    I've always been a fan of the Medstar Duology. I don't know that it was 'hated' per se, but it has been largely ignored.

    Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void.

    The novel was generally good for making a first attempt to tell a story in the DOTJ timeline period. I have only encountered maybe one other person who read it and enjoyed it. Most of the fans I encountered maligned the comics series because they could not identify with the characters. They did not bother to read the novel. This was back in the period from 2012-2013 when the Disney purchase was still new and there were only rumors that Marvel might get the comics license.

    Death Star was my first EU read, and I really liked it.
    I also liked the Bane trilogy, Darth Plagueis and Scoundrels
    Mara Jade: By the Emperor's Hand has to be one of my favourite comics

    Jedi Academy Trilogy. I see people trash it quite a bit.
    I love Exar Kun's seduction of Kyp Duron. I love the entire story.

    I think the problem some people have is with Daala. While written by the same author, I think Daala was much better in Darksaber, but a lot of that has to do with her learning from her mistakes in the Jedi Academy Trilogy.

    I think I'm one of six people in the fandom who actually liked the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy by Michael Kube-McDowell.

    I think I'm one of the three people who liked the Fate of the Jedi series. ;)

    Similarly I'm one of very few people who enjoyed both the hugely maligned Dark Nest trilogy and Legacy of the Force series.

    I like most of the novels/series in any era, but it seems like the ones I don't like, are the ones everyone else does, like:
    Darth Plagueis
    Tarkin
    Bane Trilogy
    -These were okay, but I found them tedious

    One of the four!
