Does anyone else feel like Mandalorian is nothing but a decently made show that's still indicative of the problem with current Star Wars?
I really only have personal feelings to go on with this so bear with me, but ever since the Disney buyout I've felt like the entire Star Wars universe contracted to a much narrower viewpoint and sort of lost its longterm appeal. To me, I remember in the prequel era that it felt like there were just a million little ways I could lose myself in Star Wars and immerse myself, they weren't ever really chasing one rabbit at a time but five or six. Gendywars was coming out the same time as games that took place during the GCW which was coming out the same time as books post RotJ which was around the same time as KotOR which ran alongside Galaxies and etc etc etc. I didn't have to care about the books for example because Gendywars had my attention and things overall seemed more interested in presenting a setting for your imagination to take hold for you to have fun rather than a complex narrative designed to get attention and sell you on shit (though the books were more focused obviously, due to their medium)
These days I feel like Star Wars isn't the metaphorical hydra it was where you could chase down one head and have fun all the way down, now there's much less stuff released and it all focuses on one era at a time while pushing a few primary narratives instead of the freedom it used to have, so if you don't care about Mandalorians or Jedi or whatever else they're doing, you kind of have no place to go and just have to not care about Star Wars for a while, but with everything so interconnected now, it feels like you have to pay attention to EVERYTHING or you'll have no idea why x character in y game is important or not.
I don't know, my two cents/
