Personally I loved it.
It was ****ing retarded.
You have this wondrous galaxy that Lucas initially created in which there was this spiritual "Force" anyone could tap into, if they believed, which gave them super human power. The Force was all that was good in the universe.
So, what's the happens in the very first
Lucasfilm sanctioned novels? Some jackass writes in a new species that negates the power of the Force. Negates it. Can't feel it. Can't get in touch with it. Basically, he created Kryptonite for Jedi and Force users.
That was BEYOND ****ing stupid. BEYOND.
Hence, new screenwriters and a new set of adventures in the Star Wars galaxy.
