The one thing about EVERYTHING that's been published under permission is that everything that people _think_ is contradictory can be explained. Even the "Jaster" angel on Boba fett was explained through the "open season" storyline.
And... what's that? a giant green bunny from marvel? Yep, explained and fleshed out by SWD20.
Without the EU, you woldn't even have the name "coruscant". Lucas always had a different name, and the fans like d it so much that he agreed to call it Coruscant.
EU is an intregal and vital part of Star wars.
[ul]Canon refers to an authoritative list of books that the Lucas Licensing editors consider an authentic part of the official Star Wars history. Our goal is to present a continuous and unified history of the Star Wars galaxy, insofar as that history does not conflict with, or undermine the meaning of Mr. Lucas's Star Wars saga of films and screenplays. Things that Lucas Licensing does not consider official parts of the continuous Star Wars history show an Infinities logo or are contained in Star Wars Tales. Everything else is considered canon[/ul]
The Official stance on the subject is that yes, it is canon.
Also, in my personal view, yes, it is canon.
Besides- it has no contradictions with the movies.

Oh H#ll yeah, EU should be canon. I dont think i'd like it if all the books i've read turned out to be "infinities". that would be a big waste of money for sure. both other than that, yes, EU should be counted as canon.
Canon... not Canon, who cares?
As long as you enjoy the story, and it gives you a measure of satisfaction, what do you care what George Lucas thinks of it?
There is no Original Trilogy. There is no Prequel Trilogy. There is no Expanded Universe. There is only Star Wars!
DH has it quite correct. May we now all refer to it as that. Star Wars.
GL never reads the books orso it seems, so why should anything count that he doesnt write.
Cause if GL wrote it it would have turned out like TPM. a really lame story. Hes getting better in Ep2. and EP3 should be one of his best. I like the Imax version of ATOC better then the regular one. less sappy crap and all action.
