I know we have threads for saying what parts of the EU each of us would keep or throw out if we had the chance, but I was wondering: if you could change one EU event, just one, what would it be? Personally, I'd prevent Anakin Solo's death. Not only because he was one of my favorite characters. In fact, I had a hard time deciding between him and Mara. But I feel like things such as Jacen's fall wouldn't have been such a disaster if Anakin had lived.

What about the rest of you? Is there any event you'd like to erase or change?

Mara's death, Mara's death, Mara's death! You really had to ask? Crying or Very sad

But would Mara being saved have altered the books that came after significantly? That's the way I'm thinking.

... Can I just say "Dark Nest?" That launched the Troy Denning as project lead era.

Just eliminate JINO and that single thing basically undoes Mara's death and a bunch of other stupid stuff. Unless we're assuming that she would die anyway some other way.

Also that's my answer. Though the Dark Nest answer I guess is pretty much the same thing as well.

I am completely and totally biased. I cannot let such a thought influence my choice. Just to be honest.

Keep your eyes on the prize! Undo JINO and Mara doesn't die and pretty much everything wrong in the world is fixed.

Good point. Perhaps that's what I should vote for. *ponders*

Be strategic, Mara! That's the point of only getting to chose one event. It's in your best interest to make it one that would change things. Wink

Well, I would vote for Jacen's fall. That would have the added bonus, in case anyone cared for such a thing, of saving Mara...

If it's just a matter of thinking strategically... I'd say Anakin Skywalker's jealousy. We didn't see it in the films, but a big part of his fall is based in them. Prevent Anakin's fall and everything will be fixed, from Jacen's fall to Anakin Solo's death.

Dark Empire! Then there would be a nice gap for a sequel trilogy. Very Happy

The sequel trilogy would presumably have to be 30+ years after the OT based upon the age of the actors, unless they were to recast the roles. And I doubt Harrison Ford would come back as Han Solo unless the character was given a new arc (Chewbacca's death in the NJO could suffice?).

The one event that I would have to change is Sebula winning the Pod Race.

Then Jin would doubt if Anakin is a Jedi. They would leave him behind on the dust ball.
No pilot to blow up the Droid control Ship. No more GUNGANS..... brilliant
