Disagree, the EU (including TOR) should show connections to the films, yes they should pave their own path, try new things out, do things the films never did, but, some of their substance has to stay true to the films. Such as the basic conflict of good vs evil (though there is nothing wrong with showing shades of grey as well, which the EU has done), the jedi being lightsiders, following the jedi code, sith being darksiders, following sith code, Sith wielding red, jedi blue and green, etc. Certain things are meant to be kept in a traditional sense, throughout all forms of star wars, and i have no problem with that. Nothing wrong with the majority of Sith using red blades. Remember in many cultures today, the color of "red" symbolizes negative/dark emotions, including evil, so it makes symbolic sense for the Sith to use red blades.
