A consistent characteristic or, in my opinion, problem in the Star Wars universe is the discrepancies between the film and EU. The contradictions range from minor to major and most of us are likely familiar with more than a few. I pondered this further when I was doing some more research on the Sith Emperor from TOR and rewatched Revenge of the Sith, where Palpatine tells Anakin "to cheat death is a power only one has achieved." We know from Dave Filoni and George that they believe the films have the right to run roughshod over the EU when they see fit, since "it's George's story." But what about when the reverse occurs? I think that a flawlessly seamless world is impossible, but does anyone (especially VIPs, authors, and those here connected with LFL) have any insight as to why these issues come up so often?
