->[Creator/GeorgeLucas] had made ''Franchise/StarWars'' because he had dreamed of movies like those he'd seen in his youth. He made it into a trilogy because he dreamed of an independent film-maker's paradise in Skywalker Ranch. He had risked ''everything,'' sacrificed so much, given up six years of his life in order to make this dream a reality. But in the end... all he had was a building. The facility was so state-of-the-art that the only ones who could use it were big Hollywood film-makers, not little independents, and its remoteness, no doubt meant to encourage the Northern California film industry, instead discouraged people from making the long trip there. Skywalker Ranch would be used, but mostly by Lucasfilm to serve their own film-making needs and really only because it was already there and, of course, could not be sold. And in his attempt to fulfill this dream, so many people were gone now: Creator/FrancisFordCoppola, Gary Kurtz, Charles Lippincott, John Dykstra, [=Ralph McQuarrie=]... Marcia Lucas. And there remained George Lucas. His friends and colleagues wanted to make ''Film/CitizenKane'', but Lucas? He ''lived it.'' After that, he was done.

->'''Kira:''' This war is over. You lost.
->'''Founder:''' Have I? I think you'll find that neither the Jem'Hadar or the Breen will agree with that assessment. They will fight to the last man.
->'''Kira:''' And what will that accomplish?
->'''Founder:''' Isn't it obvious? You may win this war, Commander; but I promise you, when it is over, you will have lost so many ships, so many lives, that your victory will taste as bitter as defeat.

->''I mean, anybody who has beaten this [[NintendoHard incredibly hard]] piece of shit will not have any sense of satisfaction, but rather regrets, because it is a complete waste of fuckin' time. I mean, it's like coming out of a brutal fight, being the winner, but achieving nothing for all your troubles but some bloody bruises and broken bones. It's just not worth it.''
