As far as I can tell everythying they have taken from the EU are all characters who have been active before the post RotJ. Mara Jade is the Emperor's Hand, rather than Talon Kaarde's sidekick/Luke's Wife, Kyle Katarn and Dash Rendar are both characters who were both concurrent with the films, rather than just after. Nothing they have produced is as of yet incompatible with whatever Disney do with the post-RotJ canon.

 

Of course my personal canon now extends to the original films and the Heir to the Empire trilogy, so I couldn't give a toss, except as interesting ideas.

It's my understanding that Kyle's stint as a Jedi begins several years after RotJ.  I don't get why they're stretching a few years forward for the game when they seen usually very committed to the original trilogy for a timeline, at least at this point.

Well, if they stayed within the time-frame of IV-VI, there are only three* Jedi: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Luke Skywalker.  The Jedi faction would be pretty hard to round out if they didn't stretch out to the New Jedi Order established by Luke Skywalker post-RotJ. From that perspective, I can see why Kyle gets to be a Jedi in this game.

 

*(At least, those are the only three that I'm aware of. I suppose we don't know what happened to Kota, but I heard that TFU was scrapped as cannon pretty soon after its release. And I have no idea what happened to any surviving Jedi from the Coruscant Nights series.)

Jax Pavan, Dass Jennir, and K'Kruhk were all active during that time period as well.

Aren't we already getting an Olin card? I thought I saw him spoiled a while back.

Yes.  He'll be out in the last pack of the cycle.

Yes my post was in response to Budgernaut and the number of Jedi active during Civil War.

Do we think they'll incorporate the Sequel Trilogy in some way?

I bet they will include the Rebels cartoon before the sequel trilogy

I think there's a fair chance we see a Rebels deluxe box some time next year after the first season wraps up.
