Yeah, I thought it might be a typo as well when the number first popped up... But 3.2 million it is.
I mean, we'll still barely even see a micro-fraction of those worlds explored in future works, and I don't necessarily mind a more consolidated galaxy -- but it's still an odd reduction from Legends(3.2 billion compared to 3.2 million.)
It's also not taking into account all the habitable worlds in the Unknown Regions, but still...
"I am tired of Earth. These people.
I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives."
The book says the Sith were defeated before they could conquer the galaxy. How does that fit with Sidious saying "Once more the Sith will rule the galaxy" in ROTS? I always assumed they did rule the galaxy at some point.
Where does it say in Legends there were 3.2 billion inhabited worlds? Ik the Star Wars RPG says the Empire rules billions of worlds and the Shadows of the Empire sourcebook says the Empire also spans billions of stars. Never seen anything that specific, however.

These things and more."
