    This is interesting and will be another footnote in the history of E3's demise. It may be interesting for those of us who like to talk about the industry as a whole. But to us as consumers, I'd say th...

    Given what occurred in TLJ, this was the best ending we could reasonably expect. Lots of fan service, though, just like in TFA; c'mon, JJ. Palpatine was a weird choice--they should have had hints thro...
