212 Squadron - "The Old Man's Eyes And Ears"
But then again, the new trilogy didnt do any good too, so its not just a failure of the Expanded Universe.
The prequel trilogy is soaked with Greek Tragedy and Old Testament metaphor. The problem is our Internet Generation has convinced its self to remain stupid on this. Theres way more nuance and thought put into the prequels - the Jedi live in a white tower, condone corruption, slavery, gambling as long as it keeps them "neutral", etc - than anything anyone bothers to really point out.
The prequels work and function with the exact same tone and ideas as the original movies. None of the books - even the good ones - work that way in any form or structure.
