Oh, they've been "inconsistencies" when it comes to Star Wars since the very beginning. Thing is, there used to be people who actually bothered to fix them. No one like that's been around for quite some time.
Oh, and as for the two incidents I mentioned before, one can be described as an "inconsistency" (not really, but I can do it for the sake of an argument). The other is a flat out contradiction that no amount of band-aiding can fix.
Gotta wonder what's going on currently
in that galaxy far far away.
Oh, you know. Sith running around all over the place; Control of the Galactic Alliance handed over to a proven nutjob with severe delusions of sanity; nonsensical plots dragged out to eat up page space. Y’know. The usual.
(If you haven’t gathered by now, no, I am not a fan of the most recent novel series.)

Then why allow it to continue? Why would he want to put work out there that doesn't fit his vision?

Maybe we wouldn't bitch so much if he actually made an effort to have his work be more consistent. And to put out the original original trilogy on DVD instead of a new version ever so often on the latest format.

And the problem with that would be...?
Trikeboy wrote:6. Heir to the Empire will be a 24 year old story in 2015 and most Star Wars fans have already read it. Why not have something new?
Because, as Clone Wars and the majority of the novels published in the past five years or so have proven, new does not equal good.
