You gotta love the guy. On the one hand, he doesn't give a $#!+ about what other people have done to the fiction outside of EPs. 1-6. And on the other, it's his licensing department the one that has allowed the expansion of the SW universe throughout the past couple of decades with all assorted videio games and novels. What a damn egomaniac. SW it's just not as "good"/"canonical" if it doesn't have his direct creative imput. Well, I'll tell you what George: crap like Jar-Jar and many of the other woeful elements of the PT didn't make SW any damn better. I can barely tolerate ROTS; but forget about the cringe inducing disasters that are Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones (really love! that name, after all these years, George). The fact I enjoyed the story of TPU far more than the preceding canonical episodes just tells you just how much I appreciate his creative quality.
