A couple weeks ago, LucasArts announced at Comic-Con that they were releasing addtional content for The Force Unleashed. Story wise, the content takes place after the uncanonical "Dark" ending to the game where the player has killed Darth Vader and become the Emperor's new right hand man. Because this story doesn't fit into the canon, they have branded it under the "Star Wars Infinities" label.
Infinities was first coined, as far as I understand, in Star Wars Inifinities: A New Hope but has continued to be used in other comics and now a video game.
This has me thinking: Why not the Star Wars Prequels Infinites?
We should all write Del Ray(or Tor or LucasBooks or who ever has the contract or makes the decisions these days...) and have them hire Tim Zahn or somebody to write a Star Wars Infinities Prequel Series. Give him the latitude to write it any way he wants.
I would assemble a small committee for him consisting of Lawrence Kasdan, Tom Veitch, and me (!) to help him. Kasdan for what I hope is obvious reasons, Tom Veitch because he was one of the original EU thinkers and referenced some idea of the Clone Wars a lot in his 1st Dark Empire series (try to forget DE2 and Empire's End) and me so that at least I can be happy with the result.
Heck, if they're good enough, and we wait for ol' George Lucas to pass on to the big star destroyer in the sky... they could even make them into movies...
IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!

"Yeah, well, George says a lot of things..." a young 1997 xhonzi on RASSM
"They're my movies." -George Lucas. 19 people won oscars for their work on Star Wars (1977) and George Lucas wasn't one of them.
Rewrite the Prequels!
