    PT - Anakins story
    OT - Lukes story
    ST - Han & Leia's son's story?

    I always felt that Anaikins story was spread over the first six films, so Luke's should be spread over the last six films in the saga. It remains to be seen if he will appear in the ST at all and, if he does, if it will be for more than just the first part of the ST. As it is going to be a continuation of the saga, Episode VII is appropriate as a part of the title of the seventh film.

    EXACTLY! Despite what Lucas may have said once-upon-a-time, the films were not always about Anakin. In fact, the original first Star Wars book was titled: Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker. And, despite the fact that Lucas said in the Making of the Empire Strikes back that he had story treatments for nine films, at one point after RotJ, the OT films were going to be the only films that Lucas was going to produce.

    In one interview that took place about the time of the making of the last prequel film, Lucas even said he had been surprised, as he was working on those prequels, that the story had become "Anakin's Story". So that wasn't the original intention. Now, maybe, we're going back to that original plan of a Skywalker Saga with the first trilogy mostly about Anakin, the second mostly about Luke, and the third mostly about Luke's child.
