I think a far better idea would be for the far-flung Empire consolidating power in the wealthy Core systems- drawing in their fleets and making key systems impervious (by SW's standards, anyway) to attack.
That would leave the Outer Rim, Mid-Rim and whatever else to chaos- which the Rebels would have to pull together without the Core systems and their wealth, industry and trade.

They could have made the galaxy a FAR worse place by crippling trade and infrastructure. How many worlds would have been dependant on trade to even feed themselves?
We sure saw Naboo needed trade just to get by.

And not only would the Empire be an ever-present threat, but not all the freed worlds would want to become part of a New Republic.
Certainly the former Seperatist worlds would pass- they lost the war and were crushed when Republic became Empire.

Lastly, you'd get warlords and planetary/system dictatorships- and crime!
Holy shit, you'd have the crimelords expand into the only government in some systems.

Add to alllll that, there might well be a rise in Force users- suppressed through mandatory testing during the Empire- for both light and dark sides.

They could have had a sorta Iraq parallel to match the obvious political overtones Lucas was adding in the prequels.

Instead we get braindead super-comet and an ongoing internet joke. Let me guess- all life on Endor was destroyed by debris from the Death Star?

I don't know where "The New Order" has hidden during the years after Endor, but it's probably far out of the way. I don't think Hamill is Ren, though, they've shown Ren without the mask, walking in snow with Snow Troopers, and he's tall, thin, and wiry. Everything Hamill isn't. rimshot

I hope the actor playing Ren is really good, because so far, for me, the picture makes him look like an angstier version of "The MotherFucker" from Kickass 2.

I hope he's a new character- in every way. We don't need "Vader lite".
I'd much prefer someone more like Thrawn- that inspires loyalty instead of fear and intimidation.

I wish he wasn't a human- hell, I wish got Thrawn!

I'd settle for something exotic....I'd love to see a Sith wookie. Or Min Cal- those big eyes corrupted by the dark side...
