This is one of the Star Wars stories though, not a direct part of the main Star Wars films.
The originals are OLD... maybe not to us, but they are.
There is no point trying to please older fans whilst turning away or alienating potential new fans to the franchise.
I think what they have been doing has been a reasonable way to try to please older fans to an extent, while also appealing to new audiences and new demographics.
I try to be positive about the newer films and sub-story films to see the best points of what is trying to be done. Cash cow aside (hey it always has been), I'm generally happy how they are exploring the potential the franchise offers. Of course everyone will think it should be different... but they aren't the director or writers are they? It's funny... have seen people who used to go on about how bad Lucas was, now saying bring him back in.
