This gets into "what is canon". If you're only counting what George Lucas cared about, then no it wasn't. But if a new book, video game, show, comic book, RPG or other tabletop came out, then it was understood that it existed in the same universe as the prior works of the EU. Even when George made his Prequels, fans watched these films with the understanding that earlier things like Exar Kun had come before, and later things like Thrawn and the Yuuzhan Vong came later. If you were at a trivia night and the question was, "Who was Luke Skywalker's wife?" the answer was Mara Jade. "Who was the first person shown to use a double-bladed lightsaber?" well not Darth Maul, but Exar Kun... I first learned about Exar Kun specifically from reading on Darth Maul. If you were making an article about Boba Fett's life, you didn't say he died in the Sarlaac Pit with a decisive burp. When Grey's Anatomy wanted to depict a character who was a huge Star Wars fan, she knew that Han and Leia's children were the twins Jaina and Jacen. 10 minutes ago, KestrelPi said: It's only beautiful for the very small minority of people who care, though. The problem is: this mindframe is the one that creates The Rise of Skywalker. "We don't need to please the small minority of nerds. To most people, Star Wars is just pew pew kaboom adventure!"
