    I feel a little sad about understanding the metaphysics of star wars

    There were a couple gems in New Jedi Order.

    Specifically-Star By Star/the Allston books

    the metaphysics are not hard

    the force = deus ex machina

    the new jedi order had too much angst. star wars should not have angst (episode II & III had same problem)

    Really.

    Star Wars books should basically just consist of Wraith Squadron's antics

    I stopped reading them around the time New Jedi Order started up.

    Everyone just kept getting older, in every sense.

    In other places, it's all:

    Tomer: "What's this?"
    Cabinet: "Wt's ths?"
    Wedge: "Cabinet."
    Tomer: "I know it's a cabinet, but it's talking."
    Cabinet: "...ts tlkng"
    Janson: "Oh, that. It's the Cartaan Minister of Crawling Into Very Small Spaces."
    Tycho: "He bet Wedge he could fold himself in that cabinet, around the shelves and all."
    Hobbie: "Never bet against Wedge. The Minister gets to stay in there until he admits that it was a stupid bet and that Wedge doesn't owe him anything."

    Yes, so is their artistic interpretation of black people.

    I liked a set of books about Honor Harrington when I was younger. I don't know if they hold up. They were more about frigate/cruiser level combat.

    How does he do it? Long has the Star Wars EU gone unattacked! Long has it been regarded as unassailable! But Defender doesn't take 'impossible' for an answer!

    Yes, that was really the absolute best attack that I could make, and it took months to plan! I'm glad to see that you were impressed, since I am very deeply concerned about your opinions. I mean, who wouldn't be, right?

    That's not nearly as upsetting to me as the fact that they apparently made him get married and have kids.

    Yeah, I like Star Wars, too. Someday I'm hoping they make episodes one through three, because it would be bad ass to see how Anakin turns evil.

    Also, if you don't like people pointing out that you like terrible things, don't eat turds with a spoon in public.

    In Return Of The Jedi, that's what I think he means. He gets pulled into the Sarlaac (sp?), the big mouth-thing in the desert, and it's implied that once you get pulled in there, you will never get back out.

    Oh, yeah. Even though I think it was kind of a weak death (woops, blind guy bumped into my back) I think it's even weaker for him to have survived it because of his armor.

    I mean, I know it's mandalorian or whatever, but if you look at him most of his body is covered in just cloth.

    I can't even fucking believe I'm going to get into this conversation, but I don't think it is unreasonable to assume that a dude with a goddamn jetpack and laserguns couldn't possibly get out of a monster that digests you over the course of a bunch of years.

    god, I feel filthy right now.

    Don't worry. You get used to the filth. It becomes an old friend in time. On friday nights you turn to the filth and ask it if you should perhaps clean up and go hang out with friends, but it silently rubs your thigh and tells you no, no.

    You have the Thrawn Trilogy to finish.

    I have all the books in the Harrington series up to like... 7. They're pretty good when the space combat is on. David Weber's attempts at epic-level space politics is pretty weak, however.

    also, despite the People's Republic (the bad guys) having nearly equivalent tech + a bunch more ships the good guys are always triumphing and arrrrgh after reading the Song of Ice and Fire it's hard to like books with unrealisitic endings anymore.

    Yes, thats how they hook you. You read one good EU novel and another and another. Then those are all gone. So you start reading the less-good ones, then the bad ones.

    Then the mind-blowingly bad ones. You just want that original glory back.

    But its gone. All you have left is the memories, and the filth slowly eclipses those.

    I understand the basic idea that you're getting at here, the issue that I have is that the film presented as "if this thing gets you, you are fucking dead." Being wrapped in tentacles and swallowed into subterranean organs, I mean, I'd expect that shooting your guns might kill the thing, but then you're buried pretty deep underground in a suffocating wall of meat and acid.
