Because I know there are a ton of Star Wars books 'n stuff too. Thanks :)
Is Halo lore more complex than Star Wars?
OP Aur Echo
I second this motion, but to answer the OP it's definitely Star Wars.ManiacalSpark wrote:There really should a report option for 'low quality OP' or a minimum word count for OPs before they're allowed to be posted.
You should really contribute more to this if you want there to be a legitimate discussion thread and not just a 'hey look ma I boosted my post count'. You should state if you believe that Halo is or is not and clarify WHY you have those feelings. This is otherwise no better than spam.
Another thing-Star wars is 40 years old this year, as compared to Halo's 18. It has had over twice the amount of time to develop as Halo, so naturally it is more complex and diverse.BrySkye wrote:Star Wars has another advantage over Halo - It's built on a less rocky foundation and, as a franchise, it's prepared to take the step of more thorough retconning, to the point of stripping some material of its canonical status if need be (for better or worse).
The reluctance to go that far with genuinely problematic or unwanted material, or aspects of it, has been an issue with Halo for well over a decade.
Really started to take root with First Strike though.
Got to also understand Star wars is an older franchise. The story telling is by x30 amount of authors and boards created to tell them.UK1V wrote:100% Star Wars, I mean I’m a Halo Lore nut and there is a ton of stuff that’s in the Universe about it, but Star Wars seriously, just the planets and species that live on them would be enough to drown out Halo.
This exactly.DemonButter69 wrote:Star Wars Lore -
Boring cluster f with only a few actually interesting Expanded Universe stories most of which is pointless anyway because Disney threw it in the bin.
Star Wars lore is only "complex" because it's filled with boring waffel (like what every button on Darth Vader's suit does (seriously)). It's bloated and boring.
Halo Lore -
Interesting and doesn't go too in depth as for it to become boring. Leaves some pretty good mysteries which you can head cannon (covenant fringe, precursor's etc). Not saying it's perfect, there are some flaws and imo it leaves some areas too unexplored leaving some areas just unexplored entirely but otherwise it's really good
