This is where a lot of our contention is with moving on from The Last Crusade. I mean he finds the grail...Clearly in the writing it's communicated that the blood lust for artifacts will kill you.(We on the RPF should learn that lesson as well...lol) That is why after being healed by the grail, Indy's dad tells him to "let it go". His father spent his whole life searching for the artifact only to discover that the true meaning behind it was with a realtionship with his son. As Indy is reaching out for the "object" , Dad is holding on to son. He saves him. They save each other and get to ride off into the sunset together on a new course together(by the grace of God). Tell me, what can be greater than that? What more does Indy need at that point? He gets to go out, literally on top. Do i think he just sat around with Dad and drank coffee until he passed? No. But, i do think they started spending a heck of a lot more time togther after all that happened. From a story tellers point of view and the audiences'...i thought it was a perfect ending. We have closure, and that closure gives us warmth in our hearts.
Having Indy go back and start feeding his lust for the objects again make this seem all for nothing...just like they did with moving beyond ROTJ by nullifying Darth Vaders sacrifice in the ST.(Just using this as an example).

You get it. Why can't they?
Yes Star Wars Sequels and further Indy adventures could be awesome, but all we have gotten is crap.
I have no problem with an older Indy as well. Goodness Harrison Ford looks better at 80 than I look and feel at 51. If they were good it would be awesome.
Since all involved have lost their talent or have none, let it go.
I knew we were in trouble with KOTCS as we already had the prequels, and Sean Connery said if anything could get him out of retirement, another Indy could, and then he passed. I know he said retirement is too much fun, but I think he was being diplomatic. He read it and said no!
Karen Allen was great but that is the only thing.
On the clothing let's be clear:
Indy's clothes are perfect, classic, and never out of style. If they did not have him in them heads would roll.
I have no clue why he no longer carries his gun and has his satchel on the wrong side and on the outside of his jacket, but whatever.
Anything after Last Crusade I will ask God to delete from my memory in Heaven, if I get in.
Along with lots of other stuff.
