Everybody knows this. The terms of the license don't allow it. We can't fix it. Asmodee can't fix it. Only Lucas Licensing can. Convince them.  Stop whining at us about it. 

Asmodée tried that very recently and failed. Lucasfilm refuses to discuss it. Perhaps it'll be possible when it's time for the license to be renewed. It's usually at that time you can renegotiate it.

At the risk of being told to cease striking a deceased equine again...

You’d have to get EA in on it, too. The odds of both contracts coming up for renewal at the same time are slim. And, if LFL didn’t want to alter the terms of the licenses off-cycle, I’d think the chances of them agreeing to change them with one off-cycle are only slightly better.

Interersting to hear that Asmodee did try to get the change and LFL wasn’t interested in doing it. That, along with other things (the tabletop game terms remaining essentially unchanged since the late 80s, Funko altering the design of Pops for Star Wars instead of asking for different terms, etc), serves to strengthen the notion that LFL is reluctant to change the terms of existing licensing agreements; that their stance is, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” And in their view, this one aspect isn’t broken enough to change the contracts.
