I've enjoyed the EU novels and would be very disappointed if they simply disavowed them. It would make me a lot less likely to buy any other EU novels or comics knowing that they might simply be erased from the continuity at some point in the future.

I see your OT Ewoks and raise you... with:
- battle droids (and their ridiculous voices.. most notably in EpIII)
- pod racers (e.g. Sebulba and his antics)
- anakin being a child actor in the first movie

dWhisper wrote:Hopefully the EU doesn't turn into what the Trek books basically are, bad novelizations of existing stories (a surprising amount of the books) or retcons to fix bad decisions (everything to do with Enterprise and Voyager). The EU isn't exactly great quality at times, but it does what the name suggestions, and works to "Expand" the universe. Any of the Trek books I've read just felt like going on name and not doing much to really expand the Trek universe.

Yes. So very, very wrong.

The next three were the Thrawn Trilogy, those where awesome. I have read that series multiple times and think it is the best non OT trilogy. Ok, so the Force Salamanders where a bit weird, but Thrawn was real bada$$.
