Yeah two years does seem like a long time to wait. Hopefully it will be worth the wait. I really don't like the idea of CG, and would take classic anaimation anyday over the CG stuff.
The wait period could also be due to Hasbro having the license till 2018, perhaps they want to stretch out the product for as long as it will sell. After all in '95 when the line started up we were getting word of Star Wars being re-released in the movies with new scenes. If ROTS is truely the last movie of the saga, that means only special editions and the #d version will be the only Star Wars to hit the theaters. No new movies means product dries up.
TV related merchandise is the next step. Looking back on the vintage Kenner line, the Droids and Ewok cartoons were a last ditch effort to keep the interest. If the live action and cartoon doesn't catch the attention then the product will die as well.
