I hate the post-1999 EU Jedi with every all of myself.

Agree. I can tolerate the prequel-era Jedi to an extent, but it really got my goat when their characteristics were applied to Jedi outside that era.

I also hated this with the Sith. Things like the “Darth” title and red lightsabers kept getting pushed further and further back in the timeline.

I know, right?

I enjoyed the KOTOR comic well enough, but it irked me when one of Exar Kun’s followers turned up with a red lightsaber or when Haazen commented on choosing “Darth Hayze” as his Sith name.

“Mythology is not a lie, mythology is poetry, it is metaphorical. It has been well said that mythology is the penultimate truth — penultimate because the ultimate cannot be put into words. It is beyond words. Beyond images, beyond that bounding rim of the Buddhist Wheel of Becoming. Mythology pitches the mind beyond that rim, to what can be known but not told.”

Too many canceled video games!
That, and there’s too many to choose from. The Yuuzahn Vong, however it’s spelled, invasion was tiring, and only read three of the books. STAR WARS Legacy was readable but very forgettable at best, so I didn’t hate it, but that it just exists. Interesting concept though. Tales of the Jedi looking too much Original Trilogy, in a way, and not ancient.
I also reread the hell out of DARKSABER since I wanted to know more about the Hutts in the 1990s, can’t honestly remember why I reread it so often. Must have been the awesome Drew Struzan artwork.
Hated that there were so many books but not enough comic book adaptations.

I don’t think we read the same comic. The aesthetic of TOTJ is completely dissimilar to the OT aesthetic.

But perhaps you meant to say KOTOR and just got the two confused?

I think that as far as the Legends timeline goes, the “Darth” title and red lightsabers should begin no earlier than 2000 BBY (when the TPM novelization says the Sith were founded) and end with Empire’s End.

Sort of KOTOR too but that’d be for the other thread since I love both games, on PC you see. But I haven’t all the mods yet. I haven’t read any of the Dark Horse Tales of the Jedi comics in years so I’m going by very vague memories.
OH YEAH! No KOTOR III, BATTLEFRONT III, STAR WARS: IMPERIAL COMMANDO, or STAR WARS: 1313! I would have played all four! Damn canceled games.

I was talking about the KOTOR comic series. I’m not a gamer, so I have no personal experience with the games.

I’ve never read the KOTOR comics. I’m not a gamer either, but a video game player.
KOTOR II - The Sith Lords releasing too early. Should have waited awhile, because cut content mods.
