So I'm working my way through the New Jedi Order books again. Luke is so annoying in this series! He won't take any damn action! People are dying left right and center and he's worried about aggression Even when the Jedi Order itself is threatened he more worried about hiding and burying his head in the sand than actually fighting evil. This isn't the Luke from the movies, or the Thrawn trilogy. This is a half senile coward that has lost all compassion for normal people. He sits around contemplating the force all day while the real work is left to heros like Kyp and Anakin to actually DO SOMETHING. The Jedi of the prequel era took up the fight against the separatists. Obi-Wan and Yoda taught Luke to continue the fight against the Empire. Luke teaches his students to sit around and meditate. What has happened to Luke? It seems that Zahn reigned in his powers in the Hand of Thrawn books and the other authors have ran with that... over a cliff.
