.
Anakin is buried out of shame.

It's not any more redundant than the rest of the PT.

Hell no dude, watch some of the behind the scenes stuff. the studio had to drag jackson out to do the hobbit movies, which he only did because h didn't want them to get some nobody to touch his baby. the first lord of the rings had around 6 years of preproduction, the hobbit had 6 months. there were entire scenes shot that were essentially improvised, and I'm certain jackson lost 3-4 years of his life from the stress. but he loves the series the actors love the series, otherwise they wouldn't even have done it again.

I don't disagree with anything else in your post (it's definitely true that the studio dropped the balls on the Hobbit and PJ just had to throw himself and catch as much of it as he could), but Del Toro isn't "some nobody"

del toro was going to do it, then quit for reasons I don't know. THEN they went Jackson and threatened his baby.

Del toro hobbit would've been aesthetic as fuck

del toro left because the movie was going through development hell, while he was making Pacific Rim Jackson stepped/was dragged up to save the movie and help WB make $$$$$$$$$$$$$

also forced perspective is a really cool trick, if quite simple

To be fair, ANH does rip off Dune very heavily visually.

And most of what Lucas ripped off weren't exactly high concept either. Asimov didn't invent the galactic empire.

MGM had a 50% stake in the Hobbit, but were literally going through bankruptcy while Del Toro was working on it. He jumped ship at a time when it wasn't clear the series would ever get made to go do other things that would've otherwise been cancelled.

CIS droids still show individuality and apparently real emotions. There was even one that got freed from the command override network that decided to immediately desert, preferring minutes of freedom and certain destruction to continued slavery.
