THe EU was finallz better then ever, then the news came...
That's the thing, I've really been enjoying the Star Wars Expanded Universe from the books and comics too. (Never had the time to get in to the video games.) And after my initial shock, I'm even okay now that the EU as I know it may become an "alternate universe." But I'd rather finish reading it all before the new film contradicts it, so that I can enjoy each on their own without the contradictions pulling me out of the story.
