In the EU I thought it was destroyed before ESB...
I could be wrong cause I don't follow the EU universe in detail...

Can someone please explain this... ???

Lucas doesn't follow the EU, and since LucasArts is right there with LucasFilm, they can do anything they want. Granted Lucas might not consider the games as part of the SW continuity either, they also kind of go about their own path as long as it doesn't contradict any events of the movies.

That is just stupid!!!

SO the comic has it's universe...
The movies have thier own "do not touch story"...
The novels have a totally completly different story...

And now the games...

Dammit it sux, why can't GL get someone to make sure all the stories follow the same line...

he's supposed to warp the movies to follow a 1.5 million different stories? :rolleyes: blame the authors, not GL.

I thought Yavin is where Luke set up the new Jedi Temple/training facility, post ROTJ? I don't read most any EU, so I'm not certain.

But yeah, GL for the most part just makes the movies, and then all proceeding EU is made with that film in mind. So that leaves a lot of EU that doesn't mesh well with the movies. No biggy to me, since I only am really interested in the movies.

Where in the EU was Yavin supposed to have been destroyed?

I think it was in a graphic novel, that linked ANH to ESB... It must have been 4 years ago...

I'll never forget cause it also had this stupid story where Vader sat in a mind controlling machine, trying to lure Luke towards the Empire...

However SW is GL work, he should control what the authors write outside the movie line...

It seems to me so far that Lucas does exert a great deal of control over the entire Star Wars continuity.

From comics to books to role playing to video games everything fits together pretty good 99% of the time.

Occasionally you will get an error or two popping up but all in all the general continuity is pretty tight.

Now if you wanna talk screwed up continuity, let's talk Star Trek :D:p

I think that Ep 1 screwed up a lot of that! Ep 2 and 3 will continue!

Yavin was never destroyed. Luke established the Jedi Academy there back in Kevin J. Andersons sucky Jedi Academy Trilogy. Those were published about 1992 so the graphic novel you speak of couldn't have been only 4 years ago. The only EU source I can think of where they might have said Yavin was destroyed is the old Marvel comics because I never read them. But nothing happened to the planet in any recent fiction....



...until the Yuzhan Vong. They took over Yavin in one of the recent New Jedi Order novels. But Jedi Outcast obviously takes place before any of the events in the New Jedi Order books so it still fits.

I haven't even been keeping up with that Yuuzhan VOng nonsense. There's far too many of those New jedi Order books, and the story's only half over...:(

Actually, I find the New Jedi Order books very good. It's been a very refreshing mix to the SW universe. Out of all of them, maybe one or two have been kinda flakey, but the rest have been excellent. I suppose one mans trash is anothers treasure

Me either really. That just goes to show how much of a Star Wars sucker I am:) I'll admit some of the NJO books have been pretty neat, but I don't like a lot of the new characters that they focus on. Jacen and Jaina are interesting in small doses, but I've never liked Anakin. And Tahiri just plain bothers me for some reason.

The problem is that the whole series is supposed to introduce us to the younger cast, so they tend to just ignore the older characters like Luke and Leia. I was really excited when I read the back of the most recent book and it mentioned Luke going on a quest to Coruscant, but then I find out that he has Tahiri tagging along and I lost interest. :(

The stories of Han and Droma though were a lot of fun. I was sad to see him go.

Is it just me or is the New Jedi Order books killing off all the main characters?

Who besides Chewbacca and Anakin Solo has been killed off?

I recently got in touch with my friend that has the comic, O.K. I made half a mistake, Yavin was not destroyed but the rebel base and most of the terrian was wiped out...

There are a few books in the NJO series that weren't exactly great, but taken as a whole I think the series is awesome! There's so much character development and intrigue and ACTION going on that I honestly can't see how any Star Wars fan that has kept up with this series wouldn't LOVE them! I highly recommend them even to non Star Wars fans. These books are great even when taken on their own, as pure science fiction!

I think the Yuuzhan Vong are awesome, and a lot of the newer characters are great if you take the time to see them develop. Ganner Rhysode being a real standout in that sense.

Just look closer! I'm sure you'll enjoy. Even if you refuse to see them as being part of continuity.

Wasn't the jedi academy luke established on "Yavin 4" and Yavin 4 was one of "Yavin's moons? i dunno:confused:

Yavin is a gas giant. Yavin 4 is where the Academy is...it's also where the rebel base was in ANH.

I think the New Jedi Order books are the most depressing series in Star Wars books I have ever read. Usualy you have the bad guy winnig his battle in the first half of the book or series but these books are making you wonder if the republic is going to win at all. Another thing I have been waiting for is someone to kick the Jedi's butt. It finally happened. Stupid Jedi got what they deserved
