This makes SO much sense.

A great way to look at the Star Wars universe. (Picked up from elfs)

I don't think for an instant that Lucas intended that. Or even a tenth of it.

But that, right there, is some Epic-level creative retconning. And frankly better than whatever Lucas did intend. ;) Kudos.

I agree, I don't think Lucas had that much of it together. It does creatively work out continuity issues that run through the entire series. Nice.

The problem is, you know Lucas didn't intend it that way. Which means that while it's an impressive story, it's not the one we got. Now, if someone wrote an epic space opera from that operative's point of view we might have a story worth something, but the readers would complain that the writer stole that psychic sword fight idea those minor characters do from somewhere.

Yeah, I know Lucas isn't that deep, but I reject his reality and substitute my own. ;-)
