    Theoretically yes. Many things could be used with no current contradiction but they aren't undisputed because lucasfilm wants the right to revisit and change.

    ..certainly. And what tickles me is this has been the norm since the beginning, yet some fans are up in arms about it. It was no shock to me the LFL disconnect of the old EU/Legends. GL made it clear way back the films (and, later the 2 series) trump any EU. This was always fact in my 40 years as a fan. It doesn't mean material didn't count when it was created back then, I mean it had to make sense and fit, right?, but it did mean it was subject to change moving forward, at LFL's will.

    Yes, GL always trumped the EU, but he almost never went out of his way to. Aside from killing off Anakin Solo due to the confusion thing, he's never made a movie that contradicted the EU. Nor made a movie with new characters but using those EU characters' names or events and changing backstory.

    His stance was, if he mad a movie about certain events, that his overruled EU events if they were similar. Which we all knew He'd likely never do.

    if I remember correctly C-3PO was never built by Anakin til 1999, and the clones were never linked to Fett until 2002, just to name 2 so he did deliberately rewrite/trump EU, plenty of times.

    3 or 4 times isn't plenty, it's a few. Compared to all the books and comics written over the years, versus movies made he's altered maybe a handful of items.

    Disney simply wiped it out.

    Agreed. It's not that many times and vast majority is TCW

    Ok, well, I ain't about to go & perform a study and list here the number of times this action has taken shape over the last 3 decades, some things multiple times, for the sake of arguing over it here to no avail (if you recall GL was in charge of TCW content also, why do you think Maul returned?), I'm only simply stating there shouldn't have been any surprise to any fan the EU was canonically removed... that's all.

    Kotor was still a strong brand and there were also some nice other games studios might think twice about thrwing into the garbage bin. Also i doubt EA was happy and ongoing 200 mil investment declared irrelevant.
