    Palpatine's father's canonical name is Cosinga Palpatine; in some of the larger forums, the cheering went on for a month.

    In which Plagueis protests that he wasn't asleep, he was drunk.

    Why are we doing a summary of a summary?

    To reference Coop's OP:

    Star Wars: Darth Plagueis is The Essential Reader's Companion to the Pre-Prequel Era masquerading as a novel.

    A reference guide to the entire pre-TPM EU that tells you everything about Plagueis except the stuff that you most wanted to know.

    A 300+ page summary on how treachery is the way of the Sith.

    ...what? Sorry, couldn't resist borrowing that line from another novel.

    In which everyone is shocked to discover that Darth Sidious was always an evil, psychopathic bastard - even as a kid!

    The book that shows how much deception is the way of the Sith. If you thought that the main focus would be the big head on the cover and shares his name with the title, then you were deceived.

    side note: anyone else really like the reference to Empire Strikes Back on the cover.

    GL told Luceno not to cover immortality and Force Ghosting.

    Pretty good competition for this one, as expected, but @CT-867-5309 decisively wins his first round, thereby forcing me to type his user name and finally notice the joke.

    Jokes about the cover result in automatic disqualification for being boring.

    In just a few sentences, Luceno gives the fall and death of Jacen more emotional impact than the entire Legacy of the Force series.

    Han, Leia, and Allana take a vacation, and because of this, this is the only Star Wars book ever where the villain doesn't die and actually turns out to be not a villain at all.

    I feel it's important to quote them!

    "Deep in the Force, Leia fed stamina to Poste and strength to Allana and support to Han, whose fear for Leia and Allana's safety was eroding his ability to stabilize the ship. Like Leia, he was desperate to keep Allana from harm. But buried deep under his anguish he was thinking of Jacen.

    "Calling to Jacen for help.

    "For the first time, Leia realized the full depths of Han's pain and grief."

    Aw man it gets me teary eyed seeing Jacen's fate actually register with his father.

    Seeking to make a clever play on words, Han, Leia and Allana Amelia decide to experience the plot of The Maltese Falcon for themselves, but even that awesome homage pales in comparison to the revelation that Lando finally has a son, the aptly named Chance Calrissian, AKA Lando Jr.

    James Luceno shows how post-NJO stories are done with a fun one-off adventure that draws from prior EU and treats LOTF with a combination of actual emotional resonance, mockery, and as much ignoring as possible.
