Most likely not to avoid confusion But Episode VII not using them any/or a re-started EU doesn't erase them from existence. They are still there, you still enjoyed them. YOu just new and more stories and characters Just because you would be bitter about a fresh start doesn't mean everyone in the fanbase would. And as I've pointed out, the DC problem is quality not the re-start itself. DC has re-started and re-freshed its characters many times. Batman didn't always spend his life training to be Batman, that came later. Superman has crashedon earth as a toddler, infant and a fetus. He has been married to Lois and not married to Lois. The other problem with the DC thing is they've tried to be alittle bit pregent which has caused a lot of confusion (its funny, since thats kind of what you want to do with STar Wars). They wold hav ebeen much better served to just completely re-start the whole thing. The "somethings still counta nd others don't" approach is the worst path to take, and the DC reboot is proving that. I've always said, the quality would have to be there in a re-started EU.
