Not exactly related but, am I the only one who kinda prefer Leia's white dress (pic related) over the Slave Leia outfit?

I'm not sure if it's because of the hoax that George Lucas convinced her to not use a bra during the scenes or if it's because i'm a weirdo that likes breast bulges/curves on clothing, but Leia in her dress isn't something you can exactly ignore.

>am I the only one who kinda prefer Leia's white dress (pic related) over the Slave Leia outfit?

Nope - I prefer it to her other outfits as well. Less is more.

Didn't Carrie mention the no-bra deal in Empire of Dreams? I think she said she used tape instead of a bra…



I mean…It's literally dressed up with that dress that's how she is usually remembered - and let's be honest, those breast bulges are VERY obscene, and that's what makes that outfit hot as fuck. Not like the Slave Leia outfit isn't too far behind, but hey, she's not 'supposed' to be sexy on that outfit, but dayum, ain't she.

If she used tape, well, didn't stop her boobs from nicely bulging up and creating one of the most perfect contours i've seen.

That's where Star Wars keeps fucking up honestly. The best stuff and best characters tend to stay as far away from "Muh Force" as best possible.




there can be balance. we've seen a lot of great non-force shit (republic commando comes to mind) and a lot of great force related shit when it isn't the bleak black and white good vs evil (kotor 2).

unfortunately, disney has no idea how to do any of that shit.


File: da0c59acff9f1dd⋯.jpg (25.24 KB, 385x358, 385:358, gee.jpg)


To be fair, nobody seems to know how to do any of that shit since even in old EU everything was so predictable since anyone special turned out to be a Jedi or Sith



grey jedi weren't explored enough, that's the problem. everyone delved into factions, there needed to be more neutral ground.


File: e4341a3edb5ad57⋯.jpg (40.66 KB, 607x342, 607:342, no_ep3_for_u.jpg)



George Lucas hated moral relativism and shades of grey for almost the entire lifespan of the EU, and Leland Che enforced his viewpoint pretty harshly. Anybody who turned preached something like the Potentium Theory or a rainbow spectrum of the Force was retconned either by a blurb in a more recent book or an official Word of God correction of the record to have been misled, secretly Dark Side, or ignorant. "Grey Jedi" was redefined as a Light Side Jedi who didn't strictly follow the prescribed rules of the Jedi Order such as Qui-gon didn't. But even if the Jedi weren't always correct, it was at least C-canon that their point of view was the "most" correct.

Lucas only started backtracking on that towards the end of Clone Wars when he said that the Mortis Arc contained the theme that the Light Side and Dark Side were both necessary and needed to be kept in rough equilibrium. That's a total reversal from his earlier position that the Dark Side was unnatural cancer and "balance" just meant the Light destroying it altogether.

I'm not even sure it's "Disney" that doesn't want to go into middle ground and shades of grey since they own plenty of other bought properties that explore such themes. Instead I think the LucasArts stewards themselves are too scared of deviating from what they think are Lucas' blue prints. Even Dave Filoni, who gets /our guy/ praise is afraid of featuring Sith spirits in the cartoons because Lucas didn't think that Dark Siders should be allowed to persist after dying.

That's been my problem with the New (tm) Canon in a nutshell: Everything is played ultra-conservative unless it's a standalone novel.

Though I no longer think that Medichlorians are an inherently bad idea, it still fucking sucks that the Original Trilogy's true original theatrical versions(particularly A New Hope) are extremely hard to UNBELIEVABLY HARD if not impossible to find these days! Lucas went OVERBOARD as FUCK with the special edition VHS and laserdisc releases(ie Han not shooting first, and the stupid bonk noise) He and many at Lucasfilm convinced the NFR(National Film Registry) to accept a "specialized" edition instead of the original theatrical or 1981 re-shoot versions. Not only were many copies spliced and diced, some were destroyed. Thoughts?

Not only subject field related, but also ideas on what might have happened to the SW franchise had they either not been purchased by Disney, sold to somebody else, such as Coppola or Paramount. or sold to Disney without Kathleen Kennedy or JJ Abrams having any part in EP VII. Or Episode VII could have never been made, and the main series ended with ROTJ.

And just because this will probably come up, the Nazis really were exactly that stupid, petty, and incompetent. That's why they lost the war. As a group they simply couldn't leave well enough alone and kept picking fights they couldn't possibly win, dividing their people in ways they couldn't possibly win with, and picking strategies that were never going to pan out.

But back to the original topic at hand, after a certain point everyone working under the empire kind of has to own up to the shit the empire does. Initially you could chalk it up to misinformation or conflicting interests but after a few years anyone who willingly picks up a gun and a white helmet has to take responsibility for the choice of siding with people who would do such a thing.



You're going to get a lot of autistic frog screeching for mentioning the "Jew canon", but I can tell there are people writing for Star Wars now that have done their homework on some of the old EU stuff and aren't just pushing their own point of view.

>Sheev literally designed (it that way)

Is probably the best example. Your mileage may vary, but the new novels drop hints that Darth Sidious wasn't even interested in ruling the Galaxy as its emperor for its own sake. Instead, the entire point of the Galactic Empire was just another step in some long percolating plan to gain powers beyond godhood through the Dark Side. The Empire wasn't just evil because hey Palpatine's a dick, it was engineered as some kind of bullshit-tier elaborate Force ritual so that he and Vader could bait the Dark Side somehow.



>And just because this will probably come up, the Nazis really were exactly that stupid, petty, and incompetent.

So stupid and incompetent that they turned a nation in ruins into a world superpower. They definitely lost the war because they were morons, not because the entire world went to war with them.

The sad part is that you're dumbass thinks he's smart.



>Created a regime based on white supremacism

>Tried to take over Russia in winter

>Didn't even go for Moscow when he had the chance, instead preferring to fuck around in Ukraine

>Built thousands of Stukas he didn't need when he could have been building fighters

>Attacked the Soviet Union after signing a non-aggression pact with them, thus hampering any possibility of him getting more allies who might have helped him win

>Had his subordinates fighting amongst one another to curry favor with him so they wouldn't unite against him, resulting in inefficiencies from overlapping duties

Now let's look at Sheev and compare:

>Created a regime based on human supremacism

>His elite troops were beaten by Ewoks

>Used himself to bait a trap, paid for it by mimicking another of Hitler's fuckups, see below

>Built TWO moon-sized battle stations he didn't need when he could have used all those parts and credits to build a shitton of Star Destroyers

>Attacked his apprentice's son after previously telling him he supposedly killed his own wife and was therefore childless

>Had his subordinates fighting amongst one another to curry favor with him so they wouldn't unite against him, resulting in inefficiencies from overlapping duties

It's not an exact copy, because World War II was a traditional military conflict between governments of similar strength, while the Galactic Civil War was an asymmetric conflict between a large and powerful Empire and a small Rebellion that relies on stealth and trickery. Still, there's definitely a resemblance.


Maybe we should put aside arguments revolving around the historic competence, intelligence, and morality of the Nazis. Instead, let's remember that the creator of Star Wars (and probably most of the people who helped him) is a lifelong Democrat and liberal shaped by the auteur movement. The same man who directed "American Graffiti" and "THX", movies with themes that might be summarized as "fuck authoritarianism."

One of the most common observations about the style of the Galactic Empire is that it is THE empire. People see not just shades of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan, but Rome, the USSR, the Golden Horde, the British Empire, Napoleonic France, and other massive imperial states. Usually the Galactic Empire inherited the worst attributes of all these inspirations because they're meant to be the very obvious villains in a black and white morality scheme.

It's to the credit of some creative and original writers that they can rationalize characters and motives that are logical or ethical to serve the Empire, but it'd be dishonest to claim they aren't also going against the spirit of the franchise in doing so.

More reasonable than pretty much any theory stating that Snoke is secretly some other character.

I'm not following this "source of the Dark Side" business established in the Aftermath trilogy. It's always been enough that malevolent use of the Force, channeling it through ill will has defined the Dark Side.

I keep hearing rumors that The Last Jedi features some kind of important Force tree. Is the Dark Side caused by some alien thorn bush? People complained that Midichlorians and Night Sister magick took Force lore into areas it didn't need to go, but this is the sort thing that defines superfluous.

>gonna kill off Fett, because le prequels r bad

Kek, how many times is Disney going to shit the bed?


It'd be pretty stupid to just dispense with an easy source of merchandise prostitution like Boba Fett. I think they killed off Han in TFA partly because Harrison Ford is growing so old, but they've never shown Boba Fett unmasked. You can easily have him modeled using some vaguely kiwi dude and handwave differences in appearance from Jango's actor as an imperfection in creating a non-standard clone.

I feel sort of ambiguous about new Fett and Mandalorian things, though. Everything since Clone Wars has been pretty hit or miss, not that I support Karen Traviss' Fandalorian lore myself.

I have a library of comics showing Boba's life, but let's just say the old EU won't be considered.

There are many episodes in Clone Wars of Boba Fett running around. I doubt its about the character rather than it is that everyone in Disney can't make a strong male character anymore. It's just not possible for them as writers, I havn't seen one in anything they've been making.

Sith fanart is always the fucking worst. It feels like 4 times out of 5 it's all drawn by people whose only exposure to the lore has been the movies and a couple of video games who think that the key to character design is over-designed armor with prosthetics and an unusual lightsaber design.

They all have wrist or elbow-mounted red lightsaber blades, lightsaber projections substituting for spikes on their gear, or are something like a wookie Sith swinging a light-bow.

On the other hand, it's not like Star Wars doesn't tacitly encourage them what with every new Dark Side enemy needing a weirder hilt design than the last. Kind of Sonic OC's seeming less retarded when one remembers that SEGA has their own canon recolors.

Reminder that in the true canon, Revan did literally nothing wrong

Except not putting down Malak's coup

32 posts and 17 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



I wouldn't say that. Karpshyn and Avellone were in contact when the former was writing "Revan" and the Jedi Knight class story for TOR and the later's input mostly amounted to "I guess, whatever you want. Your writing."

Drew even ended up thinking that the feminine dark side entity that shows up in the Sith Warrior's storyline is Kreia because that was his favorite KotOR II character and Chris shrugged about it just to be a tease.



that's all a bunch of fake bullshit and kreia is a pretentious edgy bitch who made up everything she said for the sake of confusing the shit out of everyone. if revan didn't act then the sith lord would have showed up anyways and taken advantage of the mandalorians fucking shit up as a giant distraction anyway and the sith lord was probably responsible for causing what the mandalorians were even doing in the first place.

the jedi counsel were a bunch of arrogant cucks who sniffed their own farts and were just as evil as the sith and the mandalorians but for completely different reasons. (the same stupidity that the jedi all have in the original trilogy.

revan is a true hero.






Meh, I think both games are enjoyable from different standpoints.

If you just want to play as your own OC jedi and don't care that much about story, you can go for KoTOR 1, though I think you can still enjoy the story as if it's a cheesy movie rather than a serious plot.

If you want a compelling plot and better writing overall, play KoTOR 2.
