2017 for Nintendo - Good, Great or just okay

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

OzGamer - I'm with you bro! Plus episode one had the most bad-ass villain ever: Darth Maul. I wish he survived. When he first fell down the shaft I was like "he'll be back" and then I saw him split in two and I was like "nope - he's done" In the new Disney canon, Maul did surviv...
