I know I can't be the only Star Wars/Extended Universe fan here. Who else likes EU?

I like it as well, but I still haven't read a lot of the EU books...>_<

Yes, Mara Jade rocks.

My brothers love it!!!

The only contact I've really had with the whole story is playing Jedi Knight and Jedi Knight 2 with Kyle Katran (sp?)

I liked that story but didn't really get into anything else... :(

Sort of. Most of the story takes place in the books, but like STRIPPER mentioned there are also a couple of EU video games, and I think there's even a short movie that was made by some fans.

If you're not familiar with EU, I'd read all of the Timothy Zahn books, Star Wars Union, and MAYBE Children of the Jedi. That should give you a pretty clear idea of what's going on.

Even though a lot of important things happen in the NJO series, I DO NOT recommend reading it. There's a lot of new age stuff in it (more than usual; I'm talking about Alien Godesses and stuff like that.), the characters don't have very good values (i.e. spoiler: Jacen Solo, Han and Leia's oldest son, has a daughter out of wedlock), and they do some terrible things to a few of the main characters (spoiler: They kill of Chewbacca and Anakin Solo-- Han and Leia's youngest son).

In Timothy Zahn's books, the characters tend to have very good values, and the way the Force is talked about, you almost wonder if the author might be a Christian. Also, I like the way he portrays Luke and Mara's marriage-- that's the way I want my marriage to be when I'm an adult.
