"Start anew, stick to the story and don’t care about the merchandising."

By Steven Smith

They tell me to have faith. And by “they” I mean “them” and I by “them” I mean the same folks who promised me the prequels would be awesome.  You know these folks – delusional, hopeful, steeped in the Lucas lore yet probably didn’t read "Han Solo and the Lost Legacy".  The same people who didn’t blink at the idea of midichlorians and justified Jar Jar Binks screw up in the Senate as reason for his existence.  These people are wrong and will be again.  Or will they?
