But you got to admit: TSL and Kotor left us with some 'Hey..this is cool and different for a change' feeling which is retconned now...
I don't hate these Bioware writers for it, I just think it's a missed chance. We could have some...mystery...in a universe where everything is sourced, explained and made into canon.
