man I really just can't with the star wars eu, I wanted to check ig-88's wiki out of curiosity and apparently not only is he a bounty hunter droid, he's also a secret leader of a group of evil robots who want to destroy all biological beings and has 3 clones of himself to keep the facade of a mercenary while planning the extermination of all living beings on secret like.... why are star wars writers this way

the expanded universe was the result of hundreds of writers all trying to expand upon six movies’ worth of material without much regard for stepping on each others’ toes, and then lucasfilm trying to fit what is essentially 35 years’ worth of high-profile fanfiction into one cohesive canon

the end result is an absolute mess and i wouldn’t have it any other way
