That's the thing, though --- you won't buy it, but millions of casual fans will. Stories like Peter Pan and The Wizard of Oz get unofficial origin stories every few years, and people buy them in droves, even if they're not authorized by Barrie's or Baum's estates as being official canon. As soon as it became clear that The Clone Wars was a pie in which Lucas would be routinely sticking his fingers, the notion of one cohesive continuity was thrown out the window. If the folks at Lucas Licensing had admitted as much from the beginning instead of denying it for years, I think we could all have enjoyed it a lot more. "Here was Dark Horse/Del Rey/Genndy's take on the Clone Wars, and now here's ours." The integrity of the original clone wars multimedia project could have been preserved quit a bit more if authors weren't bending and twisting it out of shape in order to conform it to its new animated overlord. Lucas has been saying for years that the (non-TCW) EU is its own universe, anyway. Accepting as much would have allowed it more freedom. Then again, I'm probably the only one at this forum who's actually excited for the EU to go out the window.
