Sorry, yeah when I use "nerd" in Star Wars contexts, I specifically mean the rabid EU-fans, who worship the EU as much or even more than the OT-maniacs do the OT. Yeah, I guess that explains why is Grievous a ridiculously overpowered juggernaut,why the MM Clone Wars does absolutely nothing to expand Anakin's character beyond him being an ***hole, why does every single villain have the same basic backstory, and why is the tone far darker than it has to be in a Star Wars story. lol This is rich. Sorry to break it to you but the EU stuff has even less to do with the movies, than Ahsoka does. Regarding Darth Maul's survival...you do realise that your worshipped EU has several far stupider concepts of characters surviving Grievous injuries?
