Sadly, Star Wars is basically dead.

I would love to be able to go into details as to why this is the case and what killed it, but the rules forbid this.

Yeah they needed to just keep expanding the EU and maybe Old Republic as well.

It isn't just about the direction the "official" canon went after Disney bought the license. It's the motivation behind those changes, and who they got involved with the films' production, that ended up slitting the franchise's throat.

But again, going any further into that discussion would violate forum regs.

Ugh Star Wars is dead people... Oh well. You'll come around eventually. I did after a year and some good quality commentary on stuff that I didn't like.

I'm not sure, but are you saying that you disagree that Star Wars is dead, or are you saying that you agree, but that we'll all eventually get over it? Your word and grammar choices don't exactly make the point very clear.

Anyway, as a longtime fan of the movies and expanded universe (a huge chunk of my personal library is dedicated to EU novels and canon reference materials), I'm far from thrilled with the franchise's current state.

When the Atlanta lights three fires on your North Carolina from behind an island but fails to realize that I can shoot back with the help of a spotter plane because the island isn't that high:

Well what I meant is I don't see why so many people are still basically upset. I understood why some people didn't like TFA - I didn't like it at first. There are still huge things in it I don't like, but hell there are parts of Empire Strikes Back that I will always think are numb. I'm not trying to tell other people what to think or how to do it, but what I am thinking is that a lot of the super fans, which I am, are being unreasonable and ruining their own experience. It took me a year to figure out that was what I was doing.

On that bit with the EU etc, yeah it would have been cool, but I think we all knew it wasn't going to happen. For one thing, the Expanded Universe had about as much continuity as a game of pick up sticks. Plus the fact that the EU is so massive that even after basically studying it for like 10 years, I really only knew like 20% of the content of 1 limited part of it. Then factor in that for every good thing in the Expanded Universe there were about 20 things that were so bad that they were barely above Twilight Fan Fictions. There was no way Disney were going to buy Star Wars from Lucas and then spend 20 years making movies of crappy books and mediocre comics that were 30 years old. 

I've decided to take the line that I once heard someone use to describe the TV show of Game of Thrones and the books. They are 2 different versions of the same story, like an ancient legend that got changed between 2 different regions of people who both told the story for years and years. Neither version is the same, but they tell the same story and both are true and or correct, despite being wildly different. Just because Disney bought LucasFilm doesn't mean I can't still be a huge Corran Horn fan and love I, Jedi.
