    I want to see a really good Kyp Durron story, like Bruce Willis's Last Mand Standing. Kyp gets in between two rival gangs, trying be a problem sovler, but things go south when both sides decide to take him out.

    More novels about the NJO Jedi, particularly Kyp, Corran, and Kyle. I'd love a novel featuring any of those 3 as the main hero.

    Hell, why not all three? They can sport snazy trench coats and shades and bust some moves. Let the future movies deal with the Big Three -- Del Rey should stick to the EU Old Guard.

    I just started Darth Bane: Path of Destruction yesterday and read Darth Plagueis last year, and now I think there needs to be an Order of the Sith Lords series from Cognus to Tenebrous

    Don't personally think we need one on every single member of the Order, but I do support more novels concerning some of them.

    Oh sorry let me clarify. What I meant was like every other Darth like is started with Bane, Zannah, and a little of Cognus and all we really know is a little of Tenebrous, then Plagueis, Sidious (Maul, Tyrannus, and Vader) so just not all but like every other

    I'd like to see more Sith books that continue where Dynasty of Evil left off. Start with Zannah and Cognus and take a decade or two to go through all the Sith Lords leading up to Plagueis. I'm really interested in the story of Gean/Gravid based on what we've heard about them.

    I doubt they'll ever stop adding on to the EU.

    They should make a Jango Fett novel.

    A Yuuzhan War horror story would be a great idea. ^^^

    It'll probably never happen, but I'd love to see something, anything, set in the Empire of the Hand. Pre- or Post- its discovery by Luke and Mara.

    I'd certainly like to see a few more NJO-era Jedi books in the vein of Kemp's Jaden duology or Scourge. I'd even take an anthology like the Tales books if novels would be impractical.

    Of course, a sequel in some form to The Force Unleashed II. Hopefully, we won't have to wait as long as the Crimson Empire fans did.

    TFU has more fans and makes a lot more money for the SW title than Crimson Empire though, so hopefully while see that sometime soon. As far as I know, Crimson Empire isn't even complete itself.

    I don't know where I saw this, probably YouTube, but somebody had this great idea that the Dark Apprentice gets killed off by Ben Kenobi in the Dune Sea.

    Hear, hear! Preferably one in which Tahl has a sizable role. (I'm a big sucker for the Jedi Appentice books – objectively speaking I know they aren't all that great, but I read them as a teenager and they have a certain nostalgic value to me. :)) Actually, make that a novel about Tahl, period. :p She has great character potential and I for one would love to see her on her own, and not always attached to Qui-Gon. Though a novel about Qui-Gon with or without her is still a novel I would read.

    Also, could we have an Alderaan centric novel that would once and for all fix all the continuity glitches related to the Alderaan Ascendancy Contention? I'm dying to know more about the Organa family, from Bail's heretofore unnamed father to his mother Mazicia to his three sisters, and how he got together with Breha.

    I would definitely welcome books which focus on some of the Sith Dynasty after Bane.
    I am very interested in how the Rule of Two worked across the many generations. Not all are necessary, but like in Darth Plagueis, you learn about the closest Sith to the focus of the story like we learnt about Gravid, Guile, Tenebrous, Tenebrous' Master, Gean.

    It would be good to see how they managed dual lives, Hego Damask /Plagueis, Rugess Nome/ Tenebrous, Palpatine / Sidious. I love their alter egos/masks as respectable people.

    Would be good to see some specialist like Nome was a starship designer, one of the Sith could have been a doctor who had a high success rate and was recruited by a Master to serve as an apprentice.

    All the intrigue, double lives, plotting and double crossing makes for interesting lives!

    I would love to see novels which cover the period between Zannah/Cognus and Plagueis/Sidious featuring the Banite Sith in their building of their secret order. It would be amazing to see how each contributed, each pushed forward and each held back, how each rose and each fell, how each apprentice ascended and those who didn't cut it.

    I loved the secret aliases and identities as masks of their true selves in occupations which in some way contributed wealth, influence or both to the Sith order.

    I would also love to see the philosophy of Bane continued, warped and reinterpreted. It would be fantastic to see the training of apprentices, the expulsion of heretics and the conquest of masters

    they may have already been mentioned but here's what i want:

    Darth Tyrannus (James Luceno)

    Dark Empire (Mathew Stover)

    A series of New Sith Wars novels by JJM

    The Mandalorian Wars (JJM)

    A finale for the great Crosscurrent/Riptide duology

    An anthology set during the GCW, showing the Empire spreading peace and justice through the galaxy :p

    Given that the post-Endor EU is at risk of losing its canon status, I'd prefer to see more novels from eras prior to that, from the OT to far distant ones like Dawn of the Jedi, the Sith Empire in the days of Marka Ragnos and Naga Sadow, and The Old Republic. A three-four book series focusing on particularly important/controversial members of the Banite Sith would also greatly interest me. Once Ep VII has hit theaters, however, I'd like to see novels based on ST characters/events.

    In Knights of the Old Republic, on Taris there's an assassin named Selven who you can kill for a bounty. If you ask for her description and why she has a price on her head, you learn that there was a feud between the Organa and Ulgo families, and someone hired Selven to assassinate the Ulgo family. The Ulgo family is most likely the family that Trask Ulgo is a part of (the guy that gets killed by Darth Bandon in the very beginning of the game on the Endar Spire), while the Organa family most likely refers to Bail, etc.

    As for future books I would like to see, I would like to see a novel that covers Bastila Shan and how she became Darth Malak's apprentice in such a short amount of time. The scene where Malak is torturing Bastila is shown in the game, but is completely unknown how she eventually gave in and what she did as his apprentice prior to encountering Revan, Jolee, and Juhani inside the Rakatan Temple.

    While I would love to see better treatment of Kotor (especially KotorII) characters in the novels, I feel like Bastilla is an easy case. She had a lot of pride and was egotistical about her special gift. Malak used this against her.

    There is one Prequel in betweener novel that I would love to see be made is of Yoda vs the rogue Jedi where he defeats the rogue Jedi on Dagobah.

    The Yoda novel Dark Rendevzhou or whatever it explains it a little. Even in Heir to the Empire Luke talks about it also

    This is true, however I believe there was still more to it. How did she prove herself worthy of being Malak's Sith apprentice other than already having a reputation as a Jedi with a gifted skill? How did Malak know she would be loyal? A Bastila novel would also give them an opportunity to explore her childhood (this would be a good prologue), how she was found by the Jedi, her training, capturing Revan, becoming Malak's apprentice, etc.

    This may not be the best forum to voice this, but I wouldn't mind seeing that first Obi-Wan and Satine encounter in written form.
