Star-Wars-Rogue-Squadron-Main

 

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm, and in effect, the entirety of the Star Wars universe, it quickly went about consolidating the enormous number of canon and non-canon stories. What was known as the Extended Universe (EU), featuring books, comics, and other media based on the Star Wars universe, was re-categorized as “Legends." The official Star Wars canon was narrowed down to the six official films, the Clone Wars and Rebels cartoons, and some new illustrated and written media.

Master Chief from the Halo franchise is one of the most popular and modern examples.

A hulking, powerful, space-marine, Master Chief is a cybernetically-enhanced supersoldier with little to no personality. This allows players to project their own selves onto this otherworldly icon of human heroism and science fiction awesomeness.
