  1. Going to have to agree with you there.
  2. It is actually not EU: it's all on the same level of canonicity with the films (though there is an obvious disconnect between the people making the films and the people making the other materials. The former does not seem to care about the latter, despite initial claims to the contrary). I know that lack of a term encompassing everything aside from the movies makes conversation frustrating, and I'm perfectly fine with people using made-up terms like "new EU," to your point, it is not EU. The EU, by technical definition, was the old canon, now rebranded "Legends." What I was referring to spe
  3. I'd say that ship sailed a long time ago.
  4. You're right; I concede. No point in arguing.
  5. This right here encapsulates the entirety of what is wrong with you. You can't judge something you know nothing about. If you actually knew the context, it makes perfect sense and is perfectly in line with what Obi-Wan says. The way it does it directly correlates to this. Without the Force, even the ysalamiri couldn't exist, and couldn't interact with it the way they do. Apparently, the ysalamiri exist within the new canon now as well. So yeah, there's that.
  6. Okay, I guess camp may have been the wrong term. I guess I'm really going for that cheesy factor. It abounds in the cantina scene and Jabba's palace. Yoda is a freaking muppet! He's even voiced by the co-creator and principle voice actor on The Muppets and Sesame Street. The things you have a problem with, like Force-driven (or anti-Force) animals . . . I just don't see why you have such a huge problem with these things. I can understand why they may not be your cup of tea, but I don't see why they're so egregious in your mind.
  7. Also, yes, that is true about C'Baoth. Zahn also originally intended the Noghri to be Sith, explaining how Vader was Dark Lord of the Sith, but Lucas shot that one down as well. He went on to supply Zahn with all the lore from his early drafts and backstories, the roleplaying game, and the early Marvel comics so that the narrative would remain consistent.
  8. I said it in another thread and I'll say it again: Star Wars is campy as fuck. Really, watch the original Trilogy without your nostalgia goggles on and you'll see what I mean. Rereading the early EU doesn't feel at all out of place to me and seems to very much understand the essence of what Star Wars was at the time. The Disney stuff does not. Even Rogue One, which I thoroughly enjoy and accept as part of the EU, seems to miss the mark.
  9. I don't know if that really counts toward your point. Just because Palleon says it doesn't make it true. It's established that Palleon idolizes Thrawn the same way Watson idolizes Holmes. Therefore, it's possible that Thrawn would have defeated the Rebels at Endor but the validity of that statement is still ambiguous.
  10. Actually, all of the new canon books Zahn has written so far have been carefully written around EU continuity, so they can fit into either canon ("Legends" or Disney). I own them all but have only read the first, which was very good. The same applies to James Luceno's novel Tarkin: part of Disney canon but written to be able to fit within EU continuity, albeit with a bit of imagination. That also was an enjoyable read. We may not technically be getting new "Legends" materials, but as long as these guys keep writing, it's as if we are. Unofficially, of course. There also others that were not
  11. I am unaware of any Star Wars/DC crossover plans, but even if there were, they would have fallen under the "Infinities" category, which was basically just a category that was set outside EU continuity where authors could color outside the lines and have fun. One such example includes the infamous comic short "Skippy the Jedi Droid."
  12. 36, male, Ambridge. Ambridge, Pennsylvania used to be a bustling hub of various ethnic communities having settled straight off the boat, and has continued its beloved Nationality Days summer food festival all the way up until at least two years ago, as far as I know. However, it is slowly becoming a ghetto with little to recommend it.
  13. I don't think the Jedi have casual sex. It just doesn't sit right with me. Yes, we have exceptions where Jedi had families, but it always had do with with life. Sexual gratification for the sake of itself seems rather selfish and not at all in line with Jedi principles. Then again, that's just my take on it.
