With the release of the new Star Wars movie, I have been thinking about playing Star Wars again. In particular, I was thinking back fondly on the Living Force campaign which ended way back in 2005. I really enjoyed it, finding it imaginative and exciting. My idealistic Jedi consular from Naboo did a lot of fun things in that campaign, the least of which was to confront a rancor beast and getting it blown out into space, or when I met with ArchChancellor Palpatine.
Yes there were issues, most of which I attribute to its d20 backbone, mostly because all high-level characters dipped into Jedi classes. With the new Fantasy Flight system, I think there might be a way to circumvent the issues of the original campaign and make something nice and fun. Of course, there is an issue with Disney/Lucasfilm having to approve every step the project.
To the powers that be, please consider the creation of an organized play campaign. With such a campaign, I would fork the cash for the game, something I won't consider the way things stands now. Having some devoted, quality authors working on material provides us locals a chance to play different styles of game, not just a single GM's style.
I guess they heard all that already and didn't think worthwhile. But I think it might be a great(er) way to expand the game.
Sigh. I need to find me a good group to play Star Wars with...
