Yeah, I could be a co-gm if need be. I have enough knowledge about Star Wars myself and if i need some outside help... well... I'm friends with a 54 year old who has every single book, comic, dvd collection, and statue of star wars ever made. I think we're covered in terms of info in that regard. :P
On the topic of EU, I don't know much about Star Wars, but I'd say out of the window with most of it. Keep interesting lore elements, but do away with all characters that are around in that time period and might be relevant. It keeps the potential baggage low for players who have not read every book in that specific part of the EU.
