I thought it was pretty cool. Exaggerated, but very cool. Cool

Have we ever done a "top ten favorite Star Wars novels" question/thread yet? Didn't see one...

Wow. You know, I happen to think making a list of ten things to get rid of quite easy, the only difficult bit is that I kept on reading what you lot wrote and I would come up with reasons to keep it. Except for the Han Solo lot. And Lando. Sorry.
1. Han Solo trilogy, both of them.
2. Lando's stuff.
3 Genndy Tartovsky's series. I couldn't even bring myself to watch all of it. I think I managed about 5 episodes before I stopped watching and cleansed myself with an acid shower.
4. Ruins of Dantooine.
5. Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy.

Okay, I'm being called away. I'll complete this another time.

Let me just preface it with...I don't think I'd get rid of TCW. Bum bum bum!!!

Both Han Solo trilogies? I rather liked the Crispin books.

It's more a case of impact and character development. As far as I can tell, they don't bring much to the character that we didn't already know.

And I'm still not finished!

Hm, never noticed this thread.

1) Dark Nest Trilogy
JINO is bad

2) Legacy of the Force series
Darth Caedus never existed.

3) Fate of the Jedi series
Darth Caedus never existed.

4) Star Wars Legacy
Darth Caedus never existed.

5) Crosscurrent
Darth Caedus never existed.

6) Millennium Falcon
Darth Caedus never existed... sadly for this one.

7) Crispin Han Solo trilogy
I like the Daley trilogy, Crispin's characterization doesn't match Daley or Episode IV. The Battle of Nar Shaddaa is identical to the Battle of Yavin. Consider Han's characterization in each. He undergoes a similar scenario early on in Han Solo at Star's End.

8) Callista trilogy
Hambly's prose is so boring. And KJA.

9) Jedi Academy trilogy
KJA.

10) The New Rebellion
Weird plot. A single planet is somehow a threat to the New Republic. Meh.

11) The Crystal Star
This doesn't require explanation.

12) Bounty Hunter trilogy
Meh...

13) Jedi Trial
Meh....

14) Cestus Deception
This book is notable for being absolutely unnotable.

15) Ruins of Dantooine
No explanation needed.

16) Jedi Prince series
Moffrence and blaster earrings. Han's skyhouse.

Now, these are just the things I didn't like. If I limit the future of Star Wars to stuff I really like, the list is going to be a lot longer.

Shocked

I don't think you know what you're saying. Have you been hit over the head with a large, metal object? How can someone dislike the Genndy show that much?! I've never met anyone who disliked it, let alone hated it enough that they could only watch 5 episodes and wished that it wasn't a part of Star Wars.

I need to go home and rethink my life...

I've never watched the old Clone Wars cartoon. Almost bought it at Best Buy one time but opted out. I've never read the Jedi Prince books either. Sometime I'll have to do that. The idea of a hairy Hutt is very appealing. Cool

Trust me, it's not. Do not spend money on those books.

Sure you've met someone who disliked the old Clone Wars cartoon, Ben. You've met me! Very Happy

There is way too much exaggeration, as I've already said in this thread, and they don't work very well when watched back to back- too little dialouge and too much repetition. Confused
