The EU has taken Jedi and Sith and turned them into gods and superheroes, not the super soldiers/police they are portrayed as in the films. It makes those such as Anakin, Yoda, and Palpatine, who are supposed to be the best each order has, arguably for all time, and makes them into a bunch of wimps. Who needs a clone army when you can destroy entire fleets with your mind?

On top of that, you have all the other silliness and inconsistencies that come with the EU, like only 3 million clones, people live well into their 120's, and a starfighter that was nearly indestructible and could destroy an entire star system. Yuck.[/rant]

That's the short answer.

Well said... ^^ I agree about how the Jedi have almost become like God... (even though sometimes I enjoy the power) well I just wish they would not make more dumb powers like force breathe or whatever it's called.. Give us fewer powers with more practical uses...

Revan: "Did you annoy this person endlessly, too?"

-Jolee Bindo-: "But from now on you can just think of me as any other non-Jedi in our little group - with a light saber. And Force powers"

-Bastila Shan-: "On which planet were you born?
Revan: Kashyyyk. I'm a Wookiee, can't you tell?"
