So this story starts in the main character's childhood. He witnesses Imperial police be horrible to his best friend who is an alien. This fills the main character with rage and passion. When he is old enough he joins the Rebellion/Resistance and becomes an awesome soldier and X-Wing pilot. He participates in several battles and he is responsible for turning the tide in many of them. He receives the highest awards. At the end of the movie he fights the Imperial officer who hurt his friend now promoted to general or commander of a star destroyer and defeats him in an epic showdown.
Would this storyline be too controversial?
I was thinking the plot would remind people of police brutality.
