And the reason for invoking The Force Unleashed is partially because I was very disappointed by the TFU book, which I bought because I played TFU the video game, thought it was cool, and then discovered that said book had remarkably little to do with the game. And I've had that rant building for a while.
This has nothing to do with why you think Jedi should be inlcuded in Edge of the Empire. I'm sorry you didn't like the TFU book, but if you have complaints about a source book for a different game system made by a different game company, WTF are you doing complaining about it on these forums? Complain about it on WotC's forums and stop wasting our time.
But also because it shows one way to solve a problem. They wanted to do high octane Jedi action in the original trilogy milleu, so they had the player play a Jedi assassin working for Darth Vader hunting Jedi.
Fine, They (whoever the hell they are) wanted a high-octane game. The FFG developers don't. EotE isn't high octane, and it isn't Jedi. At least not at this point, because they aren't the point or goal, or focus, or WHATEVER of EotE. They chose a solution other than yours. It's been 6 months. It's time to get over it.
And also because it shows that rules are there to be broken. If in a Harry Potter book someone makes mention of a haunted house where the students are forbidden to go, you can guarantee that five minutes later Harry and co will be wondering through said house.
And it is more fun to spray graffiti on a sign saying 'No Graffiti' while skateboarding past a no skateboarding sign.
This is the dumbest argument for Jedi in EotE yet, which is really saying something, because you vomited some seriously f***ing ridiculous ideas onto these forums. You're saying the developers should support Jedi in this system BECAUSE the game was not designed to support it?!
Are you stoned or just stupid?
You might as well complain to Honda because the Accord doesn't make toast, or piss & moan because your dermatologist can't perform an appendectomy.
