nostalgia for the OT was a big factor in why people liked episode 1 at the time, yes. the consensus that i remember was basically "well, it's not as good as the originals...but there's a lot of potential for the setting, and it still felt like 'star wars'"

i think it's harder to be generous to it now partially because episodes 2 and 3 squandered any good will toward the prequel setting as a whole. maybe if lucas had held the course on darth jar jar things could have been less of a mess, but of course there are a lot of problems with 2 & 3 that would have been present regardless, like the premature transition to digital filming and the overreliance on green screen that left the actors acting in a void with no living people or actual environment.

Eh, we had a thread for that. And CD still has a thread for that I think. And they both sucked. Let's not make this that thread again.

i can't parse what "that" is in this post

Oof, I loving HATED the EU doing poo poo like this. Lol at that book that made every person in the Mos Eisley cantina a super important player in the galaxy and stories like Skippy the R5 that blew its motivator on purpose to let R2 meet up with Luke. As if that place wasn't loaded with washed up moisture farmers or Hutt minions looking to drown their sorrows in a misty pint of space beer.

the cantina stories are actually way more fun than most of the other books. all of the short story anthologies are pretty decent actually

See, stories about Dengar and Bossk make sense because, well, it makes sense that the Empire would spend bank to catch the people responsible for blowing up Tarkin and his pet project.

Also, Dengar is still my favorite hero from the 2015 Battlefront

congrats, you are the #1 dengar fan in the world by default

I mean, rampant inequality on the fringes of the Republic is kind of a recurring theme. Geonosis is basically the Separatists' third world sweatshop.

yeah the thing is that the separatists are basically composed of the "sith faction" that was built by the sith lords prior to sidious (mostly investment bankers :capitalism:), the people they exploit, and the people that dooku has talked around ideologically or by promising better treatment than the republic has given them. in gathering all of these people together into a faction engineered to lose, palpatine pretty much gathered the wealthiest and the most idealistic people into one place so he could own them and take their stuff

Order 1 was an order in the Catperial Army and Navy. The order stated that all available forces were required to pursue any traitor who attempted to take control of a planet important to the Catpire.
