Unpopular EU opinions? No problem. I think the first arc of Dark Times was really good, the second fine too, and after that the series tanked fast. I don't understand the love for Blue Harvest - the story wasn't great, and it was bloated enough that it could have been told in two issues. Out of the Wilderness actually made me actively dislike the characters, especially Jennir, and stop following the series. I also think Wheatley is hugely overrated and his inability to stick to schedules kind of unprofessional. Basically if this wasn't Randy's pet project it probably would have been canceled after the first arc. Similarly...I'm not really a big fan of JJM. I think about a third of the original KOTOR run was great, 1/3-1/2 mediocre, and the rest kind of bad. And KOTOR: War was one of the worst Star Wars products I've read in the last few years. Knight Errant was decent, but that's it. I will say I like the worldbuilding he does for the Last Tribe but that's kind of a unique format. To a lesser extent, I think the X-Wing novels are overrated, and Allston's attempts at humor are pretty lame. And perhaps the biggest one: I'm re-reading Heir to the Empire for the first time in years right now, and....I don't think it really holds up. I can't put my finger on it, but something about it just isn't clicking for me this time. This is the first time I'm reading it since I really started getting immersed in the EU and it just doesn't feel like it gels within the larger framework, but more than that, I think later EU works are better quality. Including Zahn's own Hand duology and Outbound Flight. Finally, so it's not just negativity: I really like the Crimson Empire series. All of it. I consider it a crying shame there is no chance a DESB-style Crimson Empire Sourcebook will ever get made.
