Obviously you and I don't agree about the EU versus new content in general, but just remember the state of the EU before the Disney acquisition. We weren't getting the Thrawn Trilogy. Sure we had some gems(Kenobi and Scoundrels are 2 of my personal favorites), but we also had Fate of the Jedi followed by Crucible. As much as I still hope for a Sword of the Jedi book or trilogy to tie up the loose ends of the EU, the edge of continuity was a mess.Shadow 14 wrote: ↑January 3rd, 2020, 6:56 amAlthough this is my opinion as well, I had to go with "like none of the episodes" in this poll.
Anything else inclines that I am happy with the trilogy, and I am really not.
My buddy Tom put it best: "The EU has been replaced with an inferior product"!
I liked episode 8 more than 7, and 9 more than 8 , but each episode made the previous one even worse.
So, I "kinda like them" UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, but all in all the trilogy is terrible.
A master piece on how to NOT do a trilogy ("editorial nightmare" comes to mind).
Of course, we also disagree about the quality of everything that came after, so maybe you were a fan of Legacy of the Force randomly killing off Mara jade or the endless treading water of both the Legacy of the Force and Fate of the Jedi series. Between those two series, that's 18 novels in a row that, on the whole, missed the mark(19 if you include Crucible, 23 if you include Millenium Falcon and the Dark Nest Trilogy).
The argument against this is that you liked the Legacy and Dark Times comic series that came out near the end of the Dark Horse run, but I just hate when people talk about the EU without discussing any novels that came out after Vector Prime.
