    Perhaps with the Lost Tribe—preferably as portrayed by JJ Miller rather than Christie Golden—but I think the more interesting choice for such a premise would be the likes of the Sith who came to power during the New Sith Wars as seen in the Knight Errant series. Larger, bolder characters like Lords Odion, Daiman, Xelian, and Bactra, who each show a vastly alternative view of what it means to be Sith, while maintaining and lording over their own kingdoms carved from sections of the galaxy. The dynastic and warlord nature of the Sith during the era would lend itself well, in my opinion, to something like a Game of Thrones setup, with other galactic states like the Republic, the Mandalorians, and the Hutts acting as additional outside powers to be used as occasional enemies, rogues, and allies.

    If they make a TV series like that, then hell yeah I'd watch.

    Hell yeah, a DOTJ/TOTJ/KOTOR-era show is my top preference...add a focus on Sith and you're right on the money for me.

    I think a Star Wars-esque Game of Thrones would be great. I'd watch it.

    Imagine all of the different groups who'd be fighting one another. :p

    I'd love to see Vitiate's Empire vs. the Brotherhood of the Sith.

    Sith would work the best for a GoT type show, if you watched or read it. You should check it out if you get bored :p

    All jokes aside, I tried to watch GoT and could not get into it.

    I'd like to see a Sith conflict with the Jedi depicted in film or television, taking place long before the events of the current films, but I don't know that I would care for the Sith to be the focal point for the show, nor would I care to see a Star Wars show imitate Game of Throne's abundance of characters nor really go out of its way to imitate Game of Thrones. GoT is a great show IMO, but so are Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Sopranos, Battlestar Galactica, Rome, etc. All shows that really carve out their own audience and find their own voice. I wouldn't want Star Wars to rip off Game of Thrones just as a shortcut to mooch off its success.

    The consistent thing that I had hoped for throughout TCW that I never really got and hope to see in a future Star Wars show is a tighter link between politics and action (show consequences for political actions, don't just talk about it).

    The politics of the Star Wars universe have been depicted very, very poorly IMO when it comes to TV and film. Yet rather than avoid the politics of the Star Wars universe as I've seen some critics wish for, I see a lot of potential there for interesting stories were there a capable writer that didn't write about poisoned tea or pregnant Amidala going through a test of physical strength in order to get a treaty ending the war signed (thank God Lucas shot that idea down).
