** There was also a script by PeterDavid where the point of divergence was that the first robot Luke picks up from the Jawas doesn't blow a gasket, and thus he never buys R2-D2 and never hears Leia's recorded message. [[WordOfGod According to David himself]], the script was not picked up because it did not fulfill the requirement that the Empire has to lose in the end, regardless of whatever else happens differently. They also objected to the ending, which saw Leia becoming a Sith Lord and [[BrotherSisterIncest taking on Luke as her consort]] (since neither one knew they were related).

Added DiffLines:

* The night the ComicBook/{{Venom}} symbiont found Eddie Brock, it was wounded and dying, and drawn to Brock, who was contemplating suicide and praying for forgiveness for the act. In the long run, the symbiont bonding with him saved his life and ultimately led him to redemption, but if Brock had not been in ''that'' place at ''that'' time, the Earth would likely have been spared ''all'' atrocities committed by symbiont-infected killers, Carnage most of all.

*** [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall In a nice touch,]] the highly trained Force users can ''sense'' that things are not as they should be, though they don't quite know what is going on. They just know the Force is going ''nuts''.

*** [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall In a nice touch,]] the highly trained Force users can ''sense'' that things are not as they should be, though they don't quite know what is going on. They just know the Force is going ''nuts''. Also interesting, each scenario still results in the forces of Good defeating Evil, just with the plots changed significantly. (In fact, each ending may have actually been ''better'' [[BittersweetEnding if slightly bittersweet]].)
