Point. And after you read it, you want to read more, so, yeah...

Personally I think the Original Trilogy and anything after that is boring. Nothing in Star Wars seems the same after Episode III.

That kind of threatening behaviour is NOT tolerated here, as you well know.

I usually dismiss anything related to the Original Trilogy or the Galactic Civil War. I just don't like that Era. I guess RC wasn't meant to be part of the mainstream Star Wars story. It was just one of LA's quick money making schemes. That's what sucks about the good stories that people would defiantly love, LA leaves you hanging.

It's part of the Expanded Universe. As a series of books, it can't get any more 'mainstream'.

Nope. EU is anything that wasn't in the movies.

I heard IC2 was still coming out even though it's "non-canon" now..

Yeah but someone other than Karen Traviss is writing it. Why did she quit if they can still write IC2? Of all the Star Wars stories Lucas could ruin, why RC?

Can't we talk about RC once without using Lucas as the scapegoat? It's not his fault. He doesn't control everything Star Wars related. I'm glad Karen Traviss quit. She wasn't a good writer.

Anything in the game that was not seen in the movies could be considered EU.

I think When the Deltas had to go back down, they abandoned the mission and went to save Sev

I've just read on Wookieepedia that Imperial Commando 2 has now been canceled for real!!! Another novel will be taking it's place, and of course it's another boring Galactic Civil War novel. Why can't LA just finish with that era? They've pretty much milked everything from the Galactic Civil War Era's story.

who knows, i just finished IC and and am pretty ticked off that they can't finish a series of 5 books that people have already read. I mean really they have made money of the first 5 books and then they screw us over BS.

Welcome to the forums commander_me. In my opinion if someone else other than Traviss writes about RC's it's Just as relevant as a pointless bit of fanfic

I still would like them to finish it, even if it was a short 100-150 page book.

Yeah, that would be nice. NOT! Lucasarts would just mess it up. Mess it up I tell you!

She doesn't own the RCs, and nor should she solely have the right to write about them. Part of writing for Star Wars is being part of a massive collaborative effort, where no-one has claim over a particular area or character (even if that does lead to the odd... mistake). And while I'd love to class the books in which Traviss kills off my two favourite characters as a 'pointless bit of fanfic', I won't, for precisely that reason.

You are of course free to class it as 'fanfic', but learning to take the good with the bad (of which there is a lot) is all part of being a fan of the EU.

2 favorite characters killed? I thought only one was killed

i kinda hate when authors who didnt make a character kill them off, like when wheeler killed off Ferus Olin in his Rebel Force series, as for IC2 isn't Sue Rostoni writing it? As for Sev, it would be pretty cool if he met up with Kento Marek or something... though he'd probably get killed by him, or not he was pretty uber

I doubt many people on this board have read the Rebel Force. We stick to RC, LoTF, NJO and anything by Zahn, and welcome to the forums
