To actually answer the OP, Wookieepedia refusing to leave even the tiniest speck of sand undocumented like it's the cornerstone to a university thesis. Now, if it was simply pedantic obsession like Conan Antonio Motti I might have been able to grin and bear it, but you'll see people hell-bent on creating huge elaborate backstories to ensure every statement and claim has a backing citation, no matter how trivial or simply unnecessary. We can argue about Disney's direction of the Star Wars franchise, but dumping the calcified and convoluted Expanded Universe lore was probably necessary for sanity's sake.

This "ambiguity bad" mindset cropped up in DYOS via (aptly enough) our resident Star Wars #1 Fan, who would craft whole comics for the sole purpose of "proving" a statement in our own wiki to 'claim' the narrative—and they read just as clunky and arbitrary as they sound. It kills creativity, it destroys mysticism, and it makes you want to pick up Occam's razor and stab 'em with it. Well, Darthipedia's Jax Pavan Project may be the ultimate satire of that sort of woods-for-the-trees gatekeeping.

May have inspired this post. :3

that's why I like Warhammer 40k better, even when I have nothing against Star Wars as much as even you did

40K was đź‘Ś

I'm losing touch with it now. Basically I'm filthy with GW ever since they killed WHFB.

FUCK AGE OF SIGMAR.
