Nice to see "epic continuity rants" are no longer just for comic book nerds anymore.
And this is why I take the "hippie" stance on this that I do... Like what you like, ignore what you don't, and don't let Disney or anyone else tell you that your version
of Star Wars is somehow "wrong".
I was never a huge EU supporter before... I liked random things, but not all of it, and so I ignored a lot of it and didn't even read a lot of it once I saw what it was about.
At the same time, I mixed things that didn't even have a place in Star Wars into my
Star Wars. My favorite one I go to was a fan-made level to DF2: Jedi Knight that had Kyle Katarn infiltrating a base supposedly working on a biologic weapon, only to find it's the Aliens from Aliens, and of course Katarn shuts something off he shouldn't have while there, and chaos ensues. The guy coded new Alien AI (and obviously a skin), he had the Stormtroopers ignoring you to fight the aliens at times, he had facehuggers... It was awesome, and turned from a cool mission wandering out an elaborately designed base map with all kinds of puzzles to solve, to a map where you just wanted to escape as quickly as possible to your end point. It's still one of the best things I ever played, and just so much fun, and for me, Aliens are in there somewhere.
Predator too (have one in the Cantina, having a beer, with a Trandoshan).
Have fun with it how you want... And don't put all your hopes and dreams into what Disney does, or doesn't do. Rebels kinda blows from an adult POV (IMO), but it's part of their new official stuff... I like some of it, but it's disappointed me personally, but Star Wars didn't end for me because of that. I still love it. Just like E1 didn't ruin my childhood, nor did Han shooting first (but man, that was a close one).
