So I was curious and not sure how to ask this, so I'm going to make it hypothetical-like. Sort of like a "what if" game, but let's not call it a "what if" thread because those aren't allowed in Lit, and let's not call it a "game" per se, because those aren't allowed in Lit either. So here's how it goes: Ol' J. J. Abrams has been feeling the pressure as of late. He knows there's a big Star Wars fanbase out there, a big amorphous bantha biscuit of a fanbase that's gonna get mightily pissed off at whatever he does. So he's decided to kidnap a fan, and that fan just happens to be you. This is you: Here's JJ. He wants you to answer his Questions Three. JJ knows that the EU has been sort of an ivory tower among die-hard Star Wars fans, and even though he's been given the go-ahead to deface the heck out of it, he's learned from his experiences among the Trek base that maybe a total steamroll isn't the best way to go. So here's your chance: you are allowed to keep THREE things in the EU. Any part of the EU. G-canon, C-canon, T-canon, it doesn't matter -- they're all equal in the eyes of JJ and he's about to hulk smash the hell out of them. Now if you say something stupid like "the entire EU" or "everything after ROTJ", JJ will probably make you take the blue pill and you'll wake up the next day with one less kidney and no recollection of how you got off the island. Game over. JJ is looking for something more along the lines of "Jacen Solo" or "Nil Spaar's turban hat" (please don't say that. I will think less of you if you do.) Something he can use for his films. An aspect or character or item in the EU that will continue to exist in the Disneyverse. Probably not perfectly, but some semblance of it will live on. Here are my 3 as an example: 1) Thrawn -- an uncanny Imperial commander who outsmarts the heroes at every move. Yes, he's spawned more fanboys than Ahsoka can ever hope for, but you've got to admit Evil Sherlock Holmes is a memorable villain. 2) The Yuuzhan Vong -- a race of organics-obsessed, (mostly) force-less, bloodthirsty invaders from beyond the Galaxy's border. They were a good idea and if the EU were obliterated tomorrow I would honestly miss them. 3) The Wedge/Tycho/Wes/Hobbie dynamic -- come to think of it, I might miss this most of all if the EU goes. Ok, so have at it. And I should note that these shouldn't necessarily be your "three favorite things in the EU", but more along the lines of 3 things the EU did that deserve to live on in some way, shape, or form.
