I put it forward that episode 3 contradicts those two pages. tongue

If i dont renember bad .. the new trilogy contradicts the old one in some aspects..

first Leia "renembering her mother" while she was very young..  now they try to explain it by stating the force made Leia baby renember her sad mother.. not only is stupid and ludicrous but it ignores the fact that Luke was there as well..

Im pretty sure that when Lucas/Kasdan wrote that line for "ROTJ" they tought of Leia being a child.. probably arround 3 or 4 years old.. not a 30 seconds baby.

Also in "ANH" Ben states that the Jedi Knights had protected the republic for 1000 generations..wich made the 25.000 year age of the republic stated in all EU sources.. and then Lucas throws in the new movies that it was "only" about 1000 years old..

And the whole thing of Yoda being the master of Ben ... wich was destroyed in ep1 and badly fixed in ep2 with the "Yoda child teacher" thing..

Im not even entering what was speculated or EU based.. those were stated facts in one source denied or badly twisted in the other

I personally think Leia has no idea what she us blabbing about and is thinking of her step mother. I refuse to believe that along with the Midibullshit.

Oh, KOTOR MMO confirmed being made by Bioware at last. Fuck you SOE. Some developers worthy of handiling Star Wars are on the case. All I need to know now is, can we genocide the crap out of the Selkath?

Mee to but as ever Lucas really lieks to screw things up constantly..

He stated that "Leia renembered Padme and that those memories came from that scene in RotS" ..
Justy the same bullshit as when he showed the Death Star under construction..
I first tought "ok... this scene may be 10 years from now" but no.. it was meant to be there right after end of RotS .. then i tought.. "COOL!! This can be the maw installation and that then the Death Star prototype!" wich would be awesome and fitting.. but no no again.. Lucas says "it took the thing 19 years to complete" .

Why!?? Why that personal interest in contradict everything.. specially books he sold to people for money. i mean.. he even conceded that there were other death star prototypes.. but that the one we see in that last scene IS the Death-Star-I.. why he stated it.. he simply had to remain silent and we could hapily imagine that was the maw instalation prototype..
 just likes Leia's memories.. we see it and say "Double-U - Tee - Eff???" and he says "Thats right moroms!!!! i fooled you for 22 years! ..i made you think that Leia renembering her true mother was she living with her at least for 2 or 3 years but no!! Leia had barelly 30 seconds to know her mother from the moment she leave her uterus and being in Oby Wans arms for 20 - 25 seconds before Padme died!.. and just in case any of you try to fix it im confirming it and putting my "flannel shirt aproved cannon" seal on it! "

Also.. did you know..in that last Death Star scene.. first we see some white painted (that was cool..to simbolize the change from Republic to Empire) Venator class Destroyers (where were the Victories by the way) and some V-Wings fighters fly-by.. aparently someone on LucasFilms wanted those to be TIE Fighters but Lucas directly contradicted him stating "The empire would have 19 years to build TIE Fighters" ...... o0 .... what about the fraking Death Star you flannel man!!

I know what you are getting at Javier, but Lucas has always been like this. Check out the Beta Star Wars scripts. If Fanfiction.net was around in the nineteen seventies you'd see them on it.

Here is the link to ALL the early Star Wars scripts. Keep an open mind and don't drink whilst reading. You'll spit take like crazy.

At least the EU is now official and has been cleaned up slightly now. Haha, Glove of Darth Vader still makes me laugh.

I had a very odd realization today.  As cool as it would be to be in the universe of the original star-wars trilogy (I love those X-wing games)  I would not, repeat NOT want to be any of the main characters.  You'd think things would turn out alright for them, but think of the shit they got put through.

What if I were in the shoes of Luke Skywalker:  Cool. I'm the last of the Jedi.  I get to personally destroy the first Death Star, and with my defeat of the Emperor I'm pretty much the greatest hero in the Galaxy.  However, I get to have my arm lopped off by my own father, and I get to spend my most heroic moment whining like a bitch, as I am nearly electrocuted to death.

What about Han Solo:  Pretty cool.  I'm the greatest smuggler in the galaxy.  I have the most kickass ship around.  I shoot down Darth Vader.  Plus A Wookie that can rip your freaking head off; he's got my back.  It also means I get encased in both an imperial torture box and a block of carbonite all in the same week.  Plus, while everybody else is out getting cool powers and weapons, I'm sitting on my worst enemy's trophy case.  Bump that.

Princess Leia: Gender-swap aside, still pretty cool.  Big mantle of authority and basically the entire rebel alliance is under my control.  Turns out, I'm also the descendant of the man who is the greatest Jedi and the most Powerful Sith ever.  Awesome.  But even all of that still ain't worth it to watch my home planet obliterated before my very eyes, and then being raped by a hutt.

Now that I think about it, how did all this crap get away under a PG rating?  I mean, damn!

what about the fraking Death Star you flannel man!!

I've thought about this too.  there are logical reasonings to it.  First of all the death star is Huge, it's like the size of a moon.  It can't be built in a short time-frame.  Second of all it has to be constructed in secret, so that will slow production time.  Third, the first death star was a prototype, prototypes are always the hardest to construct.  There's so many glitches and tough spots you have to work around.   Once you've built a prototype, any further production will go along much smoother.  Finally, there's no evidence that the empire did not start work on the second death star during the construction of the original.  It may take a decade and a half to build one, but there's nothing in the rules that says you can't work on two at once. 

So, yeah, maybe the second death star comes out a little quick, but I can see how that works.

Losing a limb and being penetrated by a giant alien worm kinda out shadows a little accidental sibling make out session.  But yeah, would be kinda weird.  Leia can walk away from it no prob, I'm sure because in her mind she was only getting back at Han anyway.

I'm convinced the only dude in the Star Wars cast that had a perfectly normal life during the whole thing was the gunner on Darth Vaders Flagship Star Destroyer in A New Hope.

Tooled around the Galaxy during his tour of service in the Imperial Navy and got promoted eventually to Head Gunner, returned home to his tiny little farm colony of a planet on the outer rim and lived out his life peacefully with his family.

No..i have no problem with the Death star II building in "more" than 4 years (renember that it was started just after the Battle of Yavin and in the Battle of Endor 4 years ago it was still arround 66-70% made.. maybe one or two years more until full complete operation with all finished and fully crewed and able to travell by herself .. that would put the building time on about 5-6 years.

What i see ridicolously unnecesary was stating that what we saw at the end of RotS was the very same Death Star I when they have published plenty of books and so wich stated that there were prototypes..  or making that scene just in RotS and not a "5 years after" flashforward or something..  he wanted to precipite things and that was in my opinion his failure.. specially after specifically forbiding to put TIE Fighters in the same scene arguing that the empire would had 19 years to design and build them so there was no hurry..and yet in the same scene he shows the Death Star and in no so small progress state, because i see her just as finished as it was the "Maw proptotype" acording to Kevin "i have a small penis" Anderson books

So reading one of the post NJO EU novels and I have thought of something. Despite all these years of comics, games, books and new movies puking out all these new Sith, Dark Jedi and crazy assed force obessesed clones Darth Vader, except his whiny assed Anakin Skywalker phase will always be the de facto bad ass Villain of them all no matter what.

Do we all agree with that? Or does somebody have a different view. Discuss.

I didn't think Thrawn was that badass, sure he had ambition, but he was more like an clever British accountant to me, not very exciting in his own right.

I'm currently reading the Jedi Academy trilogy.

Are you kidding me? Thrawn was like a cross between Napoleon and Rommel and all but omnipotent.  I agree with Nurdbot, Thrawn and Vader are the best not question.

Yeah, his own bodyguard, whose people he raped and pillaged, if they ever found out what the Empire really did to them, they'd royally fuck him up, so what does he do? He keeps one as a crazy vicious killer pet!

Also, dear EU writers of serious books stop using childish terms like 'sarlaccs throat' or 'wampa's freezers' it is just goddamn demeaning. Your writing books for nerds in their twenties, thirties and forties dammit. We may be giant man children most of the time but we don't want to read your crappy camp attempts at being clever when Jacen is about to be a little bitch and kill a bunch of people.

I watched a documentry about these star wars movies just yesterday.
It was weird watching Kurt Russell audition for the Role of Han Solo... and it was even more strange listening to carrie fisher talk about how worried about her wait she was, particularly when she had to fit into that bikini..

Watching footage with out the sound effects and music was odd. But it doesn't take from the awesomeness of the three originals..

Ben: Nailed it to a T.

Seriously, Caff? Saniunit? Refresher? just one step away from space facial.

Also, looking and hearing at how Star Wars was made is just as awesome. Kenny Baker has softcore porno taped under R2D2's lid when he was inside the thing and Anthony Daniels was so snobby he isolated himself from the rest of the cast.

My favourite one of these however is Lucas making Carrie Fisher not wear undies as Leia on set for A New Hope. His excuse was no underwear in space is hilarious...

nurdy: Are they writing them for nerds in their 20s, 30s, and 40s? Sure, nerds in their 20s, 30s, and 40s buy them, but I think Lucas is like Big Tobacco, they SELL merch to the nerds he's already got hooked, but his focus remains on hooking the next generation of nerds. Proof: pretty much the entire new trilogy.

I mean, you're still buying it, right? So what's the gain for them in making you like it more?

I don't buy, I use the Library and Wookieepedia to catch up on what books they always have missing.

Also, These books are made for adults because this is the result of a childrens EU book...

so... it's a race to see who can get Vader's glove, thus claiming the title of Emperor?

That does sound terribly idiotic.

I find the fact hilarious that out of all of the still living Grand Admirals, Issard and other EU Champions they choose some guy who whipped people to lead the Empire. Then again, this was made before they decided the EU was to be made into serious canon.

Also, the Jedi Prince thing to me and slightly creepy.

This website has the whole summary of what goes on in the 'story arc'.
