After being ruthlessly pestered by some friends on another board, I read the first 50 issues of Legacy and the 6 issues of War. Here, The Old Republic seems universally (and rightly, in my opinion) derided for elements that seem to belittle those of the films. It seems to me having had read Legacy, the same accusation could be made of it. But I'm given to understand Legacy is much more popular around here. I mean no disrespect to the creative staff and fans of the series, but I am curious how a plot line very much recycled from the films earned such acclaim. Maybe I missed some nuance to the story. Obligatory Disclaimer: I know Legacy and the movies aren't identical. But I read in one of the Star Wars Insider magazines that Jan Duursema sought not to cheapen the accomplishments of the films wherein Luke destroys the Sith, defeats the Empire, and resuscitates the Jedi. Yet a lifetime later, the Sith are restored, the Empire is ascendant, and the Jedi are scattered...? Look forward to hearing some thoughts on the matter.
