I just wanted to venture in with an opinion here. Now I'm a bit of a newbie to the whole RPG thing, so if I get a few of my points wrong, please forgive. I think WotC is somewhat responsible for the demise of the RPG. They didn't really market their product and a product can't become profitable until it can attract new consumers to them. WotC didn't really do that. Where, outside of industry publications, did you see ads for the RPG line?(not counting Mini's, obviously) They have the Star Wars Insider, which I'm sure would have given up some adspace for their own license to help sell the game, but show me an instance in the past year of the RPG even being advertised there. I agree that there were probably other factors that contributed to its demise, but they didn't really try to sell the product line, so WotC themselves does share some of the blame.
