If ROTS was written solely for fans familiar with majority of the EU...

    What changes would have fit well into ROTS if it was written purely for the type of fans that have read almost every page of major star wars fiction out there. This is the place to suggest changes to the movie that would mesh well with EU or confirm your favorite though incorrect theories.

    For example:

    As I originally posted in the ROTS spoiler thread I think it would be cool if Palps and Mace Windu had killed each other in an incredible battle and Anakin comes to find the bodies. He doesn't know what to do at this point as both roads appear closed to him. Shortly after, Sidious arrives back on Coruscant from Byss (possibly even Coruscant if he had his personal cloning facilities there) and proved to Anakin that he truly was stronger than death thereby further drawing Anakin to the dark side. Granted this wouldn't have worked for the causal fan but any fan of DE would have appreciated the nod.

    What else would have been cool to see?

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Um... sorry 'bout that.

    Victory-class Star Destroyers and Dreadnaught-class Cruisers would have been nice.

    :eek: There are fans of DE!?!?!?

    I wouldn't change much. Axe the Kashyyyk parts because there would be no way to keep it the way it is in the books and have a massive battle.

    It would have grossed roughly $150 instead of $150 million in the first four days.

    I'd pay to see two hours of Yoda versus WaruPalps, a superpowerful merging of the great Sith Lord and... something else!

    Waru = True phantom menance perhaps?

    There is really no quicker way to turn any type of written word into pure laughable garbage than by putting the word Waru somewhere in the text.

    Reads OP:

    *Kills self*

    Honestly, who cares? GL doesn't give two beans for the EU. Get over it. As you saw in ROTS, it didn't need anything tacked on. It was good. It does fine without the EU.

    That one's just for you. [face_devil] ;)

    Yeah, she might be SPERM now, but someday, she'll be a barmaid. And then, a fair to middlin Jedi!

    At this point, Anakin should have killed them both.

    There's nothing wrong with Waru. It was a dull read, but Crystal Star was heavily creative.

    The alien can heal. Why not?

    I just google image searched Waru hoping for a pic to show Ex. Apparently Waru is a blond chick in anime. And a beverage?!

    BTW there was nothing that could possibly be Waru. :(
