The Great EU Shake-up. What could you live without?

So, if rumours are true the EU could be getting drastically cut down to size.

I was wondering what novels or other EU material you would be okay with if it were dropped from Star Wars canon?

The Clone Wars series. As far as I'm concerned, that never happened. Also Galaxy of Fear series and that one with the kid (Ken? I think?). The latter I didn't think was cannon anyway.

The newer Clone Wars series? I haven't watched it, still.

 

Crystal Star can be quietly swept under the rug...

I could probably do without all the stuff after NJO, including the Legacy comic series.

Did you not enjoy it then? I still haven't read it all.

Wasn't the biggest fan of Dark Nest, but I didn't dislike it either. I definitely would be sad if the NJO itself got canned, but unfortunately it is also one of the series that probably causes the most headaches for the movie scriptwriting team.

Sacrifice?

 

 

Haha, in all seriousness... I'm not sure. All the EU novels I've read, I enjoyed. Some more than others, obviously. But they all have their various contributions, I think, to the overall canon.

 

 

 

Even if part or the entire EU has to be considered AU instead after Ep. 7, it doesn't mean I'll enjoy it less. Or stop reading it. Depending on the story, I may like it more than the film, haha.

Now that I've been thinking more, I could do without the whole "let's make Jacen a Darth Vader clone and turn him to the dark side" arc. The one good thing to come out of it was Ben Skywalker being old enough to have an impact on the narrative. Which of course lead to snarky Ben in the Fate of the Jedi novels. I like Snarky!Ben.

I enjoyed them but, if a line had to be drawn, I would be ok with a fresh start after NJO. The constant "let's have the government, that they worked so hard to establish, sith on the Jedi Order" theme was getting tiresome.

*contemplates*

 

There were many moments that stood out. Not as epic as NJO, I think. Then again, it was a very long time since I last read NJO. The new series' were good. I'd say read away!

Sometimes, I wonder what I'd do if I turned around in my chair, away from the computer and came face to face with a weeping angel standing right behind me... :p

It's stone, right?  Let me walk backwards into the workroom and get a mallet and hammer... ;)

Print off a picture of the weeping angel and hang it up in front of the real one. Forever quantum locked.

 

Anyway. Off-topic. ;)
