since your name is lestat, I'll give you an answer from another vampire:
"the world you know is a sugar coated topping!"
check out the starwars.com threads,rebelscum threads. and the eu threads on this site. there is a massive Devide amongest starwars fans young and old. EU and prequels, then theres the only ot ppl.
i personally don't get it, i mean i see flaws in everything...quite frankly i know I've said this before elsewhere. but i would have been done with starwars a long time ago if it wasn't for the EU. i wouldn't even be that into the movies if it wasn't for the EU, constantly bringing all the extras and locations to life. on one hand its retarded to have a action figure devoted to every single patron of the cantina when we don't even have every padme outfit yet, but its kool to know what everyone in there was doing.
