Hey, remember that bit where EVERYTHING from the EU wasn't in the movies!? Yea, me neither.
Just sit back and enjoy some exploding goodness.
If this was a filler update down the line I'd be a bit more accomodating. As a first one that isn't set squarely within Star Wars Tales of the Jedi/old Republic era (the proper era, not BW spewfest), irks me considerably.
