Actually the worst of the Rebel groups, is the Specforce Infiltrators which would be vetted by Mon Mothma.-Chosen for both skill and motivation, Infiltrators were tasked with the riskiest missions. Capable of entering the most heavily guarded Imperial installations, starships and planets, Infiltrators acted as saboteurs, abductors, rescue operators, spies and assassins. They also took part in invasions, armed with sniper rifles and grenades for destruction of vehicles and structures.-Wookieepedia..Basically these guys are picked for their hatred of the Empire, in essence these guys would be willing to detonate a proton torpedo in the Senate chamber to kill the Emperor.

Just my two creds but the Empire didn't last long enough to qualify as an "Age." The title "Star Wars: Imperial Period" wouldn't be the best for PR.


There have been rumours that episode VII will not have the republic being restored yet.

 

 

I hope they let the galaxy do at least a little 'living happily ever after' after Return of the Jedi. If all our heroes achieved in episodes IV-VI is plunge the galaxy in to decades of unceasing warfare it kind of takes the fun out of it.

 

 

Oh, i doubt that anyone would deny the heroes of the OT their well deserved/earned little HEA, but unlike Palpatine at the end of their struggle more than half of the known galaxy was still their enemy. They still had much more work ahead of them.

 

And if the new writers at Disney do not portray every Moff as the usuall mentally unstable, paranoid, selfish, dumb, incompetent asskissers but instead as intelligent, (xenophobic) ruthless rulers then the Empire would not implode like it did i the EU. It can still make for good space opera movies, boring villains make boring stories.

Ya know, if one wanted to do up intra-Imperial conflict, one could probably spread the rumor that Darth Vader was actually long ago slain and now impersonated by a Rebel sleeper agent named Anakin Skywalker...  :ph34r:

Well, according to George Lucas, the Empire is intended to be bad guys and the Sith to be objectively evil.

Fans proceeded to immediately disregard his bull and have fun with the Empire and make believable characters left and right, and come up with sensible rationalizations east, west, north and south.

Well, could also be that the Moffs see which way the wind is blowing after Palps bites it, and decides they'll get a better deal if they negotiate a peaceful surrender to the Alliance.  This way, they may have a shot at keeping control of a given system so long as they "play nice" and might even have a good chance at getting in on the ground floor when the Alliance does set about re-establishing a more democratic galactic government.
