Just finished all 7 Star War films.

I want more of the lore.
I'm told the best source for cannon lore is the video games.

Which ones do I play.
>>
Grimes is ugly btw
>>
>games
>Canon

Only thing canon now is Clone Wars and Rebels since George sperged out.
>>
>>322803137
Clone Wars the animated series?
And Rebels what?

Sorry not familiar with the franchise.
>>
kotor 1 and 2 are the best non film star wars things
>>
>>322803524

Clone Wars (the CG series, not the Tartakovsky one) and Rebels the cartoons.

The only things outside of the movies that are canon now are those two cartoons, the current Marvel comics, a few novels, and EA's Battlefront.
>>
>>322805363
From the vidya only Battlefront is cannon?
What about >>322804071
kotor 1/2 ain't cannon?
>>
>>322805683

They never were according to Lucas, but no, now they officially aren't.
>>
>>322802775
Sorry, OP. Extended Universe lore's been kicked out. Only the movies are legit.
>>
>>322805363
I quite liked what little I saw of the Tartakovsky series. New one any good? The CG really puts me off even a cursory watch

>>322802775
The Battlefront games put the events of the prequel trilogy in a way that makes them seem less cringeworthy & terrible

The KOTOR series is great for lore but is now non-canon
>>
>>322805884
If Lucas dies, who decides what is cannon and what isn't?
>>
>>322802775
>cannon lore
Do they even use cannons in Star Wars?
>>
>>322802775
Nothing from Star Wars is cannon except the movies and the Marvel Comics.

If you want more cannon lore go to /co/ and ask them.
>>
>>322806084
Lucas doesn't even now. All up to Disney.

If Disney dies then it's whoever owns it.

If no one owns it then the canon stays at what it was previously.
>>
>>322806000

The first season is kind of mediocre, but it picks up after a while. Ahsoka is a shit.
>>
>>322802775
>I want more of the lore.
You're doing it wrong. The lore is the worst part of Star Wars.
>>
>>322806084
Lucasfilm Story Group, according to wikipedia
>>
>>322802775
If you watched 7 films, the only lore available is unfortunately of the same abysmal quality as TFA- some comics, the terrible CGI cartoons, and a novel or two.

There is an entire ocean of quality content related to the first 6, but if you're set on incorporating Disney's attempt there's not much to see, and nothing worth seeing.
>>
read the books they are amazing

Here you go OP.
>>
>>322805683

They never were, but the idea was to set them so far back in the past from the movies that they couldn't impact on anything. They were always designed to be self-contained.
>>
How has this not been said yet?

>>322802775
Install Battlefront II, and find a bunch of map-packs online. Modders have mapped out every single conflict in the entire expanded canon.
>>
>>322802775
Only good star wars movies are the 1st two. The rest are all pretty shitty. Even the first two aren't the best things in the entire world. At some points they are a little too campy and corny.
>>
>>322808416
Confirmed canon by JJ.
>>
>>322806147
Starkiller is cannon
>>
>>322807879
Why isn't this stickied somehwere
>>
>>322808989
Because almost no one is autistic enough to care.
>>
>>322802775

None of the following are canon, except for maybe BF and EaW

Kotor and II have the best reading material but is noncanon

Kotor
Kotor II
Battlefront
Battlefront II
Star Wars Jedi Knight series
Jedi Academy
Empire at War Gold

if you want a chill game, play Lego Star Wars and Clone Wars.

>>322806084
It's an asian guy named Leland Chee
>>
>>322808663
get the fuck out
>>
>>322807879
holy shit there are too many novel/comic thingies
>>
>>322808989
Where would it be stickied?

>>>/reddit/
>>
>>322809146
Republic Commando the game and the books are also good.
>>
>>322808989
The star wars general somehow ended up on /co/, it's always linked in the OP.
>>
>yfw they just remade A New Hope for the new movie
>>
>>322809226
>reddit
how does that make any sense
Is reddit filled with stickies or what
>>
>>322809195
That's just since Disney took over and reset the canon. If this was the old canon the image would be way to big to post.
>>
>>322809165
I'm just stating the truth. They aren't that well crafted of movies
>>
>>322806000
The CG looks pretty slick, i liked it. There's the new novel and some comics that are also Canon.
>>
>>322808663
Return Of The Jedi is better than A New Hope.
>>
>>322810135
Return of the Jedi is an objectively bad movie, with an inconsistent tone and plain, bad writing
>>
>>322810135
The scenes with the emperor are the best in the entire series but the rest is worse than the rest of the original trilogy.
>>
>>322810291
>Return of the Jedi is an objectively bad movie
Not really. It's exciting, humorous, has a lot of effective dramatic moments. What more would you want in a space adventure movie?
>>
>>322810135
I just watched A New Hope in the cinema, how can you say its worse than that shit that came out 20+ years ago?
>>
>>322810436
>Jabba's palace
>worse than the rest of the original trilogy
get the fuck out of here m8
>>
If you want to get into the good bits of the eu while you're at it, the dark horse kotor comics are pretty good
>>
>>322810135
>>
>>322810843
>disagreeing with mindless groupthink is bait
Go away please.
>>
>>322805363
The new battlefront is not canon actually, that would would not make sense.
>>
>>322811056
Rotj is a pretty bad movie tbqh
>>
>>322805363
>Clone Wars (the CG series, not the Tartakovsky one)

which one of these is the highly acclaimed one?
>>
>>322813291
In what way?
>>
>>322815092
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jzZOgLH4KU
this scene alone is enough to make me hate the rest of the movie
>>
>>322802775
nothing is cannon anymore not even the movies
>>
It's all fanfiction mate.
>>
>>322817482
that's not in the original movie though
>>
>>322807879

>Those dumb as fuck CGI cartoons are canon
>Muh Darth Maul survived is canon
>All those awesome adventures from the old republic era aren't canon

Why would they do that? It's like they removed all the interesting content and let just shit without any substance.
