As a kid I tried making one of those. the quickly realized why it's believable that most people would never even try doing it. a: clues are very fickle. If you don't interpret from the right PoV you'll literally never figure it out ever. b: setting up the clues is even harder since you need simple things that are easy to find, but also not something that changes much.Episode 9 looked great, and there were some really enjoyable moments, but it wasn't terribly memorable.
And the whole treasure hunt schtick was awful - looking for a thing which gave a clue to another thing, which then lined up perfectly with another thing when held up from precisely the right place (what are the chances). On the plus side, C3PO wasn't completely annoying, and actually helped with the plot.
I have the blu ray and I’ve still not taken it out of the wrapping. I enjoyed Rogue One and Solo was an enjoyable romp but the last three Star Wars films not really doing it for me, although the ones I have seen were generally better than the prequels.The last film has long gone, the dvd has been out for some time and I still have no desire to watch it, so for me, the saga is incomplete. The last two movies I saw were rubbish and killed my interest in the franchise.
Occam's razor says it's proof of overworked programmers on a deadline ...In SW: Battle Front 2 they have a LOT of playable characters, each of which has unique animations and character models... but while Rey looks like Daisy Ridley, and moves like Daisy Ridley, her gameplay mechanics are nearly a copy of Obi Wan Kenobi. Not exactly proof, but quite strange for a main character to play as a clone when they came up with unique moves for random bounty hunters from the first movie....
Well, that's an idea that'd make more sense if not for the fact that A: it's a major character, and B: MINOR characters often have unique game play mechanics. It just doesn't make sense for them to go to the time and effort of making Rey look and move like in the movie... and "run out of time" to give her unique powers. Especially when they came up with unique gameplay mechanics for guys like Bossk. Bossk is technically in more than one movie... still a minor character though.Occam's razor says it's proof of overworked programmers on a deadline ...
I saw that last week - the same goes for Foster's Alien adaptations (20th C Fox - now Disney). I was among millions around the world who read his SW novelisation, he was so good at them. It's an outrageous situation.Disney being a bunch of shitcunts, as I believe is the legal term:
this sets a very ugly precedent.
That’s disgusting, I hope this receives a massive amount of publicity and that the Mouse pays up. Insert joke about working with a Mickey Mouse operation here.Disney being a bunch of shitcunts, as I believe is the legal term:

I'm aware of him through his many works but have only read a few of his Lovecraftian type stories, which I must say, were very good.I saw that last week - the same goes for Foster's Alien adaptations (20th C Fox - now Disney).

Another forum I follow has been discussing this at length - as you say Disney has form for this sort of thing. The main issue is their resources (and vast in-house legal dept) allow them to repeatedly kick legal action into the long grass so that complainants just run out of funds or accept pitiful settlements long before it gets to court. This is one of the reasons the John Grisham, Erin Brokovich etc trope of little guy trouncing big corporate plays so well in the US especially, but in real life such victories are extremely rare. Normally the big corp wins purely by means of attrition.Disney is up to other shenanigans as well, but that's another story.
