I know this is also a cliche, but it could add a bit of a twist to the series.
DESANN LIVES! Yes! Desann is still alive! After all, it was never really CERTAIN that Kyle killed him at the end of JKII. I mean, think about it.
*The fallen Desann clenches his lightsaber in his fist, then his grip releases, as if he is dead. Kyle shakes his head and force jumps over the wall, cue the whole "Rebel arresting Reborn, Jan and Kyle kiss" scene, then the whole wrapup with Luke.*
Does that sound like a confirmed kill to you? Desann could have limped out of there and gone off to fight another day... suspenseful!
