Ermahgurd... Hopefully never

Edit: No but seriously.. Wow that makes you think o.0
To be honest, we have nothing to compare it to, but Shakspeare. And even that hasn't ended, and judging by the way it's heading... it wont.
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away fromÖ save one.

1) Q: Jedi or Sith?
A: Sith, it's just so much more fun!

2) Q: Favorite Worlds?
A: Myrkr or Mandalore really a toss-up here.

3) Q:Type of lightsaber, Lightsaber color and fighting style?
A: Jar Kai, emerald, Juyo/Vaapad

4) Q: Favorite Species?
A: Chiss

5) Q:Favorite vehicle?
A: SPHA-T, While I disliked episode 2 the scenes with these things were epic.

6) Q: If you were a Jedi which master would you want?
A: Master Mace Windu (I'd love to try Vaapad)

7) Q: If you were a Sith which master would you want?
A: Darth Cadeus (esoteric abilities ftw. Though questionable morality... but what else does one expect from a Sith?)

8) Q: If you were a Sith, then what would your "Darth" Name Be?
A: Darth Neith (Irish god of war for those wondering)

9) Q: Favorite Film?
A: Episode VI

10) Q: Least favorite film?
A: Episode II (ugh, the lack of chemistry in the love scenes and the lack of real action till the end should have been handled better, as it was I got bored.

11) Q: If you could write your own Star Wars novel, what would it be about?
A: Mandalorians (duh )

12) Q: Which film has your favorite soundtrack?
A: Episode I (Duel of Fates, Maul VS Qui-gon and Kenobi was just so epic) Episode IV comes a very close second.

13) No

14) Q: In your opinion, what is the best thing about the EU?
A: toss up between Mandalorians and Mara Jade . (Cipher 9's story as I played it is up there as well)

15)Q: In your opinion, what are the worst things about the EU?
A:Hippie Mandos far and away. I could live with the thousands of other offences I have if they purged this one.

16) Q: What does Star Wars mean to you?
A:Well, it is an exciting, ever evolving universe where anything is possible. It combines mysticism and technology into a galaxy of opportunities. Heroes and Villains as well as everyday people forced into extreme circumstances duke it out in massive battles over ideology and morality resulting in tests that result in amazing storytelling with dynamic characters. It is a playground for everyone to enjoy as they strap in, find a story, and take off on their own adventure. To me SW means a playground for the imagination, an escape from reality, and a whole galaxy to enjoy.

16)What Does Star Wars mean to you?
1. Jedi

2. Hapes, Dathomir

3. dual phase lightsaber, Cyan color crystal, Djem So

4. If I had to choose something other then human than probably miralukan

5. ULAV I like speed with my vehicles

6. Luke

7. Bane

8. Darth Melodious

9. if you mean star wars film then most of the time I say 6 but sometimes I just feel like 5 is better its hard for to decide if you mean overall.... I cant really awnser because it fluctuates all the time.

10. The Last Airbender for taking one of the greatest shows of all time and destroying everything that was good about it, if you mean star wars then AotC because the mixed messages from the love story side of it was akward and the least well handle of anything in the star wars movies.

11. Ben Skywalker growing up, the oldest we have seen him is 18 its about time we saw more of him.

12. again if star wars then probably episode 1 or episode 5 if something else then that is way to hard to call to much good music out there.

13. Star wars yes..... other wise..... yes I have a few but I don't really collect any more so I guess since this is a do I collect right now the awnser should be no.

14. Continueing the story for me the best thing is I get to see what happened next and as well as loving some of the ideas that came before. The wonderful thing about the star wars universe is its vast enough that you can litteraly do any kind of story and the EU just keeps making it bigger making more stories possible

15. I don't know if I really have something in the EU I hate just sometimes hate the reaction to some of it. Or sometimes how it can be poorly handled, but for the most part I love the EU.

16. A world (universe) of adventure and possibility where both technology and mystical energy fields both exsist in perfect harmony, where big guns and robots exsist but so does the samurai or the fencer holding his own right along side more advanced tech. A place where literally anything that can be thought up can exsist.

1. Sith (I daydream about shooting Force Lightning all the time!)

2. Korriban & Alderaan

3. Double bladed crimson that can be split (ie Kas'im)

4. Human or Sith

5. (don't have a strong enough opinion to say)

6. Yoda

7. Bane or Kun

8. Darth Vortart. (but having just "Achilles" (no Darth) would be b*****)

9. Return of the Sith

10. A New Hope (Keywords: "Least Favorite" as I like all of them a lot but that just happens to be last)

11. Zannah and Cognus adventures

12. Return of the Sith

13. No (but open to possibility later in life)

14. The Old Republic Era and in general that it has become so big over the years and becomes more and more explained but at the same time mysterious and unknown.

15. Authors in competition or characters returning from "supposed to be" dead. When I first see them back I get angry but quickly fall in love again <3

16. An everlasting source of great and interesting entertainment. What everyone should have in their life.

Interesting, would you care to elaborate? I'm just curious since almost everyone else said AotC.

I might have to change my own answer. It is space fantasy so no death till you see a body and even then, but still some people need to just die... or not die in the first place

I like A New Hope but it's my least favorite just because of a random sequence of events. For whatever reason when I was a small grasshopper my father had recorded and saved ESB and ROTJ but couldn't get the opportunity to do the same with ANH. Watched those 2 frequently and we got the original trilogy VHS set when we got TPM. Like most kids (and people in general) I became a huge fan of Darth Maul so TPM would be above the list of ANH as well if I were to watch one.

Now as to AOTC vs ANH. Nowadays I find the romantic scenes and some other lines to be a little forced, lack of chemistry, etc. But I will never forget how awesome I thought it was when it came out. At the time I knew nothing of the EU so seeing someone other than Palpatine (Dooku) use Lightning was amazing. Then what was really really amazing, and still to this day, was when the unexpected old and crippled Yoda walks in the room, blocks the Lightning (something in and of itself I thought was amazing and didn't know could be done), and then is leaping all over the place putting ever other duelists' movie performances to shame! I cannot say enough how much that AOTC climax battle weighs in. So a mix of nostalgia and bad timing/circumstances leads to ANH being "Least" for me.
