They're never going to get better if people just meekly take the shit Disney spoon feeds them. Not that they will get better, but I'm not going to stop critisizing them. The old EU is the reason I'm a big Star Wars, I like the movies a lot but I wouldn't consider SW one of my favorite franchises just based on the movies. So I'm never going to completely abandon the books, even if Disney gives no shits about them and only produces about 1 or 2 good books every few years. We may be at the point where we only get good SW books at about the same rate as a leap year happens, but I'll still be paying attention, hoping for something good to come out of the marketing hellscape that is Disney's mishandling of the SW books. They're almost as bad at books as they are good at movies (with mostly great movies with one exception [Solo], although there is more then one good book so the comparison isn't exact).
