Pretty much just the OT. After that, it became too self-referential for its own good to give us decent and authentic storytelling. The PT was just poorly made. I enjoyed TFA, RO, and parts of TLJ for what they were, but they just feel too tacked on at this point.

I honestly think people get too excited about what's "canon", when what we're really talking is what's Star Wars continuity?
I see the OT as one continuity in it's own right, the PT as another. RO doesn't line up with either the PT or the OT so that's on it's own. TFA may have existed in the OT continuity but TLJ... Well that film doesn't even exist in the TFA's continuity! It's also totally on it's own...
It's all canon but that doesn't mean it all needs to be accepted as one narrative thread.

OT, ST. I thought about this for a good moment, and came to the conclusion I don't really count the prequels. And that's not just me hating. When I watch the OT, I'm honestly not thinking about the past established in the prequels. I'm thinking about the past that is established in the dialogue. Yoda training Obi-Wan, not Liam Neeson. Anakin being a good guy turned bad, not a petulant child killer even before he became Vader. Obi-Wan recruiting Anakin for the Clone Wars and his brother being against it, not Owen being some stepbrother Anakin knew for a total of one day. It's not that they're poor movies (though it doesn't help), there's just so much contradictory information that I unconsciously reject it, like a white blood cell for plotholes and bad continuity.
