I just discovered The Walking Dead this year and think the television show is really, really good. I think Star Wars should handle there various storylines the same way The Walking Dead did. When the TWD television show premiered they created a clear separation between the tv series and the comics. Although the show does borrow things from the comics it goes on its own path (creating characters that were not in the comics or having characters from the comics do different things). The fans of Walking Dead are completely fine with this because they know that the two forms of storytelling are separate universes. They view the comics and television show complimenting each other as opposed to contradicting each other. I recently watched a playthrough of the Walking Dead video game off of youtube (which is a great story in and of itself) and in the latest episode that aired on Sunday they showed a map and the camera zoomed in on the town that was heavily focused on in the game. So I thought they may try to connect the show and the video game with each other and mentioned it on a Walking Dead board and they said no they can show some easter eggs but nothing more than that because the game is canon for the comics but not for the television show. It would be cool if they could crate a clear separation like that in Star Wars for the things you see onscreen and the things you read on paper.
