General Star Wars Video Game Thoughts
Time

I recently figured out what it is that Lego games are missing to be truly great: introducing new mechanics and building upon them. They need to have levels more like this, rather than repetitive, assortments of easy tasks haphazardly mixed together. It would be tricky to implement such a design formula when adapting an existing story, but I’m sure it could be done.

STAR WARS: REBELS - New animated series
Time

I actually successfully guessed the title of the show, but I was more concerned with the idea of a show set between ANH and TESB starring the OT characters. It’s a shame that’s not what we got. Marvel tackled that subject instead. If you’re gonna give us new characters, though, at least make them interesting. Ezra is generic AF, Sabine didn’t get proper development until season 3, and Zeb just feels unnecessary (although I guess it’s worth noting I find him slightly more endearing than most characters of his archetype), and instead, we coulda had Rex from the start. It’s kinda weird they didn’t make Ahsoka part of the main cast, as she could have easily filled Kanan’s place as the young Jedi’s master. That said, Kanan and Hera are pretty good characters.

When Luke is hiding from Vader under the throne dais, the consoles he’s using to conceal himself don’t even reach to the ground. When he screams “No!” he’s right out in the open like Vader couldn’t see him. there needs to be more of a maze of consoles and equipment underneath the throne.

I think Vader was just toying with him. He was too busy tempting Luke to bother finding him. He doesn’t want to kill him.

My list of potential changes for my edits
Time

Keep in mind that many of these are just ideas to consider, and I may not use them. In fact, some contradict each other. Those that are crossed out have already been fully implemented in my edits.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dtNc5ZQFUrm6H5ps7rfjB46uKj8RmwvBR3PO5bCu684/edit?usp=sharing

Here’s some in depth analysis of a couple of my ideas.

I want to make Dooku the unifying villain of the Prequels, like Darth Vader is in the Originals. That means he should be in every film of the trilogy. We’d cast someone new as a younger Dooku and have them chroma keyed into an existing scene.

The obvious choice would be to have him as Jedi on Coruscant. He could talk to Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. The only scene that would really work is the balcony scene, where Obi-Wan tells him that if he wasn’t so radical, he’d be on the council. At that point, Dooku could step in and take Qui-Gon’s side.

A post-credits scene of him ordering the Clone Army would be neat (in my edits, he is Syfo-Dyas (yes that contradicts TCW, but it’s just a single episode, so I can overlook it)), but wouldn’t make much sense, as it would spoil the mystery of the next movie, has no relevance to this movie’s plot, and SW doesn’t do post-credits scenes anyway.

An alternative would be having him already left the Jedi and replacing Sidious with him. I’d rather not due this for the simple reason that I don’t want to contradict TCW, which makes it clear that Maul was Sidious’s apprentice, not Tyrannus’s. I guess he could be neither a Sith nor a Jedi at that point, working as a middle man between Sidious and Maul, but it would be odd for a Sith master not to speak to his apprentice directly like that.

The main problem with TPM IMO (aside from feeling redundant) is that the main character is Qui-Gon instead of Obi-Wan. It’s especially true on Tatooine. How can we remedy this? It’s not within our abilities to just add him to the Tatooine part, so we should try to give him something else to do. Unfortunately, all we have to work with is shots of him on the ship.

I was thinking maybe we could have him encounter one of Maul’s probes while hanging out on the ship. Instead of Maul finding Qui-Gon, he finds the ship. It gives them a reason to run without having to re-add that scene of Qui-Gon killing the drone. The problem would be making a scene of Obi-Wan taking out the drone. I doubt it’d be feasible. At most, we could have him spot the drone on the ship’s sensors and alert the crew. I suppose they could shoot the drone with ship, but at that point, we might as well just let the drone get away, as it wouldn’t be Obi-Wan personally dealing with it.

I mean…you could’ve made a new thread instead of bumping a 5-year-old one for a dead project, but okay. This was one of those things I started but was never able to finish that I kinda hoped everyone had just forgotten about.

You’re probably right. It’s just that I wanted to show my aproval of Bingo Wings’s idea. Oh well. Would you like me to start a new thread? I guess there wouldn’t be much point now.

Can I change my username?
Time

I went with the name Anakin instead of Ender (my usual name) to avoid confusion with Darth Ender, but have come to regret my decision. It won’t let me make a new account with the same email, so is there a way to change my username? Otherwise, I’ll have to change my email on this account to free up my real one for a new account.

Are you still taking requests?, because I’m trying to integrate camouflaged stormtroopers in the Battle of Endor, as I feel they would know better than to dress in white for a fight in a forest.

This camouflaged stormtroopers idea made me think, and I realized:
Prepare for what fight?
I would assume they never imagined in their worst nightmare that they have to actually fight those creatures. It’s like no SAS or any elite force on earth would bother to use camouflage while “fighting” monkeys in the jungle, using flamethrowers and machine guns. It would be more like exterminating, not figthing.

One would think one small rebel group is no match for all of them with some AT-AT and AT-ST and speederbikes on their side.
And they were hidden as long they wanted to be hidden. Rebels never saw them. Everything went as expected, Rebels were easily captured.
No fighting.

But it was a trap. They knew Rebels were coming. Granted, they were supposed to let them deactivate the sheild, but that doesn’t mean they needed the Rebels alive. Just let them take the bunker, and on their way out, kill them.

Anyone else totally disregard Leia being Luke's sister?
Time

I would disregard Leia as Luke’s sister – not because of twincest*, but because it’s universe-shrinking bullshit. Alas, too much of the post-ROTJ EU I accept as canon predicably runs with the revelation, so, as it is with the Death Star II, I accept it but only with much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

My thoughts exactly. Luckily, there’s not much acknowledgement of these in the stuff I follow, so I can generally disregard it.
