The Expanded Star Wars Universe
The other thread was straying from its original point and getting cluttered so I thoguht I'd give this its own thread.
What do people think of the Expanded Star Wars Universe? Mainly the events following ROTJ, but also the Sith war etc... ?
I personally liked most of the books published during the time when Bantam had the license, some of my favorites were the Heir to the Empire Trilogy, the X-Wing series, and I, Jedi. They continued the events in the original Trilogy very well and didn't stray from the formula, books like the X-Wing and I, Jedi gave us a view from an alternative perspective which I enjoyed.
The new books, under Del-Rey, are rather ick in, my opinion. I don't like this new alien race that much and what they're doing with the characters. They're also calling in a lot of authors with big NY Times best seller reputations, perhaps to help the books even though they've never nessecarily written anything Sci-Fi etc...
What do you guys think?
