I know that the EU is often a topic of debate between fans who believe in strictly "canonical" Star Wars ONLY. However, there are those of us in the fanbase who feel that the Expanded Universe is a nice way to get information that is not covered in the movies. I'm wondering: HOW DO ALL OF YOU FEEL ABOUT THE EU? I personally love the Tales of the Jedi series. Before The Phantom Menace, it was great to read about the glory days of the Sith vs Jedi battles, where mighty Sith plotted not only behind the scenes, but directly campaigned against the Jedi. Exar Kun is one of my favorite characters in all of the Star Wars universe. He is a great character, one who's story almost parallels that of Darth Vader/Anakin's. I also find reading the Visual Dictionaries informative, as they are able to give me technical data on items and characters that were not covered in-depth in the films. I do not feel that not being stated in the film makes them "non-canonical".
