    I'm sorry if I'm bringing this up again, I'm not gonna read the whole thread but apparently, you've been talking about how bad the prequels are for quite some time

    So, what exactly is bad with them? Poor acting? Poor writing? Too much Jar Jar Binks?
    Or is it all of the above?
    the acting seems bad but that's mostly because the dialogue is god awful

    but yeah just watch the redlettermedia reviews. they are much more informative and entertaining than anything we can post

    because the new episodes were probably aimed at younger people, who don't think he's badass enough by being wise

    Proving that todays generation is stupid for finding this entertaining and that George Lucas is stupid for writing it and greedy for selling out so easily.

    The only games that have canon are Shadows of the Empire (moreso the book than the game) and The Force Unleashed.
    Every game story is Canon (games with multiple choices, Light side is most of the time the canon ending) . Books based on the games I believe are more Canon, and Movie canon is higher then that.

    http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Canon

    Games that allow you to customize your character are confusing, until another game/novel/comic/source book comes out that portrays that character again there is no straight canon of what their gender or race is.

    Jaden (the character you play as in JKA) is in canon a Male Human because he was portrayed as such in later media.

    Ah, I meant G-Canon, as in, they're a part of the film universe, but only those two.

    I think I might be the only person ever to have my JKA and KOTOR characters be black guys.

    But then obi wan just becomes a ghost.

    I dunno if it was obi wan bluffing and he just gets massively called out on it by vader, or if he just meant becoming part of the force (where he can't actually influence events, besides occasionally appearing to luke, but that too could just be luke hallucinating off midichlorians or some shit)

    Actually what he ment by that was becoming one with the force and becoming a force ghost basically. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Force_ghost

    this is darn cool


    Episode 4, 15 seconds at a time done buy a bunch of people around the world

    In 2009, Casey Pugh asked thousands of Internet users to remake "Star Wars: A New Hope" into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.

    SWU has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal. In 2010 we won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.

    Finally, the crowd-sourced project has been stitched together and put online for your streaming pleasure. The "Director's Cut" is a feature-length film that contains hand-picked scenes from the entire StarWarsUncut.com collection.

    Never understood why people hated the prequels. I guess its because I grew up with them and being older now I can't help but enjoy them. I understand their flaws and how they could have been better but there's no point in bitching about it. Everything Star Wars I'm going to love and there's nothing really like it.

    My issue is how ham-fisted the story was in the prequels. And, no offense to Hayden Christianson, but I can't stand Hayden Christianson. I did think McGregor did an excellent job as the young Obi-Wan though.

    Well the people a the Clone Wars TV series are Acknowledging KOTOR's contribution to Star Wars, a Selkath the species from Manaan appeared as a bounty hunter. That is if they were first shown in KOTOR.

    Edited:

    Oh wait, according to wookieepedia their species has shown up before in the Clone Wars. But I think this is the first time one has been a main character, because I never noticed them before.

    Hmm according to Wookieepedia this is the first appearance of a Selkath in 'canon'

    http://www.holonetnews.com/54/news/1352_1.html

    Doesn't say what that came out, but it possible what ever department and Lucasfilm is behind the site were aware of Bioware making that species for KOTOR.

    I'll decide for myself what aspects of Star Wars "actually happened".

    Even more interesting during one the phase for the Mortis special they had Darth Bane and Darth Revan as the Son's advisers

    Quoted from the wiki:
    Darth Revan and Darth Bane, two Sith Lords from the EU, were slated to make appearances as advisors to the Son, but were cut late in production.

    Edited:

    The question is why did they take them out, it would've been SOOO awesome

    Also, video:

    I would post the first seven minutes, but it got taken down.

    Also, i would fix the link, but media tags aren't working.

    Oh cool, watched a bit of the Clone Wars series and I liked what I saw for the most part.
    Mostly the episodes that followed troopers around though, I can't stand Ahsoka... a character that shouldn't even exist.

    The county I live in has the schools closed for the State Fair for whatever reason. Expecting a ton of children to be there.
