Actual mundane reason for the difference: No one has yet created a cardboard Lamborghini! Should anyone wish to remedy this appalling lack they are free to do so! Changing tack - read the Brown trio last night. Darth Vader & Son and Vader's Little Princess are utterly superb, but due to this Jedi Academy can't possibly match them. Brown's skills are far better at capsule observations rather than narrative, which is how Jedi Academy comes undone. Plus Jedi Academy trades too much on US school structures to make it as accessible as the first two.
