...would you feel that the integrity of the saga so far would be undermined? For me, it would almost trivialise Anakin's character journey (rise, fall and redemption) and would fly in the face of the prophecy that was harped on during the prequels. It's hard for many to imagine Star Wars without some sort of arch-nemesis to the Jedi empowered by the Dark Side. They could use such a villain without it being an actual Sith, but might that be something of a copout? Can the sequels actually get away without having red-lightsaber wielding baddies?
