how philosophical, and what utter bull crap. it is my belief that i do not need to pay taxes. lets see how long i get away with that. it might be my belief but it is wrong. its the OP's belief that EU has no meaning in the starwars universe. well it might e the OPs opinion but its still wrong

He did write all of them. By that he wrote the stories of them, which the screenplays are based on the stories he wrote.

As I said, nothing is stopping you from stating anything is your belief, just because you believe it does not make it true for anyone other than yourself. You are fighting against the fact that someone can hold said belief and getting hung up on that point.

Nobody has stated that the person that chooses to believe the EU is not part of canon is correct for everybody, just that he is free to believe whatever he wishes to believe. For himself, the EU is not canon, for those that choose to believe it is, it is. With how hard you seem to be fighting against this, you are bordering on being thought police.

That's not entirely true. He wrote the screenplays, but for the original three, he did not write the entire stories by himself.

He did write the stories by himself, theres no one else under story written by other then GL. The only screenplay he didn't have a hand in writing was ESB but it still was based on the story he wrote. For the PT, he wrote all 3 of them, same with ANH he wrote that one too. He had another with him write the screenplay for ROTJ though.

The only one of the the original three that he wrote entirely was A New Hope. The other two were collaborations.

Ya I know, he wrote ANH screenplay, didn't write ESB screenplay, and had help writing the screenplay for ROTJ. He did however write all 3 stories.

GL does has the final say on what goes on in the books but he has given the writers some degree of freedom as long as they follow certain guidelines and rules like the "luke, han, leia, boba, wedge cannot be killed off unless I approve it...etc" and somewhere after thrawn triology was written , he decided that the books and comics has to be all interconnected from that point on.

There was a Q&A session with the writers after njo story arc about the decision regarding chewie and ankain solo death. They said that when they were given permission to write the story arc they were given a list of characters by GL that cannot be killed off w/o his permission and any characters that gonna be killed has to be signed off by him as well.

KotOR 1 and 2 are just as approved as every other piece of C Canon, including all of the novels. Also there is, to my knowledge, no series where Luke and Leia had children.

As to your assumption that George Lucas approved KotOR... George Lucas has never played KotOR and knows nothing about it actually. When questioned about the EU, including KotOR Lucas was very clear: "I don't read or play that stuff."

Books are just as valid as games, in fact they are on the same canon level. Please don't disseminate incorrect information like this. It confuses less well informed members of the community.
