    You can kill one character in the EU at any time in the timeline you want. Maybe you think characterx should have died during LOTF and you wanted them to die in NJO or maybe you thought Jaina Solo should have died in YJK, the choice is yours!

    Personally I would've had Boba Fett die during TUF in a blaze of glory.

    Or alternatively I would've liked to have seen Zekk die by Jacen's hand during the last third of LOTF. Makes Jaina angry and would have been cool since Zekk was always the one during Star By Star and Dark Journey worrying about the Solo's going over to the dark side.

    Have Jacen kill Lumiya in Betrayal.

    Jacen cut Luke down. Luke died.

    Vergere was a Sith.

    Seriously though, I like how Jacen concludes that if he does not kill Nelani and apprentice himself to Lumiya *at that moment,* then he will not have free will or agency to not kill Luke in the future.

    Boba Fett when he fell into the Sarlaac.
    Bardan Jusik in Order 66 (instead of Etain)
    Jacen Solo in Star by Star (instead of Anakin): lot more story potential to do it that way around.
    Thraken Sal Solo in Ylesia
    Daala in the battle against Bel Iblis

    One character, dude. One.

    YOU MUST CHOOSE.

    Luke at the Mos Eisley Cantina. Obi-Wan gets extra drunk and slices him instead of Ponda.

    If i could kill one species it would be the Yuuzhan Vong. Not because of what they are all about, but for how they made Jedi appear weaker than they should have imho.

    If I could kill one character it would be Admiral Paelleon since I consider him to be old hat in light of the fall of the empire and the rise of the new republic.

    Jacen should have killed Kyle Katarn in Fury or whatever book it was where he failed to kill Kyle Katarn.

    I like the necessary usage of "extra."

    If you want to kill the Vong, I think the Alpha Red virus is still around...
    As for the one character I would kill, it would have to be Darth Maul, hopefully for real this time.

    The Sith species. I hate the idea of a species that embodies a cult.

    The Killiks. Hate them.
    Lumiya.
    I would say Jacen Solo in favor of Anakin but wouldn't be surprised if the authors tried to turn him dark as well. Better dead and a hero than alive to be a villain.

    Boba Fett in the Sarlaac. My hit list is in order of priority.

    Someone please remind me why Corran lived through the NJO without using the words "pet character". Valin and Jysella are right there, Del Rey, waiting to be developed properly. If you can't have the Skywalkers and Solos pass the torch because you can't fade the Big Three to the background, then at least do so with the rest of your EU ensemble the way Allston has with Kell and Tyria.

    Pellaeon should have passed away of old age, much like his longtime New Republic counterpart Ackbar, towards the end of TUF. This would have set the stage for the splintering of the Moff Council, the Remnant's eventual secession from the newly-born Galactic Alliance, a return to Warlord of the Week - God, how the opening of Mercy Kill reminded me how much I miss Warlord of the Week - and Jag's efforts to hold the Empire together.

    Where in the names of all nine Corellian hells is Garm Bel Iblis, and why has he not yet been confirmed for dead? The man is old.

    Finally, if Del Rey must have their bleak and depressing post-NJO era and they want it to have any validity, then there is no choice but to follow through with a true masterstroke:

    Wes Janson Must Die.

    And of course, his mancrush Derek Klivian must be there holding his hand when he goes.

    If you guys thought you bawled when Phanan kicked it, wait 'til you get a load of this.


    EDIT:
    Well, ****.

    Give me Corran, and give me death.



    On re-reading my post, I realize that it must sound like I really hate Zahn and Stackpole.


    EDIT 2:
    Please no and thank you. The Worf Effect is the worst way for a character to go.

    Are Wes and Hobbie the Lenny and Carl of Star Wars?

    I would kill Ric Olié, before TPM, to see how the rest of the cast survived without his vital exposition.

    If everyone said yes, would this shock you?

    Ric Olié was the real chosen one. You know this to be true.

    Ric was essential to Palpatine's defeat. You doomed the galaxy.

    Any villain in the Ewoks cartoon. When did the Ewoks become Batman and just refuse to kill anyone?

    Seriously, I guess I'd have to say Lumiya at the end of the Marvel series, because I really liked Mara Jade. :(

    Technically Lumiya did die in the final issue of Marvel Star Wars.

    It looked to me like she was being hustled away, in a panel after we see her shot and lying on the floor.
