Been a few years since I last posted a poll like this. Just wondering members' attitudes toward the Expanded Universe (EU) and prequel trilogy.

For the record, I voted "All movies + selected EU"

I really like some of the EU stuff, in particular the TZ sequel books.

I'd have to go movie's only though. Only because the EU continually re-invents itself.

Red Metal

I went movies only. And more specifically, the live action movies, as you could count the CW movie if you just say "movie".

Personally, I've tried to watch the CW series and aside from the '04 stuff, I just can't stand it. As for EU, I've also tried to get into and very little really sticks for me aside from the '90s books. Once the PT took over and everyone was trying to write SW stuff, I think something got lost.

There are some who think the prequels should have been more like The Clone Wars, so thought I'd cater to them. Guess they're in a small minority (so far!)

Had to go selected eu coz I tend to edit it in my head and I too dislike the clone wars cartoon continunity as basically it contradicts not only other sources but also the films.

Looks great some great new characters but just poor overall.

Original Trilogy and some EU (Shadows of the Empire, Thrawn Trilogy etc.) are the ones that feel like SW for me.

Still I watch/read everything including PT, CW and other EU, but those are just like some kind of extras, like a parallel universe.

The EU is a big deal for me, due to computer games/comics etc alongside the films when I was younger, but it was all EU spawned from the OT era. Don't mind PT existing but I'm not bothered as it doesn't have the same draw to me, so I end up liking OT + OT EU + Kotor stuff. Not encountered Legacy yet.

Because I have been extremely disappointed with the Eps I-III, I decided to write my own canon. But also have been recently exposed to some of the EU I am open to that as well. But the main story needs serious revision in it's early stages in my opinion.

The origin of Anakin - crap!!!
The the additional information about the force in Eps I - III, crap!
The seduction of Anakin - crap!!! (the whole story of Anakin before Vader is all major crap IMHO).
Most of the Jedi being wasted by Clones - big huge turd.
The fact that Vader did not hunt down the Jedi and become more "Vader" through limb loss and battle scares in exterminating the Jedi - total hairy and runny crap!!!!

I have other revisions in my head, but that list hits my major discrepancies with what Lucas did with the story. In early interviews he told a different story (in the details) from the ones he eventually put to film. Shame, what he hinted sounded a lot better, or I just completely misunderstood him as a kid. But most of my revisions are based on what I believe he alluded to in interviews.

There has been some good stuff in the CW cartoons, but again anything pertaining to the force and how Lucas has flushed that out is garbage in my mind.

09-24-2012, 08:33 PM

The Original Trilogy.

I enjoy the CW and parts of the PT, but I can take 'em or leave 'em. I don't even bother with the the EU.




And Boba Fett died a wimpy death in the belly of a giant plant. End of story.

Pre-OT EU is ok with me. Post OT EU is the ca ca est. Worse than the PT even.

DarthTrafford
09-24-2012, 08:40 PM
All the movies(yes I grew up with the OT) and I like the PT as well.
I like the Clone Wars shows and select EU.
I played a few of the older video games,none of the newer ones.
I read a lot of the books as well as some "Young Jedi books" those were pretty cool too.If Sideshow continues to put out EU characters that I know and like,like Thrawn I'll buy them.

I seem to remember really taking my first notice of Fett as an "impotant" character around the time the Tales of the Bounty Hunters was done in the mid 90's. Before then he was just some doucher who fell in a hole, at least to me :dunno

Yeah, that's when I seemed to notice more of a focus on Fett. I mean he clearly had some importance given he was one of the few also made into a 12" figure. But like you I never gave him a lot of thought :huh

Could not agree more. In fact, the general outline of Phantom Menace ie blockades and political struggle I can deal with, but the movie is horrible. I do enjoy myself some Maul though.

I really got into the character of Fett and the others from Tales of the Bounty Hunters book.

DPrime
09-25-2012, 07:13 AM
I'm gonna go with movies + Clone Wars. I don't really have a problem with the story in the prequels (for the most part). It's really just how that story is presented...

But as far as the "history" and all that goes, it generally works for me, although I might gloss over some details here and there (e.g. midichlorians).

JonEl

I remember people freaking out that the figure would have a firing rocket, and I want to say that was before the movie came out. It was before I got to see it, anyway.

He was much cooler looking on screen than he was in the ad photo. I think that was the first time I got to see a figure first. At 5 years old, it gave me a new appreciation for how awesome everything on screen actually was.

galactiboy
09-25-2012, 12:18 PM

Voted OT only. I did enjoy some of the books years before the PT came out but it was so long ago I can barely remember anything from them.

I disregard the PT completely. I think TPM is an enjoyable adventure film and I can enjoy it as such because I find it easiest to disconnect it from Star Wars. I like some of the action in AOTC but I can honestly say I don't enjoy anything at all about ROTS, it is awful IMO. And as Clone Wars and a lot of EU draws extensively from the PT its all out the window far as I'm concerned.

Thats just me.

I grew up on OT so that's my bible. But I have mixed feelings about PT and hated EU for the longest time. I really wanted to like the PT but they were really bad. Its kind of a love hate thing for me. I love the character designs and that some are from the OT (Obi, Yoda, Palps) but the rest is hard to swallow. Sometimes I enjoy them other times I dispose them. Honestly I see PT as EU. Really unorganized, disconnected EU. I think I was just do desperate for more STAR WARS I told myself I liked it for a long time so some of that still lingers in my mind. I want to say I don't like it cause it's crap but I'm afraid to admit that maybe I do like it.

The best EU hands down has Luke Skywalker. That's real for me. Any story where Luke gets to kick some ass I'm all about.

CW is ok but hard to take seriously. '04 CW rocked.

Karen Travis's novels are great EU for anyone who has not delved into this realm.

I used to see SW through rose colored glasses. As if the OT was all I could see and that I was comfortable in my narrow view. Once I started reading EU I couldn't stop. Especially the audio books. Wow. They really come to life. Now I feel like I've taken my first step into a larger world. That the world of star wars is so vast I could never define or diminish it. If all we ever see is the screen then it's such a small window into the great universe we will be missing all that's out there. Don't limit yourself on one of the greatest adventures in history.

I agree completely with this. Growing up on the original trilogy, I see those as the entrance into this grand universe that has been added to by Lucas and all the others who have written, filmed, drawn and programmed new stories into the SW world. I can pick the ones that I enjoy to be a part of it, and that is what makes SW so great; that everyone can collectively enjoy it but it is still personal. There is something so special about a fan base that can be limited or so expanded.

The movies. Even the poopy ones.

I'm not a PT fan, but like 'em or not they're canon. Nothing else really is, though.

Hell, I prefer KOTOR over the prequels, but it isn't canon. They are.

Now, if you ask what my favorite element of the saga is and what I feel is quintessential Star Wars then it's the unaltered Original Trilogy, hands-down. But ironically the unaltered OT films themselves are not even technically canon anymore since they've been retconned.

Technically, anything that's not classed as N-canon (non-canon) by Lucasfilm can be considered canon, unless or until it conflicts with G-canon (George canon). That includes most videogames, novels, comics etc.

I'm one of the few fans who cuts George some slack with the special editions, because I know he was very limited in what he could do the first time round. The only bits that really annoy me are Greedo shooting first, and George flip-flopping on whether Luke screams as he plummets down the Cloud City shaft.

I’ll go with movies only. I lean more to the original trilogy era. That was I saw on VHS back on my early teens, so it has more sentimental value to me; the look and feel of the OT, no computer fx. Don’t get me wrong computer are a huge plus on today’s movies but sometimes they focus more on them than the story/plot.
The PT are what they are they have good parts and bad parts, but they are fun to watch and they are not going to be forgotten easily like let’s say ‘Highlander 2’ (what’s that? Yeah right)

Just my 2 cents

I will always be an OT fan over PT. I grew up with OT. The PT isnt as well made, but it's GL's story and thats the way it is. back in the old days when there was no explanations for stuff and the West End games RPG changed that I lived by one rule and one rule only:

It's cannon until George says otherwise. I enjoy SW for what it is. Don't have the time or inclination to ***** about it.

Funny thing about the EU. It can improve some things. Like Anakin Building C-3p0 was retconned by the EU. He DIDN'T build him. He simply found the remains of an almost complete protocol droid skeleton inside watto's junk yard. he found it in a crate watto accuired as part of a massive purchase.
It was Something watto didn't know he had. so he Smuggled the droid out of watto's shop, piece by piece, and reassembled it at home. It takes a little under a year to get it to the point it's at in Phantom menace. He reassembles the droid, and gives it a memory wipe.


The micro series was infinitely better than the current series!!

Micro series still exists in-canon in parts. But it's now considered to be "propaganda films" made during the clone war.


I will say though, how they handle the future for Ashoka could change my opinion, if it doesn't work for me I may have to have two levels of canon

Calling it now. Ashoka dies. Assaj Kills her. Anakin flips out and kills assaj. Similar to the obi-wan, qui-gon, darth maul fight in Phantom menace. This serves to further push anakin over the edge.

The issue I have with the ce now is it just doesn't sit alongside the eu I've already committed to. It's a shame because it could of been so good and some of the elements have been. The micro series could've seen as having a couple of duff elements is the mace episode. But it was superior and despite my demnd for more the eu needs to be limited or just what had happened happens. Just too much forced in and it just falls over.

The only SW video game I ever owned, was 'TPM' RPG on PS1.

It was awesome! :cool:

Empire Strikes Back; Star Wars; then Return of the Jedi.

Are only a teeny tiny part of star wars.



Finished your incomplete sentence for you.

OT before Lucas started stuffing around with them. The PT does not exist in my world. Even the thought of it makes me sweat, and grind my teeth in an equal mixture of rage and disgust.

All the movies, though the phantom menace was by FAR the worst of all of them. I do like everything in the cannon just have not had the time to watch it all.

I'd say movies, most Clone Wars and most Extended Universe.

I don't pay any attention to the small children's books like Choose Your Own Adventure-type things or Scholastic readers, but I do read and enjoy the novels from The Old Republic through the Legacy era. I enjoy some of The Clone Wars stories. I really like some of the Dark Horse stuff and what John Jackson Miller has done.

That said, I do have some real problems with things like Darth Maul returning from the dead (and horribly bad novels like The Crystal Star) and will intentionally try to ignore some of those stories...
