    While we knew in our hearts the Expanded Universe concerning the Big 3 was irrevocably derailed by the time we read Invincible, this is the book where we just couldn't lie to ourselves about it anymore.

    In which some stupid pet lizard kills a well-reasoned and well-intentioned man because Lolz and Troy Denning said so

    Fate of the Jedi's time-killing mode continues with a single witness's testimony taking up the entirety of the Tahiri's-trial subplot; the Masters of the Jedi Council are embarrassingly reduced to squabbling and shouting six-year-olds; Han and Leia continue their terrible parenting by bringing a seven-year-old into a potential war zone; and the super-scary-Lovecraftian big badguy is killed yet again, bringing any chance we had of taking her seriously down with her... why in Waru's name are we still reading this crap?

    Having survived Karen Traviss's brutal onslaught the Jedi Order, bloodied but still standing, takes a moment to survey the battlefield, and is accidentally clobbered over the back of the head by its endearingly incompetent ally Troy Denning.

    I don't approve of Traviss-bashing, but I love a good Denning bash-fest and that was plain funny, so I give my like to you.

    The Jedi do everything they could possibly do wrong and nothing makes sense, and we're supposed to cheer because hey, they're the good-guy-murdering good guys.

    Is this the one where the Sith High Lord guy milks Abeloth with his mouth?

    Yes. But he milks from her finger, not...

    Ugh. Just, ugh.

    Where a Sith ship called Ship pops up, a lake of intelligence called the Pool of Knowledge guides Luke, and sweet Force what all the fans want - Callista is back!

    Barely even remember this one. All the FotJ books slur together for me.

    The Jedi overthrowing the government, of course. I've already got a killer set up for that.

    Too bad we can't submit multiple entries, this series is the perfect set-up for so many jokes. If the series had been more self-aware it probably would have helped but that would require being aware of their own flaws (which instead they view as strengths).

    The original rule, as set by our previous despotic oppressor, is actually two entries per person. I think two's a good number; by the point you hit three, you're already dividing your own likes too much.

    How can they title this book "Vortex" and not even mention the planet?

    Heh, I remember when Coop set that rule. It was right after someone posted 4 entries in a row. So basically, it's the same thing that happened with FDR and presidential terms. :p
