I'm pretty much in the same boat. You can only shoot/slash/zap/choke/blow up Stormtroopers for so long before it gets repetitive. :P
I'm all for something fresh. Knights of the Old Republic, Tales of the Jedi, Golden Age of the Sith, Legacy... anything that isn't just a different spin on the whole "Galactic Civil War" thing.
I can't see anything like that happening though. Given today's video game budgets, stuff needs to be as appealing and accessible to the "common folk" as possible.
