    What if senator Palpatine choked on an olive on Naboo?

    Armitage Hux was the First Order's equivalent of Joseph Goebbels- a brilliant orator and propagandist with a flair for political theatre but a rubbish tactician. He should never have been in charge of the fleet. More to the point, what would have happened if his father Brendol Hux was still alive?

    One thing I would have liked to see is if Mace Windu was still alive and formed his own iteration of the Jedi, one even more martial than the previous iteration. A force of crusading knights set on an eternal Jihad against the forces of darkness and how this would have contrasted with Luke's Gnostic and monastic interpretation of the Jedi creed.

    - Son with Rey
    - Kill Rey
    - Establish a new empire and train son
    - Son kills Ben (he never forgave Ben for killing his mom)
    - Son is new emperor
    - Baby Yoda (by now grown) kills emperor

    + Optional: Force sensitive meta - frog assassinates Baby Yoda, avenging his species genocide in the hands of the hungry Baby.

    On a more serious note:

    - Rey and Ben get together
    - Rey and Ben have a child or children
    - Ben goes missing (either because of a mission or he's still hunted/haunted by his deeds and thus by other people who want to see him dead)
    - Ben's daughter/son is looking for her/his dad
    => set up for EPX

    So we keep :
    - Rey and Ben get together
    - Rey and Ben have a child or children

    This bit seems hard : "by other people who want to see him dead", because of the Force Dyad thing. If others capture him or if he lands in a threatening situation, he will just Viber Call Rey, and let her know, where he is. There is no "go missing" for Ben without him wanting to. Now, if Ben decides to "go missing" then Rey will surely go looking for him, and I don't think she could stay put and allow for her children to go.

    We can have her daughter become more powerful than any Jedi before, truly combining the Skywalker and Palpatine bloodline, and the son attacking her sister out of jealousy (he only got the Skywalker power). This would sell well, and also save our cars from being burned, which will surely happen if we decided the other way around.

    Maybe Ben doesn't want to get found because he wants to protect his family. Just take the plot of 'Pirates of the Carribean 5' => Will Tuner and his son. Haha!

    Ver 3.0

    - Rey and Ben get together
    - Rey and Ben have a child or children
    - Ben leaves on a mission to look into reports claiming the Sith are resurfacing, but goes missing. Rey tries to reach out to him, but she can't because Ben has shut himself from the force. She doesn't know why and fears for the worst, but the truth is that Ben fears the evil corruptible forces he is battling with, may "spill over" and try to take over Rey because they are a Force Dyad.
    - Rey uses all available resources to organize a search for Ben. The twins disobey their mother and go looking for their father to Korriban which is the last known location of Ben
    - Twins run into tons of problems at the Valley of the Dark Lords, battling Sith ghosts and constantly being tempted by the dark side
    - Twins reach the temple they believe their farther was in. Before they enter, they contact their mother. Signal is breaking up, with Rey telling them to stay out and wait for her. They disobey her and enter the temple while Rey immediately grabs a fighter and heads for Korriban

    -Ending 1 : Movie ends, with the twins finding their father welcoming them with bright Sith yellow eyes, and Rey exiting hyperspace above Korriban.
    -Ending 2 : Movie ends, with the twins finding their father in a room kneeling before an unknown Sith master saying "They will join us or die" (bright Sith yellow eyes burning), and Rey exiting hyperspace above Korriban.

    Now, do I get a beer for that or not ?

    Almost.

    Ben wouldn't turn to the dark side.

    Ending (considering your ending): The kids find their father. An evil being helds him hostage. The kids rescue their father, but then the villain attacks them. Ben Solo sacrifices himself to save his children. But he kinda fails. One of the twins gets taken by the villain. The other twin can escape.
    In the second movie the twins will meet each other again though - the sister a Jedi, the brother a Sith.

    What if fans could clear their minds of all the speculation and theorizing they do between films and just let the story flow through them?
