Most of FFG's other games already have material from the new movie (hell, even their line of RPGs!), but Star Wars The Card Game feels like the red-headed child in that regard.

I understand that they would probably need to come up with new factions for the new movies (although not for Rogue One...); I just hope they don't decide to wait on Episodes VIII and IX to get more material.
I want a short-tempered Kylo Ren in my deck ASAP.

Well, force awakens content will appear in this new game just announced today:
https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/star-wars-destiny-show...

It features content from the WHOLE Star Wars canon universe. So I guess you'll still have to wait for force awakens content to appear in Star Wars LCG (and in fact we don't know if this will ever happen or not it may not,) but you'll soon have a way to play a great Star Wars card game with characters from the force awakens. Though it's really unfortunate that it's a ccg.

The Force Awakens is set 50 years in the future from the original trilogy. The content so far has been relatively close to the orignal era

It's fine for the RPG where they release a new game with the same system for different periods and playstyles, but I get the impression the LCG is meant to be about the building of deathstars.

It wouldn't bother me. In fact, a light side pod would be easy to do with Maz (a former pirate/smuggler btw), her tavern/castle, an event and maybe Anakin's saber and you're done. All of these would have existed during the original timeline also.

I think we'll see Rogue One cards before we see The Force Awakens.

My money's on the next Deluxe being purely Rogue One. Now that they finished running through the factions, they need a different hook.

Sounds good to me! I don't mind that hook whistle
