    For much the same reason that Allies & Adversaries collected various NPC stat blocks from assorted books: Not everyone has the desire or funds to be a completionist for all three lines.  And there's a lot of gear spread out amidst all the splats for just one of the lines, much less all three of them, and some of those books aren't readily in stock.
    There's also the long-voiced concern of both the power creep that comes with constantly creating new equipment as well as a simple glut of gear that a lot of players may well never touch either because it falls outside their character's wheelhouse or the basic gear in the core rulebook does the job well enough without adding fiddly new rules to the game.  By doing a compilation book of pre-existing gear, FFG can both alleviate some of the concern amidst veteran players/GMs who have most if not all of the books of yet more tech-stuff that may cause problems with the game, but also providing those newer or less affluent players/GMs with a selection of the good to be found in books that aren't readily available.
    I hope I'm wrong, but I have a gut feeling that most of the new gear is going to focus around the one-of-a-kind weapons used by iconic NPCs rather than stuff that players can expect to have a reasonable chance to get their hands on.

    I like to see more sector books. Coruscant (or Imperial Center), the Corporate Sector, Unknown Regions, Wild Space, Umbara, Mandalore, Deep Core. 
    They could do organization books like a Rebel Alliance, Imperials, Black Sun, Zann Consortium, Crimson Dawn, The Pyke Syndicate, Bounty Hunter Guilds, The Republic, The CIS, First Order, Jedi Order, New Republic, etc.
    More adventures for all three lines.

    Plenty to write about the KOTOR era, or the TOR era following that.
    By popular demand they might do Legends sourcebooks. Many,many options. New Jedi Order, Yuuzhan Vong, Legacy era perhaps?
    Planet guides and new species are always fun.
    Not sure if they would run the game into the ground when they go for First Order and Resistance era though? I haven't seen too many positive fan reviews lately.

    I don't know; they let Marvel produce all kinds of collections with the 'Legends' label all over it. Seems like it would be easier (not needing as much approval, etc) if they were allowed to use that same tag. But, it would take take some kickstarter-esque campaign to make something like that feasible, IMO.

    Probably because there's a number of overly vocal people, both on these forums and in the Star Wars fandom in general, who use "whims of the mouse" in a very non-whimsical way in indicate their dissatisfaction that Star Wars as a franchise isn't going the way they want it to go.
    To be frank, since your post was just a line of text, it's very easy to interpret as it being just another one of those non-whimsical attacks on Disney just for the sake of attacking Disney because the poster has some wild hair up their exhaust port about some imagined slight that Disney is allegedly responsible for.

    This was a horrible easily forgettable/regrettable movie going experience. The lead lacked all the charisma of Han, everyone in his scenes outshone the actor, pansexualising of Lando was ridiculous and Emilie Clarke was dull. The original directors train wrecked it and it was beyond Ron Howard to jump in the directors chair and apply the breaks to prevent it hitting that wall. I had hoped this was going to expedite Kathleen Kennedy's departure and hoped Dave Filloni would take the mantle but it wasn't meant to be. At least it put down a couple of dumb movies in development, namely someTatooine movie and Rian Johnson's Trilogy. They need time now to re-evaluate what works. This clearly doesn't hence the box office slump.

    Well, that's no way to promote the game.
    First let me say I no longer really care one way or another what happens with this game. As I have said before I'm just here to follow the story and see if its worth using in 4th.  
    But I see a few ways that this can go at this point.
    1. FFG manages to capture enough of the old fan base + transfers from SW/Genesys to support the game. (From the response I'm seeing on the L5R fan sites that seems unlikely)
    2. FFG gets an influx of players from SW/Genesys + new players to support the game. (Possible, but I have no info on this as I'm not in with the SW/Genesys)
    3.  Game fails to drive in the needed numbers and FFG release a Genesys setting for it. (Not sure on this one as I don't know if Genesys is working out for them)
    4. Game fails to drive in the needed numbers and FFG release a updated version of the old R&K system. (I don't think they are likely to invest more money to do this)
    5. Game fails to drive in the needed numbers and FFG drops the game entirely. (More likely if the sales are bad) 
    If people come to this site and are treated like that, all you are doing is driving more players away from the game.
    While he may leave anyway I doubt he doesn't know other players that might be interested, and if they get the idea that the forum is hostile you may lose them before they even try it.
    That said, do what you want, that was just my 2¢.

    splad got a reaction from player3412539 in THANK YOU!   
    Thank you so very much for the resurrection even in small the greatest rpg ever made. The D6 system embodied the star wars cinematic fashion with its fast paced system and lovingly crafted adventures and stories. i wish WEG hadn't chapter 11 way back. But i bought and still have every sourcebook and adventure ever made for this game. I love to be able to draw up a character in 10 minutes and be good to go. The individual character progression in skills and attributes let the player tailor each character and a party would be a broad spectrum and unique group. I hope this is the beginning of more and hopefully new productions. While im glad to support the FFG system of star wars it is a pale shadow to the Award winning D6 system. I hope your listening cause allot of players like me who latched onto this game in 1987 have been hoping and waiting for this day. Thank you again:) I got a good feeling about this!

    This is a massive jerk of with none of the associate pleasure. A ridiculous waste of people's time. It is a fantastic game with plenty of ready players and support but the lumbering ffg obviously is the one legged man at an **** kicking contest. This game is very obviously not a major concern for them and or the by product of pissing a portion of their fan base either. On the boat....my **** it is...

    You could not be more wrong if you were Mr Wrong in Wrongs emporium picking out your new wrong suit at the wrong time. Their is still a huge following to this game to which FFGs star wars is a pale shadow. The forced narrative is clumsy directive to force gms into narrative rather than actually having a good players who can describe what they want to do in a cinematic fashion. Not to mention the clunky space combat. Which is slow and very constricting.

    Ah no, its clearly a lot different than the Imperial Star Destroyer, although it does school (as in looks like Imperial Ship Designs).  Rejected as in didn't make it into A New Hope, and barely made it into Solo 40 years later; it's in a Imperial Nancy vy recruiting ad were it's been redesigned as a smaller and different class of ship.

    I'll be honest, I've figured Kanan wasn't going to make it out of the series since the first season, and was kind of surprised he made it through Season 2 (though I suppose Ahsoka was the sacrificial lion of that season).
    Heartbreaking as it was for Kanan to go when he did, especially after Hera's final confession of her feelings, it was still an awesome moment to go out on, and even in dying he helped the Ghost crew score a major victory over the Empire and hand Thrawn a rather decisive setback, and perhaps even saving the Alliance in the process.  Not a bad note to exit the series on.
    And was I the only one to notice that the big spirit wolf during Ezra's dream sequence had the same markings on its brow as Kanan had on his Season 1&2 outfit?
