[CG] Lucasfilm Declares All Star Wars Games Non-Canon - Page 2

Wrong.

The novels in the EU were a type of canon under the "old guard" at LF, and were to be considered storyline and fully legitimate bases for construct.

THIS was the old way.

They just destroyed this.

As a disgusting slap in the face of all of the amazingly talented authors and writers that have contributed to the EU's rich histories and legends, and as a direct assault on the VERY FAN BASE THAT MADE STAR WARS WHAT IT IS.

But they don't care. They only care about making money off of our kids.

Well SCREW THAT NOISE.

[This all may be highly passionate of me, but too bad, you're reading it...]

I've boycotted the upcoming films, ALL SW products and branding, and have even suspended memberships in the two IRL costuming clubs I was a member in until an official posture can be taken on the LF / Disney relationship and their either care for or lack thereof for their fans.
I have for sale (or have sold already) all 639 SW texts I own, and discontinued my SWTOR sub immediately upon the earlier Disney buyout news of those many months ago.

/rant...

But to sum it up, they will lose all of the Deep Dark novel / EU / creationist fanboys, and I hope they are happy.

Oh wait, they are, they have the Clone Wars piles of cash to sate their inhuman desires.




Thanks - T

On another note, I need to watch the Clone Wars.

Yes you do. If for no other reason than it's one of the StarWars movies and you are abiged to watch it lol.

As long as they don't include any parts of the clone wars cartoons in the new films, thats fine by me. I've always considered all the star wars games, stories, etc, separate but equal. ( lets not forget that some of the post movie canon is contradictory and all that. )

I don't want to have watch dumb cartoons because its a disney money maker right now.


Dumb question, this has always bothered me, seveal parts of the SW movies, its roughly stated that at any one time, there are only two sith, a master and apprentice, but in all the books, cartoons, games, etc, there are many more than that.

So is the offical stance back to only two sith at a time thing?

I never really considered the video games canon, they often conflicted with other parts of the EU. But throwing away the entire EU? Awful idea. They basically just wrecked my childhood.

It's strange going from the "Everything is canon" philosophy that meant even the dreaded Star Wars Holiday Special was canon to the new "Nothing is canon" ideology and spitting in the face of hundreds of talented authors and writers and millions of devoted fans.

I was worried Star Wars might get ruined the same way Star Trek was. But this is far worse than the damage caused by the rebooting of Star Trek.

Some of the best fun I've ever had in games was in that exact level doing that exact thing. Also long live g_saberrealisticcombat 1

on topic though: everyone should have expected that they're going to cut down the canon drastically once the new movies are closer. They want to tell a new story without having to worry about the endless amount of comics, games etc.

Well did they say there are absolutely only two, one master one underling? I always thought that what they meant was there are always two, as in at the very least there are two? In the movies there where always two, but could that not just be the two we saw? I mean I always found it impossible that in all the universe there where only ever two guys like that at a time. I figured when they said there are always two, it just meant that at the time the main Sith took an apprentice and he didn't bother with other people of the right type.

I really hated what they did with the Clone Wars TV series. Anakin Skywalker with an apprentice? What a joke.

there is some line I think in ep1 where yoda says there are always to, ( in reference to maul ) but is he ( maul ) the master or the apprentice?

Either way, I just hope the fight scenes are good, only ep3 satisfied me in the duels. I don't have too high hopes for the next few movies. I want a dark night grittyness to SW, that would be sweet.

But since all the canon is out, people can't hate on me when I say darth vader wasn't that bad of a guy at all ( in the first the the worst thing he did in the first 3 was choke a dude )
He didn't even blow up alderon, is was the captian dude.

The only character that I loved in SW was maul, probably the baddest character ever made in the series ( as bad as ep1 was, when you first saw the double light saber in theatre, it was AWESOME ) but no, he had to get chopped in half, and come back as a cartoon spider man in the clone wars.

Well, of course they are non-canon...how could they not be? Unless the story in the game fallows a story already written in a book it is going to be non-cannon.

I am not sure how to take this...

Episode 6 Return Of The Jedi. The finale ending of the Sith threat and freedom restored to the galaxy!

Episode 7 The Next Morning. Something about furry small bears, a princess, and some see through dudes in robes.

Episode 8 Regrets...
