First off, that's not in the movie. So Greedo's only actual appearance is in ANH. If it had been in the movie (and hopefully someday it will be along with all the others), then it will be the EU that will have to be retconned to make Greedo an older character. The reason for this is that the the other Rodian hints at Greedo's fate at Solo's hands. That forewarning makes no sense if it is Greedo's father. How was the "parsec" goof fixed by an EU explanation? Please explain. I'll hit you back with your own "That's your reading of it". The2ndQuest stated earlier that the STAR WARS EU "it's also not something that can be outright ignored in discussion". I was merely pointing out that it can be. The EU is intended to enhance the STAR WARS mythos for fans who choose to embrace it, but it is by no means essential in any STAR WARS discussion - unless of that STAR WARS discussion in about the EU. First, George did completely disregard TOTJ take on Jedi culture, etc. (that is if he even knew their take on it). Force Ghosts and Jedi marriages don't happen. Even ROGUE PLANET is out of date with that Jedi who had children. Second, the only EU names Lucas seems to have used is Coruscant (is that indeed Zahn's creation?) and Quinlan Vos. Aayla Secura crossed over from the EU because her character is sexy. I know of no others. Hardly evidence that Lucas gfives it more than a passing glance. If, George sat down tonight and began creating EPISODES VII to IX I doubt very much he would allow the EXPANDED UNIVERSE to influence him if he knew the story he wanted to tell. The2ndQuest wrote this - "And, quite frankly, there's a huge difference between the names of characters and other background info from the films and actual EU prose." The2nd is saying here that there is a "huge difference" in names and info. He is not talking about things "unnamed". Seriously, though, can somebody please look at Veers uniform and compare the colour to Ozzel's?
