Yes, Cube City is a very nice concept... But why did they have to bring it into an existing planet? Sad

Yeah, same here. I don't find anything wrong with the cube concept. It's just a horrible idea for the Mandos. Confused

It makes me wonder if that's just a moon of Mandalore though...

Your mind is a scary place, Fatalfist. Shocked

Actually Jedi Joe, if you look at the concept art there is another celestial body in the background. I'm not an astronomer, but judging by our planet and moon, but it would make sense for a moon to be uninhabitable while the planet (which has some details on it) is. I don't want to get my hopes up, but that could definately be a way to resolve this whole mess.

Yea, it looks kinda big to be a moon too. So it just might be Mandalore in the backround. Maybe Cube City was created by the more tech savvy Mandos.

But if such were the case, it wouldn't have hurt Karen's continuity, and she wouldn't have had to quit. Right? Or perhaps there's something else to it...

There is plenty of EU I would take over any of the movies, original or prequel.

I agree. There is no question that the movies are awesome(the original trilogy at least, the awesome factor of the prequels is debatable) and they started it all. But to me that is what they are, a beginning. I would prefer most of the EU to the movies any day.

There are a few reasons I enjoy the EU more than the movies. First the movies are pretty set in stone, what you see is what there is. Books are more open to interpretation and use of imagination. Secondly every time I open a book it is like viewing the Star Wars universe from a different perspective. Each author has their own strengths and weaknesses and their own way of expressing the story that they are telling.

Hmm, good point. I hadn't thought of that. Embarassed

Still it would be a great resolution, if ol' GL could agree.

My two cents is that I find a lot of the EU more intesting than the movies. I love the movies, first saw IV at a drive-in movie way back when. But I think the EU novels are just much more in depth.

It also could be that the books are fresh, other than the ones I have re-read, and I have already watched all of the movies many times over(even my least favorite episodes 1 and 2 thanks to both of my sons loving them).

Having just read No Prisoners, my guess is that the powers that be have just about had enough of her very negative jedi slant and sort of pushed her into making the decision to walk.

If it were simply the cube planet thing, that could have been easily sorted.

My resolution to the whole Jedi-lovers/clones: inhuman (?) is just don't take it too seriously. They're just books, just movies and when you get hung up on things, it ceases to be fun and thus Star Wars dies. Just a thought.

Good point, Reep. I happen to love both the Jedi and the clones, which apparently isn't allowed. Wink I can't believe that Traviss was given the boot over her anti-Jedi ideas. SW books are full of differing opinions, and everybody's entitled to theirs.

I don't think that the strong anti-Jedi feelings in her novels have anything to do with Traviss leaving SW, because basically there isn't a single current SW novel or comic which wouldn't involve anti-Jedi sentiments to some extent. Her's more than anyone else, yes, but if we look at the post-RotJ novel series that DR has published, I think that only DN can be claimed not to have involved anti-Jedi feelings in a significant role. On the contrary, I rather guess that this has created a market for anti-Jedi stories, where Jedi are not only widely detested and loathed, but are shown to deserve it.

So, I accept her own reason for leaving SW.
