I am aware of the quotes. I do own every release of the movies. What I was contending was that there is a quote referring to the actual Old Republic era, not the Ruusan Reformations.

Actually SWTOR now forms part of Legends and does quality as part of canon.

Alec Guiness quote, posted after me wasnt tied to Russan Reformation because he specifically talks about the time period SWTOR takes place in.

Thats not in the New essential guide to the Force.

Actually the game is in a huge grey area, it's not known if it's canon or not. Keep in mind in Jennifer Heddle's tweet when asked about the videogames specifically she said not to take what she says about them 100 percent just yet since they're a huge grey area, especially TOR since it's an ongoing project

Did it ever occur to you that Ben Kenobi was maybe, just maybe, referring to the time not even two decades prior? He was referring to the events from the Ruusan Reformations to the events of Revenge of the Sith.

Also, considering the release date of SWTOR and the Essential Guide to the Force, I'm 99% positive that SWTOR would not be referenced by that particular book (which I own).

I'm quite certain that nothing prior to the Ruusan Reformations/New Sith Wars is referenced in the movies.

Old Republic>Russan Reformation>Star Wars episode 1

Even if Obi Wan meant the Russan Reformation, everything before is continuity or S-cannon Legends.

We know he did. Stuff like this and the quote from Sio Bibble were cleared up a very long time ago.

You dont understand,

Old republic was a term used to classify KOTOR era, Russan takes place after and by then the code changed but thats it, Old republic was mentioned in the movies hence cannon.

SWTOR>Russan Reform in cannon level.

Just ignore him. He will argue that what he says is right no matter how many facts you present that prove him wrong. let the guy spout his nonsense and allow him to show what kind of fool he is. Not worth your time and energy, not to mention mental stability, to argue with him. You can't fix stupid.
