Interesting. (Aaaaaagh, I recently re-read Tatooine Ghost and apparently non-Zahn writers think that's Thrawn's catchphrase. And I say it all the time. Trying to avoid it is - aaaaagh. But it's such a useful word!) There are a couple other things that migrated into Lucas's canon - he liked a drawing of Aayla Secura enough to make her one of the background characters, for instance. All in all, though, he ignores the EU.
*snorts* Talkative Fett. I dislike him, but I've read the Bounty Hunter Wars, and most of what he says there would work fairly well as caption boxes.
Vader trains in front of people? Huh.
Is Xizor in this comic?
Also, Shadows of the Empire has a soundtrack. It should have incorporated Leia's Theme, and honestly I'm a little annoyed that it didn't. I like leitmotifs.
