Innovation isn't creation, and we only go from where we have been before. Honestly, I'd see that time slashed to 5 years, 10 max.

Agreed, it isn't.
A company can be entirely innovative without needing the Star Wars universe. I actually can't think of a good reason why anyone should have the right to put Luke and Han Solo in something.

What's the benefit?

Take FTL. Would FTL be better if it were Star Wars themed?
How about Orcs Must Die? Would making the main character Legolas have resulted in a better, more enjoyable game?

Because it would have been stupid for the designers not to have done that, as it would have increased sales. But it would also make those games less special, because they'd be just another fucking Star Wars game.

I prefer people make their own worlds than cluster around someone else's often shitty yet somehow popular vision.
