I'm concerned that the defunct-EU's inclusionist tendencies are going to worm their way into the new Story Group canon. I mean, I know Palpatine is one of the most important Star Wars characters and therefore exposure is inevitable, but was a first name really necessary? Especially with it being a literal one-off name-drop that served absolutely no purpose other than to seemingly say "LOOK GUYS, HE'S GOT A FIRST NAME." Palpatine's high profile nature means the sacrifice of some of his '80s enigma, but the character really does work best when we don't know everything about him. There's a reason the OT just referred to him as "The Emperor." It's ominous, powerful, conveys a sense of grandiosity and status. Even with the publicity of his family name in the PT, the characters often referred to him as Chancellor. We don't need to become too familiar with Darth Sidious.
