Haven't we had this thread already?

Karpyshyn is worth mentioning but for the title of absolute worst he's edged out by the likes of Traviss, Denning and the TCW crew.

Traviss is responsible for some of the worst things to grace the EU but at least has the RC books to her name and the TCW lot have a few good episodes despite some of the trash they spew out. On the other hand, I can't think of anything Denning's written that's particularly good, and he's got his fair share of rubbish as well. So he's probably the worst on average for me.

The 2D Shorts Show was pretty good. The CGI one was kind meh to Ok, but I put that down to more Studio Stupidity then anything else.

thumb up Dooku losing a fight where he ragdolls his opponent twice is terrible writing, yea.

But the crappy aotc-tier om-com they were going for makes the novel terrible.

This guy. He made Maul into a joke and made Grievous' backstory into utter bullcrap, while hailing his annoying little pet Ahsoka. And there were gigantic amounts of filler in the shows.

Mishandling specific characters is hardly worse than writing an overall sh!t story. TCW had fantastic characterization, action sequences, and dialogue and hence Feloni deserves credit where it's due. He did struggle with Rebels though.

Well, it's nice to see you come from the Zoltan school of utterly despising Ahsoka.

A little soft wording there. Though I think it's everyone not just him.

I think it's that he was jealous of the Jedi and thus chose the improvements. It's pretty crappy. Nothing compared to his tragic Legends story, where he was interesting. I'm not sure if he was jealous of the Jedi (I just heard that) but I know for sure he chose to become that cyborg/robot (he said this in the TCW episode where Kit and Nahdar fight him in his lair) which is pretty dumb IMO.
