This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Marcia Lucas, Howard Kazanjian rip on Star Wars sequels.

Dead horses beware!



Nothing disgruntles fans haven't said, but it's another thing to hear it from people who worked in the industry, especially the woman considered by many to be the person who "saved" Star Wars in the editing room.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

A very dead horse. At this point you might as well discuss who's to blame for the fall of the Roman Empire.

But it doesn't matter why Star Wars died because Lucasfilm likes it the way that it is now. They could fix it in one day but they won't.

You're not wrong, but for a lot of us it's vindication to hear it from someone who played a vital role in bringing us the original trilogy. She feels the same way a lot of us do.

For me it's closure.

Yeah, if only Marcia Lucas or Howard Kazanjian were producing, then the sequels could have been awesome like No Easy Way, A Good Son, The Amati Girls, or Extreme Days.

I didn't like the sequel films either, but I don't think these two are in any way authorities in good movies.
