I spent most of my free time in high school playing SWG and losing myself in the universe but growing older I find Star Trek has more colorful plots even though their aliens are silly charicatures in comparison. TOS even had an episode where some people could channel "The Force".
I've lost a lot of respect to George Lucas reading how he took all the credit for the first trilogy when it was his wife who made the movies emotionally engaging in the editing. I'm not quite sure if J.J. Abrams can deliver something more than a CGI extravaganza.
Star Wars has so much potential for dark themes and 'gritty' cityscapes. Imagine if Oliver Stone or Tarantino would make something like Natural Born Killers in the Star Wars universe based on Tales of the Bounty Hunters. It could probably only happen if someone Kickstarted it :(
