    I've been a Star Wars fan from childhood (now in my mid 30s). My first exposure to the galaxy far, far away was watching the original trilogy on TV and VHS. I soon discovered the novels and, over the years, I've read a decent chunk of the old EU (Shatterpoint, Darth Plagueis and the Heir to the Empire trilogy are among my favourites). I'm also enjoying the new canon novels, especially Claudia Gray.

    I saw the prequels as they were released, ROTS was definitely the highlight of the trilogy. I'm a bit of a gamer and I've played a good few Star Wars video games. KOTOR and the Battlefront games were stand-out favourites. I'm looking forward to Battlefront II (currently halfway through Inferno Squad).

    I'm also a comic book fan and I've read a good few Star Wars comics. Crimson Empire Saga and Legacy were outstanding. I'm trying to get started on the new Marvel comics, but there's a lot of content coming out.

    This is a great time to be a Star Wars fan with the new movies and TV shows. I guess I'm here because I want to talk to other people who share my enthusiasm.

    Adalia-Durron I tend more to the light side.
    BookExogorth Cool, I'll definitely be kicking about in the EUC whenever I get the chance.
    Halle Dray Thanks, I loved that movie as well. I remember leaving the cinema buzzing.

    You could do that Dannik Jerriko, you could join the Jedi... and be restricted. Or, you could explore your darker side and join our very active community. Links are in my signature if you would like to see what fun you'd be missing out on if you joined the Jedi.
