Other crazy stupid shit that’s happened in the Star Wars EU:

IG-88 (a bounty hunter droid) had his droid consciousness plugged into the Death Star and for a while WAS the Death Star until it blew up. During this time, he would randomly open and close doors near the Emperor just to fuck with him.

There was a fucking droid (R5-D4) who was force sensitive and was named Skippy the Jedi Droid.

There was a fucking starfighter called the Sun Crusher that had the power to fucking DESTROY ENTIRE STAR SYSTEMS through the sheer power of bullshit or something. we all gave up on that one. 

There was a Jedi named Master Soon Bayts. Or, Master Bayts, for short.

And in the Quinlan Vos comics, there’s aliens called Anzati that eat your life force and your future life force except they call this shit “soup” and it ruins every single moment when people shout “NO! YOU MUST BE CAREFUL OR THEY WILL EAT YOUR SOUP!”

So like. If you think that fucking Kylo Ren finding the helmet is over the top then jesus christ you’ve clearly never touched the EU.

Wil. If you could choose any of the Star Wars droids to be your real life companion, which would it be?

R5-D4. It’s not its fault that it has a bad motivator (and if you look at some of the extra material from Star Wars, you’ll discover that R2-D2 sabotaged it!)
