I'm looking to delve deeper into EU stories for debating and recreational purposes over the summer. Which novels and comics would you classify as 'essential' in terms of forming a more complete picture of the Star Wars universe as far as the narrative and consequential character feats go? Post your recommendations below!

The New Jedi Order, Dark Nest Trilogy, Legacy of the Force and Fate of the Jedi. Enemy Lines II: Rebel Stand
is the best novel, imo.   Essential Legends Readings? 4037459623

If you're looking for a quick tl;dr of the Yuuzhan Vong War, read Traitor and The Unifying Force. Those two cover all the important details.

Regardless, great to see your here Sas, and it’s awesome to see you looking into the EU Joker. In terms of the overall narrative  and consequential character feats, I would suggest Tales of the Jedi, Dark Empire, and KOTOR/SWTOR content. For KOTOR/SWTOR (as far as debating purposes are concerned) I suggest watching cutscene playthroughs on Youtube.

Some other material that could be helpful includes TFU, the Bane Trilogy, the Revan Novel, Darth Plagueis, and basically any relevant arc from post-ROTJ like DN, FOTJ, Vong War, Legacy, etc.

straight lit. listen to what Az said, but add in Death Star as well. The two greatest books featuring vader ever written, sorry to the Luceno fans, but Steve Perry writes a better Vader than James could hope to.

I appreciate all of the responses, guys. Just out of pure interest, I think I'll start off with the prequel-era material first, specifically with Yoda: Dark Rendezvous. After the bulk of the prequel material is finished (comprising of books like Labyrinth of Evil and The Rise of Darth Vader), I'll dive into the Old Republic era to serve as a historical foundation for the rest of my readings. Can't wait to see if the Old Republic era truly lives up to all the hype.  Essential Legends Readings? 3146861145

Honestly, you should play SWTOR if you get the chance over the summer. Azronger and I have started playing again recently and we’ve been having fun.

You are so innocent Joker, you do not yet realize the futility of existence. The inability to make a change, the depression you will experience will be more than traumatizing...

I might just do that. I played some with Ant in 2015 and enjoyed it quite a bit. Hopefully this time I'll get farther than the Darth Skotia boss. Essential Legends Readings? 3366773415
