WOTC Discontinuing Star Wars

The announcement has come out that WotC is not renewing the Star Wars license.

From WotC's Director of Marketing"
There have been several questions lately regarding the future of the Star Wars Miniatures and Roleplaying Game and until now I haven’t had definitive answers to give you. After a lengthy evaluation, Wizards of the Coast has decided not to renew the Star Wars license with Lucasfilm. We’ve had a long and fantastic run, but with the economic downturn, we have made the tough decision to discontinue our Star Wars lines.

WotC did a good job of cranking out product to support Star Wars but did a poor job of hyping that product. And while I am disappointed, there really isn't much left to do. The only real period that hasn't been covered is from after the Battle of Endor through the Second Galactic Civil War, and while there may be plenty of fluff material from this time frame, I don't see much more crunch.

Hopefully some fans will compile indexes of feats, talents and powers that appear spread across the multitude of books. That would be useful.
