I love how it’s either you’ve read all the EU or none of it with you, Cowgirl David. More Sith absolute mentality. As I’ve said several times, I’ve read many stories from all eras of the EU, it would take me too much time to name them all here when that’s not even the discussion. I can’t simply say I’ve read all of an era like Raos can. However, I have also said I do prefer the stories before the OT than the ones after, from Darth Bane to Clone Wars content.
I don’t know why you people can’t understand there are highs and lows with both canons. The Yuuzhan Vong was a real low point in my opinion. Just a stupid concept for villains, never worked for me. I liked every story with A’Sharad Hett until they brought him back as Darth Krayt. I thought Palpatine coming back was handled poorly in both canons. Can you really say you liked every EU story you read? Of course not. The only difference is you think the lows are better in the EU than anything Disney has put out, and I don’t. A simple difference of opinion, we can leave it at that.
I stopped reading the EU the moment George deleted the Clone Wars EU for his own stories and haven’t touched them since. It showed me he never really took the EU seriously. I will always take George’s vision on Star Wars over anyone else’s. After Disney bought it and wiped the EU I really haven’t read much of anything Star Wars.
