Agreed, also Lucas has even said that EU is not his universe, but a parallel one, I just dont get when people try to use what he says and treat is as WoG for EU, when man himslef does not even intend that and it often makes no sense in EU
I think it's more they use his word, because the various authors somewhat...'followed' his word. But not really, because the only thing I really recall them following was that the prime of the Jedi was the PT era.
But yeah, Lucas' word really would only apply to the movies themselves without anything added to it.
Um no Lucas oversaw a ton of things in the continuity so...
You are exactly right. TCW was Lucas' creation, and his regard for the EU -- or, lack thereof -- is notorious. He wrote his own stories, without regard for what lesser writers had already laid out. Filoni following suit.
The Clone Wars Multi-Media project and accompanying lore pretty much mapped most of what occurred between Episodes II & III in the years before Lucas decided to make his own show.
Some more examples besides Durge, Ventress, Aurra, Maul, Ahsoka, Anakin and Grievous would be Savage Opress, A'Sharad Hett, Mother Talzin, Dooku's mindset toward Sidious, Sora Bulq, Quinlan Vos, Cad Bane, the battle of Hypori, how homogenous the Black Sun is, the battle of Kamino, Dooku's Dark Jedi acolytes, Mace's general personality, Mandalore, Dutchess Satine, and Barriss Offee.
1. Actually no Lucas mostly respected the old continuity most of the retcons were Filoni. Not to mention Lucas approved of the EU in many ways and actually oversaw it.
2. True though I have a lot of issues with the project specifically Anakin being knighted 6 months before ROTS
3. Again not Lucas
Yet he oversaw it and is very aware of it and most of the EU has been approved by him. TCW was much more lose with Lucas' approval actually
