It makes sense to me.
The Darth Bane trilogy makes a lot of sense out of it. The Sith before the rule of two had become a bloated, bureacratic mess. Darth Bane used a scorched earth policy to start anew and work in the background ninja-style to exert the most infuence over the galaxy. In the context of the movies, Palpatine was a master working behind the scenes to set up the clone wars as a front to kill off the Jedi and take over as Emperor.

Even with the rule of two, there were always others lurking to step in. Bane's apprentice secretly had an apprentice.

According to what appears to be a casting breakdown, Bad Robot, Lucasfilm and Disney are looking to fill seven new roles. The first three could be filled by the mid-1970s versions of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher:

1) Man Early 20s. Not classically handsome. He is witty and smart. Physically fit.

2) Man Late 20s. Physically fit, handsome and confident.

3) Woman late teens. Physically fit, independent and with a great sense of humor.

Then there’s this:

4) Man 65-75 Tough and opinionated.

Alec Guiness was 63 in 1977.

5) Man 30ish An intellectual.

So they’re finally sticking a nerd in “Star Wars”? This is the only character among the seven who can be fat.

6) Man 40s Physically fit, military type.

A military type in a film with “Wars” in the title!

7) Woman late teens. Tough, smart, physically fit.

A female Biggs Darklighter to serve as BFF to character 3?

The casting breakdown was apparently first posted at Schmoes Knows.

The Rule of Two doesn't bother me and actually makes quite a bit of sense, IMO.
The rule of two and it's origins are fully explained in Darth Bane: Path of Destruction.

But just read the wiki page on it and you'll get the idea.

Bane killed all the Sith of the time and was able to disappear fooling the Jedi into the belief that all the Sith had been destroyed.

SW needs more Sith stuff. The Sith are fascinating and entertaining to adults, and to kids who hate Gungans. More Sith = WIN.

The empire strikes back: Disney readies a major Hollywood Studios expansion at Walt Disney World

Written by Robert Niles
Published: June 13, 2013 at 3:43 PM

The Walt Disney Company invested a reported $1 billion remaking its under-performing California Adventure theme park, and was rewarded with an attendance surge of 23% last year, following the debut of the remake's centerpiece Cars Land. After that, the president of the Disneyland Resort, George Kalogridis, was reassigned to Florida, where he's now overseeing the Walt Disney World Resort.
Get ready for history to repeat itself. It looks as though Kalogridis and his team have gotten the green light for a project to remake the Disney's Hollywood Studios park on a scale similar to what Disney just finished at California Adventure.


The projects will share one very large component -- Cars Land, the highlight of the California Adventure makeover, will come to Florida as part of the Hollywood Studios revamp, according to multiple insider sources. But it won't necessarily be the highlight of the changes coming to the park.

That's because Disney's Hollywood Studios is also getting…

Star Wars Land.

Yep. Multiple sources have told me the long-awaited dream of theme park geeks everywhere is actually happening. Disney's moving ahead with both Cars Land and Star Wars Land at the Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.

From what I'm hearing, Cars Land will replace the Lights, Motors, Action auto stunt show as well as Catastrophe Canyon on the southern edge of the park, providing a logical extension to the existing Pixar Place. The demise of the Backstage Tour also would free up space for an additional attraction in Pixar Place (Monsters Inc? Incredibles?), but I've not yet heard any chatter about that happening in this phase of the park remake.

So what about Star Wars Land? The logical places for that expansion would be on either side of the existing Star Tours ride. From what I've heard, it appears that the expansion would take out the area between Star Tours and the auto stunt show stadium, including the Muppet theater and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids play area. But I've also heard of consideration of going in the opposite direction, which would place the new land on the site of the Backlot Express restaurant and Indiana Jones stunt show theater. Given that the Indy theater's used for several other events throughout the year, and that both the Muppets and Honey I Shrunk the Kids attractions long ago passed the height of their popularity, I'm hearing more forceful arguments for the first option.

This appears to be a five-year project, putting completion in 2018, though Disney could choose to throw money at it and accelerate it by a year.

Imagine a future Disney's Hollywood Studios with Star Wars Land, Cars Land and Pixar Place anchoring the southern half of the park, with Sunset Boulevard, featuring Tower of Terror and Rock 'n Roller Coaster, anchoring the north end. After many months of Universal Orlando pummeling Disney with one popular new expansion after another -- Harry Potter, Transformers, Springfield, and more Harry Potter -- it appears that Disney might, finally, be ready to strike back.
Supposedly there will be a Mos Eisley cantina restaurant as well.

In the past, the mantra of LucasFilm has been that if it didn't occur in the films, it wasn't "canon". So, if that directive remains, everything that's ever happened in the EU is not only irrelevant, it never existed in the Star Wars universe.

I don't recall if it was this thread or another similar thread, but there have been some pretty dopey things happen in the EU that will hopefully never see screen time. Some of those books have been downright awful.

What truly sucks about that is that the prequels were complete and utter dogshit. Now they are canon.

Correct me if I'm wrong though, wasn't the graphic novel Dark Empire actually included in the canon by Lucas himself? Seems like I had heard that somewhere.

At the time, he said if he were going to go forward beyond Jedi, that would be close to the story he would write. But, that was a LONG time ago.
