Recently, I delved into the depths of hard-boiled detective fiction on an experimental level for a fic, departing form the more epic style that is associated with SW. Good vs evil, the Force, jedi and Sith etc. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experimented with genre and how turned out. Can SW be adaptable to different genre? I know there are elements of the EU that are political drama (Cloak of Deception), legal drama (The Kyrtos Trap) and existentialism (Shatterpoint). Personally, with detective fiction, I found it wquite interesting as I had to have a very different 'voice' from my other fics and do quite a bit of different research. The characters are also different (one smokes and drinks, another uses drugs, another is only loyal to you for $$$) and the story has a different feel. I can say one thing, doing regular jedi stuff is far easier.
