    I would get rid of COJ and probly not replace it. Yes it was that bad.

    But if I had to choose one the NJO, no contest.

    Whoever said COPL is right. Leia was unbelievably off in that book. Totally shallow and unlike the strong princess we saw in the movies. The HST and the NJO are good choices too. I'd be thrilled to scrap VP and start all over again.

    I enjoy the EU, but I can HONESTLY say that I'd scrap all of it, except for maybe the first book or two in the Zahn trilogy, only change Zahn to a human so it's more believable, change a few characters to be more realistic and not so generalistic, then continue the EU from there, maybe limiting things to one clone per the entire timeline, but I doubt I'd use that. I wouldn't use the Jedi Academy. Leia would be trained by Luke, and the Sith would return, but not like "Dark jedi" or "witches of Dathomir", it'd be a full fledged Sith that happened to survive. There could be an explanation for it, just think about it, don't be so quick to make everyone force tuned and evil and a clone.

    My first choice would be COPL. Then I would like to edit the NJO. I like the idea above about scraping the whole thing except for the Zahn Trilogy and starting over from there. Leia should have definately been trained as a jedi.

    I admittedly hate the first two novels in the Black Fleet Crisis, however, that does not mean I'd get rid of em. I also hate the Queen Amidala Journal, and might consider getting rid of it, but I wouldn't. Just because I don't like it does not mean that someone else wouldn't. No reason to force my will on others by saying "I hate this so it must go."

    As far as I'm concerned, Crystal Star and the entire NJO never happened. Some others are questionable...

    There have been a number of books that aren't worth remembering, however the only series I hated was the Bounty Hunter Wars.

    K.W. Jeter should be permanently banned from writing another book, after his piss-poor portrayal of Boba Fett, Bossk, IG-88, 4-LOM, and Zuckuss. Besides the fact he contradicted almost every last fact about all of the bounty hunters. And his extreme overusage of "barve" and "Kuat."

    No one likes it? I'll have you know that of all the star Wars books I've read, the three I do not like are Before the Storm, Shield of Lies, and the Queen Amidala Journal. I own the three books which make up the Calista Trilogy and I enjoyed them.

    I'd scrap the whole dang thing and start over. With authors who know and care about the characters, this time.

    But if I could get rid of just a few pieces of EU work, I'd say get rid of the HST, COPL, and NJO.

    Crystal Star, CoJ. PoT, BFC, CoPL, TaB, are the ones I can think of top of my head. as to be removed. As for edited...

    JAT to include Corran, and to do something for that ditz Qwi, I just hate her so much... Just don't get him together with Wedge, please?
    DS to not to include Callista. (Another ditz, as well as Gaeriel and Akeetha[?])
    HoT to have Corran doing Jedi stuff.
    TCT to have... Let's just do it again with a better author. The events are ok, but the books suck.

    I'd correct the whole EU to have at least one Xizor cameo per book. :D

    I'd have to choose the NJO. Too dark and depressing for my likes.

    Out of the Bantam line, I guess I'd have to choose COPL. The characterization of Han and Leia were totally off in that one.
