I agree that the Thrawn Trilogy would have been boring onscreen, but I think had they gone the route of using the kids of Luke, Mara Jade, Han and Leia from the EU it could have been awesome to see. Had Jacen and Jaina Solo along with Ben Skywalker been the main characters we could have seen a truly awesome story with Jacen turning to the dark side and killing Luke's wife and eventually his fall by the hands of his sister would have been a great trilogy.
