I'm a fan of splatterhouse films, but not splatterhouse Star Wars. That's something that has always bothered me with Denning. He just flaunts the violence so freaking much. It's not bad enough that you killed a Jedi, but no, you have to mutilate her remains and leave her decapitated corpse in the public for people to find. You can't just have Anakin die saving his friend, he has to be impaled on dozens of spikes. You can't just tear your brother's arm off, you have to then throw him into a box of used syringes before unceremoniously dumping his corpse into an incinerator like some depraved Terminator 2 reference. There's a point where you've gone too far. Denning doesn't have that point.
