I'm sure when GR handed RA that first manuscript and said, "Susan's too busy to read this stuff. Would you have a look at this and see if the author is on the right track?" that no one imagined that writing drafts of official memos to licensees would be perceived as "power over the franchise".
That's a good point. Fans of the books and comics often see them as equal in importance to the shows and films, but the fact is, in the grand scheme of things they're a minor sidebar to the franchise. Having approval over the tie-ins is hardly the same thing as having authority over the franchise.
