Ive made a small list of some other things that could be fixed. Ill probably have a shot at them all at some point.

ANH

Obi Wan forgets R2. A few line removals would fix it. I think he even calls R2 ‘friend’ so I think it works without those lines.

“I haven’t gone by the name Obi-Wan since oh, before you were born.” Untrue in context to the prequels.

“For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic.” A few times in the prequels it is stated that the Republic is only 1000 YEARS old, not generations. Can just cut out “For over a thousand generations”.

“A young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine until he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights.” Is this right? Anakin HELPED the Empire? This makes it sound that the Empire was around before Anakin joined. No?

"General Kenobi, years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire.” Did Obi Wan serve Bail Organa? Not sure…

“Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.” Han says a few things about how he doesnt believe jedi/the force exists. It works great in the originals alone but he would of been born around the time of Order 66 surely? If not then soon after. Seems a bit off.

ESB
Yoda: “You are reckless!”
Ben: “So was I, if you’ll remember.”
While we dont get to see Obi Wans youngest years, in context to the prequels, this doesnt appear to be true. Nothing that Obi Wan does seems reckless at all. Ive removed that “so was I” line but I have no idea what Ben could say instead.

ROTJ
“I took it upon myself to train him as a Jedi." Ben says at least one line here to Luke on Degoba that is untrue in context to the prequels. Not sure about the line that I quoted, Qui Gin requested it. I think Ben also states that Anakin was a great pilot when he met him. This is closer to being untrue.

Cadavra said:

Temuera also has quite a few Fett lines in the Battlefront games, including “As you wish” and “worth a fortune to me,” which sound a bit less phoned-in than the lines he recorded for the 2004 DVD.

I didnt know that Temuera Morrison did those voices but your right. I might have to check that out.
