The Star Wars book range has recently expanded for E formats like Amazon Kindle. I find myself reading more and more Star Wars. Up until now I have only read a handful of novels but I have played quite a few games so to say I'm new to the EU is unfiar. Coming to terms with how a video game fits in with the saga has been quite easy in the past due in no small part to the rather low quality material presented: you play, forget, move on. Back in the day, KotOR was a game-changer for Star Wars entertainment as it took and gave back something to the Universe. Since then, SW games have come a long way in terms of the amount of lore they give to the saga - The Force Unleashed being a good example. It has become harder to forget and move on. However, as they take so long to make the chances of them entering into conflict with existing canon is low. So the purpose of this thread is to get advice from the EU veterans about how to deal with the shifting continuity that has become common with the ongoing Clone Wars series in terms of how it conflicts with stuff you thought you knew. I was a SW collector before the squeeze of recession diminished a lot of my disposable income, so I have almost a completionist mindset to buying Star Wars products: I buy it, it's mine, nothings going to change unless I sell it, you know? I suppose that concept of ownership is hard to shake and seems incompatible when it comes to Star Wars novels. I really want to believe that now I have just finished reading Darth Plagueis I have the difinitive tale of Palpatine's relationship with his sith master. I don't want to watch The Clone Wars next week and see a scene in which Sidious relates the story of how he trained Darth Maul that doesn't mesh with the book I've just read. I'm not saying that things shouldn't be considered from different viepoints, or stories converted to to the screen remain 100% faiuthful to the source, such as the "Slaves of the Republic" arc from season 4. I only want what I spend my money on to have a lasting place in the ongoing saga, so that I can re-read a book in five years time and have it as relevent to Star Wars then as it is now. Wishful thinking? EU veterans, how have you come to terms with the evolution of Star Wars novels or comics? Does the move to Disney fill you with terror? Plaese share your wisdom because as it stands I'm alomost afraid to read the next novel for fear of the last becoming obsolete. Like all those Republic Commando books sitting on my shelf.
