This post has had more revisions than the SW Continuity...

On it's own, I really liked this episode. I thought the trilogy was really well done and was easily the best thing we've seen in season 3. That said...

Well a twin brother would provide a convenient transition. The simpler the fix, the better. But as is, the hole in continuity is kind of jarring.

IDK- I'd say the fault CAN'T be Reaves- who could he have asked?

And even had he we all know George trumps what ever Reaves was told. Not they also knew of this some time before they were too deep into the CN series.

God bless canon and the fact that G-level is the most filled with Retcons but never feels like it cause those retcons are deemed "the vision" and it's C-level that gets re arranged for it all....

again even earlier then this time - people might not be saying how great things are.

And don't get me wrong- I liked the episodes- I LOVED them until the jumping of continuity in the EU.

And no it's nothing major. it's just tiring.

I'm still wanting to play in the sandbox- but only cause I find it the coolest sandbox ever. But if it wasn't so cool. I'd have left George alone with his toys years ago- he's a mean spoiled rich kid who needs better manners Laughing (Totally tongue in cheek! As I say this!)

Leland Chee. His own eyes for that matter!

If he was on the council in AotC, but not in RotS, that clearly indicates he died somewhere between them.

Darth Maul. I think Lucas wouldn't do it to himself without some sort of explanation.

George Lucas' treatment of the Expanded Universe seems to be that he treats it the same way that the Expanded Universe treats Infinities. He doesn't consider it 'canon' to "his world," which he distinguishes as separate from the Expanded Universe, but he will "reference" stuff he likes into "his world" from the Expanded Universe in the same way that the Expanded Universe will "reference" stuff from Infinities "into continuity," e.g. "Resurrection."

I think Leland Chee or LucasFilm is going to have to address the concept of continuity again. I've defaulted back to the original explanations from SW Insider and the SW Encyclopedia until this is cleared up:

I've put it under spoiler tags because it's long and I didn't want to take up a lot of space, but it isn't a spoiler or anything. I think that TCW falls under this similar category since Lucas is overseeing it and pretty much all ideas are coming from him and if they aren't he's approving them.

That's just it- I'm sure they did do some leg work- and I'm sure it was OK at the time he wrote it. Heck he even thanked Leland for his help....

His vision is all the explanation he needs. And most of us accept that, and the others have to accept it cause it's not changing. Laughing

Except when the EU does it to Infinites we don't then change the infinities story to match it. We do when it comes to G-level and C-level Canon.

See and I'm for still keeping the films as G, but TCW is a NEW and MADE up canon level- T-level it is not G-level but we are giving it all the same luxuries. So why not make it G-level then? Simple answer = it is NOT all coming from GL.

And we've seen what happens when GL approves things- they are only approved until he changes his mind or creates something new that contradicts what came before. And when it happens- it's always the NOW that supersedes all.

And honestly I can't say that I'd be content with ONLY SW by George Lucas and George only. Sure his movies are great. His TV shows are only excellent with no other SW to compare to- if you start to compare you'll notice George likes a different SW then the rest of the world. A SW he's still making up as he goes along. I wish he really did have a vision- that all these ideas were in his head for all these years and weren't something new he'd thought up on the fly.

Or we just stop the carry over- George makes a change fine- change his canon and leave what was before. Lets stop adding to the EU with his stuff. Let the EU grow beyond George's SW. Let George's SW do it's own thing. Stop letting the one change the other.

It's the heart of the EU Fan's issue with continuity.

I'm not sure why it matters whether Lucas is making it up as he goes along or not matters with regard to his works being considered "canon" by virtue of being his -- the creator of Star Wars.

As for the Infinities analogy, when the EU "references" Infinities elements "into continuity," only those elements referenced are in continuity. The story is still non-continuity.

When has Lucas ever changed his mind that contradicted something he previously did? What has he approved that he later changed?

Honestly, I'm inclined to agree with this from a review of the episode:

UPDATE: I’m reading that there are issues with EU wonks angry about Even Piell’s handling in this episode. To them I hope they can lighten up. This show is better than just about anything else in the EU. You can’t keep carrying this water for the EU. It’s expendable. They prove it every week.

The Clone Wars really is the best thing going on in Star Wars right now. Del Rey has no idea what it's doing and Dark Horse just cancelled all its ongoing comic series in favor of miniseries. LucasArts apparently cancelled The Force Unleashed 3, and I'm not really sure what else they're doing. I have no idea when TOR is going to be released, and KOTOR 1/2/TOR have a lot of continuity errors just like TCW anyway.
