There was an interesting [link=http://www.cnn.com/2002/SHOWBIZ/Movies/05/07/ca.s02.george.lucas/index.html]article[/link] on CNN back in May that I don't seem to remember ever being brought up here before. Here is the last part of it, which I think shows Lucas' opinion of everyone who wants to control his artistic style, suits and fans alike.[blockquote][hr]Lucas has maintained his independence with the "Star Wars" films, doing things his way, on his schedule. He controls the "Star Wars" merchandising -- "I didn't want someone using the name 'Star Wars' on a piece of junk," he once said -- and also the many "Star Wars" characters and story lines, which live on in books and video games even when they're not appearing on the big screen. "I'm able to tell the story the way it's meant to be told, and I don't have to listen to what [studio] market research does," he said. "They would be listening to the fans -- 'and these people think you should be doing this, and these people think you should have that character in there.' "These [stories] are not put together by a marketing department. They're purely sort of a creative act that was created to tell a great story."[hr][/blockquote]So there, deal with the way it is, and get the heck of Lucas' back. Go do something on your own like he did, and then you get to call all the shots.
