I thought Maul would somehow survive and play a role in the next two films. Glad they brought him back, regardless. I thought for sure Anakin would return to Tatooine to free the slaves. I imagined this is how Owen Lars and his wife Beru came into play, that they would be slaves like his mother was. But I liked the storyline with the Tuskens Raiders better, because it again demonstrated how dangerous the sand people were. I thought Qui-Gon would appear as a Force Ghost.
