    Lucas hated the Holiday Special, disowned it, and never has he considered it a part of 'canon'.

    It was still better than the ST though.

    But yeah... Crystal Star shudder.


    I would actually Fate of the Jedi is worse what with Aboloth and Troy's weird views on the Force and the afterlife.

    I really wanted to like FotJ, especially when they started throwing in hints of Krayt and Mortis. But yeah, it got weird.

    I don't know how you missed it. Darthsatan and I used to have some of the biggest EU arguments ever! Though it has been over a decade ago.
    Oh boy those were fun times.

    I used to criticize it heavily, but since I stuck mostly to the vintage board and Wuher's, I probably never got exposed to the great EU wars.

    the phrase canon didn't exist for SW till the novels began in the early 90s, there was simply no need for it, SW was just SW then. the fact that one at any time would assume the HS had any actual narrative intentions is mind boggling in and of itself. It was what it was.
