The whole "passing the torch to the next generation" would usually imply a death of a original trilogy character, if only to exploit the dramatic effect.
In that regard, I think Han's death would carry the most heft, followed by Luke or Leia.
As much as I would prefer C3P) blasted to atoms I know it ain't happening.
Killing off Chewie, possible, but there's no little wookies taking up the fight, so suspect if anyone is dying is a parental figure.
I own all the star wars dvd's aside from phantom menance. There is a reason for that. PM is a craptastic movie that has about 10-15 minutes of watchable scenes. The rest of it feels like it was meant for a 7 year old, specifically Lucas own children.
Now some people are saying they got sucked in by the trailers for the PM and so feel very wary of being sucked in again.
The first Force awakens trailer had me a little dubious, but the second one this summer dispelled all doubts. The third one is stellar. I have a lot of trouble understanding people saying they think this will stink like PM after seeing these trailers. I almost suspect some of trolling. This is not fanboy nostalgia talking, from a purely visual presentation it looks like a kick ass action adventure movie.
However, it does help that I am a fanboy..it makes it all sweeter.
With Lawrence Kasdan writing, you can be sure there will be less "I hate sand" and more "Apology accepted Captain Needa" moments.
So we were tossing around numbers..apparently wookiepedia says 25,000 IMP1 star destroyers were built and who knows how many IMP2's, let alone escort craft like the Nebula's.
So that being said, how many Imperial ships were at Endor? I know the movie doesn't show more than 30 capital ships simply because of screen limitations, but I would think they would have needed more than that to prevent any rebel ships from escaping?

Its also a little known fact John R has a one line quote in a Bridge To far. When he was a Calgary expo last year I got him to sign an autographed Empire pic. And then he blew me away by quoting exactly the line from a bridge to far. Great actor, great dude.
Just to be clear, Relg and the Marag woman were not nice to each other at all, until Relg was told to wise up by Ul and then he stopped being a jerk and go procreate.
As a rule, I like High fantasy like Tolkien, but I also like more "realistic" fantasy..that sounds weird..anyway, like Ice and fire or the Dragonbone throne trilogy.
When I was younger, my favorite popcorn fantasy was the Riftwar and follow ups by Fiest..but then he got divorced, and his writing went into the toilet and he kept writing more and more crappy books to pay alimony presumably.
Actually, right now my total favorite writer is Jim Butler. The Dresden files is the perfect mix of light and grimdark.
Martin I still enjoy but concur the story has been mired in to many sideplots.
I got 14..couldnt remember the name of the game R2 and Chewie played.
I got the number of rebel spacecraft attacking because it was an obsession of mine as a kid..
lets see Red squadron and Gold squadron..red had 12 fighters, gold had 3 or 6 .
only reading the book helped me understand there were 4 squadrons if I am correct, or was that Lucas screwing around and changing Blue squadron in the book to Red in the movie. Now I am going to have to look that up again. But the number 30 always stuck with me..we certainly don't see 30 on the way to the station..
and we have 3 returning..90% casualities..Han was right, it was a suicide mission

damn straight..Greedo was not the most competent of scum
Even Spocks Brain?
come on, Tasha Yar killed by a black sludge monster..It was riveting stuff..
Actually, no. I think there was a positive correlation between the quality of the episode and Rikers beard..i.e. when he grew a beard, the episodes got better.
1.Dead Heart of Zin..it wrapped up the path by incorporating people and events from the previous adventures, and had a suitably epic big bad..
2. rise of the runelords..stopping the runelord of greed,,great conclsion after long buildup
3. legacy of fire, good end mitigates a crappy part 5..not sure if that why it stands out..usually part 5's of the best.
1. The Seven sins of The Sihedron

was there not a subplot during that story where a bunch of imperial officers tried to assasinate Vadar, one by trying to throw him out of an airlock.
how I can remember something like that from almost 30 years of not reading it, but cannot remember what I did last week..sheesh
I'm talking about alternate Earths, not a fantasy setting at all. In this scenario, the parallel universes are the result of time travel, so all the differences would be traceable to human meddling with history at some point.
If this is so, then you really really need to read the guns of the south by Turtledove,
South African white surpremisits travel back to 1860 and give Robert E Lee ak-47's.
just for motre flavour
Dragon age 2 disappointed its fans\
Mass effect 3..majorly disappointed all of its fans, until the free expansion ..in which case most of the fans were still upset but by that time had doused their torches and put the pitchforks back in the barn
