EU books are written for a wide audience and shouldn't be considered high literature but someof them can be interesting, fun reads.

I think my favorite was probably 'I, Jedi" as Corran Horn was one of my favorite EU characters. Most stuff by Zahn is pretty good but the latest one he put out "Scoundrels" I found to be pretty awful IMHO.
Baeric - PT - DPS
Najeh - Assassin - Tank
Lugwrench - Commando - Heals

I haven't read a ton of Star Wars books but I accidentally stumbled upon the Han Solo Trilogy in my younger years and I'm glad that I did. It's a 3 book set by A.C. Crispin - The Paradise Snare, The Hutt Gambit and Rebel Dawn. They provide some back story and span all the way up to moments before meeting Luke and Obi-Wan. They are definitely a good read.

I've only read the Darth Bane books :T I'm looking to move my way up through the timeline. But I loved the Darth Bane books; they were a great introduction to the SW literature world.

Just go into the books with an open mind. Then, once you finish the series, do some research on the controversy.

But I am curious, you said you read until book six or seven...

This. If you stop at book six or seven, you miss the best part of the series.
