    Hmmm... entire Black Fleet Crisis Trilogy, or Planet of Twilight.
    Then again I pretend like BFC doesn't exist anyway...
    Now I really liked Children of the Jedi. But I didn't really care for PoT. I think LFL figured they had to explain why Callista never came back, and it was only right to have Hambly do it, since she created her. It just felt like something they had to put together for continuity's sake.

    The Bounty Hunter Wars
    Dull and pointless

    But a close 2nd would be The Hand of Thrawn
    The two most overrated books in the EU

    Why stop at just one? All the EU could be unpublished at no great loss.

    Ohh god whats the name of it ??

    Its a book about Leia and Luke. And its a story that happens somehwere between the original 3
    That one or Truce at Bakura

    But all in all even the worst SW books is better than much other si-fi crap out there

    I liked Planet of Twilight a lot. But your right. There were two reasons why it was published.
    1. TO explain where Callista went
    this ones more important:
    2 The Admiral Daala mess. Daala said she was leaving the Empire at the end of Darksaber...yet mysteriously pops up at the Deep Core in Black Fleet!(good reason to ignore that trilogy, besides it copied the vagabond idea) Yet Planet just adds to the doesnt explain how Daala would come back after POT. Especially after she helped the New Republic beat up on rougue Imperials like Moff Getelles.

    Oh, the Essential Chronology finally alters history to explain te Daala/Pellaeon conflict. But doesnt explain it too well...

    This is actually a tough choice, very tough indeed.
    There are so many good Star Wars books out there that could in turn be effected by the un-publishing of a bad book.
    If I had to chose though, I would chose the Black Fleet Trilogy.

    The Phantom Menace took the entire Luke/Leia's mom concept and opened the door to fans everywhere.
    Even though at the end of the story, it all turned out to be a fake, a fluke, it still looks bad on the entire EU.
    The story isn't written as well as it could have been either.

    That screaming sound you're hearing is Children Of The Jedi being hurled into oblivion.

    Of course, that means Darksaber and Planet of Twilight are also negatized.

    Oh well. ;)

    My first impulse was Crystal Star. Vonda MacIntyre is actually a good author, but she was not in good form on this one, After giving it some thought, I decided Vector Prime was actually worse. Danni Quee....Ugh! Mara's disease...What a bad idea!

    Only one?

    1. Glove of Darth Vader and all associated books.
    2. D*rks*b*r
    3. The New Rebellion, except it was so boring I always forget it's there anyway.

    Dark Empire. Because of this authors turned Luke, a wonderful character, into a moody, morose, lonely,powerful but always afraid of the darkside, Jedi Master. It was the worst thing that ever happened to him.

    Does HST = my Han Solo Trilogy?

    I get confused by some of the book titles.

    Yes, I believe HST is the Han Solo Trilogy... (don't agree with wanting to un-publish it though)

    My pick would be Vision of the Future, I guess. There were parts of the book I liked but there were parts that I just *could not* get through. It took me forever to read it for some reason. So I guess I didn't like it very much.
