  1. Thanks for your commentary.
    You should have stuck with Game of Thrones. If you look past the violence, there is excellent world building, story telling and character development. Not sure if you have read the books as I found that helped with appreciating the series. As the series went on, I did notice a toning down of some of the violence.
    I am surprised you have are not overly familiar with KOTOR. You need to play at least KOTOR 1. KOTOR 2 in my opinion, had an unsatisfactory ending. The potential in this part of the SW universe would make for great stories and add to the mythology. More importantly it would move away from the Skywalker saga.
    As you know I am a huge fan of anything Star Wars. Still remember seeing the original Star Wars at the theater in 1977. However, there is great potential for oversaturation especially if Disney continues with certain themes evident in TLJ. That was the first SW movie I came out of not really wanting to see it again in the theater. Time will tell of course but I think the same thing (albeit on a smaller scale) happened with Star Trek in the 90’s.
