To be fair, this is true. It happened with the prequels, it's happened with TCW. It's even happened with EU all of the time. OTOH, whenever it's happened in the age of the web, we haven't exactly been quiet about it. People argued about the contradictions between Genndy's CW Volume II and Labyrinth of Evil. I'm sure some of us probably thought things would never get more heated than Traviss' time. Then TCW came around and showed that was nothing. No, they've had to get permission for various story decisions for years. Timothy Zahn originally wanted to make the Noghri the Sith to explain Vader's "Dark Lord of the Sith" title. A.C. Crispin wanted to write a Leia trilogy in the same vein as her Han trilogy, but I believe was turned down because I feel like they wanted to keep her younger years off limits for some reason. Maybe later development. So yes, Lucas and the brass have had input on the EU from time to time, including limits on what they could do. Even Anakin Solo couldn't be the hero of NJO because apparently readers are too dumb to separate him from his namesake grandfather. He did it with the movies themselves, too. It might be bad business with something that isn't a phenomenon like Star Wars, but we just keep going back. Over and over. If they do reboot, I can't see them touching the films, including the PT. Though I wonder what this site's reaction would be if they did reboot the EU, but only everything C and below.
