FFG posts Star Wars RPG info

Blah. From their website:

Star Wars: Edge of the Empire is the first of three epic roleplaying game installments. Each will be a standalone core rulebook, but will complement the other two to form a single game system. Each of these three planned core rulebooks presents the Star Wars galaxy from a different point of view, and they all take place during the height of the Rebel Alliance’s struggle against the Galactic Empire.

Star Wars: Edge of the Empire is the first of these installments, focusing on the fringes of society, the scum and villainy of the galaxy, and the explorers and colonists of the Outer Rim. In this game, players take on the roles of hard-hearted bounty hunters, roguish scoundrels, charming smugglers, or fearless explorers trying to survive and thrive on the edges of civilization. 

In the second installment, Star Wars: Age of Rebellion, the players take the fight to the oppressive Galactic Empire as cunning spies, cocky pilots, and dedicated soldiers in the Rebel Alliance.

Finally, in Star Wars: Force and Destiny, the players become figures of legend: the last surviving Force users in the galaxy. Hunted by the Empire, they must stay alive, and more importantly, stay true to the ideals of their forebears—the fabled Jedi. Each of these independent game lines stands alone as a unique gaming experience while fully integrating with the others to form a single unified system.

So it's going to be set up just like the 40K rpg. I don't like this at all. Especially the fact that the Jedi and Sith are going to be held back for at least a year, probably two. 
Oh yeah, it's going to have "unique, custom dice" that you will need to play. What the fuck?! Not another game going this route! What the hell is wrong with six-siders?! I'm betting it's going to be something right out of their board games, which will probably end up being a crap system. I just went from kind-of-excited to completely not interested in this game. I won't be surprised when it fails, hard.
