Star Wars is a franchise that has an astronomical reach. And back when that reach was still growing, there was a tremendous amount of variety in the types of video games being made under the Star Wars banner.

But now that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has released and created a solid Hero's Journey in the Star Wars universe, we had to ask: what's next? We discuss the possibilities of a more open Star Wars licence and take a dip into the Question Bucket on this week's Waypoint Radio. You can read an excerpt and listen to the full episode below.
