    Sure, plus a storyline, characters, non-repetitive levels etc.

    Despite my exhortation of come at me bro, I really don't care all too much to argue about this though.

    What an amazingly original and controversial statement!

    Sarcasm font.

    The more I think about it, the more I want a flow-walking Infinite Crisis scenario to end the current post-RotJ EU with.

    Eh, I don't care if a game is original if it's good.

    It's been on its death bed for so long it doesn't have a bang left in it. It doesn't deserve to go out with a bang, it deserves to die alone, unmourned and unsung, to be forgotten soon after.

    Thrawn existed, but he was actually a seven foot-tall Ewok who fought for the Blackfyres at Redgrass Field!

    The end with a Bang was The Unifying Force.
    Hopefully we get another. Give it to Stover!

    The reason the EU hasn't gone out with a bang yet is that we really don't know what's happening with it; LucasFilm/Abrams/Disney have said they're not going to limit themselves to stories already told, but that could mean almost anything; are they completely ignoring everything post-ROTJ? Are they going the comic-book-movie route and adapting things broadly, but with room for interpretation/changes? Are they putting a new story in a gap between existing stories, necessitating little more continuity shuffling than was caused by TFU, TCW or TOR? Again, we don't know.

    It's also worth noting that "wiping the entire EU" isn't going to happen, since a significant proportion of it now takes place before ROTJ, and this stuff (including things like SOTE, Scoundrels) would presumably not be affected by the ST.

    Too true, but we weren't talking about the Clone Wars animated series.

    Should we steal the bed curtains--rings and all--while it is lying there?

    While they're at it I politely request the complete Underworld series and Super Episodes I-III for SNES. And Ewok Adventure 3.

    Super The Phantom Menace, Super Attack of the Clones, and Super Revenge of the Sith would be swell. Plus radio dramas.

    Except that the stated spinoffs would probably be the 'early days of Fett/Solo/etc etc'. Also, Rebels. Nothing is off limits. The idea that only the post-NR EU would go is wishful thinking, mostly by people that have an intense dislike of some of the post-NR EU.

    I think the events of TCW and TFU will be included in this new post RotJ, since they were backed heavily by Lucas. I also don't think Disney will adhere heavily with established RotJ Old Canon, but will pick and choose whatever happens to 'look good.'

    TUF is still my end to it. The one that made sense.

    There is a point to this. Wouldn't the final bang be the end of Legacy 2? I know there's all kinds of possibilities to keep Legacy mostly intact in spite of the ST, but honestly, Legacy isn't just "Star Wars of the Future", it's an extrapolation of all that stuff with the Fels and the Vong and the Hapans and the Republic Jedi survivors and Mara and Luke's Jedi Order.
