** Saw recalling Steela's death to Jyn in ''Literature/RebelRising'', believing it was [[ItsAllMyFault all his fault]] he got his sister killed since she only fell because of a gunship he shot down that crashed near her. Not only that, but he's bitter that Ahsoka couldn't save her, the Jedi couldn't save the Republic, and everyone saying that Steela ''had'' to die to liberate Onderon only for the entire galaxy to fall under another tyranny.
-->'''Saw:''' Don't give them [the Jedi] another thought. Jedi think they can do anything, but where are they now? All dead. And before that? Sure, they helped, but not enough. [...] [[{{Subtext}} But they couldn't hold on. For all their power, they couldn't hold on, not when it mattered.]]

** ''[[ComicBook/StarWarsTheScreamingCitadel The Screaming Citadel]]'' begins with Luke and Aphra having an EnemyMine, with the two [[HeadbuttingHeroes butting heads]] considering as far as Luke knew, Aphra is/was TheDragon to the very evil that killed innocent people including his father, and Aphra is as abrasive as ever. However, as the situation at the Citadel escalates and the tensions are targeted at Aphra, [[AllLovingHero Luke defends her]], saying that she is his friend. She silently looks at him surprised and genuinely touched that someone is willing to stand by her side not so to gain anything out of it, but because they genuinely care about her. Keep in mind that within the same issue earlier, Aphra dismissed Luke as being some clueless naive poster boy for the Rebellion and was willing to use him as a bomb against the Queen.

However, this becomes a TearJerker at the end of the arc. Scroll down to see why.

** In ''The Screaming Citadel'', despite everyone justifiably looking down on Aphra for being untrustworthy and manipulative, Luke -- who had also looked down on Aphra for the same reasons everyone else does and even stated so at the beginning of the arc -- stands up for her and affirms that she is his friend, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness something she is genuinely touched about]]. Keep in mind she had already threatened to use Luke as a bomb against the Queen earlier in the ''same issue''. Sadly, in the climax of the arc, Aphra attempts to ScrewThisImOuttaHere once again, but this time, [[spoiler:Rur points out that [[HiddenDepths she really does feel guilty and has sadness in her heart]]]], [[ChangedMyMindKid causing her to go back and save the others]]. The arc ends with everyone still disappointed in Aphra for still not having changed her ways, and even Luke rebuffs her, telling her to stay away from him and his friends.

** A faithful adaptation of the ''Literature/XWingSeries'' (as in something similar to how ''[[Literature/StarWarsThrawn Thrawn]]'' was an adaptation of sorts to ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy'') as of ''Literature/AftermathEmpiresEnd'' is near impossible, as Wedge never makes any [[SequelHook nods]] to events from his early piloting career [[FridgeLogic that you'd think would be mentioned as relevant to Phantom Squadron if it did happen]]. In addition, at the end of ''Empire's End'', Wedge decides to become a piloting teacher rather than continue being a pilot, meaning Phantom Squadron can't channel Wraith Squadron.

* ArchivePanic: Averted if you're going by Disney's new Expanded Universe instead of the positively colossal Legends one. You shouldn't have too much of a problem keeping up with all the new material... for now, that is.

* {{Misblamed}}: Given Creator/JJAbrams' reboot of ''Franchise/StarTrek'', don't be surprised if you see fans accusing J.J. of wiping out the ''Star Wars'' EU canon. Also, don't be surprised if you see people blaming Creator/GeorgeLucas for Disney's decision, because... well, [[ScapegoatCreator he's George Lucas]]. Admittedly, the policy does largely follow what was George's own position towards the former EU back when he was in charge, but that was always his position and never pretended otherwise.

Admittedly, the policy does largely follow what was George's own position towards the former EU back when he was in charge, but that was always his position and never pretended otherwise. As for Disney, they did not make the choice to wipe the EU and they're smart enough to let Lucasfilm handle the reins, so ExecutiveMeddling by Disney very rarely happens to the new ''Star Wars'' stories. The EU wipe was decided by Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm.
