With this deluxe expansion Fantasy Flight seems to be getting into the Shadows of the Empire story line. We have seen in the previews for Echoes of the Force cycle is bringing in characters from the Dark Forces (Video Games). The expanded Star Wars universe seems like it's going to make a bigger appearance.

It didn't really hit me till I saw Premonitions of the Future, that old card/cover art just brought it all back. I know some want them to stick close to the movies but I think this will be a good direction to go. It was a huge marketing push by Lucas when it came out; spawning games, novels, comic books and of course toys. It is a good story that adds plenty of flavor and characters to spread the universe out.

I think Fantasy Flight is more worried, at least for now, about staying in the same time period then staying to the movies. We complained enough about Jedi's fighting capital ships. How bad is it going to be when Anakin is fighting Darth Vader?

I don't think we need to worry about seeing an Anakin card anytime soon. It seems to me that since Disney took control of the Star Wars franchise, it's almost like the the prequels never existed. They cancelled Clone Wars right away, announced episode 7, and besides a Gungan hanging out in the Cloud City Casino, there hasn't been anything yet from prequels in the LCG. And hopefully it'll stay that way.

Emperor Palpatine from Core, Bail Organa, Twi'lek Loyalist, Looking for Droids, and 501st Trooper all reference content from the prequels. At least visually.
