THE THREAD SPEAK!

They might have put out the last movie in the Skywalker Saga*, but there's still lots of Star Wars to talk about!

There's a new season of Clone Wars currently airing on Disney+, and I can't wait to see how that Anakin fella saves the day!

There's a new season of Mandalorian coming out later this year!

They just announced a big publishing push in a new era called "The High Republic," which is something like 300 years before the movies! There's a Wookie Jedi!

And, most importantly, I'm playing a lot of SWTOR and want another place to talk about that

*
That's what they say, but come on. c'mon

    don't tempt me with TOR, man

    I spent another year down that rabbit hole. I crafted an elaborate backstory and family tree for all my characters.

    the amount of fashion, my god

    I'm literally going through all the class stories in order to build up a legacy and a family tree

    It's a real feeling of not being about to play the game until I'm a couple hundred hours in

    there are not a lot of things from TOR that I'd say other MMOs should copy (story emphasis aside) but one of them is DEFINITELY the "match all my gear to my chestpiece color" button

    Or maybe have the mechanical gear you equip be completely divorced from the cosmetic appearance of your character?

    Reposting this since it was on the last page of the now-locked previous thread: Woolie and cover-artist Little V take on KotOR 2 with Woolie as the blind player much like he was in the SBFP-LP of the first game.

    I don’t understand this post this is something you can do

    Unless you mean like unlock all customization from the get go which I can probably get behind but idk there’s something to having cool looking shit as a result of doing cool shit

    Is all of the new clone wars season available right now to binge or is it on a scheduled release?

    New Clones Wars episode
    Something I'm really glad they're touching upon again is the plotline of all the corporations declaring neutrality so they can sell to both the separatists and the republic.

    Right now I'm unable to muster up much excitement for new Star Wars stuff that isn't Mando s2 or the new Clone Wars eps

    UM

    Clone Wars
    So one of my favorite moments of the series was at the end of season five when Ahsoka implies that she knows about Anakin and Padme

    Looks like now they’re pointing toward Obi-Wan and Rex knowing as well. Obi-Wan having figured it out like Ahsoka and Rex maybe being looped in to cover for Anakin when need be

    It’s definitely open to interpretation how much/what exactly they know, but it’s still an unexpected scene that I thought was cool and adds a neat layer to things

    so we're definitely into the Revenge of the Sith time period if Anakin already knows Padme is pregnant

    When in the hell during ROTS does Anakin have time to be off on this mission?

    Edit: maybe I'm mixed up but she definitely a) looks pregnant and b) keeps holding her belly in the universal fiction sign for "pregnant" and he doesn't seem surprised

    This is right before RotS since he's still on the outer rim sieges that he doesn't get back from until Sheev gets captured. I think Anakin just doesn't notice the pregnancy because he's dense.

    Anakin being super earnest and loyal to his people, but also dumb as a sack of hammered doorknobs is the best.

    Yeah, I think the idea is
    She's not showing enough that he would notice unless he was looking for it, but she's showing just enough and touching her belly a bunch to clue in the viewer

    Revenge of the Sith won't start until just about the Siege of Mandalore, since Ahsoka says in Rebels that the last time she saw him he was leaving the Mandalore mission to rescue Palpatine

    Man.
    You ever think about just how weirdly bad tros was.
    Like it was bad in just so many bizarre ways. There were so many choices happening, and so many dumb ones.

    I’ve said before, a lot of the ideas that went into TROS aren’t necessarily bad, they were just executed in the dumbest way possible.

    I dunno, on the surface, stuff like:

    Gonna go TROS spoilers just because I’m not sure...
    Returned Emperor!
    More to Rey’s background!
    Consequences for the heroes!
    Cool Rebel fleet!
    Defections from the FO!
    A new lightsaber for Rey!
    Force ghost Luke!
    The Knights of Ren!

    All sounds like it would be neat to see!

    Until you see the film and realize
    They lampshade Sheev’s return.
    Rey is Sheev’s granddaughter.
    They have 3 fake-out deaths! But Greg Gunberg is toast.
    The fleet does nothing.
    The defections mean nothing.
    The new lightsaber is an afterthought.
    Luke is less important in TROS than he was in TFA. Hell, Han is more important to TROS than Luke is.
    The Knights of Ren are the biggest mooks in Star Wars history.

    Say what you will about the movie but the part that had the tears welling up...
    ...was the part when Han's ghost/hallucination showed up to talk to Ben. That legitimately got to me in all the right ways. I honestly dunno how much Harrison Ford is actually fed up with Star Wars but God bless him for returning one last time and for that scene in particular.

    It was a scene where the actors were allowed to actually play their characters in a human manner, rather than just as pawns that the script dictated must move in this direction at the time..

    It absolutely has ideas. The idea that Finn was the first of a group of child soldiers gifted empathy and the ability to rebel is great.

    So why didn’t they have anything for them to do?

    The part where Rey and Kylo are connected and even trade items from across the galaxy is cool. The way it’s invoked in the confrontation with Palpantine however is random garbage.

    The movie didn't really have that as an idea. You had to want to interpret it that way.

    The weirder part than having a faction of rebel ex-stormtroopers with nothing to do was having that faction and also having the main characters absolutely slaughter their way across a star destroyer.
