Yeah, I really hope that they won't go down the road they're suggesting. I'd rather they do something new, not milk the last dregs of nostalgia people might have for the existing characters. As far as games are concerned that is. Novels, comics and the like are the best place to be telling small side stories, prequels and character pieces as the recent 'Homeworlds' series proved.
Oh and there's no way in hell I'd play any game where Kai Leng in the focus. They may as well make it about Conrad Verner. At least that way you know it's a joke!
