    That's some EMP. Planetary-scale, sure. You'd tip the odds a bit. :p

    Still doesn't explain thousands of Star Destroyers which have to be crewed by thousands of clones each. ;)

    Oh, speaking of Moraband:

    If TCW explained that every continuity discrepancy was actually engineered by the Celestials, not only would no one care, they would praise it for its masterful expansion of the galaxy's history.

    You forgot to post the image.

    Edit: Force-wielders! Midi-chlorians! Moraband!

    Edit 2: the cynical side of me believes that if you swapped the names responsible for different works in SW nowadays, the reactions would be completely different.

    I think I know what image you're referring to, but sadly I do not have it.

    Yay, more Celestials! They're like Wizards in LOTR. Sticking around from a bygone legendary era, waiting to wow impressionable Force-sensitives.

    If the Celestials were Time Lords then, sure, I could get behind it.

    I will be legit disappointed if the next time we encounter Rassilon he isn't Pierce Brosnan.

    Unless the next time we encounter him he's just Tim Dalton again, of course.

    Marabond is clearly the best of the Sith homeworlds.

    "Knowing that it is impossible for a Jedi to retain his identity after death"

    Suck it, early EU!

    I can't wait until the introduction of Korri Jodde Skywalker.

    The spirits of Ragnos and Nadd don't exist, therefore Kun and Ulic didn't turn to the dark side, therefore the Great Sith War didn't happen, therefore the Mandalorian Wars didn't happen, therefore Revan and Malak didn't turn to the dark side, therefore... TOR didn't happen! :)

    I thought it was well established that the Jedi lost the knowledge, presumably sometime during the Republic Dark Ages.

    The problem I see is all the Jedi that were said to have done it during the Clone Wars, like Corran Horn's grandfather. It's a trap that could have been avoided too, because if Jedi vanishing was universal, why does Obi-Wan taunt Vader -- a former Jedi in every permutation of his backstory, and the guy that supposedly helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi -- with the fact that striking him down will make him more powerful, and why is Vader surprised when Obi-Wan vanishes?

    Oh, I thought there was some non-macro image or something. Heh.


    EU writers, by and large, weren't very good at understanding what was actually going on in the movies.

    To JasonFry it is to brilliantly solve and unsolvable conundrum which has caused millions of fanboys (and girls) to cry out in terror. It is our board's most sacred technique, and one I'd love to see tackle "Moraband" ;)

    Staticky comlink + cartographer who couldn't hear = stubborn error that's persisted for millennia?

    Haha. Too bad we already used the Grumani/Spumani test-of-faith approach. Though it's a big galaxy....

    Glorious Nippon.

    But yeah. Realistically, every planet in the Star Wars galaxy should have at least a dozen different names. Even if everyone on the planet is wearing the same hat, some of them must be embroidered in different languages.

    Actually it should be, "The planet has three names."
