Well, I think the whole "shroud of the Dark Side" thing is more of a symptom of the problem and not the actual problem itself.
That would essentially be accurate if by "the problem" we mean Palpatine. The problem was Palpatine/the Sith and the fact that the Sith had unbalanced the Force. It was external in nature and did not originate from any flaw on the part of the Jedi, including their marriage policy. Presumed Jedi incompetence is not in itself a dark side thing.

The Jedi allowed themselves to become so complacent that a Sith Lord who was right in front of them managed to cripple them and never once set off anyone's "spider sense" among the Jedi.
He was probably smart enough to not use the Force right in front of them, for one thing. We do appear to see Yoda giving him suspicious looks at times, and in ROTS they come right out and say that the dark side surrounds him.
I'm not really disagreeing with you, I just think there's more than one thing going on here. That's what I mean when I say that I think Lucas was going for something that maybe wasn't as clear as he had hoped. I just think that the Jedi had put themselves in a place that made things a lot easier for Palpatine.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

People are speculating that it's the foot of the AT-AT or an escape pod, but it could be pretty much anything at this point.

I tried, but I can't muster any enthusiasm for this project. My main reason for it to do well is it's good for other SF projects, since we all know Hollywood likes to copy success.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Well there's not really a whole lot to get excited about yet. We don't know anything about the story other than the fact it takes place 30 years after ROTJ, and the only confirmed cast member is R2.

I think once we see some actual footage, or shots of Ford in the Han Solo costume again, it'll be much easier to get excited for this.

Let's just hope Carrie doesn't get into the metal bikini.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Could be an old Imperial Walker foot. Could be a round door of some kind. On the other hand, it could be a completely different set prop or decoration designed specifically to look like something from one of the earlier films just to spark conversation and rumors.

Never put anything past Lucasfilm and J.J. Abrams.

This. When this movie comes out, I'm sure I'll go see it. But for now, I don't share the excitement of a hunk of something being seen rolled out of a tent. Please wake me up when there is something to see.

Man, you guys are crazy. It's a new Star Wars film that isn't a prequel and it's going to have the original trio in it (most likely). How could you not be incredibly excited? I'm incredibly excited. I feel like getting in line at a theater for the movie today.

And even though nothing official's been announced, Anthony Daniels is likely coming back as Threepio given that he's portrayed the role in just about every incarnation of the Star Wars universe that's featured him.

It could just be left over imperial junk for sale or something like that like we saw in Mos Eisley. Just junk in the dessert.
