I'm curious why anyone would think we can't fully enjoy a Star Wars game unless it is considered "canon."
Don't Star Wars products marked "Infinities" sell? Or is "canon" a magical way to make more money? Star Wars is fake, none of it is real, and it's constantly changing, and there's too much of it for any one person to keep straight.
That said, I'm withholding my personal opinion until I actually finish this game (beat TFU:USE but only partway into TFU2).
