Wow Jesse James your posts are so close to how I feel about EU. I'm not sure what to add to it. heh
I've always loved how they make the effort to make the whole EU one story, of one history. But like Darkhorse has infinities (what ifs), I wish they'd do the same with some of the earlier EU. It doesn't all have to fit together; and I'm one that loves order! The Prophets of the Dark side, couldn't we have just left that out?
That said, I still want to get an official timeline list of all things Star Wars. Comics and books and video games and the RPG stuff all meshed into one history. It is like I love the continuity and hate it at the same time.
I think the Vong series hurt EU. It was borglike, and it dismantled what Jedi were. Made them too simple to kill. The whole idea of "if I can't feel you in the force, I can't fight you."
EU also relies too heavily on the movies characters. I loved X-Wing for the move away from "beat up Luke" book of the month. I don't mind NOT seeing jedi in a story.
