WARNING: THIS THREAD WILL HAVE DISCUSSIONS ABOUT CRUCIAL PLOT POINTS OF THE LATEST STAR WARS MOVIE
Since Disney bought the rights from the Star Wars franchise, most of the Expanded Universe (all of the books, comic books, games and séries that are based on the Star Wars setting) became officially non canon. This change is viewed by many as a double edged lightsaber, since at the same time brought a breath of fresh air to the franchise, disentangled some of the mess of contradictions that the timeline had become and got rid of some of the stupidest parts of the series (like the Palpatine Cloning facility and the ridiculous power scaling of the latest books) but also deprived us of the Timothy Zahn book series, the Yuuzhan Vong Wars and Boba Fetts's post Sarlacc Pit adventures.
An important note: In this comparison I'm only talking about the POST EPISODE VI STORIES OF THE EXPANDED UNIVERSE. To me the Old Republic, the Tartakovsky Clone Wars cartoon and the Darth Plagueis novel are still canon, damn it!
So... Was it worth it to give up of the New Republic and Legacy Eras for the New Order and this new world of possiblities?
