Do you ever watch the films with people who know little to nothing about the EU, but who might know you're a big Star Wars fan and so ask you for explanations about things? I find more often than not I get asked questions that fall into two categories: 1) those questions that require a detailed foray into the convolutions of the EU ("Did this Sifo-Dyas guy really exist? He's just Palpatine, right?" "What did Han do to Lando to make him betray him?"), or 2) those questions I cannot answer, since the EU does not provide an explanation. Instances of the latter include: "What happened to Watto? Why isn't he in the OT? Why does Vader work for Peter Cushing? Why does Leia remember her mother (I hate this question -- the EU's partial explanation just sucks)? Why wasn't Piett's character ever choked -- was he special? Why is C-3PO the only gold protocol droid?" And sometimes normal people ask questions or comment on the EU directly. Case in point: I was told Dark Forces was "a game about Luke Skywalker" when I got it for Christmas many eons ago. I also know someone who was convinced "Leia befriended the Ewoks in ROTJ because she remembered them from when she was trapped on the planet as a little girl." So how do you all explain the EU to "normal" people? Do they listen? Do you have any weird stories to share?
