I have a theory about this. Based off of pretty much everything that LA has done in the past 2 years, its quite clear they are on a mission to make star wars cannon as absolutely terrible as possible, possibly to allow the creation of a new god vehicle like the sun crusher or something. Regardless of why, I believe that the reason for this is because the number 3 is being removed from star wars cannon. Why? Why not, they already have the new story of Battlefront:Who Cares What Its Called that looks like it was probably stolen from a 7 year old playing with legos, why not just continue the streak started by the latest movie by continuing to amp up the sheer level of crap in star wars cannon.
