Then in a New hope, his hood is finally removed and we see the old man our hero has become, being beckoned for one more journey. Obi-Wan's character was one of the few things OT and PT can agree was done well, they should start screwing around with it too much.
Theres enough of a story to tell they wouldn't need to have him running about. Theres the Hutts, the Sarlacc Pit, the scum and slave traders thriving in the cities, the Sand People, Krayt Dragons, how Owen refused Luke learn the ways of the force, how Qui-Gon teaches him the way of immortality, and how Ben Kenobi establishes himself in the desert. Theres pleanty of Star Warsy things on this planet, and given that it's just a spin off, theres no reason it can't be different.
These are thing you may want to see, but what about mass appeal? They will stick with the basic outline of the other movies...mark my words...Look at your James Bond movies, they have stuck with the formula thru 20+ movies, this won't change either...
