I meant that at some point, it was added to the EU. Dathomir is not smaller, nothing has been removed, things have only been added. Before the male presence on the planet, which obviously existed in some form, was unexplored to my knowledge. Now it is. We also have further insight into Maul's childhood etc. etc.
The male presence wasnt unexplored, they were slaves ussually all decended from the same woman as the women were or they were pirates that landed on the planet and were captured by the women as slaves. Every Mating Season witches from different clans would go to other clans and steal men, doing so made those men their new property. The only way a man earned his freedom is if he saved a Woman. The chanting for basic abilities has been removed, the way their social system worked was completely removed just giving men their own tribe instead of having them intigrated like they were before. The back story of how the people came to be as they are no longer all one race has been removed. A lot was removed from what Dathomir was, and the stuff that was added..... WAS AWESOME!!!!!! but the stuff that was retconned or removed was stupid.

You could do a Maul back story with out dumbing down Dathomir, making its lore a shell of its former self.

Edit: also I think the original was better then brotherhood for my taste, as was said its more emotionally driven and the brotherhood version I saw was severely censored by comparison to the original, and the darker moments which were dark in the original were to bright for me in Brotherhood. If you watch anime reviewers every now and again there was one that said its 2 camps with the differences with the show, ussually hard core anime goers will like the original more while manga and comic fans will like brother hood more as it stays truer to the source material. I prefer anime to the manga's so.... there you go.
