I just found this by accident. It's info on a canceled Star Wars book from 1994 that would've explained humans as refugees from our galaxy (from our future, who were thrust billions of years into the past by a wormhole), as well as tying the Star Wars characters to American Graffiti and THX-1138.

Not sure it would've been the right way to go, but it makes for some interesting reading.

Might be the best thing KJA did for all of the EU by rejecting that concept.

I heard about this a while ago but never read the chapters, which I'll try to do later. This definitely is interesting but I'm glad they didn't actually publish it. There are already an awful lot of coincidences within the movies themselves, and connecting them to THX 1138 and American Graffiti would have been a stretch. I'm surprised Indiana Jones wasn't involved here.

Indy was, but in the Lego alternate reality.
