I never see them mention lab-grown non-animal meat. I wonder if they even need it since they have a galaxy full of livestock. Am I right?

  • I guess absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence, so I can't answer definitively, but yeah -- they seem to have lots of livestock everywhere. That is a genuinely unique question! – Carpe CM Apr 12 '16 at 18:40
  • If video games are lore: Then they kind of do in cloning labs of sort. In 'Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds', there is a building that generates food by putting animals in there. However, we do see some domesticated animals on naboo, and after all, there must be a nerf that is herded somewhere in the galaxy. – CBredlow Apr 12 '16 at 18:56
  • Lab-grown meat is somewhat of a new thing. I doubt many will have included it in fiction. – PointlessSpike Apr 13 '16 at 12:51
  • I'd venture that there's not much of a market for it: to the poorest, it would be a luxury. To the middle and upper classes, there's "organic" livestock and wild game. The only other use case I can think of would be dried rations: that'll depend on whether lab meat is really economically more viable. – thegreatjedi Apr 14 '16 at 6:59
  • @CBredlow I'm not sure. Even in the Legends system, only the plot/lore components of games are accepted as EU canon. Mechanics aren't canon. It's a bit hard to tell how much of that building is canon (I had the game too but lbr it's just a lame Age of Empires knock-off). – thegreatjedi Apr 14 '16 at 7:01
