The RPG and the Star Wars Universe

It's been a bit slow for me lately due to holidays and travel; I must admit that I still haven't seen Rogue One, but I hope to remedy that situation today.

In the interim, here's a link to an interesting article about how the Star Wars RPG from West End Games revitalized life in the Galaxy Far, Far Away.

How a Pen and Paper RPG Brought Star Wars Back from the Dead

In particular, I find it interesting to consider how much freedom West End had back in the day, compared to how carefully controlled things are now during an era in which there'll be a new movie every year for the foreseeable future.
