Very disappointing and a lot of wasted time to reach that realization. Most of the stories are of little consequence as they can't change Canon. The other stories are lazy and poorly masked attempts to shoehorn persons of color, women as lead characters, and homosexual characters into the Star Wars universe. There is nothing wrong with these goals but they are painting on a canvas that's already been used instead of having the guts to write new stories and see how the general public will respond, fooling others who have invested into these established characters to buy garbage hoping they'll get a few minor details about some plot point they really care about. Save your money on the Disney Star Wars universe and just get downloads of the classic extended universe stories like tales from the Most Eisley cantina. You will enjoy them more.
the stories were great. added great depth to the universe
