Quote from: Pasta Chick on April 25, 2016, 02:01:02 PM^ I'm hoping Disney is going to get deeper into some of the "grey" plot lines of EU (like a mercenary hired by the rebellion turning to the Empire) rather than the black and white Vader=bad; Luke=good. I think that was a powerful tool for the first movie, but as soon as the story starts to expand it becomes nonsensical and boring. I think that's part of why the prequals were so terrible. They didn't really make sense.

I read a bunch too, but I stopped after the New Jedi Order because I didn't feel like there was much more original that could be done (and from what I heard, I was right). And I was a little sad that it got tossed, but admittedly the quality varied a lot; there were some great stories and characters introduced, and then some shit like Barbara Hambly.
